indeed, i do vote for the adorable rat people. though i would not mind seeing any of the lizard men... especially those cute skinks!

the VCs would be way to over powered. if they were toned down you would end up with a wimpy vamp fledgling... how would you handle the whole sunlight would kill you thing? being a VC player i also would like to point out that in actuality VC is not a race as much as they are a faction. the only vamps in the VC are the actual lords and generals. the only unit in the VC army that can tollerate the sunlight would be the necromancer.

the Brits, though viable are a bit too cheesy for my tastes.

"While they have never allied themselves with any of the other Destruction races (with the possible exception of Chaos, which one can assume was involuntary)". . .


This is why I'd thought they'd never be a playable race. Just an MOB race that meddles in both Chaos and Empire objectives.

From what I've read, they're fightened of their own shadows unless they out number it 5 to 1.

They just sound like a good race that would be just fun to kill for both Chaos and Empire.

Companies launch with lame crap like high elves, and withhold the good stuff (like skaven) just so the good stuff will sell x-packs.

gah, I really wish public figures would refrain from posting things of this sort because all it does is taint others who have no idea about the WH IP into thinking your ideas are somehow credible and good.

So you are more than willing to include Clan Pestilens and Skryre but just as willing to dismiss Eshin and Moulder? /rolls eyes.

Your 'speculation' is complete BS and leaving out half of what Skaven are all about (assassins and mutation) shows you know very little about the race in general.

You also include both the weakest and LEAST iconic Skaven with the most powerful as class choices again showing your lack of understanding.

Stormvermin - You chose these as the Tank because they basically 'fit' the part but then admitted they really didnt have much going for them other than that. /yawn

Grey Seer - To compare them with an ArchMage is a travesty. The Grey Seers are Skaven prophets and last time I looked that wasnt the role Archmagi fulfilled in Elf Society. BIG DIFFERENCE. Sure they might be equally powerful from a TT perspective but Grey Seers are MUCH more rare and revered. They should be barking commands from the back line while riding a screaming bell, not in the battle spending most of their time.......healing.

The best setup that includes all four clans is:

Tank - PlagueMonk
MDPS - Assassin
RDPS - Warlock Engineer
Hybrid - Master Moulder w/Rat Ogre

oh please, include high elves and leave skaven out for selling ability?
for one thing skaven is destruction if anything, and elves are order, you cant have one side without the other n00b. So youd have to take out one of the destruction races, who would you choose then?
Elves are in it because they are one of the foremost powers in the warhammer world ofr the side of order. Get over your elf phobia and look up the IP, Im sick of hearing people like you winge about "pansy elves"

Skaven are cool and a good mob to beat up on, but I'd much rather have Vampires and/or Undead.
