I noticed the "strategy" section for them is lacking(though not as much as some)

Here is my thoughts, looking for advice from experienced players who've played the team before. I put Tackle as the higher priority over Block on the heavy hitters since they're AV 10 helps them survive and Tackle will lead to more low AV players getting beaten up overall.

Doomwheel
Skills: Break Tackle, Multiple Block/Stand Firm, Guard
Doubles: Tackle, Block

Mechavermin
Skills: Tackle, Block, Guard
Doubles: Jump Up, Dodge

Poisoned Wind Globadier
Skills: Diving Catch, Catch, Sure Feet
Doubles: Strip Ball, Block

Jezzails/Sharpshooters (one as a blitzer one as a bomber)
Skills: Dodge, Nerves of Steel, Side Step <or> Diving Catch, Dodge, Sure Feet
Doubles: Wrestle, Strip Ball <or> Block, Pass Block

Slaves (2+ dedicated foulers, 4+ safety)
Skills: Sneaky Git, Sure Feet <or> Side Step, Diving Tackle
Doubles: Dirty Player <or> Wrestle, Strip Ball

here's my 2 cents...

Doomwheel
Guard, Stand Firm, Break Tackle/Multiple Block;

Machavermin
Block first because it works also passively;

Globardiers
should prioritize their bomber skills, so Hail Mary Pass ASAP;

Jezzails
kind of ballcarriers but unrealiable because of Secret Weapon. Blodge and then whatever suits your taste;

Slaves
Diving Tackle, Side Step, and then... hope they can tie down other stunties.

Thanks! I like your knowledge on them much and will utilize it

Originally I was looking at Jezzails less as passers and more as the Underworld Skaven Thrower where its better to make them into sort of blitzers/safety and then I realized I could toss the bomb to them for HMP if the bomber didn't have it so I figured one blitzer type and one to sit back with the bomber so the bomber didn't have to move to lauch bombs ever, so they could both camp the back field together

Huh. Wouldn't Pass/HMP be the first for the globadiers?

For the mechavermin, I find that having a claw can be quite useful to have against big guys. You're not going to use it much, but when you do, it'll make a difference.

Globadier gets Agility only. Sad but only Jezzails get Passing skills on regular skill ups. Mechavermin can’t mutate except on doubles and I didn’t see too many AV8+ they would have an easy time hitting; so I figured it wasn’t as worthwhile as standing for free on an MA 4 player.

That all said, I just rolled an ST+ on one of my Jezzails - thinking of forgoing it for a General Skill - thoughts?

Globadiers Need passing skills, so pass/Hmp on a double no Need for strip ball/block, it doesn't improve their throwing bombs. Do mechvermins start with Mighty blow? Otherwise second/third skill for them to improve cas. Claw on a double to kill big Monsters with av10/av9 like other mechvermins. I skilled up my slaves with diving catch so that throwing bombs at that Team isn't that dangerous amymore. Slaves improve a lot with block on doubles.

I do like juggernaut on the doomroller, as it can be a poor man's block if blitzing, and I find I blitz with them on a regular basis.

MB before Guard on the Mech.

And takle work too passivlely vs s2 dodge players. But prefer too take block first, less fear of turnovers on bloks, but ssome ohers prefer takle on them or other big guy for the reason i said before.
