A new idea I've been toying with:

Necromantic
2x Golems
2x Wights
2x Ghouls
5x Zombies
Wilhelm Chaney

2x Re-rolls = 1120TV

Necros are Tier 2 so that would leave 80k for skills.

4 starting skills = 2x Block Ghouls, 2x Guard Golems
Normal + Double after game 3 = Tackle Wight, Leader Zombie
2 final skills = Mb Wight, DP Zombie


The idea was that Wilhelm is more handy that 2 skill-less Wolves in a format tight on skills. Str 4 Frenzy provides a surf threat and narrows the pitch, while starting with a Wrestler makes taking Tackle less important.

Thoughts and critique?

not a format I have a lot of experience in so take my advice with caution, but I would personally not like having only 2 rrs at 1120. Sure you get leader after game 3 but that is still 3 games when you are relying on favourable dice. I would do everything I could to get 3 rrs from the off.

I almost always go for 3 re-rolls, but don't really see a way to do it with this team without dropping an important positional.

Maybe if I took 1 Golem?
4 starting skills = 2x Block Ghouls, Guard Golem, Tackle Wight.
Normal + Double after game 3 = Mb Wight, Block Golem (second skill)
2 final skills = 2x DP Zombies, or DP and Kick

I'm not sure a re-roll + zombie is a good swap for a Golem?

Pretty sure we don't buy skills unless they have changed the rules. It is usally spend 110k and pick a fixed number of skills depending on tier.

I'm quite fancying dwarves though I think I might only take one mb and get an extra guard.

We buy skills this time, from a total of 1160 for Tier 1, 1200 for Tier 2 and 1250 for Tier 3. Full rules here: http://www.bbuktc.com/rules/

I assumed Purp was taking dwarves, though I might be mistaken.

You sure you want to take necro. After reading the rules this looks perfect for skaven.

I’m not sure on anything. That’s why we’re after suggestions Wink

What would your Skaven roster be?

Well I don't even know the format clearly so some prep might be needed. Maybe I'll read the rulebook... Surely we want to minmax players and totally spam skills no?

Okay I half read it. My head hurts and not just because I have a cold. Who came up with that? On the up side, there has to be a way to meta that...

Indeed. I think the stronger Tier 2 options are the 2 elf teams and Necros. Chaos are Tier 3 so can start with 7 skills which is interesting.

I thought vampires looked great at 1250 gold, buying 3 blodge vamps plus a ons skill vamp, but then i saw that only one player can have 2 skills extra Sad

Lots of things look great if you haven't read the rules properly, as this thread will attest to Razz
