Battle Report: Warhammer Fantasy Battle 8th Edition – Skaven vs Bretonnia (1400 points)

And another battle behind me. My small (but still growing) Skaven army lost with Bretonnians this time;). What a bugger – the battle was tight and my rolls were so disappointing, so I could probably assume if they were a little bit better I would won this. Well, it happens. I played with Adam from our small FB Warhammer group in Bunkier Store  in Warsaw. It was nice game.

Over the top first – Skaven Assassin. Most of the internet Skaven Tactica compendiums tell you that Assassins are waste of the points.  120 points for average fighter, when ordinary Skaven Chieftain is only 45 points. The difference: Assassin has Weapon Skills 6 and Initiative – 8, while Chieftain has WS 5 and I 6. Of course Assassin has has Dodge Special Save (4+), Poisoned Attacks and he can start the game Hidden in regiment of Clanrats or Stormvermin. But still his stats are not impressive – Chieftain could …
