[Archive] CD against Skaven 2400

Honeym123:

Hi!

I’m frequently playing a skaven player (used to play Ogre Kingdoms) and I’m having a problem beating him - some of my biggest problems are the A-Bomb and the gutter runners (When I played OK the initiave grenade and spells were a problem too, but not so much now). I can’t figure out what do against him. We play 2400 p ETC. He useally use:

1 A-bomb

2 blocks of slaves of 40

2-3 rat darts

2x10 Gutterrunners

1-3 engineers

1 grey seer

1 regiment of plaugemonks

1 regiment of something else (a little better than slaves)

1 warp lightning cannon

1-3 weapon teams

We play with the ETC restrictions.

Can anyone give me some advice since I would really want to beat him up side down - it dosent matter how “though” the list is and if there would be frowned upon it in the tournament enviorment. He needs to be beaten by the evil dwarfs !:hashut

All advice would be deaply appriciated

Hellcannons for the -1 Ld checks are incredible against skaven, K’daai can deal with any a bombs floating around, plaguemonks aren’t really an issue s3 isn’t doing much to CD’s. What sort of list do you run?

I usally run something like:

1 SP LVL 4 - Lore of shadow
2 Deamonsmiths (for safegaurding cannons) lvl 1 with spirit leach
1 Infernal Castellan

20 Infernal Gaurds
23 Blunderbuss

1 k'daai destroyer
1 hell cannon

1 DS rocket
1 EQ cannon

But I have a problem with the gutterrunners sniping out my smiths and his Grey seer throwing Cracks Call through and especially his WPL.

Kind regards

Meant lore of death :)

EQ = Dreadquake mortar - this is only when i don't take the hell cannon - otherwise I use the flamecannon.
