Road to Adepticon - Big Brawl list

Friday night is the face-smashing tune-up for Saturday's Warhammer Fantasy Championships, in the form of the Big Brawl. I had plenty of 'Ard Boyz experience with 8th Edition rules in all three rounds last year. The Big Brawl is basically 'Ard Boyz, although now there are no Grand Army rules or Special Characters for me to worry about. I think that is definitely an advantage for my list that is very similar to my 'Ard Boyz lists from last year that faced off against a lot of special characters. Here is the list, let me know what you think.

As always, critiques welcome.

Grey Seer (G), lvl 4 ruin, d3 warpstone, screaming bell, dispel scroll
Grey Seer, lvl 4 plague, d3 warpstone, power scroll
740 Lord

Plague Priest, lvl 1 plague, plague furnace, ironcurse icon
Chieftain, bsb, shield, halberd, standard of discipline
Warlock Engineer, doomrocket
409 Hero

25 Storm Vermin, musician, standard, storm banner
40 Clan Rats, command, shields
30 Clan Rats, command, shields
40 Slaves, musician

  1. Hi, i really like your list. Do you take dreaded 13th on both seers? I guess you try to cast it with six dice every turn with the seer on foot, and when you generate 9-10 powerdice you will go all in with warpstone and try to cast two dreaded 13th in one magic phase?

  2. It is situational and rare for me to try it twice in the same turn, but the option is there. Also 2 seer's in case I fail a dispel or one dies. Too many good spells in the Skaven arsenal to only six dice 13th every turn.

  3. True, i had many games against WoC and DE recently, so i used 13th every turn at his elite units. Its nice with 2 seer's and knowing almost every spell in both lores.

    If you had one grey seer, what lore would you pick?

  4. For my Adepticon list I have to choose my lore before hand and stick to it. I went with 3 Ruin and 1 Plague. I have 1 other caster Plague Priest lvl 1 in the list so I feel it gives me a good shot at powerful spells from both lists. I got Scorch OR Crack's and Wither OR Plague in every game I played in my Primer this weekend. It's still chance, but what isn't in 8th edition.
