Hello John, and welcome aboard!! Very Happy

If you haven't done it yet, I recommend that you read all the rules and background knowledge to each of the three warbands Smile Hope it helps ^^

Well, for starters, they are all great warbands. Possessed can be tricky as they start slowly due to cost and limited numbers. The Skaven's leadership can be a bit of a handicap. That leaves undead. Fantastic leader with potential to become even more of a combat monster, top notch henchmen (ghouls), most things in the warband cause fear and great painting and conversion possibilities. I'd go for them, if I were you.

Hard to argue with Sade's points. Although Skaven do have some issues with Leadership values, they have a great deal of character and some cool modeling possibilities. I believe (someone will no doubt correct me if im wrong) that a player can choose a specific clan of skaven (Skryre, Eshin, Pestilins, Moulder) which makes them even more deep in fluff and history.

Hello and welcome!

I'd go with Skaven as they are a very strong warband and I find Undead to be a bit boring because most models lack the ability to run so you have a huge mob that is advancing slowly while the enemy shoots and outmaneuvers you. That's my experience, but others may differ... Smile

Don't you prefer any warband's background or available minis more than the others? That would be the best indication for what to choose.

Me! Me! Pick me! Just don't take any zombies and you'll be right. Everyone else can run apart from the dire wolves who, despite being a bit of a points sink, move at a speedy 9" anyway.

Hi and welcome aboard !

I would go for skaven. Nice movement, and they can have a lot of troops and some decent shooting. But I have never really played, so don't listen to me Very Happy

That's actually the best advice on this thread. Go with the warband whose fluff and models you like best. As I said, they're all good warbands anyway and each has its pros & cons.

Usually "Skaven" refers to the Clan Eshin warband from the rulebook. They are also the best Skaven warband, and the only official one.

There was a Clan Pestilens warband published in Town Cryer 29 (I believe). Personally I find them a bit boring.

Same with the Clan Skryre warband from the Relics of the Crusades supplement. I would love to see them have better (and weirder!) equipment/weapon options.
