    Well the Empire is not the only one with 3, and meanwhile the Wood Elves have only 2.
    And Beastmen and WoC and Norsca. . . well, that sucks. . .
    Beastmen got more FLC Lords than the Empire. Otherwise the Empire is the only Vanilla faction that has gotten it's DLC that is stuck with 3 Lords.
    Unless CA released a Beastmen FLC Lord today the Beastmen have still only 3 Legendary Lords. They've got Morghur thanks to Wood Elves DLC, not with a FLC.

    Most FLC Lords drop with a DLC... Boris got a unique design with the beastmen campaign, yet he is a campaign bonus at best.
    Every wrong is recorded! Every slight against us! Page after Page, etched in blood! Clan Gunnison! Karak Eight-Peaks! Josef Bugman!

    Yes! to Boris Todbringer as playable, subfaction leading Legendary Lord with Starting Position Middenheim instead for the Empire! NO to the lazy way of moving Gelt and Volkmar who both belong to Reikland!

    Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him?

    I can't see where is the problem with the Beastmen. They have 3 Lords, just like Empire and WoC. Let alone Norsca and Wood Elves.

    Should they have more Legendary Lords? Yes.

    Don't know why we're talking about man things or ugly beast things. Begone yes, begone! Yes yes! Skree! You're in skaven land now, yesss, yesss,

    I want Ikit because he has a freakin power armor and would fit skryre theme

    And the Weapons teams which are hopefully what Skaven get in the LP. Not that the LL has to, but it'd fit it nonetheless.

    Wasn't Morghur FLC? Do you need the Wood Elf DLC to get Morghur? Or did he just come with it?

    Also that's off topic.

    On topic: Ikit Claw is my choice.

    Good to see so few folk have the wrong opinion.

    None of them,

    Whoa I'm sensing some hostility against the rats. Oh come on....they're adorable! The beady red eyes. The traitorous plotting. The literal back stabbing. What's not to like? Some of them even have incurable infectious diseases. So kawaii.

    On a serious note, Ikit Claw is my vote for the top rat. But that has more to do with my love of Skaven technological supremacy than Ikit himself. Nothing says scientific mastermind like having technology beyond any other and matched in advancement only by its tendancy to kill the guy using it. Love that ****. Cant make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

    In game top rat is currently, ironically, Tretch. Dudes the most Skaven Skaven that ever Skavened a Skaven. His reliance on being the sneakiest most backstabbing guy on the campaign map at any time leads to some serious campaign hilarity and absolutely vicious Skaven ambushes. Plus you always feel like the underdog who managed to twist the odds back into your favor. Can't recommend him enough.

    The problem with Tretch is absolutely everything made for him would fit better for Thanquol.

    Is he a coward? Yeah, just like Thanquol.

    Is he a backstabber? Yeah, just like Thanquol.

    Is he funny? Yeah, just like Thanquol.

    Besides that, Thanquol also rides a badass Rat Ogre and has access to lore of Ruin.

    Tretch would be fine if he came after 1 lord for each major clan, Queek, and Thanquol. It's not that he's bad in game, he was done just fine by CA as an individual unit and zero context on the entire race. But when you look at the game and Skaven fans he just represents opportunity lost completely through. There was no reason to drop this dissappointment and it could have been easily avoided by looking at any skaven thread on here or Reddit since the start of Game 1 about Skaven. Or it could have been looked at which rats have what purpose in the lore. Tretch is a blip on the radar compared to the likes of Ikkit.

    Ikkit has supreme story relevance. He designed and supervised the building of the warp forges the power of Clan Skyre. Perhaps one of the most powerful of the great clans because they also hold Skavenblight and yes they do in fact hold Skavenblight and defended successfully versus Pestilens in the great war.

    He's designed a fair chunk of those kooky weapons of Skyre.

    He knows magic, he's a engineer supreme that walks around in armor and can murder your in the name of science.

    Clan Skyre is one of the more prominent faces of Skaven, if not their unwashed masses it's death machines. I'd even say people care more about those warplightning cannons than horned rats even they to are a part of this.

    If any clan starts with Skavenblight it should be Skyre, the council of thirteen rules Skaven, but not one of the other council members truely hold Skavenblight. That is Skyre.

    Thanquol certainly represents a certain portion of skaven fans, and grey seer lord. Has had a prominent place in the novels.

    Would have to borrow his army which is loreful given Council Machinations.

    But, I do not want to see him leading Hellpit or Skavenblight. That's far cry from a loaner army and a diss to two main clans that truely make the skaven image.

    Skaven from the start should have been Ikkit, Skrolk, and Thrott as unquestioned lords for disease, monsterous rat creations, and warp machinations. The themes of skaven. The left overs get to rule the mass rats aspect~

    Not saying I prefer him to Thanquols inclusion. Just that in game right now he's the most fun to play.

    Good morning everyone!

    It seems that Ikit is still in the lead, though he has dropped a few percents. Interestingly, it seems that those from the americas seem to prefer Thanquol over Throt, while the Europeans did not have a clear preference.

    Keep voting!
  • JhoDeviloJhoDevilo Posts: 76Registered Users
    Let me say...**** Tretch, you **** piece of useless manure, **** slot stealer!

    Thanks.

    Now...i want Thanquol but only with Boneripper.
    But i prefer Skreech Verminking or Throt.

    Meanwhile the Empire is hard capped at 3.

    Every time someone mentions the Empire's cap of 3, or the Wood Elves cap of 2, I feel some sort of pain in my heart. Like the world is unfair and they deserve better. Is that normal?

    Anyway, I voted Ikit. We need some sort of representation of Skryre! Plus Ikit looks visually stunning. Thanquol can be some sort of promotion, like the White Dwarf of the Dwarfs. For if you ask me, the Skaven are the nr. 1 candidate for 5 LLs. They are supposed to be everywhere, sk having 5 LLs everywhere in the world, would represent that pretty well I guess.

    Ikit Claw!

    But my dream dlc is a Moulder army with Throt.
  • DraxynnicDraxynnic Posts: 4,928Registered Users
    Ikit, mostly due to the subjectivity of Skryre being my favourite clan and thus I'd like to do a Skryre playthrough at some stage. Thematically, he's about equal with the other two.
  • davedave1124davedave1124 Senior Member Posts: 3,014Registered Users
    It's got to be Ikit, you can't go wrong with a Cyberdyne systems rat.
  • tanspan88tanspan88 Posts: 201Registered Users
    Arghh so tough between ikit and throt. Both internationally recognised experts in their field of research, both upgrading themselves to the status of super-rat, both got great butts...

    I’d say Ikit overall as he’s have to bring his weappns teams with him, which are the most fun part of skaven gameplay-wise for me. I doubt they’d ever add the other beautiful moulder monters (brood horror and chimearat).

    Also CA had already given one of Throt's traits to Tretch, the prospering in a frozen climate trait.

    The weapons teams getting added is not all that contingent on which LL gets picked for the LP. Just look at past LPs, there's maybe 1 unit per lord which fits that lord's theme and the rest are just other missing units.
    Keep Grombrindal in KaK, K8P should be 10 slots, Dogs of War should be a horde, DoC should be one race- Change my mind

  • LudboneLudbone Posts: 1,055Registered Users
    Definitely.

    A LP should have units (also) outside the "LL-themed" context.
    Beastmen: where is the love?


  • LennoxPoodleLennoxPoodle Posts: 354Registered Users
    Oh man, that was hard. Skryre is my favorite and Ikkit really cool. He also fits the missing units well. But you can't leave out the main character of a race, so I settled with Thanquol, although I don't like him that much personally.
    In an ideal world, the Vanilla Lords would have been Queek an Thanquol with Ikkit claiming the FLC spot (although he could also be swapped with Thanquol). This would allow the thematically appropriate guy to take on Thanquol in the LP: Skrolk.
