[Poll] which skaven lord do you prefer?

MagicspookMagicspook Registered Users Posts: 509
So now that suddenly, we realise that ikit vs tehen is much less certain than we thought before (a different thread has been started where it is discussed why they might not be the LP lords), I thought it would be neat to see which lord you prefer!

Options are:
-space marine rat
-rat riding rat
-filthy mutant rat

I've not included ninja rat because that'd be ridiculous.

Please vote here:

And post your motivations below!

    He is not a bloody SP, Ikit is a clear cut Haemonculus. And I have voted for him. Rat riding rat should be FLC. Why not the other way around? Because.

    Ideally, we should have gotten all three and Tretch should stayed in the garbage bin he came from.

    Hey now, Tretch is great. Quintessential Skaven. We'll probably see all of them eventually anyway.
  • Michael4537Michael4537 Registered Users Posts: 2,376
    I honestly like and want all of them. To me, it makes little difference on who is added in the LP and who is added as FLC down the line.

    I doubt it. 4 seems to be the max for any race, with Vampires being a very lucky exception and we only got Isabella because she fit the theme of a promotion (which TWW isn't even participating in this year). If Skaven do indeed become the anointed ones of this installment and get more than 4 lords, I would only expect it to be by 1, so at least one of those three is getting left out in the cold. Maybe all three get left out if CA rounds out the Skaven with Snikch in the LP and calls it a day. Tretch was a poor choice in my opinion, considering the alternatives.

    Errr, we already have Queek. Which rat is he?

    I'd kinda like the rat with the giant totally-not-a-thermonuclearbomb, too, though.

    Thanquol of course. THE Skaven Character.

    The Empire still hasn't gotten their FLC LL. We need Marius Leitdorf of Averland!

    Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him? For a Middenland DLC with Boris and the Ar-Ulric!

    Queek could smell their hatred, ratcheted to a degree that even he could not evoke in their simple hearts. He stepped over the old orange-fur’s body, eager to see for himself what it was they saw. But he heard it first.

    Ikit. Crazy tech! But it is close.

    It needs to be pointed out that what people call "cheese" is just playing the game the way it actually exists not in some fictional way they think it is supposed to work.

    4 max. Unless it is undead race then the limit is 79.

    *points at Aranessar Saltspite*... considering they are getting even Characters that are not undead... nor necromancers...

    Thanks you everyone for voting! Ikit seems to be the clear fan favourite with 70+% of the votes right from the start. Thanquol only barely has more votes than Throt.

    Please remember to stick to the topic everyone! There is a time and place for everything, and vampires are a topic for another day :)

    CA was likely already decided, and Ikit Claw clearly have a much more unique look than Thanquol.

    There are much more living characters than undead characters in this game, so what it your point?

    Considering that Skreech Verminking is a Greater daemon of hte horned Rat and we have no Greater Daemons as normal Legendary Lords... Azrik is Level 3 Tzeentch reward and Sathorael is a custom battle goodie..

    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.
