[Poll] which skaven lord do you prefer?

MagicspookMagicspook Posts: 137Registered Users
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.

    The Tony Stark of the rat world for sure.

    Hey now, Tretch is great. Quintessential Skaven. We'll probably see all of them eventually anyway.
  • Michael4537Michael4537 Posts: 2,050Registered Users
    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.

    Glad to see so few folk are wrong.
    Game 3 must have variety in its core races. Ogres, Chaos Dwarfs, Kislev, and Demons of Chaos in its full iconic, glorious, undivided glory.

    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.
    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?

    Ikit. Crazy tech! But it is close.

    Read all my replies as if we are having a pint and a good old time. I will always read your reply like that.

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

    You mean "then the limit is how many named characters they had in every book and side story of the warhammer franchise"

    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 :)
  • TimpeyoTimpeyo Posts: 764Registered Users
    I do love the other two but throt gets my vote, three armed mad scientist rat who lives in the worst place possible hell pit

  • TayvarTayvar Posts: 10,279Registered Users
    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?

    Where is Skreech?
  • TheGuardianOfMetalTheGuardianOfMetal Senior Member Posts: 9,137Registered Users

    Where is Skreech?

    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.
