If you take a look here



you'll notice that the ROR are the abomination, rat ogres and mutant rat ogre. A cool list of RoR in my idea! Very thematic for our thicc boy the rat men

Its not all doom and gloom.

    No look at the picture wallpaper. Notice the top left. Its the RoR Ogres and Abomination. In addition, in the middle we see two extra units (wolf rats and mutant rat ogre). We know the rat wolves have two variants. Thus the mutant is the RoR

    Remembering the presentation stream, about this DLC I’m worried about the introduction of Wolfrats and the possibility to spam behind your line...
    The most annoying thing imaginable ahaha

    The steam page was updated with the unit types for the RoR. Skaven have rat ogres, mutated rat ogre, and hell pit. WE have Great Stag Knights, Dryads, and Zoats.

    We'll see :)

    Personally i'm looking forward to some skaven footage too (though i've played them....2 campaigns only).
    The fleshlab looks like fun and i kinda want to make a suicidal army of exploding rats lol.

    For Skaven, Berserk/Terror-immune Rat Ogres will be a staple in MP for sure. For WEs I thought ethereal Stag Knights would be slightly busted until I remembered everyone brings magic/fire damage against them anyway.

    In MP I suspect the real terror of Wolf Rats won't be their vanguard deployment, but the fact that Throt and the Packmasters can summon them into your back lines at any time.

    There are gonna be some nasty combo summoning builds with those guys and Plague Priests.

    Nah all it takes is a cap on summonable abilities. In tournies, I believe it is max 2. So for BM u cant summon manticores, cygors, and chaos spawns. So it wont be an issue. CA should do likewise in QBs. But it will certainly make Skaven better thats for sure. Before they had just monks and clanrats. Now they can add a third summonable unit that is worth bringing.

    Fire damage gives you nothing against the stag knights. Not that everyone has magic damage in large amounts. They seem to be intended to help both the dwarf and bret matchup, but we'll see how that goes.
