Scaverous: Fever brain warning

I'm not sure I'll ever actually play this, but I thought it might be fun, and I've been looking for a way to use those Wraith Engines. The fever brain thought up this list, using the Bile Thralls and Bane Knights to fill up the Wraith Engines, so it's probably a bad idea :D

Lord Exhumator Scaverous
- Ripjaw
Skarlock Thrall
Bane Knights (Leader and 9 Grunts)
Bile Thralls (Leader and 5 Grunts)
The Withershadow Combine
Wraith Engine
Wraith Engine
Bane Lord Tartarus
Darragh Wrathe
Madelyn Corbeau

Completely dependent on souls, but sending in a fully loaded incorporeal Wraith Engine (or two) with 16" range (not including a TK on the target) might be fun. Apparition (2), Telekinesis (2), and Death Ride (1), means it should easily be in range to collect some souls from the Bile Purges in turn two. If only the Wraith Engine wasn't so huge, I could see it working well with Scaverous.


  1. I am not sold on running only 1 node with Scavy @ 50 pts. Let us know how it went when you tested this list. I would swap Maddy for Gorman though.

  2. Madelyn is a killer model, and often helps me more than Gorman, though the two of them together is fun. Gorman + Madelyn + Dougal + Telekinesis = 19" range Black Oil with +2 RAT and re-roll to scatter :D

    The single Arc Node is probably a bad idea, as you say, but twin Wraith Engines are expensive :D
