Temple guards- full comnd, (16?)
Suarus warriors - full command ( 18?)
3x 12 skinks...?
Stegadon with the giant blowpipes
First game was the fastest game in Warhamer history, i went first did my manuevers, then he went and lord kermit levitate over his Temple guard (TG) unit and blasted my Hierophant with a spell that we had to roll off to see if it kept going and he casted with irresistible force...6 horribel rolls on my part later and my Hiero took 30+ hits on round one and died..called the game at that point...lol.
SECOND game went MUCH ..MUCH better.
Deployment Lizards: TG went between the 2 stegs, saurus warriors on the left flank, next to the blowpipe steg, terradons behind a forest on his side, unit of skinks in forest, unit of skinks on the left flank, razordons on the right flank, nother unit of skinks with the razordons.

Scorp and Scar vet say hi to each other and both fail misserably to do anything..scar vet does one wound.
End of the game- It was intense ! at the end i had My Uber king and one Scorpion, Mat had a small unit of skinks, terradons and the Scar-vet. My king was dragging the head of lord kermit II behind him along with the saurus standard and the battle standard and mat had 1 quarter. It was most prob a draw or a very remote vinor win for me, it was 11pm and we didnt count. This was one of the best games ive played in a LONG time, sooo much death !!! My army collected LOTs of Tomb Skinks !!! (local joke, once i forgot my TG and used skinks instead )"
