Ok, so I just picked up the new book and wrote up a 2k point list. I usually end up playing shooty armies heavy on war machines (dwarves or empire). I haven't had a chance to field this yet and I am looking for any tips about the list.
-Oldblood w/ Carny mount, LA, Carny Pendant, Piranha Blade, Enchanted Shield, Glyph Necklace
-Skink Priest w/ 2 Scrolls
-Skink Chief w/ LA, shield, Dagger of Sotek, Cloak of Feathers
-24 Skinks w/ standard, musician, 3 Krox
-2x 12 Skink Skirmishers
-6 CoC w/ champion, Sun Standard of Chotek
1978 pts total
I plan on placing the OB on Carny with the CoC, and the Skink Chief in the mixed block of skinks/krox. Most of the shooty armies I play just stand and shoot the whole game, so I made the army fast to try to minimize shooting casualties. The Chief is intended to get a surprise charge on a cannon or other war machine, since they are often on hills. The swarms are in to guard a flank, and the can keep up with the rest of the army. The terradons are intended to get behind the enemies main force and harass the war machines as well. I am not sure if the sallies are a good choice or not. I am also not sure what to do with the extra 20 points.
First off, this list is really different from anything I would play that it is hard to give you any advice on it.
One thing is that the oldblood doesn't need the carno pendant, as he will become frenzied as soon as the carno is. I would split the sallies into two units, so they can hit different targets. Not really a fan of the chief with the cloak. Since you have a unit of terradons, I would give him one also, and use the magic points for something else.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Giving the skink chief a terradon so he can join the others is a good idea, but I was under the impression that only the terradon special character could join a unit of terradons, since it says in the WH rulebook that no characters can join flyers. Is this true? As for the sallies, if I split them into two units, I might want to add another to make it two units of two, but I would have to drop something. I'll look at what I can play around with to do that. Thanks for the tips .
Also, the Skink Priest could take an EotG for the 5+ save.
Oh cool! I over looked that fun little bit of info. Thanks for the help!
Also Jormi, I might just swap out the Kroxigors in the mixed unit (Kroxigors have been getting too many bad reviews) for an EotG for the skink priest.
I appreciate the tips guys!
