I wanna play a huuuge Stegadon army. I have 7.Its going to be against Dark Elves. 2500 pts. I have 150more points to throw around but i have no idea what i should bring... so check my army out and help me trample over some DE faces.
Sking Chief - General
Skink Priest - lvl 2
Diadem of Power
Skink Priest - lvl 2
x2 Dispel Scrolls
x3 Skinks - cheapest Core choices
shooting phase is pretty strong... magic defense is good (6 displel dice + 2 Diadem and 3 scrolls)... magic offense is okay... and combat = kill)... mobility = ehhh
The guy playing is an amazing general... he always is very strong in every phase... his record with DE is like 20-1 or something close. Im thinkning of a couple options with the extra 150
A- 2 stegs upgrade to Ancients.. and then 70 more points
B- some Terradons... also extra points
C- A skink chief on a steg with BSB
D- razordons on flanks
E- more sknks for redirecting and bait
these are some things im thinking about... but idk which... does anybody have any ideas? something different than what im thinking?.. or any mix of A-E? I need to beat him... help? -thanks

I would add the BSB to the current chief. Upgrade one stegadon to an ancient. Add a salamander with an extra handler. That would leave you with 5 points.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Stick a plaque of tepok on one of those engines? And upgrade at least one Stegadon to and Ancient. Looks like fun, though.
My advise would be to drop a steg, upgrade another one to an Ancient and add a BSB, and try to fit in some Terradons (they will be invaluable as enemy supporting unit killers, redirectors and runner downers).
okay cool, i like the ideas... so i dropped a steg, and made a skink chief riding one w/ a BSB (not a special choice! i love stegs as mounts!) and then added 3 Terradons... that would put me 20 points over... so i took out 1 of the 3 dispel scrolls.... sweeeet! im liking this alot...
Skink Chief- General
Skink Priest- LVL 2
Diadem of Power
Skink Priest- LVL 2
Skink Chief - BSB
Extra Hand Weapon
6 DD + 2 Diadem + 2 Dispel Scrolls now.. not breaking from CC is more reliable (LD 7's and maybe 6's with stubborn and rerollable!)... Terradons to pester him with... definately freaking awsome!... only problem i see is the skink character w/ the BSB, wanted something magical but no points... comes out to be 2499... comments?

My only small comment to this is the second hand weapon on the bsb chief. I know he is technically standing on the howdah, but he still counts as mounted (I mean, the steg spear/lance works only for mounted things) and mounted models cannot gain an extra attack from a second hand weapon. So best to ditch that for something else.
It looks like a scary list..
Personally I would ditch the extra magic levels on the skink priests for some more skinks on foot. You already have 2 EotG's for magic, and they can't be dispelled, so might as well just keep it simple and just use your skink priests for dispel dice with diadem of power.
Also I would give one of your skinks the enchanted item that gives him poison and allows reroll to hits with his already poisoned attacks, for such a cheap price it's so awesome.
Tell me how it goes, I'd like to see what an experienced dark elf player does against this list.
Most Notable Achievements:
Killed a Revenant Titan in one shot.
Killed 900 pts worth of Blood Angels in 2 turns while only loosing 4 pts.
See i dont wanna drop another EotG because without a Slann, thats basicly my only magic defense, plus with two EotGthe Portant of Warding can most of the time fit all stegs inside it giving all of them 5+ ward saves... and if i drop the levels of the skink then that would mean less dispel dice. Because a level 1 generates dispel dice as if they were lvl 2.. which is still only 1 dispel dice... but if they were lvl 2 it would generate 2 DD like a lvl 3.... plus i love EotG
I actually wanted Venom of the Firefly Frog on the BSB chief and put him with a blowpipe but thats 18 pts... im dropping the Extra Hand Weapon but that still makes me 13 or 14 pts too much... and i really have nothing... and i mean nothing that i can take out... maybe a Dispel Scroll but ive already killed 1 of those, those would be more critical anyways... but ya... i wish i could do that... im replacing the Exta Hand Weapon with a spear though...
Im gonna use the guys own doormat to wipe off DE blood from all my stegs feet! haha... ill tell yall how it goes!

okay, last night I played HE... the guy with DE backed out b/c of work... HE brought a star dragon, 20 white lions, lion chariot, 2x ellyrian reavers, 10 silver helms with BSB, 2x archers and 3x bolt throwers... MASSACRED HIM!
Siver Helms and Lion chariot fled off the board b/c of terror
white lions charged a EotG. EotG didnt take any damage but gave out alot. And then my general and another steg charged. just impact hits alone killed every last white lion!
The bolt throwers were taken out by Comet of Casandora and Terradons
stegs took out each archer unit
ellyrian reavers didnt do anything but move around... killed some but both units were still alive
The star dragon was the worst problem. It killed my BSB and his Stegadon and on the last turn killed my general and its Ancient... :/ but right after got charged by both EotG in both flanks and was completely squashed... really. killed the dragon and Prince.
oh yeah... one of the Priests was shot up and died... but no biggie... I killed everything but his ellyrian reavers... EotG worked amazingly!!! Stegadon War-Spear was frackin awsome!!! This is a really cheesy list but unstoppable... only threat was a Star Dragon.
I'm playing the DE soon... update you on that when i kill it. haha
