Hey guys, I was wondering what your opinions on giving saurus units a scar-vet. Normally I run a Slann and two scar vets, but I want to run a old blood carny list, so I need to take a skink priest and I am running out of points when I include them as well. Is it needed for our saurus to be effective? I would like a bsb, should I throw him in just one of the units? or throw him on a cold one and float him. What is everyones opinion on a skink bsb on a terradon? too easy to kill? I know that wood elves have success with a similar set up.
I used to run a scar vet bsb in a unit of saurus with great effect for some time. I think I gave him the sword of the hornet
Depending on the gear you give him and the opponents you are fighting he can greatly enhance the unit of saurus he is in.
Say for instance you are going up against some heavy cavalry or Chaos Warriors and you have a great weapon or something on the scar-vet. It would help your kill ratio out alot by reducing those heavy armor saves to nothing.
However when your saurus unit is ranked up against normal infantry/skirmishers/fast cavalry, its really not necessary to have a scar-vet in the unit since our infantry is already one of the best out there (only behind Chaos Warriors IMO and our infantry is cheaper)
So in the end its up to you and what armies you face the most. Fighting WoC or Brets alot? A Scar-vet with a halberd or great weapon can do wonders in your blocks of saurus. Fighting armies without alot of super heavy infantry or cavalry, then the points can be spent as effectively elsewhere.

I'm... a little new to the game so my opinion is probably not all that good, but I tend to always run a Scar-Vet with Enchanted Shield and Sword of the hornet (as well as some armor) in front of a unit of Saurus.
