I'd take a cube of darkness on one of the priests with that thing that gives them a re-roll so you can re-roll the 4+. As a tomb kings player, I generally run over lizard men but cube really throws a kink in my magic phase.

I don't really know if you want me to comment on your list or suggest what to get next? (as that is the headline)

But I'll try answering both and that is more special choices, you don't seem to have much of those compared to your core and characters. You have a a lot of saurus, but not enough of heavy hitters like kroxigores.

So maybe a unit of terradons (as that way you'll pretty much have everything the army has to offer), and another unit of kroxigors (maybe make the 4 strong). That is all I can think of. This way you'll also have alot more flexibility when making smaller lists (2k battles etc.)

:D

Yes go for 4 kroxigors, at 4000 pts most units are either big enough or well supported enough to take the charge from 3, also lose the ancient against certain opponents, the extra attack is nice, but you don't really want one unit champion sucking up 4 strength 7 attacks.

I dont have the book on me so i cant give any advice on precise configs but I wouldn't go so magic defensively, you have 3 lvl 2's and a 2nd generation slann!!! Take the item which gives you 1 PD and 1 DD. Check out other items that make you more aggressive in your magic phase. Having taken a 2nd gen slann, you might as well make the most out of your magic phase by using your magic aggressively!

Also, I would give the aura of quetzl to your lord on the carnosaurus.

Too many solid blocks for my liking. The tend to underperform most of the time. Take 3 bases of jungle swarms, I do, they rule!

take 4 kroxigors! 3 is a risk, id rather use none than 3. 4 is the magic number for kroxs. I would drop the chamo skinks, free up points elsewhere and take a unit of 4/5 terradons, they offer way more tactical flexibility! Maybe you can free up points by dropping saurus cav. Make one unit of 6 (no ranks, just one file of 6, thus maximising number of attacks.)

if you can spare any points, take more salamanders, they are awesome if played well!!!


Good luck!

cheers, i will be looking into more kroxigor and some terradons
ill get rid of some dispell scrolls and take the cube of darkness.
i take the 3 blocks of saurus because most of the people i play at my club use some form of heavy shooting, which skinks cant handle
i only have the ancient in to make up the points.
i will drop the saurus cavalry and put in another swarm. i will also drop the scouting on the 17 skinks to free up more points. if anyone thinks i shouldnt do this i will take them down to 10 so i can fit them into terrain easier.

I agree with the cube switch.

I take 3 blocks of 25 at 3000, so I in now way agree with the other. Saurus are extremely powerful and if used right, can tear the enemy apart. They have to be supported by fast units though, so make sure you have the saurus cav there to either bait charges or redirect charges.

The skinks seems to be too large, especially the scouts. Bring them to ten and you'll be fine.

I agree with the krox. Four is much better than three.

For the slann I'd drop the banner and if you are really worried about shooting, upgrade to a 2+ ward instead.

so basically 25 saurus per 1k pts?
