You want to drop the maiming shield or the great weapon. You cant use both at the same time. I know theres a rule that says if you use a magical weapon you have to use the magical weapon, not sure if that applies to shields as well.

Thanks for the correction.
I'll go with a great weapon, I'll edit my list.
Any other thoughts?

Thanks, Bowen

Other than the shield thing it looks solid.

you might need more saurus.*shrug* i dunno, i guess its up to youre playing style.

Yeah, I was thinking about that, but I wouldn't know where to get the points...
If it were a 1500 points list, I'd field two blocks of 20 Saurus Warriors for sure, but this list is only for 1250 points.

take the mark of tepok instead of sotek. 1 more dispell dice every turn is generally more useful than 1 extra attack on the charge.
i would drop the saurus to 18, and add 2 extra skinks to each unit. the more poison shots, the better. i would also make one of them blowpipes.
i usually try to fit in a unit of chameleon skinks, but i cant see where to put them in yor list. good work with the salamanders. any more than 1500pts requires 3, but at 1250, 2 should do fine

[edit] put the saurus in 3 ranks of 6, as with 25mm bases, 6 is the most you can possibly get to fight.

Thanks for the tips :)
I don't think I'll be cutting down on the Saurus, just from my personal experience I prefer 4 ranks in stead of 3.
I'll swap the Scar-Vet's spawning though.
