A Slann without the 2+ ward save will go down fast...

Not only will cannons and bolt throwers really destroy the guy but so will S3 BOWS!!! and the like...

When your opponent has the choice of either shooting skinks (skirmishers...often at long range) and hitting on 6s or hitting the Slann on a 4+ you can guess where those arrows are going to go... I tried without the armour for a while, I almost had my slann taken out but S3 bows...

If your not taking the armour then I would take the power familiar on it to allow for more spells to be cast but I woudl go for the armour myself.

Slann can use any lore... or every lore... any number of spells from 1 and the rest from others. That is what makes it such a flexible caster. If you want a certain spell you will most likely get it with you 5 tries but you can also take 1 from each lore if you so wish.

skink priests can be put in skirmishers if thats what you were asking. i have no use for terradons, so i dont know which is more effective. instead i use chameleon skinks or salamanders. for the points of the teradons you can have two salamanders and 5 chameleon skinks, i think (210-130=80, then 80-75=5)

i usually dont bring a brave with my skinks, because all it adds is a shot at higher BS, which wont matter much with Javs because you'll usually be hitting on 4s anyway when in range. The other disadvantage is if you get into close combat, you can get challenged and will most likely lose if you accept (and possibly get overkilled), though declining doesnt make too much of a difference. IMHO though, braves for skinks arent worth it. I also agree with bramebleten on the terradons, your better off taking chameleon skinks or salamanders for that job.

if you only dropped the swarms and the brave and a skink (making the skinks 10 strong)
they you have the points for 2 salamanders. i would drop the champion on the saurus units and put in 4 more normal skinks to bolster the units, if only to increase teh unit size. you never know, poison shots usually find their mark eventually

Thx for the advice guys. I actually liked the idea of chameleons or salamanders than terradons but i though terradons were supposed to be a staple, so im glad i can take something else. So ill edit this to drop jungle swarms, add in some salamanders and get me slann some protection (scary though of it dieing so fast :cries:)

Thanks a bunch!

most people take terradons to take down artillery, but if you have shouts and enough magic missiles, the war machines come down easily enough

1998 points

Gave my slann some protections, gave the blowpipes scout just to vary my positions on different armies and some early hits, other skinks to help the priest as he has telepathy on him or just dispell caddy, I kept a unit of Terradons to help against warmachines(thought hit and run might be useful in alot of situations), and Finally i picked up some hunting packs to get a warmachine effect.

Any more feedback appreciated!

I would drop a Champion on one of the Saurus (only use the Champion for challenges that choose your Slann)...

Maybe try and find some points for the Sun Standard for the Slann?
