Your characters are kinda screwy. The focused rumination and becalming cognition are the two best slann diciplines. You took neither. I would recommend to anyone that you should take these two before you take any other disciplines. Also, save stuff like the diadem of power and dispel scrolls for your skink priests. The divine plaque of protection is OK. Your slann has 5 wounds a 4+ ward save and he's in a unit of temple guard, though, so he's going to be tough to take out with shooting whether you take it or not. Cupped hands of the old ones is awesome. It's always my first magic item choice for a slann. Power stones are good. You might as well make him a BSB and give him either Sun standard of Chotek, a war banner or maybe that standard that makes enemy wizards stupid.

As far as I'm concerned priests aren't much more than scroll caddys. I usually take Plaque of Tepok and a dispel scroll on one and Diadem of Power and a dispel scroll on the other. The scar vet looks good.

A skink priest in a unit of saurus? I dunno if I'd do that. I guess there's nowhere else to put it, though. 18 temple guard seems like an odd number. The slann takes up 4 slots in the unit so I usually just run 16 of them 5x4 or 20 of them 5x5.

Full command on... more or less everything?

Personally i've found champions at the very least to be ineffective for the amount of points they cost. Especially on Cold ones, they cost a lot as it is.

That's a lot of skinks in one unit. I'd say split them into 2 units of 10 - that way they can contest table quarters, and you don't feel as bad if you sacrifice the poor buggers.


I'd agre with Artyboy on the Slann - plaque of protection in TG is a bit of a waste, as is Transcendent Healing and Higher State of Consciousness. Swap them for Focused Rumination (which should be an automatic choice on any slann) and Becalming Cogitation. He DEFINITELY does not need Diadem of Power, stick in on a skink priest.
My favourite combo is: Slann with Beclaming Cogitation, Focus of Mystery, Focused Rumination, Bane Head, Cupped Hands of the Old Ones, BSB, war banner. Maybe add on 2 power stones if I feel ike it.

Talisman of Protection on a skank priest seems a bit weird. As you already have a stegadon, why not try to find an extra 55pts to put him on an EotG. Perhaps take off a terradon - i'd say 4 is optimal size for them.

Drop unfathomable prescence and maybe get a skink unit with the points.
Drop Talisman of protection on the skink priest. You'll need to be very lucky to save with it.
Give the dispel scrolls to the Slann which is much safer. and give Plaque to your EOTG. Much better on him.

I would just keep blowpipes for the skirmishers. Against large targets you'll be glad you did with all those extra shots.;)

Drop terradons to 3 and get a salamander.
