= 160pts

TOTAL POINTS = 2000pts

The idea would be to deploy the large skink unit supported by a stegadon and some salamanders on each side. The skrimishers/chameleons/terradons will harrass and cause havoc.

I put as much protective gear as possible on the chiefs however they are still a bit squishy. I thought about taking the large unit and making 2 smaller units of 24 with 2 kroxs, but I think the larger unit works a bit better.

I'd mount one of those chiefs on the Stegadon with that magical lance they have that ups your impact hits.

I think, in such awsome themed armies, you need special charcetres. Tik'tak'to, Chameleon skink guy, and i would also recomend Mazdamundi (although he's not quite a skink, he aint a saurus :p. he is also on a steg)

I also think, although skinmishers have fallen from grace, skinks ranked up are rubbish. especially only with one horde. And, with kroxigor, tehre too expensive. I woudl jsyt go with 500pts of skirmishers (in units of 10-15). 5 Units of 15 should fit.

I am also very dissapointed with the severe lack of EotG :cries:

If I do this or take a priest on Engine of the Gods it really punishes my hero points. I then would only be able to squeeze 1 more skink hero into the list.

I could take

- SKink Priest on Engine
- Skink BSB

or

- Skink Chief on steg
- Skink BSB

Mate, thats all you need. Without a slaan, suggest engine. But maybe a slaan on carpet with some defensive gear, the spear steg could do well.
