    Welcome back to 8th!

    Great 1000pt list, I think. At those levels, dealing with a Stegadon and 29 Suarus is not easy for anyone.

    I personally prefer heavens to Beasts for the skink but that might be personal preference (lower casting values too, I think).

    The biting blade might depend on who you are facing. If T3 army with LA , but if blade won’t do much. But otherwise, I like the list!

    No complaints. I think javelins and shields are slightly better than blowpipes against most opponents but I don't see a problem taking one of each. Blowpipe Skinks are better at taking down or at least softening up large single monsters.

    Welcome back! I hope my late response is better than nothing ;).

    Why take the Biting Blade in combination with a shield? You will not get parry as it is a magical weapon, making the shield a somewhat suspect purchase. Your I is low, often on Scarvets you either want to go full tank (with Dawnstone) or for damage, with a Great Weapon. I think that in this list the GW is the better option, it will be a nice deterrent to monsters in your large CC block. Also look for the Dragonhelm for armor, it is a lot cheaper than the Stegadon helmet. Something like GW, Gambler's Armor and Dragonhelm gives you 2+ 6++, and 4 S7 attacks. with 2++ vs flaming attacks. Rest of the list seems solid!
