    Hi all,

    Next week I’m going up against a stormcast army. I’m reasonably new to the hobby and could use a few pointers for putting lists together as I don’t always have the best luck doing it!

    Here’s a list of all the figures I have;

    Lord kroak
    Slann starmaster
    Saurus old blood on carnasaur
    Saurus old blood on foot
    Engine of the gods
    Bastiladon (I have both options for this but only one Dino)
    X2 Skink star priest
    Skink priest
    Saurus eternity warden
    X20 Saurus guard
    X30 Saurus warriors w/spears
    X20 Saurus warriors w/clubs
    X8 Saurus knights
    X24 Skinks
    X5 chameleon skinks
    Free guild battle mage (its a d&d wizard but i figured I could use him for that, so longs as I’m not playing in GW!)
    Balewind vortex


    Before I started playing, I just got carried away and bought a tonne of models to paint and now I find it overwhelming to put an army together having too much to choose from! Help!

    What I would do is hide your slann and use him to summon in units, so big blob of warriors and 5 knights to use as your battleline, basilidon because it's easier to summon in cheap units and just summon in as much as possible as early as possible, place the slann as far away from the enemy as possible and in cover.

    Summon in and use Lords of Space and Time to move your units around, play the objective.

    Turn 1 you will have 10 summon points, bring in 10 skinks
    Turn 2 you will have 10+4 points, bring in 10 warriors or a priest (depending on whats happening)
    Turn 3 you will have 10+2 points, bring in another 10 warriors or 2*10 skinks (if they have been killed)

    This is all depending on keeping your slann able to gain points for 3 turns.


    Allegiance: Seraphon

    Leaders
    Slann Starmaster (260)
    - General
    - Trait: Great Rememberer
    - Artefact: Incandescent Rectrices

    Battleline
    40 x Saurus Warriors (360)
    - Spears
    5 x Saurus Knights (90)
    - Blades

    Behemoths
    Bastiladon (280)

    Total: 990 / 1000
    Extra Command Points: 0
    Allies: 0 / 200
    Wounds: 65

    Cool!

    How do people generally deploy the warriors? Units of 20?

    The bigger the better for Saurus Warriors.
    40 models is awesome, and 10 is chaff or tax. 20 and 30 is usually bad.

    So here’s my list for this weeks game:

    Slann Starmaster - general
    Eternity warden
    2x 5 Saurus Guard
    20 saurus warriors w/ spears
    20 skinks w/ blowpipes

    Plan on using the slann to generate as many summoning points as possible and getting the engine on the field in turn 2.

    How’s that sound?

    Can work. 30 Saurus is not ideal but OK.

    If you suffer a single wound with that unit you instantly lose the best bonus they have.
    30 or more Saurus in a unit means that they get an additional attack per model, so you have 60 attacks with the spears or clubs when you have 30 models, and that number drops to 29 if you lose one Saurus Warrior.
    That's why most people run 40, as that allows you to lose 10 models before you lose the bonus.

    So basically it is 10 or 40 for Saurus Warriors. 10 if you just need them for a bataillon or for the battleline tax or as chaff, and 40 if you want them to really be effective in fighting.
