    Looks good, I would go Razors too as they don't need handlers and can do serious damage.

    I would change the Command Trait to: Master of Star Rituals. And definitely take the Razordons.

    I have fielded an identical 1k Shadowstrike list at 3 small ITC events this year and gone 14-1 so far. The last event some of the players knew I would be there and specifically built list to counter Shadowstrike. At 1k there is almost nothing that can deal with it.

    Yeah, razors have the enormous advantage that you can teleport them and, even with a 3-4, they will be able to shoot the intended target.

    How would reducing the skinks to fit in more razordons work? Might be tough to hold objectives.
    I have 4 razors so far. Kitbashing more from Knights and extra razor heads (for my 2k lists).

    Sorry for the maybe stupid question, but how could you teleport the Razors without a Slann using Lords of Space and Time? Can you use that Battle Trait even if there are no Slann on the board?

    Our allegiance ability: Lords of Space and Time, does not require a Slann to be present. The fluff text mentions Slann, but the rules do not state that one is needed in the army. Presumably, they are off in the Spaceship doing it from a distance.

    Nice, thanks. Probably playing Retro Snake on a second monitor too!
