    I think your 10 warriors and 3 Krox are a waste you could invest those 260 points into more skinks or guards. (if you have the models)

    The Kroxigor may actually work against some armies (they are great against hordes) but about the 10 Warriors I agree those are not very useful.
    For Warriors it is "go big or go home" IMO.

    For an "Eternal Shadow" list I would probably try this or something similar:


    Allegiance: Seraphon

    Leaders
    Saurus Eternity Warden (140)
    - Artefact: Blade of Realities
    Slann Starmaster (260)
    - General
    - Trait: Great Rememberer
    Skink Priest (80)
    - Priestly Trappings
    - Artefact: Prism of Amyntok
    Skink Starpriest (80)
    - Artefact: Coronal Shield

    Battleline
    10 x Saurus Guard (200)
    - Seraphon Battleline
    5 x Saurus Guard (100)
    - Seraphon Battleline
    5 x Saurus Guard (100)
    - Seraphon Battleline
    40 x Skinks (200)
    - Boltspitters & Star Bucklers
    10 x Skinks (60)
    - Boltspitters & Star Bucklers

    Units
    3 x Razordons (120)
    3 x Skink Handlers (40)
    6 x Terradon Riders (240)
    - Starstrike Javelins or Bolas

    Battalions
    Eternal Starhost (130)
    Shadowstrike Starhost (170)

    Reinforcement Points (80)

    Total: 2000 / 2000
    Allies: 0 / 400
    Wounds: 122


    The Reinforcement Points are to summon a priest or Starpriest or two Razordons or a unit of Skinks depending on your needs.

    I would strongly recommend to take out the 10 warriors. You already have battleline completed and they won't be that useful. Make the x20 skinks into a 40 instead !

    Would you change something?

    Maybe just stick to 1 10x guard and save those 100p for summon?

    Im seeing a pattern were everyone want to go 10x5x5x with guard...why?

    Well, it is a tradeoff.
    Putting too few points in guards risks getting a whole unit destroyed very quickly with mortal wounds.
    You can play even 5+5+5 against some armies but it is risky.
    Too big groups makes you inflexible and since guards are very expensive per wound it gets risky as well.

    One bigger group is the middle ground between those extremes. Threatening enough so your enemy can't ignore that big group. Still not too expensive.

    You can still use the first one. Just take out the krox and the warriors. You'll have 260 pts for reinforcements.

    You can also, with the above, replace the skinks in the shadowstrike with more chamo skinks, and summon the skinks if you need some help
