    As the titel says...I am going to play my Seraphon for the first time in 1 week. The units below is what i have built and painted...can it work for a 1k point game? Would love some suggestions

    1x Slann
    1x astropath banner man...lizard..
    1x EotG
    40x skinks
    1x Bastiladon
    7x guard (got 15 in Total..rest on sprue)

    ...I got like 40 Saurus warriors and like 15 Saurus knights on sprue that can be included..

    I could proxy 1 knight or some Saurus warriors to represent any Leader just for this game..


    So...what would you do if you were in my shoes?

    Thanks in advance!

    Take everything that is painted....?

    // Reads closer //

    Slann, Bastilodon, Engine otG, and Astrolith Bearer are the auto-includes.

    Those plus three minimal Skink units are 1100 points according to Warscroll Builder. If it was me I’d ask the opponent to bump it up to an 1100 point game.

    Given not enough points:

    Allegiance: Order

    Leaders
    Saurus Astrolith Bearer (160)
    Slann Starmaster (260)

    Battleline

    Units
    20 x Skinks (120)
    - Meteoric Javelins & Star Bucklers
    10 x Skinks (60)
    - Meteoric Javelins & Star Bucklers
    10 x Skinks (60)
    - Meteoric Javelins & Star Bucklers

    Behemoths
    Bastiladon (280)

    Endless Spells
    Aethervoid Pendulum (40)
    Malevolent Maelstrom (20)

    Total: 1000 / 2000
    Extra Command Points: 20
    Allies: 0 / 400
    Wounds: 61

    I threw the spells in to make up the points when I deleted the EotG. But those could be ditched for another 10 Skinks.

    @pendrake suggestion is valid, but I could have another weird idea. Follow me.

    Slann 260
    Astrolith 160
    EotG 220
    10 x knights 180
    30 x skinks

    the knights and the skink will serve as main force at the beginning.
    use the EotG for mortal wounds or summon other small units (saurus, skinks) to run for objectives
    The Slann will just collect summoning points.

    On average, (10+d3) in the 2nd turn you should be able to summon your precious Bastiladon.

    At that point, Basti and knights should control the middle battlefield, locking in combat the main force of the enemy. Support them with mortal wounds / healing by the EotG and summon cheap bodies each turn to swarm the battlefield and go for objectives.

    That ^ sounds like a ^ Plan.

    @Killer Angel ...does that list break the 1K points cap? (with all the summoning) Do the troops to be summoned have to be included in the 1K ..?.. or am I remembering rules that went away when AS1 was abolished?

    @Kimbo is this game part of an organized event or just a casual game?

    1k is the limit on your starting army, summoning has no point cost on your rota, units in hiding etc are part of your rota (chamo skinks etc)

    Allegiance: Seraphon
    Mortal Realm: Ghur

    Leaders
    Slann Starmaster (260)
    - General
    - Trait: Great Rememberer
    - Artefact: Gryph-feather Charm

    Engine of the Gods (220)
    Saurus Astrolith Bearer (160)

    Battleline
    10 x Saurus Knights (180)
    - Lances
    30 x Skinks (180)
    - Boltspitters & Star Bucklers

    Total: 1000 / 1000
    Extra Command Points: 0
    Allies: 0 / 200
    Wounds: 73

    Yeah.
    A Basti at 2nd turn will have an immediate impact upon the game, tnx to shooting. And the double teleport should really give you an edge to control objectives... a harder thing to do at higher points games, where there are more units on the battlefield, but really effective with such few points.
