    Hello scaly brethren!

    I'm heading to my first 2-dayer tomorrow (Octocon in NJ, if anyone is going) and i'm struggling on deciding the last ~240 points in my Fangs of Sotek list. I've run this list all year and in general I just find the Scar Vet on Carno to not really pull it's weight.

    My games are always games of attrition, can you kill 90 saurus and another 60+ skinks over the course of the game, and the little bit of extra damage i get from the Scar Vet just doesn't seem to really go that far.

    I'm considering replacing it with an EoTG or a Astrolith Bearer + something (maybe palisades, maybe more skinks) to just lean more into the whole battle of attrition philosophy.

    Any thoughts? My current list is below.

    Slann
    Old Blood on Carno w/ doppleganger
    Sunblood w/ coronal shield
    Skink Starpriest
    Scar Vet on Carno w/ d6 mortal wound weapon

    40 Saurus
    40 Saurus
    10 saurus
    10 skinks

    Vortex

    Sunclaw
    Fangs

    i think an Astrolith and Cogs would make a great replacement.

    I love this idea, I think that's exactly what i'll do! Thank you. Gives a little bit of extra power with the hit rerolls, and adds more summoning power as well.

    I would go for an EotG to keep nearby the Slann. Some additional MW is nice and the engine's summon can really help you in war of attrition

    That's what I was originally thinking as well. I kind of like having the hit reroll from the astrolith bearer tho, i was a little concerned that losing the scar vet would completely kill any killing power my list had and i think the astrolith bearer helps that a little bit.

    Just remember that the unit must be wholly within the AB range to have the rerolls ;)

    AB also makes it easier to cast both cogs and BwV. So he is a summoning increase in multiple respects.

    @Putzfrau How did it go, and what did you end up filling the last 240 with?

    Okay, this time i'm ready to roll. I fought off Nurgle and nothing can stop me now!

    I'm taking the list to Da Boyz GT this upcoming weekend and will try to pull together some kind of battle report/post tournament run down of how the list does.

    I'm expecting a 2-3 at best, but we will see!

    About to start my last game!

    So far ive played:

    DoK
    Monster FEC
    Shooty Cities
    Syllesseke host

    Edit: final game was against shootcast with 9 longstrike, 10 evos and some hunters or something.

    Ended up 3 and 2 with my two losses against dok and slaanesh. DoK game was super close, scorched earth, i engaged too much early and i got 3 points on my burn. he got 8, ended up winning 22 to 15.

    Slaanesh tabled me by turn 4 and ended with more keepers than he started with! It was starstrike and 2 of the 3 points dropped basically inside his army so it was going to be an uphill battle but i made a few costly mistakes. I had my screen too far forward which let them get a bunch of extra movement out of a long charge and didn't have my doppleganger carno in a good spot to counter assault. Got rolled pretty hard, but was still a great learning experience :)

    Overall was an absolute blast. Super happy with the list, felt like i made some definite missplays but it held up better than expected even against some really nasty lists.
