    Hi Guys,

    I've some old warhammer miniatures I owend. I used to play bretonnia when I was little, like 17 years ago.

    Recently I duggup my old miniatures and also found same old and new lizardman miniatures I bought to play againts. I'd like to start an army with it, since they are playable in AoS.

    Here is what I have:

    1x Slann
    1x skink priest
    1x Scarvet on Carnosaur

    20x Saurus warriors with spears
    5x Saurus Knights
    15x Saurus Guards
    3x Kroxigor
    1x Salamander
    1x Skin handlers

    And some 32 old skinks with bows.
    10 I want to conver to camou skinks and have 20 boltspitters.

    Could you help me with making a nice 1000 and 1500 army list with this?

    I was thinking of atleast adding an Eternity warden.

    And with christmas coming up, if I would want to buy something to add to this army, what should it be? I've seen alot of people having a bastiladon on their army list, and they look awesome.

    Please help me out!

    Welcome!
    Lets see....

    An Eternity Warden would be a good choice to use your Guards with.

    For Skinks and Saurus Warriors it is important to have lots of them so it might be a good idea to get a Skink or Saurus box as well.

    With a tiny bit of converting and/or proxying you have a few options already. I recommend checking out this thread to see what you could get out of a Starter box to fill a few holes in your army:

    I also notice that you don't have many of our cool big dinosaurs. Probably because those were very expensive back in the days?
    Big dinosaurs and/or flyers are a great addition to any Seraphon army

    As for the lists: check out the warscroll builder on the Warhammer community site.

    Just pick your army and play around with it a bit.
    You lack a bit of everything in your army unfortunately, so it probably won't be a very competitive list, but enough for a few simple games I guess. One example:



    Allegiance: Seraphon

    Leaders
    Saurus Eternity Warden (140)
    - Artefact: Coronal Shield
    Skink Starpriest (80)
    Slann Starmaster (260)
    - General
    - Trait: Vast Intellect
    - Artefact: Incandescent Rectrices
    Skink Priest (80)
    - Priestly Trappings

    Battleline
    5 x Saurus Guard (100)
    - Seraphon Battleline
    5 x Saurus Guard (100)
    - Seraphon Battleline
    5 x Saurus Guard (100)
    - Seraphon Battleline

    Battalions
    Eternal Starhost (130)

    Reinforcement Points (0)

    Total: 990 / 1000
    Allies: 0 / 200

    Use a Saurus for the Warden and some Skink for the Starpriest and you are good to go.

    Thanks for the list tip! I like the synergy by the Eternal starhost. Although only 3 units of 5 feels a bit fragile (correct me if im wrong :p) and a bit slow in terms of movement. Maybe I'm missing something here.

    What if I would take this list and expand it to 1500, what should I preferably add?

    I love the many extra build you can get from the SC box. Although it feels like one box doenst add that much, since I already have a Carnosaur and the other added units are just 8 knights and 10 warriors. Or would you advice this?

    In terms of making an competative list, would you suggest a star collectingbox or maybe a bastildon+other unit. Since they almost cost the same.

    Much thanks again!

    I've been playing with the warscrollbuilder all day. Thanks for the great tip! I think I'm almost there!

    I've done some questioning around and it seems that most tournaments will be at 1500 points. So thats where I want to go with this build!

    I've now come to this:

    Leaders
    Saurus Eternity Warden (140)
    - Artefact: Coronal Shield
    Slann Starmaster (260)
    - General
    - Trait: Vast Intellect
    - Artefact: Incandescent Rectrices
    Skink Priest (80)
    - Priestly Trappings

    Battleline
    5 x Saurus Guard (100)
    - Seraphon Battleline
    5 x Saurus Guard (100)
    - Seraphon Battleline
    5 x Saurus Guard (100)
    - Seraphon Battleline

    Behemoths
    Bastadilon (280

    Battalions
    Eternal Starhost (130)

    Total of 1190

    I'm not sure how to fill the last 310 points with somany good options.

    What can be advised?

    I can choose from:

    OB on carnosaur
    SV on carnosaur
    Troglodon
    3 Kroxigor
    10 Cam Skinks
    20 Skinks
    1 Salamander

    I suggest the Saurus Scar-vet, for 240 points.
    Then one unit of skinks, just to fill the lasts 70 points
