    Posted a couple times before but since I'm just finishing the paint for my SC box and a couple ebay pickups I figure it's time to think about what the final army will be.

    I have:
    Leaders - Oldblood on Carnosaur, Sunblood, Skink Priest, Astrolith Bearer, ScarVet on Cold One
    Troops - 15 Saurus Knights (spears), 10 Skinks (boltspitters and clubs), 23 Saurus Warriors (random mix of spears, clubs, and stabby things from the old old models that don't even have spikes on their backs)
    Other - Bastiladon (lazerz)

    My fave model is the OB on Carno, so even though I've heard it's not the most competitive, I'd like to build an army that uses it well. The Bloodclaw battalion seems a bit expensive for what it does, but it really leverages the oldblood.

    Here's a 1460 point core:
    280 - OB Carno (Coronal Shield) (Thickly Scaled Hide)
    120 - Sunblood (blade of realities)
    200 - ScarVet on Cold One x2
    200 - 10 Knights
    100 - 5 Knights
    360 - 40 Warriors (all will count as spears, but does anyone know if it'll be alright that my warrior blob has 23 spears, a flag, a drum, and 15 clubs?)
    200 - Bloodclaw Starhost

    I'm conflicted about what the support units should be. Here are the ideas I'm kicking around for the final 540 points. Any thoughts or alternatives on these?

    1 Slann, 1 Bastiladon - taking the hide off the carno and giving the Slann Vast Intellect for the 2+ rerollable basty.

    1 Bastiladon, 10 Skinks, 1 Priest, 1 Starpriest, 1 Salamander - The starpriest spell has good synergy with the knights. The two skink leaders trying to cobble together a Slann impersonation while leaving room for other stuff.

    1 Starpriest, 10 Skinks, 1 Razordon + Allies: 1 Knight-Venator, 3 Vanguard Raptors w/ Longstrikes, 3 Aetherwings - very little magic but more shooting support and a lot of rend.

    That went long. Thanks in advance for your ideas and help!

    The mixed weapon Warriors will most likely be fine outside of tournaments, if you just talk to your opponents beforehand and say: "Look, those all are supposed to have spears OK?" to avoid confusion.

    I would probably go for the Slann, it is a nice model and you can use it for a lot of stuff. A Starpriest is also a great investment because of the many Saurus that all have jaws attacks that you can buff with the Starpriest's Serpent Staff.

    From there... I would say keep your options open. A Basti is a good choice. But all the Support units also can do a lot of good, like the Astrolith bearer, or some fore support by Razordons.

    Thanks. I'm going to track down a Slann for the reasons you said and with the bonus that it's the fluffiest option too.

    I think I'm going to start running the same list except 2x10 knights and one of the scar vets on carnosaur instead of on cold one

    Glad you like it! I haven't played it yet as I've still got a few saurus warriors and a Slann to paint. I'll report back once I manage to get a game in.

    Lol I put my Bastiladon and Ob Carno on the Itza fine art gallery pages. I'll do the same with the slann soon hopefully.
