Tomorrow afternoon, I’ll play my first 1000 point game. As I mentioned in my introductory post, I’ve only played a few 500 point games so far, and been roundly thrashed in each of them. I think my problem has been a combination of poor unit selection, poor tactics, and a lack of insight into how my different units can interact with one another. Plus, I don’t own enough Skinks. Anyway, here’s my first draft 1000 point army (it actually only comes to 980 points), with a short discussion on how I envision using it. Below my signature is a list of the 110 Seraphon Allegiance models I own, so if anybody gets ambitious they can say, “You worry me, son, you got it all wrong, see, whatcha wanna do is…” and etc. So: Ripperdactyls (3)—140 points Slann Starmaster (1, leader, general)—260 points Saurus Guard (10, battleline)—200 points Saurus Guard (5, battleline)—100 points Bastiladon (1, behemoth)—280 points Total—980 points Allegiance Abilities Battle Traits: Masters of Order, Lords of Space and Time Command Trait: Great Rememberer Artefact: Incandescent Rectrices Plan: While of course I’ll have to be reactive to my opponent’s army (which I know will be a Death army, probably with lots of skeletons) and tactics (which I suspect will involve a lot of charging), as well as what Battleplan we roll, in general I was thinking I’d set the Ripperdactyls loose to go after isolated targets, keep the smaller unit of Saurus Guards close to my Slann Starmaster in my territory, and then use Great Rememberer to (hopefully) bippety-boppety-boo the larger Guard unit and the Bastiladon around the battlefield controlling objectives and harassing my opponent’s army from the rear. My biggest worry is that my opponent will ignore my three offensive units and just run in and try to crush my general and his guard. So that’s my plan! Cheers, Christopher Models I own, presented in the order they appear in the Warscrolls section of the app, with quantities and build notes. Bastiladon—1—built with Solar Engine Chameleon Skinks—5 Kroxigor—3—need to be built Lord Kroak—1—needs to be built Razordon—1 Ripperdactyl Riders—3 Salamander—1 Saurus Astrolith Bearer—1—needs to be built Saurus Knights/Cavalry—8—1 built with Stardrake Icon, 1 built with Wardrums, 5 built with Celestite Blades Saurus Eternity Warden—1 Saurus Guard—15—5 built with Celestite Polearms, need to build 10 more, need to build them TONIGHT, in fact Saurus Oldblood—1 Saurus Oldblood on Carnosaur—1 Saurus Scar-Veteran on Cold One—1 Saurus Sunblood—1 Saurus Warriors—32—1 built with Stardrake Icon, 1 built with Wardrums, 15 built with Celestite Clubs, 15 built with Celestite Spears Skink Handlers—6 Skink Priest with Feathered Cloak—1 Skink Starpriest—1 Skinks—24—20 built with Boltspitters and Star-bucklers, 4 built with Meteoric Javelins and Star-bucklers Slann Starmaster—1 Stegadon—1 Collection notes: I’ve only painted 10 Skinks, which was fun, but I did it too fast and I’m a much better painter now, I think (I’ve been practicing/getting experience on my 40K models). Everything else is just built and primed black (except as noted above). I think I need about 60 more Skinks and a Troglodon at the least before I start expanding other battlelines and doubling up on heroes. Oh, and a Skink Starseer.
