    Hi guys, new player here. I have a small handful games under my belt but I've lost several in a row so I feel like I'm clearly doing something wrong. If someone could help me build a 1500 point list from my available models for my game tomorrow, I would be very grateful! My local game store allows proxies so if I need to play my Oldblood as a ScV for example, I can.

    Here is what I have:

    Oldblood on Carno
    Skink Starpriest x2
    ScV on Cold One
    Saurus Oldblood on foot
    Troglodon
    Bastilodon x2
    3 Kroxigor
    6 Ripperdactyls
    15 Saurus Knights
    10 Chameleon skinks
    20 Saurus Warriors
    30 Skinks

    Thanks in advance!

    Edit: Accidentally wrote Razordons instead of Ripperdactyls. List updated.

    Thank you so much for the response! I have to apologize, though - I accidentally listed Razordons as a unit I own but I meant to say I have 6 Ripperdactyls. (I wish I had razordons, I'm just struggling to find some that I can afford.) Any suggestions for a list with my corrected army units?

    Perfect! I will give that a shot at my game tonight. Out of curiosity, what makes this a better list than the previous one?

    As an aside, can I just say you have a fantastic username? Lol

    There are a few things that make this list strong. Having a battalion gives you an advantage on dictating first turn. This can be very impactful on certain battleplans. Ripperdactyls are probably the best unit in our army. Razordons are a close second and would be preferred over Bastiladons though.

    The second list has a lot more reach and striking power. You should be able to play the objectives with your Chameleon and Standard Skinks while your Rippers and Bastiladons remove priority targets.

    Thanks. I was shocked it was available when I opened the account:D

    Well, I took a quick lead but lost in the last half. This list is definitely MEAN at a distance but my forces crumbled once my opponent (gitz) reached melee range. And I think I blew my ripperdactyls on the wrong unit; I focused his mangler squig but I rolled poorly and it decimated them when it was its turn to attack.

    But, lessons were learned and I know some things to do better next time. Next week is 2k against undefeated Nighthaunt so I've got some research to do!
