    Hi all, long time lurker and have finally decided to join in!

    Around 6 months ago I came back to 40k after 18 years away from the hobby and have been playing orks; after the announcement of the new edition I decided to stick a pin in 40k until that dropped and give AoS a spin.

    Asking the guys in my local GW store about less-played armies, apparently not only did none of them play Seraphon, but none of them even knew anyone that played Seraphon! I love to play an unpopular army (hence orks in 40k!), and also Aztec lizards riding dinosaurs for the win!

    I started with the Start Collecting! box and battletome and have quickly built and painted another of those plus various extra bits so currently I have:

    Old blood on Carnosaur
    Skink Starpriest
    Old blood on foot
    Scarvet on Cold One
    Skink Chief
    3 units of 5 Saurus knights
    20 Saurus warriors w/spears
    20 Skinks w/blowpipes and shields
    10 Chameleon Skinks
    Troglodon
    Bastilidon w/solar engine (because dinosaurs with laser beams!)

    All speed painted using the 'dip method' - dirty but so so quick!

    I've played 3 games so far, first one at 600 points against Nurgle where I took a beating due to bad dice and getting to grasp with the rules (pile in, alternate combat activations etc), second at 1100 against Slaanesh which ended with my Scarvet as last lizard standing and being munched by the last 5 remaining daemons left on the table, and most recently against dwarves at 1500 points where my opponent brought a ton of artillery/shooty stuff but lucky for me he had terrible dice syndrome that day and I tabled him in 3.5 turns.

    So that's me, looking forward to picking people's brains for ideas in building my army!

    Thanks for your welcomes! I've posted some pictures on the painting board as suggested - be kind with your comments...

    @Warden - I'll be dragging my orks out for the launch of new 40k this weekend so I'm sure I'll get around to putting some pics up at some stage :)

    Well we certainly have people here who know how to play Seraphon. Not me, but I help facilitate discussions and archive tactica discussions that other people write. My expertise is in 8th edition game play and killing fictional characters in fluff pieces.
