    Total: 2000 / 2000
    Extra Command Points: 2
    Allies: 0 / 400
    Wounds: 88

    I do like the idea of having the rippers in the list to get the initial toad and summon in more of them as the main hammer of the army while trying to control with summoned skink. The second list has a bigger punch at ranged though - and qs swords because I had 20pts

    Thank you in advance

    Tricky one, List 1 has a better chance of summoning in units but I like Thunderquake so I would go list 2 just to have double Basilidon on the table and summon in rippers

    I would prefer the Thunderquake list I think.
