    With potentially a post FAQ nerf and end to Kroaknado era, was thinking of trying this list:

    Skink priest
    Skink Starpriest
    Slann
    1x20 skinks
    2x10 skinks
    2xBasti
    Razordon
    1x6 rippers
    2x3 rippers
    Starstrike

    Wanna see if I can still be aggressive with Rippers! Plus double toad could be fun. Really like the extra move from the formation and the ripper damage.

    Any thoughts from anyone would be awesome!

    I assume you mean Shadowstrike when you write Starstrike?
    The list will probably work although it is low on wounds. Pretty aggressive.

    Ahh damn yup meant Shadowstrike!

    The thought process was that if I can keep them distracted with one or two buffed basti, the wound cound wont matter as much. I had been playing a shadow strike kroak list with less wounds, but wanted to see if this was viable after a potential balewind nerf.

    I could drop a unit of Rippers for more skinks, but my thinking was a double toad has some potential for area denial

    The worry with no Kroak is how to deal with high armour and the best in here is -1 rend. Your bastis have snakes or lasers? I'd include at least 1 with snakes. Rippers are so much fun to use though :)

    I think you should keep the Rippers then, more damage. The tactic sounds solid.

    I thought 1 of each. Mystic shield (maybe even with starlight and celestrial rights if I am worried about a double) that one and throw him in their lines to cause some damage. And 12 rippers on the board( 6 in the sky) could be a LOT of dice saves

    Maybe swap the razor for a salamander?

    I just love rippers and being aggresive. Plus I like something different and know there will be a lot of Thunderquakes out there!

    We all expected a Balewind Vortex nerf but yeah, it seems it actually didn't happen (yet).

    Probably not all of us. But yeah there are enough people complaining about the Kroak + Vortex tactic that I and many others expect some changes, either to Kroak or the Vortex in order to stop that combo.

    Yeah is possible...
    But i think that is not over power to do a nerf for balance the meta game.
    Nerf vortex means nerf all models that can use it, not only kroaknando.
    Trust me no one touch this combo

    Yeah I wrote this list of the last few days before the FAQ. But there is enough talk of a nerf, that I am sure it will happen.

    Plus this is just another fun list minus the Big dead frog himself!!
