    This thread is dedicated to the lists I build and run for tournaments and casual play. Each list will have a limited overview of how they are intended to operate. Comments and discussion are welcome, but the point of this thread was to give me a link tool for other discussions.

    All list are Match Play legal for Age of Sigmar 2nd ed Battletome: Seraphon 2020.

    Here are the links to this thread's previous incarnations for those who are interested:

    These list are still in various stages of Theorycraft as I have not had the opportunity to play test most of them.

    Shadowstrike FoS w/Terradons

    Allegiance: Seraphon

    -Starborne
    -Fangs of Sotek


    Leaders:
    Skink Starseer
    (160)
    - General
    - Command Trait: Master of Star Rituals
    - Spell: Tide of Serpents

    Saurus Astrolith Bearer (160)
    Lord Kroak (430)
    - Spell: Stellar Tempest
    Skink Starpriest (80)
    - Spell: Hand of Glory
    Skink Priest (70)
    Terradon Chief (70)

    - Artefact: Serpent God Dagger


    Battleline:
    40 x Skinks (280)
    - Boltspitters & Moonstone Clubs

    Units:
    12 x Terradon Riders (360)
    - Sunleech Bolas
    12 x Salamander Hunting Packs (240)

    Battalions:
    Shadowstrike Starhost

    Endless Spells / Terrain / CPs:

    (40)

    Total: 1990 / 2000
    Extra Command Points: 1
    Allies: 0 / 400
    Wounds: 135


    In general this army doesn't actually need to start any of the Terradons off the table. However due to Terradons 6+ save if you think the enemy will be able to target and remove them before your first turn then place them into the heavens for safekeeping. This list is very brittle and is all about throwing MW's at the enemy to break apart their list.

    Salamanders! Lots and Lots of MW output in this list. Use the 20x unit of Skinks to screen your Hunting Packs. There was even room for a retinue of Saurus Guard to make Kroak that much harder to kill.

    The ScV on Carnosaur with Sword of Jugement can reach +2 to hit very consistently. This means SoJ will trigger on 4+'s!

    Use the Knights to tie up units, block choke points, and in general prevent your opponent's movement. The real stars are the Carnos. Sell their lives dearly, and make sure you aren't wasting combat activations by staggering the turns you send your behemoths into the fray.

    This list can be run as Thunderquake to give your Oldblood SIX jaw attacks.

    Kroxigor!

    Our crocodilian minions have gotten much better. Buff up the Terradons or Skinks and unload into the enemy. This list lacks Hunting Packs. Which means the Terradons main job should be to kill enemy support heroes and other units the army otherwise can't access. Use the 40x Skink unit to soak the board and send volleys of darts across the field. Only charge them into the fray if you are likely to clear yourself free of combat, or really to deal the crippling blow to vulnerable units. By the time your opponent has taken care of Skinks and Terradons they will be staring down six Kroxigor.

    Strong timing will make or break this list.

    Thinking about fitting in a battalion to make room for Aetherquartz Brooch. All skink buffs pile on the Rippers, then spam CP from the Ripper Chief. Rippers can be held back a turn or two and buffs can be applied to the skinks instead.

    Knights and Kroak!

    Put Kroak on the BwV with an Astrolith. Then vector with a forward Skink Wizard/Priest and splash MWs across the enemy.

    Buff 1 unit of knights at a time and then fling into the fray.

    List can be modified to include a large block of Saurus Warrior by switching to a ScV on Co and dropping two units of Knights down to 5.

    Lots of Saurus and only five drops. It is likely worth dropping the 10x unit of Saurus Knights down to 5 models and bringing Geminids, but every and now and then I want to play with a big unit of Knights.

    The extra 50 points can be spent on CP or some endless spells.
