    Hi all,

    I am attending the six nations next weekend in Scotland and will be paying my first AOS2 game there (no time to practice, still painting Saurus Knights..).

    Lists are in and I am taking this:

    Allegiance: Seraphon
    Mortal Realm: Hysh
    Slann Starmaster (260)
    - General
    - Trait: Great Rememberer
    - Artefact: Incandescent Rectrices
    Engine of the Gods (220)
    - Artefact: Light of Dracothion
    Engine of the Gods (220)
    Engine of the Gods (220)
    - Artefact: Lens of Refraction
    Engine of the Gods (220)
    Saurus Scar-Veteran on Cold One (100)
    10 x Saurus Knights (180)
    - Lances
    5 x Saurus Knights (90)
    - Lances
    5 x Saurus Knights (90)
    - Lances
    3 x Ripperdactyl Riders (140)
    Dracothion's Tail (80)
    Firelance Starhost (150)
    Quicksilver Swords (20)

    Total: 1990 / 2000
    Extra Command Points: 2
    Allies: 0 / 400
    Wounds: 103

    I hope to pump out Ripperdactyls for free using the Engines and tie the enemy up. By turn 2 I'll summon a 5th Engine and hopefully pump out more Ripperdactyls through out the game.

    My hope is the Lens of Refraction will neuter any incoming spells, the Slann's command ability will help shrug off any shooting and the amount of models I'll be summoning will screen the Engines while they pump out more Rippers, mortal wounds or heal each other as required.

    It may or may not work, as I have no idea what the new rules are like, looks alright on paper though :)

    I'll write it up later this month on how it goes

    haha, i love it !!!
    the multi summoning for unbelievable numbers of wounds.
    summon 80(!) Skinks or 40(!) Warriors or 12(!) Rippers per turn sounds so broken on paper!
    and the can move, charge, shoot!!!!
    and that is all without the slann summoning, what is going on :).

    How much-many extra models are you bringing, hoping to spam-summon them?

    Haha is this the edition of free summoning so buy more models. Well done Mr Games Workshop, that record year they've just had might be even better next year.

    Love the list BTW!

    I cannot wait to see how this works. It is a bold move! I was thinking that the EotG got much better in 2.0 but I never thought to run 4 of them! Did you have to borrow some of those as well or did you just have 5 laying around? If you did I am not sure if I would be impressed or worried.

    I really like the list!

    I started reading it on my phone while scrolling down and was like "Oh nice 2 Engines, wait 3, oh wow 4 Engines fit in 2k? i need more engines!" this is one list i thought of myself:D if the engine summoning stays untouched i think this is one of the best ways to play Seraphon at the moment :)

    Ahahaha @darren watson that is one of the most insane lists I have seen in quite a while!
    I have played with the thought of trying a list with two or three EotG in it just "for the lulz", but you say "four" while keeping a straight face. :D
