    Hi
    I've recenty bought a stegadon set and decided to assemble it with skytreak bow.
    But after the gw faq and EotG rework i felt really confused.
    Now the EotG is much more useful, but the chance to roll 18 without slann is really low(~0,5%) and even skink starpriest help only a bit(~8% chance).
    In my army I have:

    Saurus oldblood on carno
    Saurus scar veteran on cold one
    10 saurus warriors
    5 saurus knights
    20 skinks
    Saurus astrolith bearer
    Skink starpriest
    Skink priest

    Is it worth to assemble stegadon as engine or i should use skytreak for my army? Thanks for help.

    For what you have I would run Stegadon with skystreak. Personally I feel that running EotG without proper support is just sub-par and unreliable. Not to mention that you don't have anything to snipe or really handle big blocks the stegadon can do both to a degree.

    If you plan to expand your list though I would look at more warriors for sure. 10 won't do anything but be a slight speed bump for most units.

    Thanks for your reply.

    You are right. I will build my stegadon with skytreak and glue down the eotg priest to 25mm base to have second priest model. I'll also use eotg ring for some conversions or maybe a piece of terrain.

    Probably i will expand my army with unit of 40 warriors with spears. I've got 10 now because of start collecting.

    You can even make the Steggy convertible between all versions!
    I did that, and I am happy with it.

    But I agree, I would go for the Bow Steggy first. It fits into many lists.

    Yep, the Stagadon with bow is the most efficient version.
    Later, you can think about the Engine
