    I'm assuming the meta for the tournament will be shooting armies (this army is part of that meta) I struggle against serious tarpit armies (Fyrslayers, Pink Horrors, OSB)

    I'd love to know your thoughts

    1) Saurus general is not worth it, IMO, d3 additional CCP from kroak is better. Alternatively, you can make a priest general with MoSR trait to use his CP for free. In most situations, this is better, because it is not random.

    2) I would bring celestial harmony over tide of serpents. You have more then enough instruments to deal with hordes already. CH will let you to save some CP and good, if you plan to teleport salamanders;

    3) I don't see much point in terradons without chief, even more so in just three terradons. You don't lack mobility at all. You could just take bound geminids instead;

    4) If you take burning head for reroll 1's, I don't think it is really worth it. It only works good with bastiladons/salamanders. If you take it for damage, I would still drop it and something else in favour of geminids;

    5) A bit too many 10 skink units to my taste. Especially, if you expect shooting meta and not fast units, that charge you turn 1.

    Strong list overall.

    Thanks, that’s good insight, I’ll definitely try the skink priest general. I’ll swap geminids for the terradons. I do think however re roll hits of one for skinks is clutch. You just have to watch your bubble closely.

    With the CP you generate or with hand of glory, you can have the skinks reroll 1s pretty consistently. I would have 1 starpriest with celestial harmony and 1 with hand of glory.
    Kroak as general is probably the best to get summoning points with

    With my experience with Burning head, I often find myself in situation, when I have to sacrifice good position in favor of getting reroll 1's. That's why I am not a huge fan of it. It works very good with bastiladons though.

    Looks beastly, and i like the suggestions @Nart and @Tav made. Personally I think doubling up on skink heroes is a trap, but to each their own. IMO you should always have a general that gives you summoning points in starborne, saving 1 cp a turn is not worth losing d3 summoning point.


    I'll be there as well, so maybe we'll bump into each other!!
