    This is a fun list I came up with. I have no idea if this works. I have not tried the list, dont have the models for it.

    The plan is simple, charge with all Bastiladons in your first turn.
    Hero Phase
    1. Use the Skink Priests celestial rites abilities on the bastiladons to get re-roll charge/saves
    2. Cast the Cogs (set it to speed up time, +2 move/charge) and the Bridge
    3. LoSaT any Bastiladons that couldnt get in range of the bridge
    Movement Phase
    4. Move the remaining Bastiladons over the bridge. Now all of them should be 9" from an enemy unit.
    Charge Phase
    5. Charge!!! If you got the cogs up you should have +2 (+3 if you rolled "The Hunter's Steed" on the Slann) on the charge with re-roll.

    If you can get all four Bastiladons within 8" of an enemy unit they will on averege take 8 mortal wounds every combat phase (both yours and your opponents).

    I played a trimed down version of the list at 1000pts today. It was Duality of Death againt a shooty Stormcast Eternals list. It worked really well this game, the Bastiladons pinned down the majority of his army in his own territory, while my two skink units held both objectives the entire game without losing control of them. By the end of the game only one bastiladon was left standing with a couple of wounds left, the priest had 1 wound left and the skink units had taken quite some damage but still were alive.

    Sounds like fun, do you have a bat rep list? If not that’s cool, and the ark list looks pretty enjoyable to use

    I lost quite horribly, Ogors have insane damage. I was pretty much wiped out in turn 3, the bastiladons lasted 2 turns. He had 3 stonehorns that all ignored most of my snake wounds, one had ignax scales and the few wounds that got through was just healed back up by the pot.
    But the plan worked otherwise, the Bastiladons reached combat and I managed to score quite some points turn one. But they died way quicker than I thought they would. Maybe against another faction this would have worked better
