    Imho skinks without shields become a dsictraction carnifex. Theyre squishy and a potential threat so opponente Will be quite eager to annihilate Them for some easy and impactfull casualities. You probably wont be able to rely on blocks like that to survive long enough to actually do decent damage in most games. But they draw away fire and that in itself may be valuable. Plus if they do get ignored they pack enough of a punch.

    Carnifex's are 8 wound tough 7 -1 to be hit by ranged in a game dominated by ranged... not exactly squishy lol

    Theres 40 skinks, that's plenty of bodies to make a pretend distractioncarnifax out of.

    Anyway the point is more that a block of skinks without shields has a massieve target painted on en as theyre Both easy to kill and a decent threat when left alive. So it van play the same role as a distractioncarnifax

    I'm new to AOS (after a long break from Warhammer), but so far what I like about a skink block as distraction is that a lot of the value comes from the skink priest and starpriest. Both of which can buff Stegadons. So if they do put a lot of hurt into that block of skinks (and they should), then you lose the 240 points of value, but turn the priest and starpriest buffs over to your stegadon or kroxigor (depending on the buff) and are still bringing a lot of the hurt that had been allocated toward that skink 'combo'.

    lol all I was saying is they aren't squishy. hell you should see the errata/FAQ on old one eye.... he's un-targetable by ranged as long as another carnifex is within 3 inches.

    Any thoughts on the new realms rules? It kinda sucks to lose all the old artifacts and also now we *have* to play in a specific realm according to the GHB 2020. Are any of the new artifacts worth picking over what we have in our battletome?

    Our relics are all better in my opinion. There were some genuine problem artefacts that are now gone though. So it is a mixed bag. I miss the flavor and variety, but I am not sad to see some of the old auto-picks fade away. I do largely like the new realm rules though. and not having to roll on a table makes it easier to have a more concrete expectation for games played in each realm.

    Probably the only one with some value is the Predator's Torc from Ghyran.
    Nice to try something different once in a while.

    I miss only the aetherquartz brooch, because it made my thunderquake lists work. They are still usable, but became weaker.
