    I am going to join this one!

    I've made a list mostly for fun, but i'm probably gonna test it this weekend against Kharadron.

    Coalesced - Koatl's Claw

    LEADERS
    Slann 265
    - general: arcane might
    - spells: (shield), comet's call, celestial apotheosis, ghost mist
    Astrolith bearer 150
    ScarVet on Carno w. warspear 215
    - artefact: eviscerating blade
    Starpriest 130
    - spells: (shield), blazing starlight
    Starseer 145
    - artefact: cloak of feathers
    - spells: (shield), control fate

    TROOPS
    10 x S. Knights 220
    5 x S. Guards 115
    10 x Skinks 75

    OTHER
    5 x chama skinks 115

    BEHEMOTHS
    Dread Saurian 545

    ENDLESS SPELLS:
    - burning head 20

    total: 1995


    basically, i want to form 2 main groups:

    1) Scarvet on Carno + 10 S. Knights + Starpriest
    (the starpriest will use the staff on the knights and shield on the Carno, the Carno will buff the knights w saurian savagery for explodin 6s)

    2) DS + Slann, Guards, Astrolith and Starseer
    (magical battery to fuel the DS and 3d6 charges on the DS or the buffed knights, plus massive damage reduction tnx to coalesced and astrolith. slann and starseer will buff defense of the DS and / or attacks, subtracting 1 to saves to a enemy target)

    the group of skinks will stay hidden in the backfield for obj control, the chama skinks will give me that little teleport to threaten unguarder obj.


    edit: interestingly, the KO units embarked on their ships, are garrisoned. This should mean that the burging head or the DS' obliterating charge, should hit also the units aboard...

    Well, usually i'm a fan of thunderlizard, but i've got only two behemoths and +2 wounds is nice but not that much of a bonus.
    Leaving home the stegadon chief I'm not playing skinks, so no bastiladon or EotG to enjoy the TL command ability to shoot twice.
    The +1 to hit on charges at least will be useful for the knights and the Scarvet (which hopefully will also make good use of the mandatory eviscerating blade)

    What are the pros and cons of eviscerating blade over Amulet of destiny?

    Well, eviscerating blade is the first mandatory artefact for koatl. :p

    More seriously, on nat 6s to hit you deal 2 MWs in addition to normal damage, so with 6 attacks is not bad and i want my scarvet to join the fray anyway.

    Edit: i don’t think we actually have a viable Dread Saurian build other than "duracell". As much as i like the fun idea of teleporting my DS with starborne, we absolutely need durability and increased hitting power.

    Yeah Duracell really is the best option for the ds atm. I see why everyone goes eviscerating blade the raw damage chance for spiking is out of this world.

    Swapped out Amulet of Destiny for eviscerating blade when @Killer Angel pointed out the raw damage potential is too much to ignore

    This army is harder to run than the other one but my monsters are substantially more durable
