    Hey I've been painting seraphon for a year now because I love the models and am just learning how to play. I got the old start collecting box already painted and the new skink one half through now. I built the trogolodon with oldblood on the ground and am currently deciding on ripperdactyls or terradons

    I'm wondering what a good 1000 point list would look like just using these two boxes. Also looking for some ideas for future model purchases for upgrading the army.

    Nice! Welcome to Jurassic Park!

    (I’m sure a nice mod will pop by and stick this in the introductions thread @The Red Devil )

    Be sure to check out all areas of the site, there are already lots of AOS threads that can answer your questions on army compositions.

    Enjoy!

    Welcome along!

    You can search on some of the 1000 points lists on the forum to see what matches your models.

    Some other memebers can give you more specific advise

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Welcome to Lustria.

    Please post some photos of what you have been painting in hobby forum. There are a few great ways to expand your army. If you aren't concerned with being competitive then I suggest leaning into a theme. If there is a particular unit you really like then start collecting some of them. If you are looking to be competitive then here is a short list of great buys:

    • Lord Kroak
    • Malign Sorcery (Particularly Geminids of Ulgysh)
    • Bale Wind Vortex
    • Saurus Astrolioth Bearer
    • Salamanders
    • Lots of Skinks
    • Skink Priest

    As far as building a list with your Two SC boxes give this a try:

    Allegiance: Seraphon
    - Constellation: Koatl's Claw

    Leaders:
    Saurus Oldblood
    (110)
    - General
    - Warblade
    - Command Trait: Dominant Predator
    - Artefact: Eviscerating Blade
    Skink Oracle on Troglodon (260)
    - Celestial Harmony
    Skink Starpriest (120)
    - Hand of Glory

    Battleline:
    5 x Saurus Knights (100)
    - Lances
    10 x Saurus Warriors (90)
    - Clubs

    Units:
    3 x Terradon Riders (90)
    - Sunleech Bolas

    Behemoths:
    Bastiladon
    (220)
    - Weapon: Ark of Sotek

    Total: 990 / 1000
    Extra Command Points: 0
    Allies: 0 / 200
    Wounds: 60

    Your Wizards and Bastiladons are going to be relied on to get most of the work done. The Knights can also do some moderate damage when buffed by the Skink Priest's Serpent Staff and Koatl's Claw traits on the charge.
