From what I can gather this seems to be a nice little list. What are you giving the skinks? Blowpipes or javelins only?

From what I can see you'll be relying on poisoned attacks to hurt bigger things and the Slaan to help out with the nasty biggies.

Plenty of troops, so you should be able to weather the storm of attrition.

My only issue is how easily you might be flanked without any fast units, sure you have terradons, but they're quite fragile... Slamanders are amazing antiflank units... find some points for them and I'd be worried about playing you.

I am concerned about how you're going to deal with elite units. None of your units have the strength to take them head on, and let's face you cannot avoid a solid unit of, say, knights, that's out to get you.

Tall, big meanies can be dealt with with blowpipes, but harder units such as Knights or in fact anything with a solid save is going to be a major pain. Bretonnians will have a field day, but then again they do against most armies.

I would, honestly, drop a unit of Saurus, and get a Stegadon, or Kroxigors, two units of them. Also, I would tend to drop the ineffective 5-skink unit. Get two more terradons with the points.

ok thanks i was thinking of boosting two units of saurus and dropping one all together
this saves points for kroxigor and to upgrade to 2nd gen slaan and 2nd level s priest
i was planning on using the 3base jungle swarm to guard one flank and use the table edge the other

i would love a stegadon but its expensive and then i think i couldnt fit the other things in

im giving my skinks blowpipes to get the best use of poison

Blowpipes are very nice, but you need to be closer than 6" for them to have any real effect (else it's move and fire twice at long range:7+ to hit, which negates the poison).

Try fitting a unit with Javelins, just to test: I've found the increased accuracy (you'll almost always hit on 4+) very useful. Not to mention the extra close combat save.

I really like this list it has basically everything covered meaning that it can take part in every stage of the game and do damage. The only thing that i would recommend is that you have some scouting skinks so that you can stop there scout from being placed in annoying places. Also which unit is the saurs scar veteran going in?

i would be tempted to guess that since the Scar vet has Sotek and Quetzl as blessed spawnings that he would be going with the unit that has 19 saurus and also has the same spawnings. could be wrong but that's what i would be doing.

Not that i use Blessed spawnings often enough in my games.

i have not used Terradons since they removed the "Drop Rock" rule. i would be tempted to try and get a stegadon in there love how hard they hit and the great unit strength.
