I know, I know.... this list is for 'ard boyz? You must be asking yourself.... "Where's the Cheese?"
No, this list does not contain a double Slann. Nor, is it a Stegga-stampede. It's a nice balanced list with all the units that I am comfortable playing with. I won't lie, there are a few things I'd like to change, but funds and time are an issue right now.  It may be 'ard boyz and all, but I'm not going field unpainted minis just to win a silly tourney game.

Once you start down the dark path of unpainted minis, forever will they dominate your destiny.........

Looks good! Honestly anything with the Slaan in it will compete. I'm not a fan of the ranked Skinks with Kroxigor, and Temple Guard are VERY expensive, but go with what you know.

Your slann is over costed. Reread the discipline costs. You may take 3 for 100, not take a 3rd for 100. Each discipline after the first only costs 50 pts.

As for the rest of the list, wouldn't the spears be better off in the larger unit to make better use of the larger frontage, if it will have it, or to protect the 3rd rank from being dropped faster and loosing attacks?

maybe its just he list, but the temple guard aren't priced right. I think you meant 14 TG at 224? though I suppose as long as the total is correct, it will be ok.

Life seed is the 6+ regen right? That only effects the priest I think, so with 2W, not that great. I'd drop it for something else, giving you 60 pts with the correctly priced slann.

Might I suggest the standard of discipline for the slann-15 pts gives him ld 10, and the TG don't use his inspiring presence because he is in the unit, so that doesn't matter. Gives everything in 12" rerollable ld 10. Then to round out the 60 free pts, the armor piercing banner for the TG will make them really nasty.

Nuclear: The temple guard is a typo, and I only Have 20 spears. The best I could do is steal a rank from the other unit....

I no clue on what to spend 60 pts on, but Nuclear your are awesome!

Thank you for finding that oversight. I'm going to rework the list on last time and fix that.

Consider the advise taken and thanks again for taking time to look at my list.

Rhellion: Man your right, skinks are not the best, but I love the way the unit looks.

zealot:All I have to say is... Dan
