    Hi guys! as the title mentions, this is my first post here.

    I been playing around with different lists, and have only played a couple games with seraphon... and only a few games of AoS in generally, so im pretty new.

    at my local GW store they're running a 1500pts tournament and i really want to enter and do well... as im a sore loser eheh jk.... not really :/

    so this is the list came up with. 2 battleline requirement btw

    1500ShadowKroaknado.pdf

    so this is how i expect to run it.

    - deploy heros hopefully out of LOS of enemy and bubble wrap them if need be (we can port them later, and skinks have great movement anyways)
    - kroak uses command ability to get re rolls to create more certainty.
    - drop banner.
    - port kroak 18" away from enemy wizards so they cant unbind.
    - kroak summons balewind then does his thing (dishing out mortal wounds to elite enemy units and snipping heroes)
    **use the rerolls to make sure kroak ports and gets on balewind! VERY IMPORTANT
    ** if they have alot of shooting, use mystic shield and starlight on kroak
    - use the shadowstrike to alpha strike any enemy shooting or clear out hordes
    - skinks should be able to flood the table (board presence) and capture objectives, and potentially do abit of damage with re roll hits and wounds of 1.

    let me know what you guys think, again i haven't had many games, so be gentle hehe and all feedback is welcome, thanks :)

    Welcome!

    It is a very strong tournament list, good job!
    The list will outright break some armies without any means of retaliation.
    It is also a one trick pony. If your Alpha strike fails you are probably toast, but even then it will work against some armies.

    Just one advice: Outside of a competitive environment you will be "that guy" playing it. It is a cheesy list after all.

    Good luck in the tournament! :)

    Thanks for the post Aginor,

    Great feedback! yea i do understand the risk with the alpha strike, and making sure i pick the right targets hehe but i seems to me "correct me if in wrong" that the shadow strike is the most reliable source of high damage output. Besides the chances of a failed alpha strike is so small, right.....

    And Yes, i understand to risks of losing friends hehe I have lists that i use for fun... I might use this list with friends to practice, but i'll give them a heads up before hand... i been there and done that, with fielding filth... i used to field Archaon with Tzeentch rules :/ instant killing monsters/Heroes and Treacherous bond (cant die), very ugly!

    But thanks again for the feedback, i'll definitely keep that in mind and work on those weaknesses when going to 2000pts

    I agree that - right now - Shadowstrike is probably the best damage output we have, at least in one round. In the long run others (such as Thunderquake) might be better since the Shadowstrike flyers are most likely dead after the first round.
    So generally speaking: When using the Shadowstrike you decide the game during the first or maybe second round. If it works you win, if it doesn't work you are dead.

    Ahhh good point! i didn't think of it like that... but yea, i would love to bring a thunderquake, but i dont think i could fit it in a 1500pt army, with kroak and bearer anyways... noted though, i'll make sure i pick my targets very carefully :) thanks mate!
