    I was thinking of running at least 2 bastiladons solar in a list. My mindset is they will help with making the opponent use dispel dice or take some damage. Using it to buff initiative and flank protection. Would 2 be enough or even 3? haha only 150 for a monster is fun. yes i know cannons and the like will eat them up but target saturation right!

    How big an army is this? 2 Basti's, 2 Stegs and 2 Carno's seems like it would eat a lot of points. That said, I'm curious how the multi-Blasti goes. While one isn't hard to kill, the target saturation factor might turn it into a very different sort of game. Good luck!

    I don't have a Bastiladon. Do you recommend getting one?

    Apart from being a great-looking model, its solar machine is excellent (If it gets to shoot, which it does, in my experience, once in every two turns. And even if it doesn´t it´s a great way to get rid of the opponent´s dispel dice) So yeah, I do recommend getting one. :)

    Note: Talking about 8th edition, I have no idea about how is it in AoS or 9th age ;)
