    Hey Everyone

    So i want some opinions on this list i am planning on running at the end of the month at a local tournament here in Scotland.

    I played with the idea of a shadow strikebreaker but just thought it was a lot of points just for the enemy to counter with a meat shield of units.

    Skink Priest - 80
    Slann - 260
    Knight Incantor - 140

    Skinks (10 man) - 60
    Skinks (10 man) - 60
    Saurus warriors (10 man) - 100

    Chameleon Skinks (10 man) - 240
    Chameleon Skinks (10 man) - 240
    Chameleon Skinks (10 man) - 240
    Chameleon Skinks (10 man) - 240
    Chameleon Skinks (10 man) - 240

    Everblaze comet - 100

    Total - 2000

    The idea of this list is to assassinate key units from the enemies army and then play for objectives.
    The army will be able to move all over the map.

    What do you guys think?

    Honestly in 2000 points I really think you should run some form of battalion since you're going to be putting yourself at a huge disadvantage with some of those extra rules especially at those point values. I don't think chameleon's are that great at assassinating key units either, when for similar points you could take Ripperdactyls which would perform much better than your chameleons at killing key targets.

    Welcome to Lustria Online!

    I would consider putting a Shadowstrike Starhost into your list if you are aiming for assassinations. Chameleon Skinks are fantastic units.

    See i was toying arround with a list that involved a shadowstrike but i found most lists just block out the rippers where chameleon skinks would be able to pop up in terrain with a 3+ and have the option to go back into hiding the next turn if needed

    Shadowstrike doesn't have to assassinate only heroes and backline support. They are quite capable or cleaning up even hordes. Chameleon Skinks are great units though. Their damage isn't remarkable, but they are fantastic at tying up enemy units.

    You could take a shadowstrike Starhost using some Chameleon Skinks so that they benefit from the battalions rerolls.

    Perhaps something like this:

    Allegiance: Seraphon
    - Mortal Realm: Ulgu

    LEADERS:
    Slann Starmaster
    (260)
    - General
    - Command Trait : Great Rememberer
    - Artefact : Miasmatic Blade

    Skink Starpriest (80)
    - Artefact : Spellmirror
    Knight-Incantor (140)
    - Allies

    UNITS:
    6 x Ripperdactyl Riders (280)
    10 x Chameleon Skinks (240)
    10 x Chameleon Skinks (240)
    40 x Skinks (240)
    - Boltspitters & Star Bucklers
    10 x Skinks (60)
    - Boltspitters & Star Bucklers
    10 x Skinks (60)
    - Boltspitters & Star Bucklers
    3 x Razordons (120)

    BATTALIONS:
    Shadowstrike Starhost
    (180)

    ENDLESS SPELLS:
    Everblaze Comet
    (100)

    TOTAL: 2000/2000
    EXTRA COMMAND POINTS: 1
    WOUNDS: 123

    So i didn't update for a while got busy but i went to the tournament with the finalised list below and i think you'd be surprised at how well it played.

    Allegiance: Seraphon

    Leaders
    Slann Starmaster (260)
    - Great Remember
    Skink Priest (80)
    - Priestly Trappings
    Knight-Incantor (140)
    - Allies

    Battleline
    10 x Skinks (60)
    10 x Skinks (60)
    10 x Skinks (60)

    Units
    3 x Razordons (120)
    3 x Salamanders (120)
    3 x Skink Handlers (40)
    10 x Chameleon Skinks (240)
    10 x Chameleon Skinks (240)
    10 x Chameleon Skinks (240)
    10 x Chameleon Skinks (240)

    Endless Spells
    Everblaze Comet (100)

    Total: 2000 / 2000 Extra Command Points: 0 Allies: 140 / 400 Wounds: 107

    It was only a 1 day tourney consisting of 3 games but i won the first 2 games vs, (Death, Deepkin) and lost the last game against Death.
    The last game was only really lost due to my blunder of trying to take 2 zombie dragons out in 1 turn instead of focusing on just the one.

    Its really worth a try and is hilariously fun

    @Ryboog So, originally, I thought your list would not do well. Based on your post though, I'd really be interested in reading a battle report on this tournament.

    Me too.
    It is a very unusual list. I like unusual things. Even more so when they work! :)
