    Wouldn't 20 be 480 points for attacks without any rend ? Definitely doesn't seem like TAC. Except if you wanna go vs horde ?

    I used a unit of 10, 5, and 5 in my bloodclaw. They are sort of anti horde/light infantry in that list. It balances with the Monster hunting Carnosaurs and the light hero killlers/ small unit killers of the Coldone Vets. In my meta, and in most, having some units that deal a high number of wounds even at - rend is very useful. That being said, they aren't the most efficient units to do this, but they are fast enough to keep up with the Carnies, and they benefit from the Bloodclaw. Still a weaker unit, but like I said, if you do what they are good at it, then you will find more success. Don't make them out to be a super star unit.

    I think they would be more balanced at 100 points. GH2 maybe?!?!?!?!?! Doubt it :)

    Im committed to running 4 carnos and lots of knights for this tournament at least,( I bought some knights to fill it out and want to justify the money spent), but I've incorporated a lot of the points mentioned by you all into my list.

    Here is the newest version.

    Scar-Vet on Carno
    -General
    -Legendary Fighter
    -Relic Blade
    -Warspear

    Scar-Vet on Carno
    -Warblade

    Bloodclaw Starhost

    Old blood on Carno
    -Quicksilver potion

    Scar-Vet on Carno
    -Warblade

    Scar-Vet on Coldone
    Scar-Vet on Coldone

    10x Saurus Knights
    -Lances
    10x Saurus Knights
    -Lances
    5x Saurus Knights
    -Lances

    2000/2000

    With a Scar Vet as general I can buff the two big units of knights to grant extra attacks and with the two cold one vets I am giving even more attacks and re-rolls of 1.

    I am not as min-maxed as some of the lists suggested but the trade off is I have a 4th carno

    That list looks fun! I understand your desire to use the models. Best of luck to you! I hope you find some success with the knights!

    Also, try out the other list and see if you can find some success with the firelance. The +3 to charges are great! But so is re-rolling 1's to hit . Tough trade off.

    Good point about the Scar Vet Carnie General. I really like that idea. I would maybe if consider allocating 5 more from of the 10 man units to make one 15, that way it maximizes the buff. Trade off exists of course, but that could be good. That 15 man unit, under the two Cold One buffs could do some decent damage!

    Finished the tournament going 2-1. 2 major victories and 1 minor loss. Minor loss was the result of a mistake on my part so I'm pretty upset with myself. I feel I had a good chance to go 3-0 and punted. Anyway it was a lot of fun and my opponents were all great people. I'll post a battle report later on after I unwind a little. Thanks to all for the help. The army worked great.

    Haha yeah sorry it's taking so long. Life has gotten in the way, I'm only here now thanks to wifi at work. I promise this weekend I'll have time to sit in front of my actual computer and write it.

    Question for you guys. Im looking forward to an upcoming grand tournament April 1st and I am torn on whether or not to free up the points for two units of chameleon skinks. If I did go this route the list would look like this list we have talked about before.


    Allegiance: Order

    Saurus Scar-Veteran on Carnosaur
    Saurus Scar-Veteran on Carnosaur
    5xChameleon Skinks
    5xChameleon Skinks


    Bloodclaw Battalion

    Saurus Oldblood on Carnosaur
    Saurus Scar-Veteran on Cold One
    Saurus Scar-Veteran on Cold One
    Saurus Scar-Veteran on Cold One
    10 x Saurus Knights
    5 x Saurus Knights
    5 x Saurus Knights


    1960/2000

    On the one hand, I would lose a carno and 5 knights, which would take away from some of the redundancy the original list brought to the table. On the other I would gain chameleon skinks which would bring flexibility to the list. Less target saturation means more shots on my remaining guys, but skinks could potentially kill the cannons that would be doing the shooting. Its a close call and I don't know what is the best way to go about it.

    What do you guys think? Any advice?

    Chameleon Skinks grant a bit of much needed variety, and deep strike assassinations. As you are seraphon allegiance you could put in skink handlers, as chaff, just to block some charges on a carno. But you might be better off taking a triumph. Solid list though, as mostly destruction will have an answer for 3 carnos, you should be able to take all coners though.

    To get both oldbloods on carnos to use their command ability do you bring one in the Starhost and one outside the Starhost as a general? It doesn't specify that the oldblood in the Starhost has to be the general hey? If so this opens up many more interesting possibilities

    This is actually a good idea, nice 1 @Paul Beenis :cool:
    Although this - due to the expensive cost of Bloodclaw and the 2ob - will be an army with almost solely heroes, should be a super fun list to play
