    I would find a way to give those Skyraiders the Jar of the Four Winds, that is a must.

    I personally don't like the Hunters but I've seen them used with good results. You are also running a bit low on Inspiring. Giving the Mage-Priest the Inspiring Talisman would be a very good idea.

    So I played two matches With this list.

    Agains Goblins; By the start of turn 5 I only had the Ghekkotah Skyraiders left, and had managed to kill a hero and a war-machine. Altho this was more of a "oops, is that how that Works?" match, getting me aclimated to the KoW rules and feel.

    Against Dwarves; By the start of turn 5 he had a horde of infantry and five heroes left, and had killed my Fire elemental and the non-potioned Primes. To be fair, he was using a "fun" list With no ranged units, fielding lots of infantry and boar-riders.

    In the goblin match, nothing realy worked for me aside from the Clan Lord and (to some extent) the Ghekkotah Skyraiders. Regeneration, high troll/giant armor and the absurd Luck discreapansy made this match extreamly one-sided.

    Against the Dwarves I learned to love the Leikadon, the blessed Rhinos, and Pathfinder.
    One Horde of Primes held back two heroes, two Boar-riders, and botlenecked a horde of infantry and more Boar-riders, witch alowed me to hit his other infantry With all my Heavys. With my overwhelming firepower i nicled-and-dimed his boar-riders to Death, eventualy sacrificing my Lekelidons setting up for the implyed boardwhipe.

    Next time I am thinking of switching the Skyriders for a horde of Warriors and the Elemetals for a Greater Version :)

    Alright.

    A little wile has passed and I thought I would post my New list.
    I have had the skylord and primes W/strenght and the Rhinos on a lot of my lists, but i have fallen out of love With them and thought I would try something New.

    Ghekkotah Warriors (Horde)
    - Hammer of Measured Force 20
    Ghekkotha Warriors (Horde)
    - Brew of Strenght

    Fire Elementals (Horde)
    - Brew of Haste

    Kaisenor Lancers (Troop)
    - Kevinar’s Flying Hammer
    Kaisenor Lancers (Troop)
    - War-bow of Kaba

    Ghekkotah Skyraiders (Horde)
    - Jar of the Four Winds

    Lekelidon
    Lekelidon

    Mage-Priest
    - Bane Chant (2)
    - Heal (3)
    - Surge (8)
    - Black Iron Crown

    Clan Lord on Fire Drake
    - wings
    - Heart-seeking Chant

    Agnih-Bhanu, Greater Fire Elemental

    Experimental---
    I figgure I need some chaff and I thought I'd pack some anti-chaf in there as well.
    The Kaisernors looked Perfect for this job. The bow and hammer are because i had 10 Points to spare.

    In my meta Group i realised i needed more speed, so Warriors With ekstra damage on top seemed like a good sub for the primes.

    The fire elemental (monster 160p) was a Complete bust but hopefully Agnih will make a good sub for the Rhinos and a smaller/easier-to-protect target.

    Tried and True---
    The horde of elementals, Clan Lord, skyraiders and a toolbox Mage-priest is, has been, and (I think) always will be staples of my list :) Love those guys.

    The Lekelidon is a constant Source of internal debate for me. De does nothing or is awesome in pure 50/50 split. Every time I think I will remove him, he suddely hits for all the marbles and routs a threthening Orc cavalry or wavers a troll horde for several turns. He is infuriatingly inconsistent, and I relate so hard.

    Further Ideas---
    Considering adding Artakl for the extra Inspiring, altho I dont know how to fit it in.

    And Danor the Wizard because he looks alot of fun.
