    Trying to make a "shooting" army. Anyone had any luck with 2-3 engines? Here's a list I'm toying with...

    Slann Starmaster -Great Rememberer, Incandescent Rectrices
    Skink Starseer
    Engine of the Gods
    Engine of the Gods

    40 x Skinks -Blowpipes & Star Bucklers
    40 x Skinks -Blowpipes & Star Bucklers
    10 x Skinks -Blowpipes & Star Bucklers

    3 x Razordons
    3 x Razordons

    Bastiladon - w/snakes
    120 points for summoning (More Razors, Salamanders, Chameleons as required)


    Potential to drop the skinks down to 3x10 for another Bastiladon but at this stage, I like the numbers for the enemy to wade through, and more shots in the double turn. With an effort, could also shift this into a heavenswatch.

    Obviously aim for the double turn but I also like the idea of going for the d6 mortal wounds option. With a slann and starmaster engine rolls should be a little more predictable.

    3 Engines could also be quite interesting too as one goes for the double turn while the others target heroes/elites with the d6 mortal wounds. Similar to razors, law of numbers means 3 of them should get you a double turn and potential for 3D6 mortal wounds (albeit unreliable).

    Unlikely to be competitive but could be fun. Interested to hear thoughts!

    Hmmmm...
    I never even thought about using more than one engine. Could work.

    I'd drop a razordon from each group and grab some handlers and an astrolith. I agree. I'd keep the skink blocks as is otherwise you wont have much of a body count

    There was someone at the GT final who had a similar list and did pretty decent, think he got an extra turn in most if not all his games!

    Interesting - Tweaked it a little, definitely going to be trying this:

    Engine of the Gods - General, Master of Star Rituals, Coronal Shield
    Engine of the Gods
    Skink Starseer - Incandescent Rectrices
    Skink Starpriest
    Skink Priest -Priestly Trappings

    40 x Skinks - Boltspitters
    10 x Skinks - Boltspitters
    10 x Skinks - Boltspitters
    3 x Razordons

    Bastiladon w/Laser
    Bastiladon w/Laser

    Heavenswatch Starhost

    I know a slann would help the engines (and the list) immensely but imtrying to keep it all skink themed. Will finish painting my second engine and give it a shot and see if it has potential
