    Two Taurosaurs looks AWESOME. Still going with the 2x20 Saurian Warriors? And 10 Raptor Riders? It might be just crazy enough to work.

    I think Warriors are at their best as either 10x chaff or 35x heavy infantry. As multiple units of 10, they're cheap enough to redirect and chaff up, but they can also beat the living daylights out of most other chaff, and offer serious supporting charges.
    As a max-size block, you can give them spears and Serpent Totem for 4 ranks of Attacks - 5 Attacks per model frontage, as long as the unit has kept up its numbers.
    These seem to be the best configurations of Saurian Warriors, but I haven't fielded 20 in a long time, so maybe they'll work out, too.

    i had 40, so I blocked them up in 2 units of 20. That's about all the thought I put into it. I don't really know what I'm doing with 9th age.
