    Hi guys,

    I finally found some time to get back into gaming. I haven't really played all that much before and since a lot has changed I'm about as new to Seraphon as a beginner.

    I currently have a small army consisting of a bit of everything:
    1x oldblood on carnosaur
    1x troglodon
    10x saurus warriors
    5x saurus knights
    1x astrolyth bearer
    1x oldblood on foot
    1x sunblood
    1x scarvet on cold one
    1x skink starpriest
    24x skinks
    5x chameleons
    3x terradon riders

    I want to start by building my army up to 2000pts but I'm not sure about what to get next. Any suggestions about how to continue from here are very welcome.

    Cheers.

    I'm thinking about using a shadowstrike starhost, but i'm not sure about what to add to it

    Welcome back,

    For a Shadowstrike you have a priest, 2 units of skinks in any combination and a unit of Rippers or Terrodons

    So for 2000 pts you want to max out the batallion so more models benefit from it.

    Things to add in,

    Slann
    Astrolith Bearer
    Basilidon

    Slann and AB are auto include in almost every list, if you like Shadowstrike you want more skinks and rippers/terrodons to max out the units.

    An example of a 2000pts list would be,

    Allegiance: Seraphon
    Mortal Realm: Ghur

    Leaders
    Slann Starmaster (260)
    - General
    - Trait: Great Rememberer
    - Artefact: Gryph-feather Charm
    Saurus Astrolith Bearer (160)
    - Artefact: Incandescent Rectrices
    Skink Starpriest (80)

    Battleline
    40 x Skinks (240)
    - Boltspitters & Star Bucklers
    30 x Skinks (180)
    - Boltspitters & Star Bucklers
    10 x Skinks (60)
    - Meteoric Javelins & Star Bucklers

    Units
    6 x Ripperdactyl Riders (280)
    5 x Chameleon Skinks (120)
    3 x Razordons (120)

    Behemoths
    Bastiladon (280)

    Battalions
    Shadowstrike Starhost (180)

    Endless Spells
    Balewind Vortex (40)

    Total: 2000 / 2000
    Extra Command Points: 1
    Allies: 0 / 400
    Wounds: 137

    Welcome to the forums!

    Let us know if you have any questions about gameplay, painting, fluff or anything else.

    Obviously @Crowsfoot has a better grasp of Age of Sigmar than I.

    Welcome! That is a nice list, is it a purchase list or already painted? :artist::snaphappy::snaphappy::snaphappy:

    That's what I have painted so far. I plan on getting more skinks first, but after that I'm not sure yet

    Welcome back.

    @Crowsfoot is totally right. You NEED a Slann. And a bastiladon would be pretty effective. ;)

    Yeah I've been looking into it a bit already and a slann seems like a must have. I decided I want to make a skink/dinosaur army (so not using the saurus). But I guess i'll have to play a bit again first before diciding what to buy
