    The shield won't do you any good defensively (you'll be using the mount's Defensive Characteristics) - is it only there for the Serrate Scales? Not a bad idea at all, it looks like that's the only thing that can get us +2 Attacks.

    It looks like you're skipping Special Equipment on the Caiman Ancient, is that correct?

    The big Warrior block, alongside the huge Caiman block, looks like it could be a lot of fun. With the Caimans, Alpha Carno, and Rhamphs, you've got a lot of fast-moving, hard-hitting stuff. The big Warrior unit and the Thyro are both good anchors, so this is a list that would lend itself well to a refused flank - not the Deployment type, but the strategy: Deploy the Warriors and Thyro to the middle, and the three big guns all on one flank. Let your skirmishers slow down the far flank, while your Warriors and Thyro hold up the middle, and hit the near flank with everything. If it goes well, you'll destroy one flank and be able to turn and run through his army, taking on a few units at a time.

    What's the thinking behind your magic set-up? Sun Engine, Druidism, Apprentice instead of Adept, Jade Staff, etc.?

    I was thinking of the 4+ 5+ regen to be honest from the magic, and healing wounds I meant to put adept as well need to make a change there
