    Guys

    New to the fold here and trying to earn back some cool points (have been playing fyreslayers for a while until they suddenly became hip so I am changing it up!)

    My first list has a bit of inspiration from Darren’s Shadowstrike list. I loved how aggressive it could be.

    Kroak
    Astrolith
    Starpriest
    3x10 skinks
    2x razordons
    1xsalamander
    1x Bastiladon
    1x3 Rippers
    1x6 Rippers
    Skink handlers

    Shadowstrike Starhost

    Oh and 100 points left over for......well......you know

    I may play with summoning some but any thoughts would be much apprieated!!

    Welcome aboard

    You could drop the Salamander and handlers and take 2 more Razordons.

    Was thinking that...considered the extra rend and damage. But all those extra dice could be massive!!

    I guess if you go salamanders you need to commit as the single shot is too unreliable when you could have another 2 2D6

    That's exactly why I prefer Razordons.

    I feel like Razordons are such low risk vs reward compared to Salamanders, it just makes them outright better for me

    Is there much benefit to the skink handlers when running them?

    Also on a slight separate, with Kroak on a BW, does it double his summoning range as well?

    The handlers are OK but I often omit them if possible, especially when I can get reroll a from am Astrolith Bearer.

    Yes, it is the spell's range so it is doubled.

    Do you find the extra rend benefits them? If you summon them in it makes sense to omit, but if the are in your lines then I guess they can work?

    Just spit balling ideas here!!

    What extra rend? You get the same abilities with summoned Razordons as with others so the extra rend for close shooting is there anyway.
    Handlers just add a reroll for hits of 1 and that's not too useful.

    They do work and you can use those handlers as chaff or something. But in almost any case I think the 40 points are better spent on another Razordon than on Handlers.

    I rarely take Handlers except if a bataillon (like Heavenswatch or Thunderquake) forces me to do so.

    Read it wrong. My bad!

    Handlers probably work a little better with salamanders. Think I am gonna run with the 4!

    Is it better to drop all 4 in from summoning or keep some in your lines?

    Really depends on what your facing and what you want eliminating, you wouldn't send all 4 in to kill a 4 wound hero for example.
