    Oh no I thought of you when I saw it had shipped and was like theres no way I got mine shipped if theres others with orders floating out there. Hopefully you can get yours in your hands soon.

    I can link you to the expired Kickstarter. The Dread Saurian equivalent is towards the bottom, number 60.

    Or here I guess.

    I do not have a link to the illustration in Monstrous Arcanum.

    Thanks for the visual. I remember looking at that Kickstarter. I thought that creature labeled 60 was a Carnasaur. (Because shorter front legs I guess...)

    A Bad rep is not what a dread will get, you have to find a list where he fits in. 420 points are all little bit, especially in 1000-1500 point games. With a Nice LoSaT he can get so much value Out of nowhere and with His Potential to oneshot keYunits he cannot be ignored. I personally havent played my as much often as i would, but when i set him up, He is always feared from the beginning.

    I was able to insert the beast in a 1000 points game, alongside a stegadon (and I did), but at 420 it's too costly. Probably it can still be done in an effective way, providing you summon things to swarm the rest of the battlefieldā€¦

    Slann 260
    Dread 420
    10 skinks 60
    10 knights 180
    2 razordons 80

    or

    Slann 260
    Astrlith 160
    Dread 420
    10 skinks 60
    10 skinks 60
    1 salamander 40

    I read this thread from top to bottom and all the while thinking about whether the wife would react to a Ā£150/$230 hit on my finances. I came so close to buying one it is unreal but can't currently justify it.

    In the back of my mind I was just worried about how much game time I'd get out of it too. Wether people would let me actually use the FW model in GW set-up (even though I see nothing wrong with it).
