    Hey everyone,

    One of the lovely 40k players at the local shop recently bought and assembled an Ironjawz army which consists of Megaboss on Mawcrusha, some ardboys, gore-gruntas, and a warchanter. We agreed to do a friendly 1k battle over the weekend using the First Blood battleplan. I wanted to bring something unconventional, just for the funs. I'll post my list below.

    Allegiance: Seraphon
    Mortal Realm: None (easing him into the rules)

    Leaders
    Old Blood on Carnosaur (260)
    - General
    - Trait: Disciplined Fury
    - Artefact: Blade of Realities

    Scar-Veteran on Carnosaur (240)
    - Celestite Warblade
    Skink Starpriest (80)

    Battleline
    10 x Skinks (60)
    - Boltspitters & Star Bucklers
    10 x Skinks (60)
    - Boltspitters & Star Bucklers

    Units
    3 x Terradon Riders (120)
    - Starstrike Javelins
    3 x Terradon Riders (120)
    - Starstrike Javelins
    1 x Salamander (40)

    Endless Spells
    1 x Quicksilver blades (20)

    Total: 1000 / 1000
    Extra Command Points: 1
    Allies: 0 / 200
    Wounds: 51

    So what is the game plan?

    The idea is to let him come to me but not to close. I want to try and get the first charge on his Maw Crusha to prevent him from dealing maximum damage to any of my units. I will first move up with my Terradons and drop their payload on the Maw Crusha. That averages to around 6~ mortal wounds on that 3+ save monster. + I'll have my Skink Starpriest targeting it with either arcane bolt or using Quicksilver blades to do some poking.

    If I can get lucky enough to get the charge off on him, it will turn into a punching match of me trying to slay that Maw Crusha asap. If his Maw Crusha does charge, I'm hoping it will charge into my skinks as I'll use them as screens for my Carnosaurs.

    The Salamander at range, I'm hoping, can get at least one hit off, and my Carnosaurs will buff each other to kill the Maw Crusha. If I can kill the Maw Crusha early and still have both my Carnosaurs, I think I should be able to win from there.

    The idea with this is more or less is an early burst. If I can get that off, it should work, if not, I'll have fun trying it regardless. Let me know what you think!

    I like it carnos can do some real damage, and are great at killing multi wound models in the battleshock phase

    The army looks pretty good, however you do need to be careful with the carnosaurs. They can dish out a huge amount of damage if used well, however they don’t like taking it in return.
    If you have the salamanders you could try this list. Orruks don’t have much good shooting meaning they just have to run forwards, and into some salamanders

    I like it, but I only have the one Salamander :( Also, I'm edging to try Terradons. I know they are OK from what I've read online, but since this is a friendly match, I'm just in the mood for trying some Terradon shenanigans. Although I will switch to the Greatblade for my scar-vet. I recently magnetized his hand to fit all of his weapons.

    Sounds good, just remember carnosaurs are good in sudden attack and you should be good.

    For sure. I'm going to try my best to screen with the skinks to make sure I get my carny's charging in.

    Sounds good, just make sure those skinks stay alive and your carnosaurs should be good. Pretty solid strategy :)
