    First off, WELCOME BACK TO THE EIGHTH! :D

    It's a good list. Without knowing who you're going up against, I'd say switch the Skirmishers blowpipes for Javelins so you can March and shoot which makes a big difference (with blowpipes almost always being at long range and Skinks having moved you can't uses Multiple Shots without sacrificing your Poison special rule) and I'd take something else for the Skink Cohort. Unless you mean this to be a Kamikaze unit (for O&G fanatics or something like this) they are a terrible liability who will get mutilated in the first round of any combat. Much better to take more Skirmishers if that's what you're going for.

    Any ideas who you're playing? Then I'd have more to say about it. :)

    Looks pretty strong! Oh, and you can cut the light armor on the scar vet as thick-skinned cold one brings it to 1+ anyway. I always like to have a TG bunker around my slann, but it's not essential. With the amount of poison you're packing, your opponents' monsters will die very quickly.

    My first opponent will also have lizardmen, but i thinkhe will quickly switch to Empire, because he wants to buy them so much!
    My thinking- the cohort is a unit i put pu slann into, so he he l be safe from shooting. I do not plan to put them on the frontline. But sugestion well recieved, especially with the javelins!
    @The Great White Lizard- are you sure with the save calculation? Remember, its charmed shield, not entchanted one.

    Oh, sorry I was thinking enchanted for some reason. Temple guard are ideal for Slann protection as they are stubborn when a slann joins their unit and the slann gets to be put in the second row. The TG aren't worth the points if they aren't up front though, and the skink cohort are fine for some additional protection. Empire are a very diverse army. I haven't played against them much myself, so I can't give much helpful advice. Be sure to upload the battle report!

    I have had success with Wandering Deliberations against my friend using WoC.

    I would say do Focus of Mystery. Empire are generally low toughness so pretty much every spell in that Lore will be useful for you. Plus you can switch out spells as needed. (Use the storm spell against his cannons!)
