    Hi all,

    So I've been thinking about 3rd edition and the changes going forward. I have a bit of a lopsided collection but was wondering would I could do with the following:

    Lord Kroak
    Oracle on Troglodon
    Oldblood on Carnosaur
    Skink Starpriest
    Skink Priest
    Oldblood on foot
    Engine of The Gods
    Stegadon with Skystreak Bow
    2 Bastiladon
    40 Skinks with blowpipes and clubs
    10 Saurus Guard
    Astrolith Bearer

    I was thinking something along the lines of:

    + Leader +

    Engine of the Gods [265pts]

    Lord Kroak [430pts]

    Skink Oracle on Troglodon [270pts]: Godbeast Pendant

    Stegadon with Skink Chief [305pts]: Skystreak Bow

    + Behemoth +

    Bastiladon [235pts]: Solar Engine

    + Battleline +

    Saurus Guard [115pts]: 5 Saurus Guards, Saurus Guard Alpha, Stardrake Icon Bearer, Wardrummer

    Skinks [225pts]: 30 Skinks, 2x Reinforced, Skink Alpha
    . Boltspitter and Moonstone Club

    Skinks [150pts]: 20 Skinks, Reinforced, Skink Alpha
    . Boltspitter and Moonstone Club

    + Allegiance +

    . Allegiance: Seraphon
    . . Starborne: Dracothion's Tail, Show Celestial Conjuration Table

    ++ Total: [1,995pts] ++

    Created with BattleScribe

    The theory is to lean into the magical prowess of Kroak, by using the Oracle as a forward staging post, thereby allowing him to get Celestial Deliverance off more often. The Godbeast pendant is also there for when the Oracle inevitably dies, to at least give a chance for him to come back for more Celestial goodness.

    The rest is pretty standard far I think. A number of big beasts to provide lasers, bows and lottery tickets. Saurus Guard are ablative wounds for Kroak and the Skinks are there to run around and try to make a late push for objectives, or screen the Oracle.

    Any thoughts or tips? I'm aware it's leaning into the Kroak/Oracle a lot and I'd love to get an Astrolith Bearer in there, but I'm not sure what to remove.

    Thanks in advance!

    I think it would all work a lot better as thunder lizard as the bastiladon alone becomes essentially twice as good and kroak can still cause a lot of havoc


    5 guard
    30 skinks
    10 skinks

    Seem's about right, TL is really good now. Also I always feel you want Salamander's with Starborne, they're still strong! Porting them in and obliterating something is such a powermove.

    So head's up, I'm a new player and haven't considered Starborne much till now. If you want to play a Starborne List I would invest in some Salamanders and then you could run something like this:

    Allegiance: Seraphon
    - Constellation: Fangs of Sotek
    - Mortal Realm: Ghur
    - Grand Strategy:
    - Triumphs: Inspired

    Lord Kroak (430)
    Saurus Astrolith Bearer (150)
    Skink Priest (80)
    - Universal Prayer Scripture: Heal
    Skink Starpriest (130)
    - Spell: Hand of Glory
    Engine of the Gods (265)
    - General
    - Command Trait: Nimble
    - Artefact: Amulet of Destiny (Universal Artefact)

    30 x Skinks (225)
    - Boltspitters Celestite Daggers & Star Bucklers
    - Reinforced x 2
    10 x Skinks (75)
    - Boltspitters Celestite Daggers & Star Bucklers
    10 x Skinks (75)
    - Boltspitters Celestite Daggers & Star Bucklers

    2 x Salamander Hunting Pack (240)
    - Reinforced x 1

    Stegadon (265)
    - Weapon: Skystreak Bow

    Endless Spells & Invocations
    Soulsnare Shackles (65)

    Total: 2000 / 2000
    Reinforced Units: 3 / 4
    Allies: 0 / 400
    Wounds: 116
