    Hello,
    I am preparing for a league, I want to play Thunder Lizards, ideally with the Thunderquake battalion, as I love Stegadons what this battalion can do. Sadly, I have only recently started and my Razordons and Salamanders are on the way, so I have to use Kroxigor to fill in the battalion. I also try to have some skinks as screens, as there are few armies charging on first turn in my league. My league has healthy mix of factions, so I try to make all comers lists.

    I have two lists in mind - one with Kroak, one without him. Kroak list plan is to screen with the smaller units and use the shooting and mortal wounds to soften the enemy to prepare for devastating charges from the Stegadons. Engine is to heal and summon additional screens.

    The non Kroak list is similar, with focus purely on shooting and then charging.
    Which one do you like better? What would you change?
    Thank you for your ideas.

    Firstly, kroxigor are a good option for the battalion and benefit well from it. They are perfect as a counter punch unit, sot them 1” behind a skink screen and walk both forward until charged.

    you are lacking bodies in both lists but i prefer the second but with some tweaks as kroak is jot particularly helpful in this setup.

    second list but take out a bastiladon and starseer for a slann.
    This gives you the CP to use the engine twice and also the 1 bastiladon as well as boardwide unbinds and such from slann

    Welcome to Lustria. @Tav has given you some solid advice.

    I prefer the second list. It is also worth considering making the Skink Priest your general to save a CP on his command ability each turn to give the Bastiladon you plan to use the TL ability on +1 to hit. I am not a huge fan of EotGs in the new battletome. I think you would better off using those points on some skink screens.
