Totally agree a few units of skinks are great for annoying units and great for leading frenzy troops all over the board. Never be afraid to sacrifice a unit of skinks.Never forget that you need skinks to hold the flanks up, and to give all that fast cavalry what-for
Take at least one unit of jav skinks. They have no negative modifiers and have a +5 save in combat. They can surprise you sometimes. Plus if you take a sacred host they can be 4+ in combat.Don't be bothered with javs, 'cuz when you have to get that close in, they will charge you, and put a miserable end to your skinks
Totally agree, a solid block of 20 at least and maybe two units will stand firm. Just becareful about fear causing troops. Quetzl gives them 3+ save in combat. Never take spears they cost too many points.NEVER, and I mean never, go into battle without some heavy blocks of saurus
Nothing wrong with the magic trap. A suped up slann will wipe the board in the magic phase, and with its 4+ invulnerable and magic items it will actually survive better than a carnosaur especially against certain armies. Also don't get tricked into picking all the heavy costing spells with the slann. Sometimes the best spells are the default magic missles. With the slanns powers it can dish out tons of magic missles in one magic phase. Carnosaurs are great if they are supported by saurus calvery and other fast moving troops. If you have saurus and just a carnosaur it will get shot to death in no time. Also carnosaur against dragon = dead carnosaur.With magic, don't fall into the trap of getting an uberated slann. They may be good, but they can still be killed. Instead, invest your points in a carnosaur. It allows you to take down the big things that may challenge your army, and with a big man on the back like an oldblood, the whole thing just gets worse.
Drop the stegadon, its BS is terrible and you will hit maybe once a game with the bolt thrower. It probably will die quickly to shooting or if charged right down the middle of an army will get killed by combat res. Its good for flank protection but it can be expensive.Finally, never go anywhere without a trusty stegadon. Period
