    Hi all,

    Complete newbie here doing some theory crafting before purchasing my first models. I've done a bit of thinking and seen I can get exactly 1000 points out of a couple of starter sets and a unit of skinks:

    Allegiance: Seraphon

    LEADERS
    Saurus Scar-Veteran on Carnosaur (240) - General - Command Trait : Thickly Scaled Hide - Warblade - Artefact : Phoenix Stone
    Saurus Oldblood (120) - Suntooth Maul - Artefact : Obstinate Blade

    UNITS
    20 x Saurus Warriors (200) -Clubs
    10 x Saurus Knights (200) -Blades
    10 x Skinks (60) -Boltspitters & Star Bucklers

    BEHEMOTHS
    Troglodon (180)

    TOTAL: 1000/1000 WOUNDS: 81

    To me, this looks reasonable. I'd be interested to hear a few things from some more experienced players however.

    - What are the pros and cons of this list?
    - How is the setup looking on my leaders? Is there a better way to do it?
    - Spears v blades/clubs on the Saurus units - what's more viable?
    - How should I look at expanding my collection going forward?

    Thanks a bunch, I can't wait to get started.

    Take a look here on how to get the most out of a Start Collecting box: http://www.lustriaonline.com/threads/getting-the-most-from-your-start-collecting-seraphon-box.20560/

    Cons of your list:

    Troglodon not great without a Slann in my opinion.
    Warriors weak, particularly in a pack of 20, need 40 to really get your moneys worth.
    Knights are pretty bad without firelance and a lot of buffs.
    10 skinks is gonna get shot of the board quickly.

    If you get two SC boxes and follow the guide at the top you'll get yourself a bunch of units you can use to mix and match something a bit more competitive.

    The biggest thing to remember in Seraphon land is that our units work best when they can buff and receive buffs off each other.

    Welcome! :)
    As for your list: I think @Ritual has pretty much said everything already.
