They look epic indeed. With your colours they have a very "greek" feel for me. I like it. All that's missing now is some pictures of them in action in a battle ;)

It does read like you haven't yet completely figured out the best army list / options for them yet.

Cheers my dude

Its a new army, and with COVID preventing the number of games I used to have it might take some time to find a good list for me.

I came up with a fun one the other day I want to try. Its simple but can be really effective:

Zaitrec:

Scinari Cathallar - General, Fast Learner
Scinari Cathallar - Silver Wand
30 Vanari Auralan Wardens
10 Vanari Auralan Wardens
10 Vanari Auralan Wardens
20 Vanari Auralan Sentinels
10 Vanari Auralan Sentinels
10 Vanari Auralan Sentinels
Auralan Legion
Hyshian Twinstones
Prismatic Pallisades
Allies (370/400)
Isharann Soulscryer
20 Namarti Thralls

125W, 4 Drops

Basically 30 Wardens deploys center with 20 sentinels behind (inc characters)

Flanked by 10 Wardens with 10 Sentinels behind

Army moves forwards 6inch each turn until at points, using the 40 shots doing mortal wounds on 5/6 to reduce heroes/snipe support units.

Meanwhile the Thralls with Scryer can deepstrike anywhere within 9" or an enemy, get +3 to their first charge (so 6+ reroll with command point) to smash into someones rear line

Played a game vs Tempest eye Cities of Sigmar yesterday

Battle for the pass, realm of metal

I used the above list, he roughly had:

Freeguild General
Assassin
Knight Incantor
Celestial Hurricanum with Celestial Battlemage
Celestant Prime
3 Demigryph Knights
30 Crossbowmen
2 x 10 Freeguild Handgunners
20 Freeguild guard (swords)
20 Freeguild guard (halberds)
10 Shadow Warriors

So I won 18-9 at top of turn 4, but it could have gone either way as we were tied at the end of turn 3.

Neither of us got the double, and that hurt him, especially as he dropped his Prime down turn 1 to tie up my block of 20 archers from sniping his heroes, and it died turn 2 (he did kill 9 guys)

My Thralls tried to do something similar turn 1, but couldnt get enough into his crossbows to wipe the unit (I got 11) and they just got shot off the next turn, but it help them from shooting other stuff. Still not sure on the thrall/scyer combo. If I drop palisades and them it gives me 410 to play with so might see what I can get for that

Probably will try this:

Zaitrec
Scinari Cathaller - General, Fast learner, pretty pointless Zaitrec artifact tax (Ethereal/Solar Flare)
Scinari Cathaller - Silver Wand (Eclipse/protection)
Light of Eltharion
30 Vanari Auralan Wardens (Protection)
10 Vanari Auralan Wardens (Ethereal)
10 Vanari Auralan Wardens (Lambent light)
10 Vanari Auralan Sentinals (Eclipse)
10 Vanari Auralan Sentinals (Solar Flare)
10 Vanari Auralan Sentinals (Ethereal)
10 Vanari Auralan Dawnriders (Speed)
Auralan Legion
Hyshian Twinstones
Aethervoid Pendulum
