My record with this list is
Wins vs. Dwarves, Wood Elves
Loss vs. Lizardmen (Which I barely lost because of my own poor tactics, not the list. I should have eaten him alive)
The concept of this army is to hit the enemy very hard very fast. I have been testing armies of similar design and settled on this one because of the types of enemies I generally face. I face a lot of shooting armies and I get pounded by them. With this list they have two turns to kill me or they are dead.
I use the cav, carnasaur, kroxigors, and stegadon to hit their line in one strong punch through maneuver. If I'm facing a particularly tough unit (say Chosen warriors or Iron Breakers) I will double up, hitting the one unit with more than one of my own. I make sure to dust it. My Terradons and Flying Skink of Doom are there to 1. Draw fire during the first two rounds so my large targets can get into combat and 2. Hit lone mages or that key war machine or line of shooty troops so they can't shoot at the big boys.
The mage is there to cast second sign and to use dispel scrolls. If they have magic still in operation after turn 2 when I hit them, they are really lucky. Usually it is dead during turn two or at least not a threat. By the same token I don't take more magic because by turn 2 (3 at the absolute latest) I want most of my units in combat. It is hard to cast spells that are helpful when everyone is fighting. I pretty much bury my priest somewhere in my deployment zone out of sight. The enemy has to get past my army and really focus on killing that guy. He can then lead them on a merry chase or he dies and I only lose 115 points.
I want to play at least another few battles with this list before fine tuning it some more. I live near Seattle if anyone wants to play.
