When you think of a Skorne army you usually don’t think of shooting. Well take a look at this:
Sure that cyclops shaman might pick a solo off every once and in awhile but, definitely you aren’t worried about losing that front line. With the release of Xerxis 2nd iteration now skorne shooting lists received a definite boost. It is still no dead eye gun mage but, it is a start. Xerxis 2 feat gives additional dice for attack and damage rolls. Meaning for 1 turn your armies attacks are extremely accurate.
Xerxis 2 also has access to mobility making his skorne battle group one of the fastest. Combine this with already a decent speed of the Basilisk Drake you can have beasts fast up the board in potentially lethal spots. The Basilisk Drake has a Spray 8 Rat 5. It is niche tool at best when playing with just one. However, when combined with the mobility of Xerxis 2, the accuracy of his feat, and multiple drakes it can become a giant fire breathing monster.
The List: 35 points skorne
