I absolutely love the Leviadon model, but both time and money keep me from being able to build a full 2000 point army. That said, is there a fun (win as many games as I lose) 1000 point list that includes a Leviadon, or do I need to wander into the 1250 to 2000 point range before I can include one of these amazing models?

Thanks in advance!

I read your title and thought by "fun" you meant "list that isn't too strong for casual play" so that should say a lot. High-point models tend to be stronger in smaller games because the other army often lacks the tools to deal with them readily.

Imagine three people with the same set of values but radically different emotional states, each of them believes their position is more valid than the other two, they all post using the same account, and your job is to make it coherent.

You do make a lot of sense. I just love that model and would love to put it in a 1000 point army. Unfortunately, I can't bring it in as an ally in anything less than 1750 points. And, I simply don't have the money or time for that big of any army right now.

depends on your local meta. But I think it would be ok and not hyper competitive to add it in a 1000 pts game. There is worse around. I think it will be hit or miss.

You sure can, A lot of people will bring a single behemoth at 1k, at least locally. I usually bring Olynder starting at that point level, so bring a Leviadon is not bad at all. Just keep in mind your army will be pretty small! I think you can get a single hero (wizard), 2 battleline, the Levidon and one eel guard unit for about 920. Then you can fill out the rest of the points with an endless spell of your choice.

This is also a great core for building out your army. You can get to 2k from here really easily with just a few more kits.
