get skinks to start off, then go for your style of play. In most lizardmen armies around (in NZ;)) skinks are good core of army, cheap, fast, devestating if used properly and will usually take out enemies worth more than their own points worth.:angel:

Skinks also known as "Dragon Slayers" :D

Ill 3rd the start with skinks advice, then add some saurus and scar-vet champ. The stag builds are great, but will only stunt your development in using proper liz tactics

If you do not want to include a stegadon in such a small army, then you could try either of these lists which should offer a good start for you.

Skink Priest: lvl 2 wizard, Rod of the Storm (125)
Skink Skirmishers x 10 (70)
Skink Skirmishers x 10 (70)
Skink Skirmishers x 10 (70)
Kroxigor x 3 (165)
Points Total - 500

Skink Priest: lvl 2 wizard, Rod of the Storm (125)
Saurus Warriors x 15: spears, full command (210)
Skink Skirmishers x 10: Javelins and shields (80)
Skink Skirmishers x 10: Javelins and shields (80)
Points Total - 495

Best of luck to you.

Remember a steg at such a low point game is broken (especially the hero variants). If you are looking at playing a couple friendly games I would recommend getting saurus blocks, skinks skirmishers, and 3 terradons. Include a scar-vet with a great weapon and you got yourself a great unit. Also give the vet hide of the cold one, but remember you make the unit he joins stupid. So it's basically a trade off.

This one includes a variety of units that I feel sums up what the Lizardmen are about quite well.

Scar-Veteran: Great Weapon, Light Armour, Venom of the Firefly Frog

14 Saurus: Spears

12 Skinks

12 Skink Skirmishers

Razordon/Salamander

Don't use a steg at 500pts. It's a silly thing to do, and nobody will appreciate your efforts.
