Hey all =D

Still flirting with the idea of what to do, as I'm easily distracted by the nearest shiny object, I've decided to try writing up a Lizardmen list! =D
Let me know what you think!

Slann 410
Focus of Mystery
The Focused Rumination
Cupped Hands
Bane Head
Battle Standard Bearer

Skink Chief 380
Ancient Stegadon
Stegadon War-Spear

Skink Priest 400
Engine of the Gods
Plaque of Tepok
War Drum of Xahutec

Saurus Scar-Veteran 116
Great Weapon
Charm of the Jaguar Warrior

Saurus Warriors x 18 234
Spears
Musician
Standard Bearer
Champion

Skink Skirmishers x 10 70

Skink Skirmishers x 10 70

Temple Guard x 16 302
Musician
Standard Bearer
Warbanner

Terradons x 3 90

Kroxigors x 3 165


Total Points Cost - 2237

So I'm still a bit under 2250, so any thoughts on what I can add or anything you can suggest to improve the list would be greatly appreciated =D

Take out the Kroxigors and Scar veteran and put in another unit of 18 Saurus, Lizards are a defensive army and for that reason you want your hilarious "charge me and see what happens" blocks of infantry. Also only take Standards with Saurus, the other two are not much needed. Other than that looks good

Thanks for the reply =D

Well if they're a more defensive army all in all, would I be best suited to do what you've suggested, and drop out the Skink Chief for another Priest on another Engine of the Gods?
That's what I had originally written, but was trying to add some combatyness to the list =D

If you're a new player, it is going to be very difficult to line up charges with the stegadon warspear. Another Engine of the Gods might be overkill, but it certainly works. Look into Cold One Cavalry if you haven't already, they come in the battalion box and are very good at what they do. Take another unit of Saurus like Zeekill said. I think the 3 Kroxigors may work, but you can bulk points and save a couple bucks if you take two kroxigors and put them in with skinks either in one big unit or two small units.

Okies, shuffled it around a bit, came up with this. Problem of course now is that I'm 43 points over =(

Any thoughts?

I could drop one unit of Saurus, beef up the other, and add some more of another unit, maybe a Salamander or something?
Any comments would be appreciated =D

Or the other option is the following - 9 Points under instead.

Thoughts?

Slann 410

Cupped Hands
Bane Head
Battle Standard Bearer

Skink Priest 380

Dispel Scroll

Skink Priest 400

Terradons x 3 90

Cold One Calvary x 5 187

So that's another option - Though would it be worth it to swap out the dispel scroll on the Skink Priest for something like the rod of the storm?

Any thoughts welcome =D
