View Full Version : Starting up 2250 Lizzies, a few concerns with my list...

Finally going to start up my lizardmen army after months of my carnosaur looking rather lonely on my shelf. Currently I only own my general, the saurus, skinks, cavalry, and the razordon so I am only committed to those units. But I am a little concerned about the krox. They are not as powerful as they used to be and im worried their points could be better spent else where, but I don't know what I would replace them with. I have toyed around with changing the anvil temple guard out for just saurus, but its not that many points for a lot less survivability, with my BSB I feel it is a VERY solid anvil...as long as it sees combat.

My regular opponents are all doing new armies. One is doing new skaven, not sure what his list is but I know the bell is in it. Another is starting new beastmen next month (currently running a wood elf list with a dragon). And a third is undecided, but will prob go with either tomb kings or orcs.

I don't want to make a tailored list, but those will be my main opponents.

Drop the Kroxigors, Salamander, Razordon and Temple Guard for more Warriors :)

If you're going to take a non-Slann list, you want another EotG in there.

My problem with more warriors is that they are too slow and not that maneuverable, if you can get them into combat they own, but that's a pretty big if sometimes. Hence why I have krox which are faster.

I know this list is rather thin on magic but I do have an alternate list that uses a Slann for when I feel the need to melt some faces. If I go to two steggys I also feel that my army would be tiny and quickly surrounded. Esp with no flank deterrents like razordons.

I am open to loosing the krox, but I just don't feel like warriors will be a better option esp when I already have a group. Or maybe I am just not seeing them right....

take another stegadon instead of the krox and temp guard

I would take out the krox and beef up the saures and TG, if you took the saures up to 18 and the TG up to 17 i think that would work better as having a stronger anvil to lock your army in place. :D

I would also replace the razordon with another sallie and have one on each flank burninating things as LoNC says, the Carnie and Cav are a good hammer to your Saures anvil, at least thats how i use them :p
