View Full Version : Building a Lizardmen army

18-08-2010, 01:49
Hello all,

You must be getting crazy by my questions by now :)
Not sure if this should go under army lists instead.
But as there isnt a list yet i put it under general for the moment.

In 2 weeks i have my seccond game (ever) of warhammer fantasy.
Im playing by 8e rules all the way.

I was wondering how i could set up a decent 1000 point lizardmen army.
Atm i only have the batteljon box of LM so im lookin for the cheapest way to get a 1k army asap to have some fun with.

I was thinking:
- atleast 1 x 20 saurus wariors, spears, mus,stand.
- 12ish skinks with blowpipes
- 1 scar vet, GW,Light armor, shield, dawnstone, cold one
- cold one cav (meh)
- temple guard (?)

The rest of the list i could realy use some help on.
It seems to me my army has way to less units to keep its head above the water.
I have 8 cold one cav from the box. im told they are no good.
But they will have to do for now.

So can some lizardmen gurus help me put a list together for a 1k game?
- should i get a skink priest --> in which unit ?
- should i drop the temple guard until there is a slan to go with them. what should i bring instead.
- how many salamanders?
- what do i trade for the cold one cav. a steg?
- are the birds worth taking?
- at which point can i add in a slan?
- how do i deal with warmachines?

thanks in advance.

An ideal Lizardmen army would probably be this

Scar Vet
2* 20 Saurus with spears
3*10 Skink Skrimishers
2 Salamanders
see if you can fit in a Steg

For 1k at least one salamander. Two blocks of spear saurus would be useful. Two skink skirmisher units. Scarvet as a general and a skink priest. This should fit in 1k I think. Give the characters some gear if you have spare points.

Get 2 battalions, 1 slan 3 salamanders and you're good to go for 2.500 maybe. Kit bash some and u got saurus heroes.

Maybe a steg and you're done

Also I personally never run Temple Guard without a Slaan.

For 1000ps i run

x1 Scar Vet, Armour of Denstiny & Great Weapon
x20 Saurus Warriors with Spears
x19 Saurus Warrior with Spears (Scar Vet with these)
2 Units of 6 Chameleon Skinks
x2 Salamanders

This leaves about 50pts to use for further items etc
