View Full Version : Skink Horde

21-01-2011, 19:24
Was thinking about a horde of skinks (unit of 40)

Cheap, fast moving, lots of poisoned javelins, stand and shoot, reasonably good initiative and lots of poisoned attacks in close combat.

Might even be able to give them +4 toughness on the odd occasion (toughness 6 skinks!)

What do we think?

Cast Mindrazor on them is what i think. How much does a skink cost? ;)

Anything is good with mindrazor... but I wouldn't count on it.

Skinks are weak, but if you want to make a fighting unit out of them then add a few krox and use the skinks for ranks.

why are the close combat attacks poison?

CC attacks are not poisonous. Only ranged attacks, or those provided by Venom of the Firefly Frog enchanted item, are poisoned. WS2 T2 is a drag for these guys and they only serve one purpose, IMO. Ablative armor for the Krox in the second rank. I use 2 units of 28 skinks and 3 krox with musician and standard. 6,3,6,6,6,4 line up. They work wonders on flanks and vs. small knights, monsters and monsterous cav. Tons of skinks die but the three krox remain untouched until less than 4 skinks remain.
