Hi! I am considering collecting Lizardmen, I have got the army book, and I may buy battalion, saurus, slann and temple guard. Should I swap out a TG for a stegadon? Thoughts would be helpful, on models/list. Anyway:

Focus of Mastery - Lore of Life
Focused Rumination
Dispel Scroll

Scar Verteran
Great Weapon
Armour of Destiny

12 Skink Skirmishers
15 Saurus
Full Command
Standard of Discipline

19 Saurus - Scar Veteran goes here
Full Command
Jaguar Standard

20 Temple Guard
Razor Standard
Revered Guardian

1498 points

Please reply,

That looks like a solid starter army. How do the saurus have the jaguar standard though?

Should I swap out 5 TG? What could add a nice little unit? I will play agianst WoC, so Lore of Life or Metal....

Also, you have standard of discipline in your skinks. They can't have that either.

Drop 2 skirmishers for an extra saurus, And drop the spears. Put them 7x3 with the veteran.

I think razor standard is s bit overkill. Prefer BoeF on the TG.

Unfortunately Saurus, and Skinks (by themselves) can not take a magical standard.

The Scar Veteran as you set him up is an optimal configuration for a BSB, however, since you have a Slann anyways, it is much better on him.

As such, removing the two standards, you should use the points to buy full command for the temple guard. Also possibly swapping the razor banner for the flaming banner, and using any extra points you may have to increase the spear saurus size to at least 18.

Thanks. So should I buy 3X Saurus, 2X Tg, and slaan? I have 18 skinks already :)

try buy the battle force. cavalry are useless, but 20 saurus is nice, and so is the temple guard. plus extra skinks. you could try the cavalry, but there pretty terrible. the cavalry are pretty much free in the battalion, but your other list does look solid. maybe drop the armour of destiny down to the 5++ one and get a potion or something. just an idea.

Buy 1 battalion, 1 saurus and 1 temple guard.

That way you will get your 20 (10+10) temple guard, and 36 (20+16) saurus being enough to do 2 units of 18, which should suffice in a 1500pt game. Having extra skinks and cavalry doesn't hurt either for down the road.

cavalry aren't great. but they are quite helpful, just very high points, but not that great in combat with 2 str 5 attacks each. small 5 man unit for flanking may help though, and a 2+ is always nice, now also with a parry save if you can get one while mouted(i dont know this, lost my rulebook)
