I'm looking to get a bsb for my lizardmen army but can only characters have a bsb. In the army book it say only my scar vet, skink chief, and slann can have it. Is that correct?

Most lizards have their Slaan as BSB. Surrounded by temple guard and with all his buffs and protections etc. he's pretty safe.

Safe unless the unit breaks in close combat and runs, auto killing the Slann BSB who is usually only lvl4 caster LM player has and also the General. Does not happen often but when it does it Sucks-Big-Time!

Yea, if it gets to that point, you are screwed anyway.

Which is tough, considering you're stubborn Ld9 w/ reroll and Coldblooded. Still possible, although its about as safe as you can get as a bsb.

Um, isn't there a rule that bsb can't be army general???

Slann are "special".

Yes they also have a couple other rule breakers. When put into a unit of temple guard they go in the second row and can still cast, and as the BSB they may have a magic standard as well as other magic items. They are also base 275 pts so you can't complain too much. If the lizardmen are semi-forced to put their eggs in one basket they deserve a bit extra. It's not like they have the stats of a greater demon.
