    Reptilemen Army List for KoW

    Hey all,

    I put together an army list for Reptilemen! It translates the GW units, but not so much all the GW concepts. My special rules aren't related the the GW special rules... I like mine better

    I've done handfuls of playtesting, but would appreciate any feedback!

    The first thing that I notice is that you made Skinks slow and Saurus fast, instead of the other way around. You also gave Skink hordes the highest Nerve in the game so far. Apart from that, you need to fix the format, removing the 5+ ranged stat for the Saurus since they don't have ranged weapons, and standardise the chameleon skin rule.

    While I haven't playtested it, making the Skinks incapable of wielding both javelins and shields at the same time seems like a poor decision. It raises the question of what combat role you have in mind for them, other than dying en masse.

    And Kroxigors should be a lot better than 4+ Defense. Elf bowmen get 4+ defense, and they're not a small unit of T4, W3, 4+ save killing machines.

    Something I'd want to do is let Skinks attack through Kroxigor units. It would let you mimic the Skink + Kroxigor unit, and give the Kroxigors a unique role as living mantlets to protect the Skinks behind them.

    I liked it I need to pay it yet. I would change the names a little some of them don't roll off the tongue easily!

    We've also been using a very similar list that we'd modified from one I found somewhere else online (on Beasts of War I think it was). I've attached it here for comparison but I think they are probably pretty close, certainly in terms of what units we make available. Our stats vary somewhat. Perhaps we should take the best of both and see what we end up with!?

    I can't find the original list/poster on beasts of war or I'd provide the link and credit them properly. Will keep digging.

    Found it... the list I based my version off came from wolflord68 here: http://www.beastsofwar.com/groups/ki...-have-out-yet/

    @mattjgilbert; this is a good list too. I think on balance I prefer the BoW version to yours Neldoreth but again I have yet to play either so grain of salt.

    Re: Reptilemen Army List for KoW

    Yeah, my list is built on a different paradigm than the BoW list.

    My list is based on the GW figures, but built from the ground-up using Kings of War content and profiles. The BoW list is a direct translation of the Lizardmen Army book into KoW terms... It has a lot more fiddly rules, extra profiles... etc. etc. Since I got into KoW to avoid the fiddly rules of WFB, I decided not to go that route. But I would imagine it's a lot easier for Lizardmen players to pick up since they are familiar with the concepts.

    Thanks for the feedback though! I've updated my list! It's available at the same link as above Reptilemen Army List. I've fixed some of the typos and idiosyncratic stats/rules. Also, I simplified some of the names as well.

    Thanks
