I don't play Warhammer Fantasy, but I think Lizardmen are just plain kewl. Although expanding the Tau hegemony seems to be the GW approach to more diversity in 40k, I think human auxilliaries and the vespid just suck. They should make space lizardmen as an independent race. Are Tyranids what GW thinks space lizardmen should be? In spirit and fluff thay are wholly different, and from the little I have read in WHFB battle reports, I think the races function very differently in terms of game mechanics. What do you think Lizardmen would be like in 40k...your thoughts?
They would probably be a cross between the Kroot and the Tyranids IMO
My 40K Armies:
- Thousand Sons
- Mordian Imperial Guard
- Dark Eldar
My Fantasy Armies:
- Lhamian Vampire Counts
From purely a fluff point of view a sort of space lizardmen exist in 40k in the shape of the eldar and orks (bear with me)
As the Slann are the servants of the old ones (who are the same in fantasy and 40k- please correct if i'm wrong) and the lizardmen are the servants of the slann, in essence the lizardmen are the armed forces of the old ones. So as the old one created the earliest decendants of the eldar and orks one could argue that the eldar and orks (especially if the were combined) are the 40k equivilant of the Lizardmen.
Feel free to rip this to shreds if its utterly wrong.
I think thats correct outsider. Personally i believe the Slann/obscence magic power of the lizardmen descended into Eldar, and the brutish Kroxigor/Saurus approach into the Orks we know and love. Perhaps skins as guardians? However Eldar are space elves, so meh o_O
Some members (me included when I can be bothered - which is rare ) are actually making a lizardmen codex for 40k, you should check it out. Heres a link
yeah i heard about that, still have my doubts as to how well it's going to go, though....:sleep:
i personally hate lizardmen and think they should of been abolished a long time ago, silly green scaly pieces of crap
Since there already are orcs in fantasy it would be easier to claim that Orcs are Orks. Cause what is Orcs if Lizardmen is Orks?Originally Posted by The_Outsider
The Eldar strike me more as elves(more correctly Dark Elves and High Elves into one).
the closest thing to Lizardmen would be Tyranids(hive mind = the slaan).
or wait, strike that... the Kroot is. just give them more toughness and there you go.
