I was reading 'bout the slan and how they were supposed to be the old ones followers and it says they retired from galactic whatnot. The thing is it also says on the thing lexicanum that they kept their advanced tech.
Don't scream at me but I was thinking that it woud be cool to make a little army of them for kicks. I was thinking of going along the lines of a Space Marine list. One and a half tac squads with one box of saurauses, pretty good .
The fluff would be that they were just minding their own bussiness when some invaders came down from space... obviously they have to defend themselves.
DDW, have a look at the fluff section in the 4th ed rule book, thers a teasing picture there of a frog alien called the Slaanii. I recon theres all the excuse you need to make a 40k army out of lizardmen.
Anyway its generally held that the Warhammer world is infact a planet with in the Imperium that has been totally cut off by warpstorms for like forever and that Sigmar is one of the 2 missing primarchs.
As for modelling ideas I recon go for the same imagry as the WHFB lizadmen (aztec, incan, myan) but make it more futuristic. Have a look at the mordheim Amazons, they use pistols and Sun Staves, which are actually Old One tech that they found in the jungle. They would look very cool on a bunch or armourd saurus.
For any vehichles you might have think of the classic Eldar Exodites a.k.a DINO RIDERS!
I could go on for ages on this idea but if its not what your looking for let me know. If you like where I'm going with this I've got plenty more in my monkey brain
But with the SM rules they need some conversations.
My idea was a not slann but a descendant (I think there are planets with ferral or half-ferral lizard folks) with the rules of the Daemons. Or Tau.
But i think they are ok with any existing codex.
I don't see any pistols there?
@ Fremen- I always thought that the orks were born with a fungus on their skin to protect it from drying out or something like that... I'm not sure though, because you don't see female orks in either version of the game.
I'm not sure what I'm going to use for weapons, one of the reasons is I have no Idea weather they should be kinda eldar-like (because they were meant to have given the eldar the designs for their tech. The other option is throw a buntch of different weapons together to make something totally new...
