Saturday I played a good friend who had a very good Lizardmen army (which was one of the best fantasy armies in my store). Previously I slaughtered his Ogres, so he wanted a rematch. So here it goes
2 dispell scrolls
pageant of shrikes
helm of the hunt
x2 11 glade guard
banner of spring tide
6 wild riders
banner of dwindling
jaguar of the old blood
5+ ward save
2 skink priests
diadem of power
1 dispell scroll
2x 16 or so skinks
6 chameleon skinks
Deployment- WE- I had a glade guard unit on a left hill and one on the right. Wild Riders on the left flank, Treeman and spellsinger in the middle behind some trees. In front of the right glade guard unit was the dryads and the wraith was on the left flank in some trees'
Lizards- skinks in front of kroxigors behind a hill across from wr, saurus with the hero in the middle, open. chameleons in the trees right in front of the treeman (trying to poison him). skinks deep in woods on right, salamanders and terradons behind the trees. Skink priests were in trees on opposite sides.
Spells- Branchwraith gets tree singing, spellsinger got the hidden path and call of rthe hunt, his priests got 2 second signs, comet of cassandra, and an annoying 12 inch thing.
WE turn 1- move- Wild riders moved up (not as far as i should have) as did the dryads and and treeman (who turned to face the skinks
magic- i casted the hiden path on treeman and the fury of the forest was dispelled
shoot- the 2 glade guard units brought down 2 saurus warriors. Treeman killed all 6 chameleons with strangle roots.

magic- priest casts second sign, I scroll the comet, everything else was dispelled.
WE turn 2

magic- second sign
assault- dryads are good and they wound another lizardmen
Wood ELves- all I had left was a treeman (unwounded) and 3 dryads
Lizardmen- he had his heroes and 1 salamander and 3 handlers
Lizardmen win by about 185 VP achieving a minor victory, my opponent suggested putting the branchwraith with the dryads so I will make sure to do so next time, so what do you think
Wild Rider characters cannot take a Shield, nor can they, under the current rules (and as ridiculous as it seems) take the Helm of the Hunt.
If he put his Skink Priests in forests, be sure to punish him of that. Take a mage with Calaingor's Stave and Tree Singing. His magic defense cannot possibly contain ALL the Treesinging the Branchwraith and the mage throw forth, and so that's goodbye to at least one of his Priests. The Stave is a nice tool to cause your opponent to avoid forests like the plague
Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD
thanks for the comment, I actually meant to say his priests were behind trees. I had no idea wr characters cant have the helm of the hiunt, thanks.
