I've played several games against the Lizardmen recently, and lost every single one. I know i can put a hurting on him if I can get in CC, but I never make it that far. His magic slaughters me. He has so much of it, I cant stop it all. By the time I make it near his army, all have I left is a third of my orignal army. Can anybody help me?

Take more magic. I'm assuming his magic is mainly a Slaan, who should be in Temple Guard, so you can't just mage-hunt him. Dispel Scrolls, Dispel Dice, kill the Skink priests so that you at least cut down on how far he can see.
If he doesn't have a Slaan.... then you shouldn't be having that much trouble.
And you might want to rethink your 'I can take him in Close Combat'. These are Saurus, unless he's a moron.
Bow down! Or I will unleash my zoinky army of surly crack babies! End this deception! I know you're hiding Martians in your head! Gimme them Martians! I am going to put butter on them! Martians! Grrr! Cease your barky noise making! Join my legions of darkness! My frowny face empire! I annoint thee! I do not copulate with Twinkies! Yaargh!
Can't say I've ever played LM but mabey if you get some Shades or an Assassin to start in close and get into CC with the Slann or whatever for a turn or two, then your forces can get into charging distance unopposed(magic wise).
Does that help?
It's fantastically exciting in a really boring way.
Intelligence is but a light in the darkness of life.
My mind is like a vacuum cleaner, it sucks up all of the little crap, but the big stuff has to be picked up by hand.
Can you tell us what your enemy have? We can give you better tips if you do.
well my advice is to get a few scroll caddies to stop his magic until u get up close...Originally posted by noobman@Aug 20 2004, 04:59

or u can try to distract him...OR u can get some reapers to soften him up a bit....
Hope that helps
well about the idea of attacking him with assassins or shades,. well... the slann can go in a unit of saurus and they can surround him (like real bodyguards) so they fight while as he is a large target he can shoot out of combat and over their heads.
Although since he is a large target u can choose to target him instead of his unit.. so load up on big bolts and blast him off his floating chair.
A good plan is charge him witha ranked infantry unit at the same time as a chariot and use kills from the chariot and ranks from the infatry to kicks his scaly butt.
Also only dispel spells that matter, unless he has little dice left then just stop em, which lore do they take, and is a slann +2 skink priests? 3? what generation is it? cos if its 2 then the army will be pretty small.

Yea tell us if its a problem with a slaan or skink priests. If its skink priests he must be doing the ultra cheesy (but extremely effective) "hide your skinks so no one can see them and blast the crap outta your enemy with heavens magic" but if its a slaan then like others have said hit him with big bolts cuase you get + one to hit so you pretty much no matter what hitting on 3+(i doubt hes going to get within 24 inches of you) and you can wound him somewhat easily 3 or 4+ i think(whats there toughness?) and do d3 wounds, you get 2 or 3 woundings on him thats gonna kill it. If hes skinking you and hiding get a lord on dragon or beastmaster on manticore and hunt his skinks down and kill them becuase they are really weak.I love that his own body guard kill him : )well about the idea of attacking him with assassins or shades,. well... the slann can go in a unit of saurus and they can surround him (like real bodyguards) so they fight while as he is a large target he can shoot out of combat and over their heads.
