So, after several games against the new Lizardmen my current list is not cutting it. Therefore I have gone for a completly different list to try and get more success against them and other armies to!
The list I was playing before revolved around an archmage.
Anyhow, the proposed list:
Prince+A of C+vambraces+amulet of light+halberd+star dragom=621
Mage+sigil of asur=140
6 Dragon Princes+FC+banner of arcane protect=255
So what do you guys think? Areas for improvement?
The star dragon lord choice seems to be the way for us to go. Lizard men also have a lot of magic and you are weak there. Banner of sorcery would be nice but it would cost you in points. Give it a shoot an see how it works out. I went another way Teclis, dragon mage and a 2nd lvl mage, with 3RBTs and archers.
I'm not trying to match the lizards magic potential here, but instead try and block it for a fews turns.
Hopefully most things will in combat by then and so I won't suffer as badly from magic. Also if he doesn't take a slann it still gives me a solid fighting platform on which to work.
An amulet of fire could help your prince with some mr
That is a good plan to try to shut his magic down for a couple of turns. If you can do that you should be able to get into combat and that further reduces his magic. Especially if you can eliminate a magic user or two. With you army list you should be able to pull that off. The amulet of light gives the prince and dragon magical attacks but the amulet of fire gives some MR. Those two choices are just a trade off. Most armies do not have units which need magical attacks. There is a banner of arcane protection which a core unit can take which gives MR. Just a couple of things to thank about.
You have no static combat resolution at all. For a combat focused army this is very odd in my opinion. I would drop one of the seagaurd and sword masters for a block of 20 or so spears with command. I know they won't hurt the lizards with their high toughness and very good armour, but they will add ranks so that when you flank with your dragon you get a huge advantage.
You have clearly been on the wrong side of some magical hidings because that is a lot of magic defence you have, but probably worth it against the lizardmen.
Finally, I know that the Lion Chariot is cool but how I can't see how it is worth the extra points, I would drop it down to a Tiranoc Chariot, to bulk numbers elsewhere.
I think you would also benefit from a BSB perhaps on a horse in the Dragon Princes but then you need to lose a mage and you may not want to do that.
Please keep us informed about how you do? Then some of us will say I told you so and some of us will say that is not what I meant.
bottom line is that it is your army and you have to have fun playing it.
