So, the other day I was playing an oppenent that used the new codex. And I had no idea how to counter the skinks with High Elves. Is there any advice that anyone give me on how to counter these nuicanses.
Which skinks the ranked ones the skirmishers or the ones with kroxigors in them. Combating skinks isn't that hard just panic with shooting and terror bomb. Attacking without numbering phoenix guard will help.
Daemonic cheese-how? Well, you would need to start with daemonic milk, i guess...
I have found our archers to actually be pretty good against skinks. Poison hurts, but our high BS and longer range is very nice for thinning them down and causing panic. If they do charge you can hit them first. The key with skinks is get rid of them without devoting too many of you good troops (ie use the 2 base core archer units). The real problems come from the 2-4 stegadons and 2 or more Engine of the Gods they can roll out. Even HE leadership can't combat a -3 or -4 break test consistently. Their cold-blooded rule makes it even harder to break them.
IMO lizzys are very tough for HE, at least with the new book they are.
Just through the light cavalry within either put yourself within charge range or within 9" so he doesn't get stand and shoot and hopefully he won't cause panic from shooting, then they'll get wiped out on the charge even if you have only 3 guys, tends to have worked with my light cav, even goblin wolf riders.
