Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey, (im kinda new to this so bear with me plz lol)
I need a little help on how to beat my friends Lizard Men army. i just recently bought a HE army and everytime we play he sets up his 2 units of skinks infront of his 2 units of saurus and his croxigors so by the time i shoot down all of his skinks he charges me with his saurus and flanks me with his croxigors. He also uses 2 mages which he keeps next to his skinks so i cant target them directly. We play with only 1000pt armies too.
1xlord(i use as a commander)-70
1xmages(i have an extra 1)-95
1x reapeater bolt thrower-100
Any tactics or advice would be great.Thx.
BOOM! Hur hur hur...
try swapping the archers for another unit of spear men, and maybe find a way to squeze another bolt thrower in
bolt throwers are way better then archers, esp for 100 pts
if you can cast it flames of the phinox would be a fast way to take out those skinks, since it hits everyone in the unit (but i doupt you'll get many spells of if hes using 2 skink priests)
focus your bolt thrower (s) on one unit of skinks, and then on the sarus behind that unit,
when you go into HTH encourage him to charge one of your big units of spearmen (so you get your 10-15 attacks as appose to the 5 you would get for chargnig him, then flank charge him with the swordmasters (or silver helms) thay will rip through, having better Ws S and I so hopefully you should win combat also concidering the size of his army he probabley dosent have a sarus hero, this is very good news, cos you dont have to worry about having good magical armour on your comander and can insted focus on kick ass weapons
try a hero on an eagle maybe, and hunt down the mages? or a hero with foebane and try taking on those croxigor (not on his own obviousley) in a white dwarf recently thay had a cool elf hero with foebane and the shadow armour has anyone seen his rules anywhere else or know which white dwarf it was ?
his army seems excessavly big for 1000pts
and finaly use more terain thay way you can pick your fights better, and try to bottle neck his forces so you can fight and destroy the skinks with the saraus stuck behind them untill your ready for them and have destroyed the skinks
when ever i played against a friend lizardmen i owned, (but he wasent very good) so i dont really know what to sugest i never found them dificult.
high elves 1/1/0 (since i sign on to LO, but countless battles before that)
building a new IG army as we speek its about 500pts sofar
A couple of quick suggestions. Try and panic his skinks with scouting archers, (shadow warriors). They only have Ld5, and even with cold blooded they should go quite quick.
Kroxigors could be targeted by a character with the reaver bow on a eagle. Fly him out to the side and smack them with arrows till they panic.
A unit of 5 silver helms with full armour on the charge could smash through his skinks first, then directly overrun into his saurus flanks? Bear in mind that if you are out of his shooting range (max 12") he can't stand and shoot!!

yea im currently making a new order over games workshop and i was already getting some shadow warriors so now ill probably throw in a bolt thrower and maybe another unit of spearmen and see if i can tweak my army a lil bit. He also uses a scarvet with a great weapon light armor and venom of flying frog for his saurus hero. Im also going to try that hero on the eagle with the reaver bow and hope he doesnt target him with one of his mages that he keeps next to them.
BOOM! Hur hur hur...
