    First 2250 list

    My first attempt at a list using the new rules. Lets see what you think.

    Lord:
    Oldblood- LA, Enchanted Shield, Blade of Realities, Cold One

    Heroes:
    Scar-Vet- GW, Shield, Hide of the Cold Ones

    Skink Priest- Level 2, EotG, Dispel Scroll, Diadem of Power

    Skink Priest- Level 2, Dispel Scroll, Plaque of Tepok

    Core:
    Saurus Warriors-17(spears) w/SB & Champ
    Saurus Warriors-18(spears)
    Skink Skirmishers-10
    Skink Skirmishers-10

    Special:
    Terradon Riders-3
    Saurus Cavalry-5 w/Musician & Champ
    Kroxigors-4

    Rare:
    Sallamander-1
    Sallamander-1

    The oldblood will go with the cavalry of course. The scar-vet in the naked unit of warriors, the EotG in the other. The skink priest on foot can hide in one of the skirmish units. Well there it is. Rip away.

    I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.

    Scar-vet- gw, shield, hide of the cold ones a bsb would be really handy here. You could put him in with the saurus for a killer combat res unit.

    skink priest- dispel scroll, plaque of tepoki think this is overkill, or unneeded. You already have defense (unless you play against super magic armies but still)all this guy brings to the table is 1pd 1dd and knowledge of an extra spell he can only throw 2 dice at. I'd think about dropping him for more troops.

    core:
    Saurus warriors-17(spears) w/sb & champ
    saurus warriors-18(spears)
    skink skirmishers-10

    special:
    Terradon riders-3
    saurus cavalry-5 w/musician & champ
    kroxigors-4

    rare:i really view these as a one use only kind of thing, situational only. I also really don't see you doing more than 1-2 wounds tops after rolling to hit twice(make the template move and rolling partials) i think you'd have just as much luck using 2more skinkskirmish units and saving yourself 10pts

    after some thought I would like to modify my comments and explain why.

    Blade of Realities can be good if you can get it into combat with what you want (ie. monsters, lower characters, etc) I'm not sure you need the enchanted shield though. with the cold one and light armor, you already have a 1+, I guess you were shooting for the -1 armorsave?

    I'd still really like to see some more skirmishers or cheap skink units to misdirect the enemy, shoot poison and cause havoc like they are supposed to. Otherwise a really fast army would be able to zip around your flanks without speed bumps.

    Salamanders can be great against large units (the only thing they're good at hitting) but I still worry about them being able to get there intact since their range is so poor.

    I still think a bsb would be really effective and I'd think about dropping the champion on the cold ones and maybe one krox, or you could drop that level 1 to get some more skinks.

    I do like how you avoided the monster mash (if you start putting in monsters, you run out of troops too fast imo)

    Thanks for the comments buckeroo. And yes, I was going for the -1 AS. I figured without a ward save, I at least want the best armour save I can get.

    As for changes, how about dropping one of the salamanders for the BSB upgrade on the scar-vet, and a unit of 10 skinks. I am not sold on the new salamanders either, but on paper they look better than the razordons for sure. I have made some other lists where I have no rares at all.

    Oh, and I got the plaque of tepok and diadem on the wrong characters. The EotG's priest should have the plaque.

    If I dropped the other salamander, I could get another unit of skinks and maybe add a bit to the saurus or I could pick up a banner for the cavalry.

    Still playing around with the list.
