Welcome to Librarium Online!
This friday is my first tourney with WFB and Lizardmen and I need some advice on tactics and to possible rearrange the very limited amount of units I have. So far all I have is the battalion box, stegadon and a skink priest. So Ive come up with this very basic list.
Skink Priest 435 points
Ancient Stegadon with Engine of the Gods, Level 2 Upgrade, Plaque of Tepok, War Drum of Xahutec
Skink Priest 150 points
Level 2 Upgrade, Dispel Scroll, Rod of the Storm
Saurus Scar-Veteran 155 points
Scaly Skin, Light Armour, Cold One, Piranha Blade, Enchanted Shield
20x Saurus Warriors 270 points
Spears, Full Command
10x Skink Skirmishers 70 points
5x Saurus Cavalry 205 points
Musician, Standard Bearer
10x Temple Guard 195 points
This was the best I could do with what I have and any tips on strategies I could employ and tactics would be much appreciated. As of right now I'll put my lone priest with the skinks and my scar vet with the coldone riders and use those two units to hopefully flank an opponent when the rest of my army moves up with the stegadon under the ward protection. I believe I might be up against several dwarfs but the opponent lineup is pretty good representation of all armies.
Thanks everyone for your time.
Looks like a fine list for what you have. With the few extra points you have, you should have a couple more skinks. Make one a musician and throw both of them in the skink unit.
As for tactics, you whole army is basically there to protect your stegadon. Move around and get burning alignments off as often as possible. Use the temple guard and saurus to protect his flanks early on until you get behind enemy lines. You also have decent magic for 1500 points, so you should be able to do some damage that way.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
i do not like the limited amount of saurus that u have in this army i really do think u should do something about it because this is limiting the armies potential and wat it is based around
Hey man I like the list just a few changes in my mind.
Make scarvet a BSB (rocks with lizzys) I always find whats good to do is place him in the saurus block makes them cause fear which is really handy. You do suffer from the stupidity but on 3 dice you should be fine most of the time. Also means he can rush out and take down any lone enemy you see fit.
Saurus cav i feel dont really need the mus as rolling 8 on 3 dice should be fineDid you mean turn the skinks into a block sirkently cause i am fairly sure you cant get a mus for the skirmysLooks like a fine list for what you have. With the few extra points you have, you should have a couple more skinks. Make one a musician and throw both of them in the skink unit.
I understand you are limited on models but if you can manage to get hold of some drop the temple guard as they are useless without a slann.
Thats just my 2 cents
all the best
