    3k list after some playtesting

    Hi all. I am a relatively new Lizardmen player and currently have about 1500 points, mostly from the army box. I have played several games with them against Skaven, TK, Orcs, and Empire and have been determining how I want my army to evolve. I have developed a 3k list for myself so I know what to buy. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Lord:
    Oldblood, The Blade of Realities, Enchanted Shield, Light Armor, Cold One
    Slann-Mage Priest, The Focused Rumination, The Becoming Cognition, BSB (Sun Standard of Chotec), Dispel Scroll, Plaque of Tepok

    Hero:
    Scar-Vet, Burning Blade, Shield of Mirrored Pool, Light Armor
    Skink Priest, Level 2, Engine of the Gods, Dispel Scroll
    Skink Chief, Stegadon, Stegadon War Spear


    Core:
    18 Saurus Warriors, Spears, Standard, Musician

    18 Saurus Warriors, Spears, Standard, Musician
    10 Skink skirmishers
    10 Skink skirmishers

    Special:
    5 Cold One Cavalry, Standard, Musician, Huanchis Blessed Totem
    16 Temple Guard, Standard, Musician, War Banner

    3 Terradons

    Rare:
    2 Salamanders





    Total = 2996

    Like this setup.
    Slann-Mage Priest, The Focused Rumination, The Becoming Cognition, BSB (Sun Standard of Chotec), Dispel Scroll, Plaque of Tepok
    I would give the standard to the unit standard bearer. Just makes him worth too many points.

    Not a fan of the shield. Would rather have the maiming shield.
    Skink Priest, Level 2, Engine of the Gods, Dispel Scroll
    Wardrums work great on engines.
    Skink Chief, Stegadon, Stegadon War Spear

    Think I would drop one unit of saurus. 2 blocks of troops is enough for me.
    Special:

    5 Cold One Cavalry, Standard, Musician, Huanchis Blessed Totem
    You would want a champ in this unit.
    16 Temple Guard, Standard, Musician, War Banner
    As I said above, give these guys and sun standard and drop the warbanner, they don't really need it.
    3 Terradons

    Rare

    2 Salamanders
    I would use the extra points for some more skinks. You may even consider another skink priest to really dominate the magic phase. If you need more points, the saurus command models are extraneous, and the temple guard could lose a member or two.

    Good luck,

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

    Thank you for the advice. I will make the change to my standards. The reason I like the mirror shield is because my main opponent is skaven who uses 3 warlocks, a grey seer, and ikrit claw in his 3k list. Also I find that my one lizardmen unit is usually swamped by at least three 25+ strong units. He also uses 3 warp-lightening cannons, a sceaming bell, and 2 ratling guns which chew through skinks. Do you think a unit of TG and saurus will be enough? Thats why I wanted the extra saurus unit. Thanks.

    I would probably get the plaque of dominion for the temple guard standard bearer in that case. The reason I don't like the mirrored shield is once he knows you have it, he won't target magic missiles at that unit. He will just concentrate a bunch of firepower on it.

    He shouldn't be hitting you with 3 units at once. Make sure to draw some of them off with skinks. Also, lore of darkness works well with salamanders. If he is using that much magic, I would probably try to get another priest in with a couple of scrolls.

    Good luck,
