Well, I'm new to WFB, and after looking through all the armies, and weighing pros and cons, I decided I wanted to go with Lizardmen as my army. Since I'm BRAND new to wargaming in general, I figured I'd start with a 1000 point list, and once I got that done, I'd expand to 1500. I still want to be semi-competitive while having fun. My goal is to get an EotG in my 1k list. I know it's a big chunk of points, but I think it's just too cool not to have. Anyway, here's my list(s).
Saurus Scar-Veteran, with piranha blade, light armour, enchanted shield, cold one mount - 160
Skink Priest, level 2, EotG, War Drums of Xahutec, Plaque of Tepok - 435
16x Saurus Warriors, with Spears, Champion, and Banner (Huanchi's Blessed Totem) - 241
10x Skink Skirmishers - 70
3x Terradon Riders - 90
Total: 996 points
My plan is to join the Scar-Veteran with the Warriors, use the skinks as a shield, and go offensive with the Stegadon. The Terradons are there for harrassment or for artillery destruction. The Huanchi's Blessed Totem is a point sink, I had some leftover points, and it was either that or go to a unit of 14 skirmishers.
EDIT: As another question, am I better off swapping the items on the engine for a dispel scroll or two? I'm not sure how the metagame is at the local shop, and how much magic I'm likely to face.
Thanks for any and all criticism. I'm brand new, so please explain why you would make changes, or why something won't work the way I think it should.

I think I'll go with your suggestion for the scar-vet, and if I do run into a problem with higher-wound units, I can always switch back.
Yeah, the scar-vet is meant to go with the warriors in most cases. I don't know how I missed that they couldn't get a magical banner, no idea what I was looking at.
As for switching the skirmishers into two units of ranked skinks, I haven't heard many good things about the ranked skinks. Is there something I'm overlooking with them? I'd almost rather have the extra skirmishers than the ranked skinks.
