    Defenders of the Temple-City of Ixtl-Coatl - 2000 point Tournament Lizzies sans Slaan

    The lizardmen have always appealed to me. It was the first army I used (in the old 5th Edition boxed set), I loved the Mesoamerican imagery, and I mean...come on...DINOSAURS

    I don't like the models for the saurus though - I think they look much too skinny and snake-like. I love the Stegadon model, though from the side it looks a bit chubby it's a fantastically multi-leveled sculpt and looks like it just wants to ruin everyone's day (which it's very good at). I also hate the Terradon models (especially the new ones) but I plan to put Gargoyle wings on some Skinks and say that they are members of a particularly odd Sacred Spawning. The Carnosaur is a *******' T-Rex. Need I say more?

    Anyway, here's a list I came up with. I would like to go to tournaments with it, and would like to win as many games as possible.

    ----

    Saurus Oldblood on Carnosaur with Light Armor, Shield, Blade of Revered Tzunki and Carnosaur Pendant - 456
    Skink Priest with Dispel Scroll and Ancient Stegadon with Engine of the Gods - 380
    Skink Chief on Ancient Stegadon with Stegadon War Spear - 340

    20 Skink Skirmishers - 140
    20 Skink Skirmishers - 140
    10 Skink Skirmishers - 70

    3 Terradons - 90

    2 Salamanders with extra handler - 155
    3 Razordons - 225

    Total: 1996

    ----

    The Strategy

    Use the Carnosaur/Old Blood Team to stomp around and scare the pants off of everyone, to take out big nasties (6 WS 6 S 6 Attacks with no armor save + 5 WS 3 S 7 Attacks that become d3 wounds. Ouch!) and to break units with the help of either stegadon or one of the larger skink units. The 10-man skink unit will screen him.

    The Stegadons will hide behind the big Skink units, the Salamanders and Razordons will guard the flanks, and the Terradons will mage-snipe, warmachine hunt, harass, or march-block. Thoughts?

    First off, the carnosaur pendant is redundant. As soon as the carno goes nuts, the oldblood will follow. And I don't think you need the blade. With all the wounds that the carno can dish out, the oldblood really doesn't need it. I would just take a spear, and I like the venom of the firefly frog also.

    Skink Priest with Dispel Scroll and Ancient Stegadon with Engine of the Gods - 380
    A second scroll or the diadem of power would be nice.

    Skink Chief on Ancient Stegadon with Stegadon War Spear - 340
    I used this guy at first, but don't really like him much any more. Too hard to get off enough charges to make it worth the points.

    20 Skink Skirmishers - 140
    20 Skink Skirmishers - 140
    10 Skink Skirmishers - 70
    I think 20 is a little too unwieldy. If you want to use that many, I would go with 5 units of 10, but personally three units of ten would be my preference.

    3 Terradons - 90
    Terradons are nice.

    2 Salamanders with extra handler - 155
    3 Razordons - 225
    Not impressed by any of our rares to tell the truth. But you have a good number.

    Good luck,

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