Hi all, I'm fairly new to WHFB and very new to Lizardmen (just 3 battles under my belt)
I'm trying to put together a decent 2000 point list for a friendly tournament.
I know I will be up against a few Skaven players and at least a couple of Chaos Warriors, amongst others.
Skaven have always given me trouble with their doomwheels :/
anyways, heres the list I thought of, any help would be appreciated
lore of Life
Focus of Mystery
Cupped Hands of the Old Ones
BSB (Standard of Discipline)
- 475 points
Engine of the Gods
Diadem of Power
Plaque of Tepok
- 395 points
2x Salamander Hunting pack, 1 extra handler each
- 160 points
24x Temple Guard
- 405 points
24x Saurus Warriors
- 282 points
24x Saurus Warrior
- 282 points
Total of 1999 points
Core=28% Special=20% Rare=8% Hero=20% Lord=24%
My plan would be to put the Slann in the TG (TG would be in ranks 6 across)
This unit would deploy centrally with the Steg to its flank.
The Saurus units (in 6x4 formation) would be either side.
I would try and keep this block together.
The salamanders would move up the flanks (one each side) and try to fry my opponents from the sides.
Any advice would be great
This isn't a must but if you can cavalry would probably be quite helpful in getting in a flank charge or taking out the enemies missile troops. Apart from that it looks pretty solid with a good amount of infantry.
First off, your skink priest can't have two arcane items. And personally, I don't think having one stegadon in a list is viable.
Then I would combine the saurus into one larger block of 30+, and add some skink units. If you drop the steg, some more salamanders would be nice, but as its a friendly tournament, you may get some dirty looks. In that case, terradons or cold ones would be useful.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
You make a good point about the single steg, I was putting it in more for the benefits of the engine, but, on reflection im wondering if that many points is justified.
Also, thanks for pointing out my mistake with the double arcane items, should have spotted that myself really, comes from swapping items between the slann/priest and the skink chief I had in the list originally
I currently only have 12 skink models but have been thinking of investing in a box or 2 more. Was also thinking of adding some Kroxigor to this.
