as the title shows, I have absolutely no experience in fantasy and lizardmen, so this list will probably be wrong, but I have watched several matches down at my local store and have sort of picked on a bit of information how the game works.
And now for the list:
Heroes - 238
scar veteran (general) 138
armour of destiny, great weapon
(deploys with saurus)
Skink Priest - 100
(deploys with skink skirmishers)
20 saurus warriors 270
spears and f/c
10 skink skirmishers 70
10 skinks 50
5 chameleon skinks 60
salamander hunting pack 70
What are your thoughts?
I'm not sure about the stegadon, seems a bit much for just 1000pts. I'm also not really sure about the saurus unit, as my idea was 7x3 but it seems quite wide so i'm not really sure on that either. I also don't have a copy of the rule book, so I have another question on whether or not the skink priest can deploy with the skirmishers. If so i'd have to deploy them with the normal skinks or in the saurus.
Thank you for your time for reading and replying

Welcome to Warhammer
Few Quick notes
Scar vet should be your BSB with this list
I would give the priest a dispell scroll, his main purpose is D
I would beef up the unit of Saurus warriors, I don't care for spears (can't use on a charge) I would go with 24
the 10 skinks (rank and file) Never tried to do anything like this since they are so weak almost anything will tear them up
Cham Skinks are Awesome try to get them behind his line (12inch scout rule)
Stegadon - Most people will just shoot him down before he can be useful 1 cannon ball/ stone thrower can take it out
Salamders - My fav unit in 1k games, I would think about getting 1 more so you would have 2 units of 1
thank you for a very thorough and detailed post.
I'm thinking i'm going to drop the rank and file skinks, as I see that they aren't at all that good. Dropping the spears could also get me enough points for the saurus warrior beef-up. However, unless i drop the scar veteran's upgrades and the extra level on the skink, i can't fit in the scroll and the bsb, as I can only have up to 25%. as for the stegadon, I simply love the model and the whole idea of a rampaging monster, and so I think i'll have to keep him because I love him so much. hopefully though the drops could get me another salamander if I shuffle things around. I'll post up a revised list once I'm done working it round
Anyway, thanks for the help and hope my list will improve!

Well if I had to pick, I would take the BSB over a scroll but that is how I like to play.
As far as the stegadon goes (always play what you like), give it a shot, if the enemy has any cannons/stone throwers keep him out of sight/range for best survival.
Good Luck and Remember to have fun.
I agree with most of Eduardo's thoughts. I haven't had skink rank and file that have earned their points yet. The only use I have found for them is to use them as a march block or a quick thrust into a flank, and even then they just aren't worth it (which is saying a lot for only 50 points).
I love the Stegadon model. Matter of fact I just bought a second one just to assemble it (thought I will assemble this one as EoTG). If you can tuck it behind a hill or forest to avoid fire that helps a lot. The problem lies in how many units you and your opponent have to deploy. He might not have his warmachines out yet by the time you need to deploy your steggie.
