Welcome to Librarium Online!
Has anyone ever tried a monster truck list with any success? I was thinking maybe a host of quetzl, no saurus, lots of big dinos. Something like this.
Old Blood – LA, shield, Spawning of Quetzl andTepok, Carnosaur, Aura of Quetzl, Scimitar of Sun, Ench. Shield
Priest – 2 scrolls, quetzl
10 skinks, quetzl, javelin
10 skinks, quetzl, javelin
10 skinks, quetzl, pipe
10 skinks, quetzl, pipe, scout
2005 pts total
I'm used to using Saurus and just letting the enemy crash and break over them like the rocks they are, but I think it would be fun to have a highly mobile/speedy army. Three terror causers seems nice. The skinks can screen, and maybe help reduce a rank bonus here or there with a few poison shots. Any thoughts? It would be expensive to build (I would still need 5 CoR, a Steg, and the Carno), but might be worth it if it would be fun/successful
You need to give the Oldblood the blessed spawning of Itzl if you want him to ride a Carnosaur.
Also, what does 'quetzl' after the skink priest mean?
Ah, quetzl means the blessing, it is a host of quetzl and I didn't feel like typing Blessed Spawning of QUetzl after each unit, heh heh. And the Old Blood has Itzl, it is factored into the cost of the Carnosaur isn't it? So I just gave him two blessings and then "Carnosaur". At least, I hope it is factored in, otherwise I have to find room for some more points in the list
the same goes for me with the OB taking Itzl, he must have it if you want him to ride the Carnie
good luck with your list and may the Old Ones smile on you,
The blessed spawning of Itzl is not factored in with the Carnosaur. You have to pay for it separately
I'm just wondering.. Why are you using the sacred host of quetzl when you aren't going to field any saurus warriors? It only forces you to spend points on giving it to skinks and the skink priest, since you could give to the old blood in a regular army too.. I suppose it would make them a better screen, but they'll die just as easily against handguns and such..
Anyway, the army sounds fun! Dinosaurs ftw!
You could even incorporate a contingent of Great Lizards in a larger game if your opponent agrees. Then you could field even more dinos, and a real thunder lizard!:w00t:
i'm not familiar to this, does it mean:Originally Posted by huanzlat;
Great Lizards = Kroxigors?
just want to know what you are talking about..
THe sacred host is to make the Skink priests use the Lore of Death so that they will be much more useful. And crud, I had not realized the price for the the Itzl spawning wasn't factored in, that means I need to tweak points. Whoops I will consider another block of Krox instead of CoR. They are just so much more expensive, hehe...
Great Lizards is a trial army featured in Chronicles 2004. It contains packs of cold ones and terradons and such as core, independant stegs and carnosaurs as special and a beastie called Thunder Lizard as rare. It has str 7, 2+ scaly skin, -1 ld to all enemies in base contact, impact hits and more. They also have a lvl 4 wizard dragon as lord. The army can be used in conjunction with Lizardmen, as a separate allied army, if the opponent allows it.
Ok, lore of death, that's why.
