    how to use a slann well !!

    most people who play lizardmen use a slann in 2000 p+ battles but not many people are
    open to using the special power of any lore

    firslty choose the lores of fire, death, metal and light then roll one spell for each if the spell is not that good go for the deafult spell which in the case of fire, death, metal and light is a good magic missle this way you can get get great spells from the best laws or at least end up with good magic missles.

    for your slanns well being stick him in a unit of saurus warriors of temple guard, size of 20ish give him a bsb and magic items/banner and you are ready to go

    better yet give them a ward save and the blessing of quetzl and throw in a spell from the lore of heavens or two

    Translation:

    A lot of people who play 2000+ point games of Lizardmen use a Slann. Not many people, however, like to use the Slann's ability to utilize multiple lore's.

    A good strategy when choosing from multiple lores is to choose the lores of fire, death, metal, and light. Roll one dice for each lore and if you do not get a spell you want then you can select the default which is a magic missile for every one of the forementioned lores.

    To ensure your slann's safety put him in a unit of Saurus or Temple Guard with of a unize size of around 20ish. Give the slann a magic BSB and some items and you are ready to go.

    If you wanted to increase your slann's defense you could give him one of the plaque's that grant him a ward save from shooting as well as the spawning of quetzl (Can you give the slann a spawning?).

    Another good choice is to just pick lore of heavens and sit in the back of the battle hurling spells about due to it's long range.

    "If you wanted to increase your slann's defense you could give him one of the plaque's that grant him a ward save from shooting as well as the spawning of quetzl (Can you give the slann a spawning?)."

    No, you can't, but you can give the Saurus who are protecting him one.

    All good advice(Y)

    Make sure the Slann is 2nd Gen so you can really abuse the free dice with those magic missiles

    Don't discount the lore of life either. The base spell can be great when used right but the real beauty of this lore is that unless you actually roll a 1 then you aren't likely to going to want to change your spell.

    It is all great advice.

    I usually give my slann the plaque of dominion and tepok giving him yet another spell and casting dice, which, with his free dice, he is almost sure to cast.

    Also, you should always augment him with a skink priest with cloak of feathers. Telepathy is fantastic,

    "wait, whats that!! You cant shoot fireballs around corners!"

    Always good for a laugh,
