Last weekend I was playing my empire friend in a 1000pt game. My only character was a nike saurus w/quetzl (sacred host!) and sotek that fluffed 6 rounds of combat with his knights. He asked me how much my leader was worth afterwards, and just stared at me in shock when I told him... After talking for a little bit about improving my army list, he said I have a bad habit of focusing on upgrading my units with spawnings and magic items.
Is this a common thing for lizzies (the priceiness, not the fluffing!)? During our discussion, I felt that a few tooled up units like the nike NORMALLY earn their points back. Also, the army lists I've seen usually have pretty expensive prices. However, he felt that a few saurus to support my infantry and cavalry would be a better choice. Or maybe the empire doesn't realize humans are expe...low cost.
Thanks for any insightful discussion.
I would just say curse the dice gods and continue using the JSoD. One reason he may have been suprised at the cost is that his equivelent to the scar vet is a captain which costs only 50 points. When the JSoD kills 4 knight in one round and then runs them down or when he charges a TK chariot unit and turns them all to splinters he will think that the JSoD is "cheesy" and "unfair".
Yes many lizardmen players spend too many points on magic items and spawnings but I wouldn't take any advise from an empire general on the matter (he might not understand that most LM units rely on kills to win combat not static combat resolution).
I could give you more help if you where to post your army list.
Should I post the list in the army list forum or would here be fine? Also, I could write a rough battle report (with his list of course!) of what happened if anyone is willing to help with advice to crack this egg. And since I see a thread of lizard tactics has popped up, maybe we could use this thread to begin the Empire bashing? Keep the other thread cleaned up and all. I don't know how these things work!
Anyways, thanks for the support kroxigor1.:party:
I think it would be alright to post the army list here but you may as well just post it in the army list forum to be safe. I don't the battle report is neccisary but your opponants army is.
Put your army list up in the Army Lists section so we can take a peek at it .
there are loads of threads on the JSoD and untimately, tonnes of tactics as to where the LM's strengths and weaknesses are. or you could learn from your mistakes and adapt to win games.
Experience and knowledge of your opponent's army is the key to victory and winning games
