    Hey all. Ive begun the starting of my Lizardmen army with a box of skinks and saurus w/ skink priest. Im thinking about a red skin color, and codex grey scales on back, dunno bout shields yet. But, i have some questions that i need help on.

    (1) Saurus: I heard they you always should bring a minimum of 20.. Is this so?

    (2) Saurus: On my current squad of 16, i have 13 saurus w/ hand weapons/shields, musician, standard bearer and champion. A fellow player at my GW store tells me with the leadership of 8 and coldblooded, i really dont need to spend the 6 points for the musician. What do you think?

    (3) Skinks: Blowpipes/hand weapon or javelins/shield. In my 1000 point army, i think im gonna have a block of 20 saurus and 3 kroxigors and 30 skinks. I was wondering, how many skinks i should allocate for screen of kroxigors and/or saurus and how many for skirmishers/scout and what to give each. Can you help?

    Thanks a lot. I really appreciate it.

    Well, depends on how many points you are playing, but they should be 20+ in games of 1500+.

    (2) Saurus: On my current squad of 16, i have 13 saurus w/ hand weapons/shields, musician, standard bearer and champion. A fellow player at my GW store tells me with the leadership of 8 and coldblooded, i really dont need to spend the 6 points for the musician. What do you think?
    I would say that it's always a good thing to have a musician, they still can start running away from a battle even that they got cold blooded

    3) Skinks: Blowpipes/hand weapon or javelins/shield. In my 1000 point army, i think im gonna have a block of 20 saurus and 3 kroxigors and 30 skinks. I was wondering, how many skinks i should allocate for screen of kroxigors and/or saurus and how many for skirmishers/scout and what to give each. Can you help?
    I would say that their equipment should be chosen after their combat role, but generally it's only skinks with the scout option that should use blowpipes.
    And for the regiment sizes, a skirmish screen regiment should be 10 - 15 skinks. For a scout regiment 10 is a good size as they should be a little more manouverble than the screens.

    Continued....

    (1) Im playing 1000 points tops. I think ill bring just 1 squad of 20 saurus.

    (2) Ill keep the musician.

    (3) In 1000, how many skinks should i allocate as screen. I have 30. Ill take your advice on the javelin/shield for screen and blowpipes/hand weapon for scouts.

    Thanks man.
