does anyone apart from me think temple guard are far to expensive pointswise
damn it I forgot to put in a poll anyhow just post what u think
I think everything in lizardmen is too expensive but when you end up looking at it they hit hard, have good toughness and strengh, and have a good armor save. The only problem is you need a slaan to use them which makes them mostly useless under 2k points.
From what I've seen of them, they are ridiculously expensive but you simply have to chop them all down in combat if a Slann's involved. I had a game where the Emperor and retinue took about 8 combat phases (4 turns) to mow them down to one lizard.
I think they are massively overpriced but still take them as the alternative of using Tlazcotl saurus to protect my Slann just does not do the same. I give my Slann 20 TG with shields, full command and war banner. The unit with a 2nd gen Slann is the best part of 1000 points which is a large basket to place all the eggs in.
With the new army book rumored due early next year I think Temple Guard will see a points drop and a stat boost, perhaps I3 and given light armor.
They are about the right price for what they do. They are next to unbreakable with the Slann which is great in itself. In addition, they are uber tough and can also dish out the pain where needed.
