    New To Lizardmen. Question about Battalion

    Hello everyone,

    As stated in the post title, I am new to Lizardmen and thinking about picking up the Battalion Box Set for starters.

    My question is for anyone who has purchased this set. Do the sprues contained within allow you to create all the skinks and/or saurus warriors the same way?

    Example, all the skinks with blowpipes or all the saurus with shields and hand weapons. Or does the sprue only allow half and half like shown in the pictures?

    Thanks in advance,

    Vicious Trend

    You can defo give all the saurus either hw and shield or spears and shield. However IIRC you have to mix the skinks up a bit. You can give the majority of them your desired weapon though, so it won't affect gameplay.

    Its best to have a 50/50 mix of skinks though in general opinion. Use Blowpipe skinks for scouts, and Javelin skinks for a kroxigor screen, assuming you want Krox (which, why wouldnt you, with the new plastic Krox on the way wooo! )

    Thanksfor the information and the quick reply.

    The skinks were not my major worry as I will want a mix for those depending on my list and opponents.

    The saurus on the other hand, I wanted to be sure I could load them all with hand weapon and shield.

    EDIT: On a side note, does anyone know an ETA for the new plastic Krox mentioned above?

    Yeah, not soon enough. hahaha sorry I just found out about them today, but I'm VERY excited to get my hands on one...or three...more....

    On a funny note I'm painting one of my old kroxies that looks like it has downs yndrom like barney =] YAY

    But to help you out with your skink delema I will vote on the 50/50 blowpipes javalins. Both are highly effective and helpful, though I do prefer blowpipes.
