Pretty much what it says on the tin, or at least in the title. Has anyone ever come across any rules for Oxayotl, the chameleon skink special character? I have the model and want to possibly use him in an army.
Oxayotl was the first chameleon skink in the 5th edition rulebook. He was 102pts with a 5+ scaly skin save (which back then couldnt be lowered past a 6+ by strength modifiers. He had the first version of the chameleon rule (-2 to shoot at) and the first poison dart blowpipe, except he could fire 3 shots at S5 (poison didnt auto-wound if i recall). He also had the chameleon scout rules.
Statwise he is the equivalent of a current skink chief but with one higher BS, T4!, an extra wound, with I and LD 7
Hope that helps.
Sorry I didn't come back to this straight away- thanks for the info! AE
I'd use him a either:
A Skink Chief with the appropriate magic item/ spawnings to make his armour save higher (to represent the Cameleon skin ).
Or, as a superb Skink/Cameleon Champion for the relevant unit, (realistically, who would want a skink champion in a screening unit?)
Finding the actual rules could possibly help to field him as a character, but wouldn't have be a bit overpowered from rules of such an area?
Either way, I think the model makes a fine addition to any army
So far as I know he never got an update. I use him as the 10th model in the chameleon skink unit, as I bought 3 blisterpacks with 3 models each. And that way he can be used as a champion of the unit if I wanted to.
The stats of him are what Hawkkf said. 5+ scaly skin, that can't become worse then 6+ due to strength modifiers. Cold Blooded (same as now). Can't join units. 102 pts.
Poison back then added +1 S so he shot 3 S5 shots, 12" range.
His chameleon skin rule is a bit better as it is now, -2 to shoot at instead of the -1. So as he is a single model he gets a total of -3 to hit.
His amazing stealth rule was also a bit better than the current chameleon scouting, as you can set up Oxayotl no closer then 8" while out in the open.
Meaning 3 S5 shots with a 2+ to hit (3+ against single model) on the first turn hehe. He was a real nice assassin of weak chacaters
Well that's about all there is to know about him. I guess you could make house rules for this guy... For me he stays the champ of the chameleon skink unit.
