Welcome to Librarium Online!
im really tempted to stat a lizardmen army based on kroq-gar mainly because i love the model and i really like the ew cold one models.
maybe include the following (please bear in mind i dont hve the book with me so this is just a rough guide).
either a saurus scar vet on coldone and a skink priest
or 2 skink preists
lots of cold one knights
a couple of units of skinks
1 or 2 stegadons
let me know how you think this army will do
any tips or advice really welcome
I did an army similar to tis a while back:
BSB on cold one
scroll caddy priest
3 units of 5/6 cold one knights
Its a very difficult army to use effectively at 2k points as its v small and (a bit) fragile (obviously it has some nice armour). Hovever, everything apart from the pries causes fear, and as an army that is very nasty indeed. You do have toi be very confident with it though. Not one to play if you're just starting out methinks.
I really like your list that you posted,how many cold one riders do you think i need in 2000 points and although i really like kroxigors do you think i should swap out the stegadons for them.
i like the stegadon for numerous reasons first off the model is gorgeus and who can argue with 2 big dinosaurs in their army
it will provide some fire support and if needs be i could put my priest in it(does he have to stay on the stegado all game).
and its a very big scary chariot lol
also would swarms do well in this army
I'm not a big fan of chariots in principle, so to have one thats at least double what I normally pay for one AND slower (albeit with much better stats) I just can't seem to get it to work. Though you go with it just for the psychological warfare PoV.
The fire support provided by it is naff at the very best. It really isn't reliable enough.
The priest would have to stay on it all game, also you'd lose the bow.
At their cost, you're doing well to fit in >20 COCav, AND the rest of what I've put there. 16 is a good amount as thats 2 boxes worth!
IIRC I had a few magic banners in there to, such as the sun standard.
Swarms are a no-no in general, they're too overpointed.
NB. I'm not by any means saying that you should copy this army mod for md, its just a setup thats worked for me.
ive just re-read the swarms stats and i see what you mean 60 points for a base at T2 and when they suffer a wound isnt it doubled,although would they not work well as an anti-charge unit again the T2 comes into play.
i was thinking abot swapping the stegadon for some terradons.
Terradons are a unit that I've never really used, again they seem rather expensive for what they do. However, I can see them working as a support unit in this army. I do urge you to give the kroxies a try though, even if its just a unit or 3.
ii've always thought they were quite slow then i had another look at there stats and they are faster than saurus cavalry,the only downside is the how much they cost(£ wise).
i dont suppose you know of any alternative models i could use.
Oh yeah, they're quick, its just the staying power I have a problem with. They die rather easily. As for alternatives...
You've got me there. I have 3 old style ones that I'm likely to be ebaying soon if you want first dibs?
cud do how much would you want for them,i should be getting some money through selling some of my stuff on sunday.
Hmmm.. dunno. Name a price really. Is there anything you have to trade? I could use some 40k spares if you have any? I suppose I'm looking at £12ish otherwise, inc. postage.
