Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am a Vampire Counts, Ogre player, and have always wanted to play lizardmen, I am considering getting started collecting but have heard that they may get a redesign in February-ish..
Is this what you hard core Lizard lovers are hearing?
It's practicaly sure now that there will be a new book infebruary. But if you like the army and the models, nothing stops you from getting some now. Saurus and skinks will always be needed, so you could go for a battalion (24 saurus, 24 skinks and 8 cold one riders, if i remember). Add a scar-veteran and you got yourself a nice, balanced starting force, and those models will surely be useable with the new book.
Hope this helps!
Temperature regulation is overrated.
Indeed, now is a fine time to get into Lizardmen. The plastics that are out for them likely will not be changing, so go ahead and pick up a battalion if you like. They are scheduled for a new book around March 2009 (March 9th is the date I've heard tossed around).
According to the pdf games workshop released the lizardmen are getting released at the 9th of febuary so I would not get a stegadon or kroxigors if I were you we are definatly getting plastics and I heard from a gamesworkshop employee that the stegadon is going to be the biggest plastic model ever realesed altough I am not convinced.
Daemonic cheese-how? Well, you would need to start with daemonic milk, i guess...
maybe I will pick up the batallion, thanks
Yea You might want to get a Lord or hero and a couple core units, at least wait until the update before you get 2000 points worth. They may nerf a specific unit you like.
If a Million Guardsmen die, that's a statistic. If one marine dies, that's a tragedy.
Seriously wait until february for anything other than the battalion.
That said a new battalion will be released.
I think you should make sure both of your current armies are completely finished before getting in to the lizards.
With all my armies, i have at least half a units worth of unpainted/made models.
Its just much more satisfying when everything is painted.
Also, have you checked out the rumours thread on lizardmen, it gives whole load of great info on how the new army will be.
Maybe get the current army book for the current fluff, but that would be its only use.
Lol I wish... Id buy one to use as a Steggy and one to turn into the greatest squiggoth that ever lived!!!!Originally Posted by Artificially Enhanced
Bigger than the new gameboard!?!?!?!?!?!
My ogres are 90% painted and 90% complete..
My vampire counts are about 10% painted and 100% complete.. I like having a backlog of stuff to do...
I bought the batallion, and am not sure what I want to arm them with yet, I might just put them on their bases and wait until I see the new book before giving them hand weapons or spears or sheilds or blowdarts or whathave you...
Having never read the current book, and not about to spend 40$ (cnd) on it I will gladly take advice!
