hi guys I am planning start a lizardmen army and am going to buy current lizard men battalion and a few characters probably a scar vet a slann and two skink priests then when the new battalion comes out I plan to buy that as well as some Kroxigors and probably some teradons and maybe a salamander.
I have two questions in terms of points how many units will I be away from a 1000 point and 1500 point army
also is two full units of cold ones over the top I mean will I ever need that many cold ones I ultimately intend to turn the army into a 2500 point army if that changes the situation
thanks in advance and merry Christmas all
Two battlalions will be a fair wack of points.
You'll have 2 to 3 units of Saurus (2 of 24, or 3 of 15), that's about 750 points for the two untis.
HEAPS of skinks, (units of 11 or 13 work well) that's about another 300 points.
Wth 16 Saurus cav that's 560 points on models alone.
Cold Ones work well in units of 6, 5 with a Saurus character in them, two units like this isn't too much. One should have the Haunchi banner.
In short you're well over 1000 points and pushing 1500 without characters.
Are they releasing a new battalion? I thought they were sticking with the old one.
the new ones kinda crap, theyre dropping 8 suarus and 12 skinks and adding 10 new temple guard.
first I yes they are realising a new battalion it has 16 saurs 12 skinks 8 cold one riders and 10 of the new plastic temple guard
I just did the calculations and the old battalion was AU$ 175 worth of models the new one will be $165 worth of models so not as a good deal but still this why I have my plan to buy both because I was hopping that it would give me all the core units I need and the I could just focus on buying some rare units and some heroes
I think you get 20 saurus in the new one, which is only 4 less.
So we'll just be swapping 4 saurus and 12 skinks for 10 temple guard. It's not the best exchange, but the extra variety is welcoming.
I looked at the army book a couple of days ago.
The New Temle Guard are really cool. I would almost recomend that you get one old and one new batalion box. The New Slann are a bunch cheaper and still really good. But the best new thing is the Stagadon. It really rocks. My friend is going to run three or four.
I already have my new one ordered and old one put back for me for when I can get the money for it(moving hits your bank account really badly), and plan on getting a second new battalion to finish it up.
This way I have 4 units of 12 Skink Skirmishers, 3 blocks of 20 Saurus, and a block of 20 Temple Guard, with a Slann if I choose to run one. I'll also have 24 Cold One Calvary to mess around with, so I can figure out exactly how I want to run everything.
