Welcome to Librarium Online!
just want everyones general opinion on both of these units. i personaly like both of them, the krox have worked pretty nasty for befor. i almost prefer them over saurus calvary because i dont like the calvary stupidty even with cold blooded backing them up. plus strength 6 is pretty hard. and i have used sallies yet because of rare slot confusion but now its fixed. so tell me your thoughts and expiericiense with both these units
With the nerf to Kroxigors (*sniff*) and the buff to Saurus Cavalry I haven't fielded them once after the new rule book.
I haven't done to well with Sallies, due mainly facing shooting heavy elfs (note that Salamanders are not skirmishers EDIT: They aren't skirmishers against shooting I mean).

Salamanders are skirmishers.
I have never used Kroxigors, but I use salamanders quite alot. They can have some good battles and really be an asset to you. Other times they arn't quite as usefull, but they can always do somthing profitable since they can be put in a unit of 3.
If they get a good roll on the dice, they should do fine in any fight.
Two rules for success:
1. Never tell all you know
They are skirmishers but sallies are US3 so don't get the -1 to hit buff.

Personally I love salamanders. They will always manage to do something. they ARE skirmishers.
They can protect a flank, they can keep up with the cav. Most of the time i just move up and flame down their flank. They cause fear and can hold their own in CC.
And they add US6 to the fear auto break tally
I remember this one time they paniced off 450 points of iron breakers off the board...
thanks for the input everyone, I own a 4 unit of krox and they work retty nasty considering not a lot has high strength in the lixardmen army. even with the nerf they still have 3 str 6 attacks a peace and fear so i really dont know what the complaints are about. i love to actualy put the champ in with them because it makes the unit a character smashing unit...for only 20 points you get an extra attack and the chance to charge and duel an other wise would be anoying character and if he backs down you get to slaughter more of the unit. and the sallies ive used have worked pretty well but they make me cry when they get charged...even by the simpelest of units like dark riders cause they just sit their and die. so in the last couple games at 2000 points i used two units of one sallie and they work pretty well cause if they try to charge the one sallie he flees and the other one burns up the unit who tried to kill its mate. Ive also been trying 2 sallies in one unit and 2 razors in a another unit for one flank and that itself keeps everyone away from that side of the board horrificaly destructive
