Welcome to Librarium Online!
im a skaven player originally but im looking into starting a lizardman army as my secondary army, no im not a warhammer noob i usto workin GW liverpool but i quit many years back n have been out of the game for roughly 5 years, anyway those scaley skined buggers.
im lookin at makin a skink army, with 3 units of 24 skinks with 3 kroxigors in as my core units as i love the idea of them charging into battle with there big buddys behind them ready to smash hell out of the opponent. hehe, (wots ur oppinion)
for my heros & lord choice im not sure.. as i dont want temple guard in my army i am wondering if it was worth takin a slann, n as for my heros im not sure i could maybe put chiefs in my units to make them hit harder or just take priests for magic, but as i do not own the lastest WFB rule book i am unsure of wot the lore of life does.
special untis, im thinking about 3 steggedons LOL but i would like to use terradon riders with the special character also (not sure about that yet)
rare, i dunno if EOTG is worth it, it seems VERY nasty on paper but i also like the salamanders n razorscales so i dunno maybe i take 1 of each
btw im only going upto 2000 points with my army atm
help would be appreicated
lol nice emotes lol
Skink units with kroxigors are seen as one of the weaker selections in our army. If I used them it would be in units of 24 ranked 6 wide with 2 Krox in them. Or I would run a small unit of 11 with 1 krox for flankers (11 skinks and a krox gives you three full ranks and lets you negate ranks of units that you flank).
I would honestly just run them seperate though, skinks and krox seem the most effective when you dont mix them together in my opinion.
Skink armies are harder to win with than balanced armies in my opinion, but you can still be competitive, just remember that all the following units will fit in a skink army fluffwise.
Ancient and Normal Stegadons, skinks of all varieties (ranked, skirmishers, and chameleon), Teradon Riders, Salamanders, Razordons.
Kroxigor also fit the theme since they work closely with their skink buddies.
"I am the architect of fate!"
im only really take the skinks as a shield for the kroxigors really
anyone else have advice? like wot to take as my special n rare n heros?
Just buy a unit of skink skirmishers and run them as a screen for the kroxigors then... You will lose the rank negating ability, depending on how many krox make it to combat, but they are there to provide kills. Against soo many opponents, the skinks will give away more combat res than they are worth in a mixed unit.
I'm not sure if you meant it this way in your post, but note that EOTG does not take a rare slot. It is a mount for the priest and character mounts don't take other slots unless they say so, which they don't.
It is still feasible to run a Slann without TG if you desire one, he has an ability to be ethereal which protects him from most things. There are people that do it successfully. A Slann backed up by priest on engine and maybe another priest makes a powerful magic phase. And its heavens that the priests use not life, heavens is alright but not brilliant.
Really you have basically everything open to you in your list, everything in the LM army is worth taking except swarms.
EOTG is the most amazing thing. It allows you to take a essentially level 3 wizard as a hero choice, is S6 t6, impact hits like a chariot, AoE damage like awarmachine and moves like a monster.
+ US10, causes terror and gives a 2+ armour save to its crew. what more could you want?
the EOTG is simply amazing.
That said, take a chief with a stegadon helm as your general. Highest LD you can get in an all skink army.
very good point ill look into it atm im still tosing around ideas
you'll want to get a copy of the rulebook first before buying most of your models. Then buy the lizardman book and make a list.
Skink armies usually have skinks, stegadons and terradons with maybe some terradons mixed in. Stegadon helm is too expensive. Get the warspear. A BSB will help as well, but that depends on the point level you're playing.
ye theyre the same rules i usto play its ok i just had a minor brain fart
