Welcome to Librarium Online!
Yesterday I played in a tournament. I haven't played my Lizzies that much, and I was happy that I got a 8. place out of 18. ( lol, number 1 was playing deamons and 2,3 and 4 was playing VC) However, I was wondering if my army was just a little cheesy. We played 2250 pts, and I had a old blod on carnosaur, skink chief on ancient stegadon with the stegadon-war spear and a lvl 2 priest on engine. ( I really like big dinosaurs ) These 3 took 1300 pts of my army. I think they did really well, and I liked my list. But do you think that other people think this is cheesy?

I would not consider that cheesy. Especially when there are 3 VC armies and a daemon player. Nowadays, you need to take tougher lists to have a chance vs the power armies.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Not cheesy. It is powerful but what are they expecting. If you want to win of course your going to bring a strong force.
Daemonic cheese-how? Well, you would need to start with daemonic milk, i guess...
sorry sir but its not cheezy.
I once played a list for a 1000 point tournament which was two skink priest on the engine-o-doom with two units of skinks with the pipes. it was mean but even though it was a hard list i lost to empire with three cannons...so every army has its downfall to other armies....what you wanna do is just heavily metagame against armies you know are going to win like deamons and VC. If your list is tailored against tough lists like those it will be pretty fair against non-hated armys.
I played in a 16 man tournament at my gaming store and came in second to tomb kings. Im not saying tomb kings is a bad army or anyhting but the army list beat a maxed out tzeentch deamons army right befor playing me. His magic was so high he outcasted and out shot my two engines and my slann. his army was perfectly tailored for max defense and max shooting and that is what he did and in the process his catapaults were doing mass damage along with 4 units of bowmen shooting around 200 shots per turn from mass incantations. So what im saying is yes some armys have better stats but sometimes you can be a better thinker and general than your opponant with any army.
