Hey there everyone, i'm new to lizardmen and new to this forum, and i have a few questions to ask you guys regarding the new lizardmen codex. As i was perusing it, i happened to notice that the list of sacred spawnings is absent. Does this mean that we can no longer use sacred spawnings?!? I can't believe that would be true, but there is definitely no mention of sacred spawnings anywhere withing the codex. Also, i noticed that a few of the new heroes do not have models (that i know of). Go-rok and Tetto eko both don't seem to have an GW models assosciated with them. Whudufuxup?
One more thing. Saurus got a new 5+ scaly skin save, over thier old 6+. I was wondering, if i take saurus with a hand weapon and shield, does that mean they get a 3+ armor save in close combat, with a 4+ against shooting? Also, if i upgrade them with spears, does the front rank of saurus still get 2 attacks? I know in the old version of the codex i have (i just bought the new one) it says somethign to the effect that taking spears in a saurus regiment negates the Predatory fighter effect.
I know the saurus questions probably have been answered, but i could not seem to find an answer to the first question and decided to just ask them both at the same time.
Thanks for your help!
I was under the impression that the 2nd rank would be able to attack with their spears, but not with their bite attack.
I think the impression in the old book was that the second rank could not gore people as well with their sheilds or mouths... hence a "bite" attack.
Death Gaurd: 6/6/2
Warriors of Chaos 3/1/1
I read in the rulebook on page 29, that you can use shields for saving against missile attacks.
In the example it says:" Models that are wounded still have a chance to avoid damage if they
are wearing armor or carrying shields."
And further down it says: " Example, a warrior carrying a shield and wearing light armor has an armor save
of 5+, so he must roll a 5 or 6 to be saved by his armor."
Also on page 30 you have the armor save table for shooting.
Wait a minute, the way you said that sounds like the first rank gets 2 attacks, and the second rank gets two attacks also (when not charging), is that correct?
Do we know why GW retconned the sacred spawnings? I mean, the codex has at least two entries that make specific mention of these spawnings. Something like "Some spawnings are watched over by a particular god, and these spawnings have special traits."
Sometimes GW are so backwards >.<
Saurus are extremely good now, my brother was ALREADY complaining that they were overpowered lol.
In their old book (books?) they had a special ability called predatory something (perhaps wrong on that one aswell) and that ability symbolized an extra bite attack for a total of 2attacks.
Now that is gone and they have 2attacks, so the rank behind with spears also get 2attacks with spears.
That is if you stood still, then you can use the spears for the whole combat.
Tswf - Ignore everything after Sirkently's answers.
Whilst they are all valid points, SirK answers all your questions correctly and the rest could lead to confusion
Current painting project: 2300 pts of Dwarfs in 5 weeks.
I only quoted the rule book that he could use shield against missile attacks, and 2attacks per saurus including spear units.
