I recently got into Fantasy from 40k and chose Lizardmen. After many hours of reading lists and threads on Lizardmen I concluded that Stegadons and Terradons were quite good and useful.
I've only played a few games with the contents of the starter Lizardmen force but I recently bought 2 boxes of Stegadons and 4 blisters of Terradons to start to increase my force to 2000 points.
Now monsters cannot break ranks and get much less attacks and many people are saying Stegadons have been terror-nerfed. Terradons are much less reliable and are more of an annoyance than anything else than before. Stegadons now cannot break ranks and are likely to get all their skinks killed in the return fire.
Considering getting these goodies was a little over $110 I'm wondering if I should dump them now on ebay than be stuck with useless Stegadons and Terradons.
These are rumours nothing more nothing less at the moment. There is no need to panic and sell your models because of a rules change, even if they are terribly nerfed why ever sell? You may as well keep them for a future edition in which they are useful again (as surely they will be).
Also you say "monsters get much less attacks" I've never heard any rumour which reduces the number of attacks a monster can make.
All in all, don't panic. Wait for the edition to come out and play a couple of games with it before you make any rash decisions.
Yeah, as lewbot1 says don't panic over rumours. And what makes you think monsters get less attacks. From what I have read, the stegadons will get more attacks, as they will gain some kind of stomp attack (rumour I have seen is D6 extra attacks at end of combat). Terror did take a hit, but that isn't too big a deal.
Terradons seem that they will get weaker, but we will adapt.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
These are just rumors, and I'm pretty sure something will come out to "mend" the current rulebooks until the new ones are published.
From what little I've learned and can say, stegadons are going to get better actually. What with the new terror/fear system, stomp attacks, etc.
