Welcome to Librarium Online!
with 8th out, a friend and I decided to make a new army, guess which one mine is...
I have this issue though, how does skinks and kroxigor (in a combined unit) work out their base size dilemma ? I actually dont have any of the models at hand, but before buying, I'd like to know what's the skink base size ? human (elf/empire) or bad ass (chaos/saurus), because if I'm right about this, Kroxigors haves the same base as Ogres, and if they are mixed with skinks, they'll get a weird formation if skinks dont have badd ass bases...
Skinks are on 20mm bases. Kroxigors are on 40mm bases. So 1 Krox takes up the place of 4 skinks. They fit fine together in a unit. Everything stays in a neat formation.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Thx for the answer !
But now I have some more issues :
How are rank calculated for multiple base units, and is there a given way to place the models inside the unit or m'I free to choose which position they have inside the unit.
Let's assume that I have a unit consisting of 3 Kroxi's, and 24 Skinks. I make the unit 6 wide, and put the kroxi's in the second rank to benefit from their attack punch. Is that ok ? are the left behind skinks going to take the hits instead of the kroxi's, because I also have a T issue in this unit.
ok in the unit u mention 6 wide with 24 skink and 3 krox that would be 6x6 as the krox take up 4 skink slots
so u'd have 6 skink 3 krox and that would be ur attacks with krox counting as Rank 2 + 3 ranks 4 5 6 would be skinks
now if u take enough to horde the unit even thoug being a horde adds Rank 3 to the support and Krox are so big they efectivly take up Rank 3 also the skniks in Rank 4 (directly behind the krox) get their +1 attack support so thats 40+ skinks and 5 krox for max effect at 10 wide
and remember krox are monstrus Infantry so they get all their atatcks ]
Warhammer Armies: Lizardmen addresses how mixed units work, though do remember that the Ver. 1.1 Lizardmen FAQ says that you do get to ignore the "Great Reach" rule.
ye Great reach is now ignored as per the Errata/FAQ ont he GW web ite but thats due to them now being monster inf and gaining ful attacks for upport anyway i would assume
how to you count hit and like in combined units? the rules say you take them from behind but not think that are a way so can you chose what you hit and this info are not only to me but on my clup where many players got combined units and are confused
You remove skinks until the krox are exposed and forced into the front row. Until a krox is in the front row the only thing your opponent can attack is what is in the front row so the krox can not be attacked until they are exposed.
