Hey guys so brand new here, and i'm gonna start playing Warhammer Fantasy soon, now so far my favorite looking army has to be the Lizardmen. I've been playing warhammer 40k for quite some time now and am looking forward to Fantasy but i also know nothing about it. Is there anything i should know about the army? Any armies i should avoid fighting for awhile till i know my army better? Are lizardmen good for a first army? Any advice/hints/tips/tactics i should know? i honestly don't have a clue about fantasy i've only watched a couple games and listened to people talk about it at the local store. so any answers to my questions would be greatly appreciated or anything you can add outside of the questions i asked would be as well. i'm going to go ahead and thank you guys ahead of time for your answers and i'm super pumped to join the community!
Lizardmen are a decent first army. You get involved in all the phases of the game and have some decent options in each, though shooting is a little limited. I wouldn't avoid any armies to start with. Even losses will help you learn the game, sometimes more than wins will. The new fantasy edition is a good game, and I hope you enjoy your foray away from the dark side (40k).
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
thanks for the advice i ended up buying the battalion box set and the sauraus lord on foot blister, i changed two of the skinks into a skink priest and a skink chief but am now trying to decide what to make the 10 remaining skinks, in my first game used them as the skirmishers, i was playing ogre kingdoms and i'd like to say my first game was a resounding success and victory, i only lost my ten temple guard and my saraus old blood and completely destroyed all of his ogres. the cold one cavalry had the most success out of any of my units although i only ended up with the champion left, all in all it was a fun experience and can't wait to do it again! but i was hopeing for some advise on either skirmishers or a regiment, or maybe even greenstuffing them into chameleon skinks? let me know please!!!
if you use skinks to big units ( like i gonna do ) then you will kill many other regiments if you get it minimum 40 skinks 1 skink chief and minimum 5 kroxigors i know many ppl in here see look at it it only got WS 2 and T 2 why use it then i get saurus that got WS 3 S 4 T 4 and my resone its i can get more make fear (good VS goblins, skavens and gnobblers) and 3 S 6 attacks per kroxigor and if you got 5 they count like a rank and the first kroxigor first come then there only 3 skinks remain so you will minimum have 3 ranks if they got charged they just make Stand and shoot 10+ shoots that hit on 5+ and got poisen they all got 6+ armor save (6+ ward save only in combat if they got front in combat) and i know ppl say i can get spears so i got 4 ranks attacking
but Chameleon skinks are good too just to kill cannons and like becose they got Skirmish and scout so set op close to the big evil cannon, mach and then shoot i have not tryied the last thing its only somebody that think on it but could be awsome and i will sugest GET A SLANN MAGE PRIEST THEY KILL PPL! think that was all i could say from now good luck and have fun
