Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm new back to the world of WH Fantasy and lizardmen, although my first encounters were probably back before many of you were even born using 1st edition Warhammer and I remember my lizardmen boxed set had a scenario in it featuring a hero called Dorian Redhorn - Happy days, but I digress.
Yesterday, I had my first battle with my new 1500pt scaly army and it was tops. Jeez, saurus are rock hard! I played against High elves and gave them a solid spank.
Moment of the game was when he charged his Griffon prince guy into my skinks and they were one 6 away from killing the griffon during their stand and fire reaction (they did then proceed to get wiped out though).
Other highlights included charging a steggie into a unit of Swordmasters and wiping them out - "yes you do get to strike first, but that's after the impact hits and the zapping you're going to take fromt the EOTG".
Having not played Lizzies before I wasn't sure what to expect so was very happy with the sheer resliance of this army. They don't go down easy and they don't run easy.
Really looking forward to expading the army and getting to the size where I can get a Slann into the mix.

yea its fun to kill high elfs
I would deff give the slann a try. Also you might want to give cham skinks amd Salamanders a shot.
Best of luck to yah.
A noble victory!
Try to spank some DE players for me, I have a special hatred from them.
my 2 cents, stay away from Kroxigors and use terradons in fun games. if you want to give your army a boost, try a slann, some temple guard, salamanders, and i have even had some lucky hits with cold one kinghts (there is a banner in the army book that they get and extra D6 on the first charge SWEET!)
Slann's are nasty individuals, slap the plaque of tepok on 'em and you've got a 5 spells, take diadem of power as well for the dispel. Higher state of consciousness makes it so ONLY magical attacks effect him, while against some armies this is pointless (dwarves/runes on cannons) against others its a game winner.
I love that LM are set up to easily make multiple varieties of the same army. Skink swarms can own (almost 200 models on the board lol), a sharkmen army would just be fun as hell to make (from an artistic standpoint), and the general army itself has tons of variation (stegadon fan myself).
