Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was searching the forms and unable to find anything on the Kroxigors in a skink unit. I am starting lizardmen and was looking for some advice.
I am looking at 16 skinks and 2 Kroxigors to make a full rank. I am thinking of a full command in the unit. I am looking for what people think of this. This will be in a 1000 point army to support the side of the Sarus unit. Anyone willing to give me insight?
I have had 0 luck with this unit, I have tried it against many different ways and every time it is just full of FAIL. Also lizardmen 1.3 Update says to ignore great reach rule, so I would assume that they have to go in the front rank now.
I have had better luck with a unit of 3 Kroxigors with no skinks.
If you really want to run this unit I would get them against a unit they can use steadfast against.
I would say you need a unit with at least 3 kroxigors to compensate for the combat resolution the skinks will give up. Kroxigors still go in the second rank. Great reach is ignored as you can normally attack from the second rank now, so it wasn't needed. I have also had limited success with this unit, but if you like it, go with a bigger unit. In a 1k game you could probably use this unit as your only core.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
