Well, my brother has decided to start Fantasy with the Lizardmen, while I and my other brother play High Elves and Empire, respectively. We will be starting out at 1500, so what do you recommend my Cold-blooded brother get? I now Saurus warriors, and maybe a Slann, but what else? Are cold one cavalry good?

I think a battalion box is a good start for LM. You'll get a nice big block of suarus, (4 more than you get in an individual box), 12 skinks that are nice to use as skirmisher/scouts, 10 Templeguard which you can use the unit champion as a hero until you get a block of 20 or more, or in a small game just use the 10 by themselves. And then you get just enough Cavalry for a good unit, You realy only want 7 in the unit but with 2 attacks each they are better than most cavalry at dealing with blocks.
Slanns are amazing but you may find at 1500pts taking a slann is too expensive other than naked if you want points to spend elsewhere. I would suggest to get started, that 1000pts is a better goal. Alot of people start with higher limits and quickly loose interest as theres alot of models to put together anf paint at 1500pts, and normaly give up after 1 unit. 1000pts your looking at 2-3 units a hero or 2 and somthing special like a cannon/monster etc. its just enough so you feel that your making progree when making your force.
Hope this helps.
Well to start off the collection I'd get 2 battallions and a slann. You can convert the skinks to camo skinks, and cold ones to sallies, and you have some skinks left over for handlers. You have 40 saurus and 20 TG, beyond that just add in more boxes of saurus and skinks till he gets to his comfortable amount. Granted, this is more than 1.5k, but its the cheapest way I've found to get a LM army.
