    Hi

    I just wanted to know....Do any of you Lizardmen players thinks that it is a little "crappy" that your Skink Priests only get "The Lore Of Heavens"? Or don't you care 'corse it the best in your eyes? Just wanted to know

    Hope is the first step on the road to dissapointment.

    Not really, Heavens is one of the best, and it's number one spell is IMHO the best spell in the game.
    -My Warrior Priest will challenge your Chaos Lord
    -OK, my Chaos lord will slaughter you
    -My warrior priest with Van Hortsmen's Speculum will take his 7 Str 8 attacks. You die.
    -......What?
    -Take your model off the table, he's dead

    If you play a sacred host of <insert name of God here>, then Skink Priest can have other Lores. The rules appeared in UK WD 300 (I think)
    You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.

    Wouldn&#39;t it be better if they could have whatever they want? It gives some freedom, doesn&#39;t it? :huh: It&#39;s not that I don&#39;t like Skink Priests, I like them and Lizardmen very much, I just ask . I like that my mages can chose whichever they want. (High Magic) :rolleyes:

    it makes sense fluffwise in that the skink priests are priests of the slann and not dedicated magic using slayers as such, so their magic would be focussed to that useful in rituals.

    Yeah, it&#39;s fluffy, as skink priests are primarily astrologers, not battlefield wizards. They&#39;re not supposed to be very good at magic, just enough to interpret the prophesies of the slann. Heavens lore also gives the LM some good long-range offensive power, which they can&#39;t get anywhere else (yeah, yeah, except for a stegadon).
    Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely...
    but it rocks absolutely, too&#33;

    I don&#39;t see the problem with Lord of the Heavens. It suits the LM perfectly by giving them long ranged power. The #1 spell is, like lotr88 said, is one of the best in the game too&#33; If you&#39;re looking for magic heavy LM, you&#39;d have to use a Slann anyways, since Skink Priests max out at lvl2. Personally, a lightning spell and Second Sign on a relatively cheap priest is awesome.

    Me neither. I like the Lore Of Heavens very much. But maybe someone thougt it&#39;s ****ed that LM only gets The Lore Of Heavens for their Skink Priests.

    I think that heavans is the best lore out there i have won many a game with my Brettonian army with just the lore of heavans. I think it&#39;s pretty cool that out of the one lore they give you commet of cassondra that spell kicks major arse. Well thats my opinion.

    Peace im out

    the comet does rock. I once won two games in a row versus khornate chaos by dropping a comet of cassadora on the heads of the enemy. both times right on the noggin of the bloodthirster too - the first time actually killed it ... ahh such a climactic ending
