I have rencently (though 2 good trades, a well priced purchase and one donation) come into a "sizable" Lizardmen army
215 Skinks, most are old 1 piece bow carrying, but should be simple to convert to blowpipes or javelins
Slann Priest with 4 Saurus bearers
1 Salamander w/skink handlers
5 jungle swarms
I am about to get the army book through another trade and want to know what I should be after next.
From what I have read so far I am looking for;
2 more Salamanders, some Kroxigors, some Terradons and maybe some character models if I can get my hands on them...
Also I want to know if 1 salamander is a viable/worthwhile choice?
with that many skinks running around, skinks are only good at two things:
1. shields for saurus/other units
2. blowpipes, never forget the blowpipes!
other than the skinks, your starting force looks good
for sallies, get about 2 or 3, with 3 artillery dice worth of hits at s3 and -1as there good against enemy characters and infantry,
try out a few battles and find out what u need next for ur next victory!
going back into contemplation...
Out of interest, what are you trading?
To get that much it must be quite a lot.
Actually, that was the surprising part, I got about 60 skinks, 1 saurus, the slann mage with litter bearers, the 5 jungle swarms and the 1 salamander (plus over 70 skaven models) for $70. Then I traded 30 Dwarfs and a Dwarf Bolt Thrower (the 6th ed one) for 101 skinks and 25 Saurus. The last bit I got from a guy who is getting out of warhammer and who "charged me" a place at the next board game I run at our gaming club.
I've been very fortunate in gathering this scaly host...
You are lucky! An entire army for only 30 dwarves, a blot thrower and $70!
**And those skaven!**
Are they painted and glued? If they are do you think youll have to re-do them? 201 skinks could take a very long time....
I suggest you start a Southlands-themed Lizardman army.
100 Skinks with poisoned shortbows are 700 points... and they nuke everything
Message to GW: Make more ForgeWorld rules official...
Just finished assembling the last of the skinks (and gluing the bodies of the suarus to thier bases (head and weapon arms to follow).
The final count is 272 skinks, 90 Saurus (21 of which I am converting to have scratch build halbers and serve as Temple Guard)
160 of those skinks I took off of thier sprues and glued to thier bases over the last three days, that's 10 feet of skinks....
Wow.... ....that is a LOT of models.....
You know.....If you don't want them all....I would always be happy to take some off your hands. You know that probably takes up a lot of room that you don't have, do you? That means you HAVE to give them to me, yes? No? Ok.
I think you could make 2 armies! Make a Southlands list AND a normal one and try them both out! You could also, if you feel you have too many, you could trade some more for the Lizardmen models you really want, so you don't have to spend more money! Or, (oh God this is exciting!) you could make lots of conversion with all those spare parts! Or, (I like this idea best :shifty: ) you could give them ALL to ME! :w00t: That sounds great! Do that! (Oh, I am a genius, what a great idea! :yes: ).
.....Well I can dream, can't I? No? Ok.

Now that we've established master bungle is indeed mad there is some sanity in his madness. Unless you plan on making a super horde of a southlands list you indeed should try and find some1 to trade some of your skinks for special/rare choices. If you don't want to take ANY of master_bungle's advice, I have lots of space for models
You know, I have several ...other....ideas you can do with them, if you didn't like them that is. One: give them to bungle, Two: melt all of them together and form a massive titan skink, Three: make a 40k skink army, hahah that would be awesome, Four: Run through New York throwing them at people. But if you really wanted to, you could make a list I guess. Just trying to create some diversity in the useage of warhammer!
