Soooo which is better to field? The Skinks are almost 3 times cheaper but the Chameleon skinks have an extra -1 to hit, a BS of 4 and can deploy in front of enemies...
7 pts as compared to 15 is only two times cheaper, but either way I think that chameleon skinks are much better. the simple reason is that they can deploy into cover right next to an enemy warmachine or mage, and blast him to heck. then the enemy will never be able to hit them with ranged weapons, and (hopefully) it'll take them two turns to get at you for a charge.
I agree that cameleons are better (and therefore more expensive), but I'll go for the normal skinks. Use them in big units (15-20) and go out hunting with them. More than once they have brought down units without armour (giants, ratogres ..).
The cameleons are better suited for character hunting when 7th edition arrives (can't hide wizards beside units). They're also good against enemy skirmishers and cannon crew.
I field both, i have to say though when it comes down to it, a unit of ten or so chameleons can be really useful.
So i think i'm gonna opt for the chameleons this time
I also take both Stonehambey but also agree that chameleons are superior, the extra -1 to hit is so good against most armies crap bs
PS...Since when did Giants have armor!!!Originally Posted by Rex
also with with arrival of 7th edition scouts can deploy in the open, crazy.
Peace, lurks in the Jungle...
