Welcome to Librarium Online!
Trying to get my friend into Warhammer, and he said that if he did, he'd collect Lizardmen, mainly to paint them. So, in a bd to try and convince him to collect them, I have this question:
Why collect Lizardmen? Why do you think they're the best army in the game of Warhammer?
I'll keep you updated on how it goes.
Thanks in advance,
Because they're dinosaurs. How much cooler than that can they get?
But they also have the most powerful magic user in the game and have some amazing close combat units.
Ask me something about Warhammer: Age of Reckoning.
I think Master of Sanctity hit the nail on the head there.
Lizardmen just have that 'cool' factor about them (insert bad joke about cold blood)
Plus how can you turn down the fat frog?
And the Aztec subtheme is pretty cool also.
Every race (barring humans) gets their own magic list but the Lizardmen have to choose random spells from the humie lists.
Come on! We taught the Elves how to caste spells for crying out loud. You'd think Gdub would have given us High Magic at the very least?
If they could choose the spells from different lists as appose to rolling that would be something but the more lists you roll on the greater your chance of ending up with the default magic missile spell at the start of the list.
Consider that all the races have their choice of one or two of the Lore lists PLUS their own race-specific list I just feel that the Slann get shafted.
I can't possibly be alone in this opinion?
Edit: From a gaming perspective I've given up complaining and just shrug my shoulders and get on with it but from a fluff perspective I'm still bitter.
I quite like the base spell magic missiles. A 2nd Gen Slann can cast all of them comfortably on one dice(Y)
So he can turn 6 power dice into about 11
But from a fluff perspective i think you have a valid point
Comparitively the slaan have more magical freedom than any other race...
True other races get 2-3 lores from the common lores and their own but this only creates a total of around 4 lores to choose from. The slaan can use 7!! And if they so choose they can use up to 5 of them at the same time!!
Personally i would like to see the rules for lord mazdamundi written up...it says he is the oldest and most powerful living slaan alive, he would be even bigger than kroak!!
Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that, who cares, your a mile away and you have his shoes!!
Chuck Norris invented water
to me the cavalry and kroxigor are what make the lizardmen so cool. the CoR are dinosaurs RIDING dinosaurs! and the kroxigor are like gigantic man-aligators, which is possibly as cool as dinosaurs (don't kill me! I only said possibly!!!)
