Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey Im new here but I used to play warhammer a fair old while ago. I bought the bretonnian and lizardmen box set.
I was just thinking about re-starting my lizardmen army. I havent painted anything yet and have loads of skinks (with shortbows) and a fair few saurus. I am a student = no money and so cannot afford armies book until I am sure about starting lizardmen.
I was just wondering what were the basic point costs for all the troop types and heroes as well as some magic items. I want this so I can make an army list and then buy exactly what I need (hence saving money).
Just wondering if anyone could help me out.
We can't post points costs I'm afraid - it's a very direct breach of GW's copyright.
But generally you'll find that most units are cheaper in terms of points than they were back in 5th ed.
I'd suggest that you get your hands on a copy of the current Lizardmen army book and work from there. Optionally, download army builder from wolflair, it will have all the points costs in it - and the trial version is free.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
Ooops sorry I didnt realise that, my bad. I do apologise, Ill look up the army builder thing as that seems pretty cool.
Beware of the army builders,
They are notorius for allowing armies that are in actual fact illegal....
The very best course of action is to purchase the lizardmen army book as Rork suggested,
Follow this link for a bit of info on the lizardmen if you need help making up your mind,
Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that, who cares, your a mile away and you have his shoes!!

Why is it that every young person is afraid to spend money on an army book, pick up the army book and look up all the points cost for the things you want, it's the cheapest way to go about an army, this way you don't buy a ton of models and find out you can't use them or you don't like them.
If you end up not liking the army you still have the book for fluff and lizardmen rules.
12 pound could get me dinner for a week (if I shopped right) and with only a student loan, all bank receipts beginning with a minus, and no source of income I have to be prudent. If I buy a Â£12 army book, then decide on another army ive spent Â£24!!! That could get me a cheap flight to the Costa Del Sol!!! Or a textbook (at least a quarter of a text book) that I need for my course. Yes they are a very good read and yes they are full of interesting fluff and yes they are useful for tournements where you can plan against any foe. But they cost Â£12!!! I used the Wolflair army builder for my army list (Oldie Newbie army list) and that cost me precisely Â£0. I say that if I could afford it I would get every army book that came out because I love reading them, but I (aswell as many other students) can't afford it.
Sorry to rant, its not against you I just got a bit carried away, no offence meant.
right, another student here...
surely, (an i hope i dont get lambasted for this), you could pop into a gw an have a short sit down with the lizardmen book an make a mental note of the basic troop costs, while claiming to be looking at the fluff or the artwork or something like that....
12quid can get you 120 cans of sommerfield spaghetti in tomato sauce, that'll feed you for a month...:w00t:
also, as much as i enjoy the hobby, there are better things to do at uni...
Go into your nearest GW store. Pick up their open copy and look through it.
If you have friendly staff then copy down any notes like points costs or whatever.
If they are tight do it anyway but a bit more discreetly.
Check out my Codex: Farmyard Animals here!
If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
yea i must agree with the outrageous costs of GW products (i like most other people is a student as well at uni), but there are other, cheaper ways to collect and use the current edition rules,
i have, and will still have the 5th ed mini's of lizzies and still play games with them! and find the rules wherever i can, usually from kids who play the game and got bored within twenty minutes and ended up selling their armies and rules, and the good thing is its cheap! (the way it should be )
i got the Current Ed. Rulebook for Â£10! sneaky
all you need to do is be at the right place at the right time, Ebay is a good place to start...
Good Luck and Welcome back!
