against woood elves and dark elves should i take skinks or saurus ? please write suggestions
skinks screen your units from elven shooting and can shoot back at the elves pretty effectively. Saurus provide big blocks of tough troops to win static combat resolution and provide kills. So I'd say you probably want both skinks and saurus against both foes.
If you could specify your army or your opponents armies we might be able to provide more specific advice.
ok here is my opponents list(dark elves)
4 reaper bolt throwers
2 units of six dark riders
1 lvl 4 wizard
2 lvl 2 wizards
2 units of 10 dark elves warriers with cross bows
some sort of scouts
and guys with dragon cloaks
well, with three rare choices (2*2 Rbt's and a hydra) the guy has to be playing at least 3000 points. unless there are shenanigans... But the rest of the list doesn't look like enough to fill out a 3K army. I'd ask the DE player to check his rules, unless there are a LOT of guys with dragon cloaks (corsairs) or witch elves.
skinks would be amusing to try and poison the manticore and hydra, although they'll probably get killed off fairly quickly. That's ok, they are cheap and expendable.
Saurus would pretty much decimate witch elves and corsairs, they are bigger and tougher, although the witch elf poison will hurt a little.
we were playing 3000 and the scouts were mangel manhime man flares or something like that he had lots of wicth elves and crusaiers
