Welcome to Librarium Online!
There have been a few rumours floating around the web with regards to the Lizardmen and I thought I would share.
Spawnings remain but more units will be able to take them including kroxigors and skink units.
Mazdamundi (Can ride a steggadon.)
Nakai the Wanderer
Oxayotl (model has been sighted for him a while back)
Ten Zlati the herald of Kroak (Is an upgrade for Kroak)
Lotl Botl (Champion upgrade for a skink unit)
Temple Guard no longer to be 0-1 per slann any longer.
Saurus warriors to be about 2 points cheaper.
Saurus Cavalry to be about 4pts cheaper but limited to only one of four spawnings.
Hmm... I've been trying to decide on a new Fantasy army. Maybe if there are some super sweet new minis I'll have to give these guys a shot.
On a side note, I laugh at how I snap to attention every time I see a rumor thread started by JVK. His name seems to lend instant credibility to rumors. Lets hope he doesn't take advantage of this fact
Sounds good man, a friend of mine is a big Lizzie player so I keep him up to date with the latest rumours, and I can trust you!
Cool, cheaper Saurus. And Blessed Spawning of Sotek on KROXIGOR!!
I heard the Slann was getting his own Lore on top of the 8 he can already use.
Vampire Counts-4000 Points
Black Templars-2000 Points
Finally! after all this waiting I can feast on the upcoming revamp. of my favourite army . Though these are only rumours, I'm so totally digging these new changes.
So, when is this happy event? Is it coming out this summer somewhere?
that's something that has always bothered me. Slann are the most powerful magical creatures in the world and yet everyother race besides them has their own lore and not them. c'mon, we should have a lore that is above everyother race's lore and should be called Power of the Old Ones or something like that.
I remember the days when Slann could use High Magic. It would be nice to see them using a more powerful lore of their own. You could use that lore or decide to pick from the 8 normal lores as usual.
Like the sound of bringing Lotl Botl back into the Lizardmen book, and hopefully Mazdamundi gets a model this time.
Also like the sound of a Slann lore!
What I really don't like though is the reduction in points for Saurus. Don't get me wrong, they are overpriced, but I think they went in the wrong direction. If god's were to create a race of killing machines whose sole purpose was to wipe out other races, and many of these warriors have honed their skills over thousands of years, shouldn't they be well and truly the best core fighters in the game?
Saurus are GOOD, that's for sure. Great leadership with cold-blooded, 2 attacks at strength 4 etc. But are they good enough? What I'm basically referring to here, is their absolutely abysmal initiative. Shouldn't we be imagining them more like crocodiles? Maybe they're slow when they're lying around, but they should be lightning fast in combat - just an increase to I3 would work.
Overall I think the thing that would work best for lizzies in general is to make them more pointy - more feral. The skinks work well being cute and cuddly, but the Saurus are killers that hunt their enemies, not rank and file block troops. Some interesting new tactics would work for me.
Saurus need to be better (only slightly), and more expensive.
