Ok, my friend is too stubborn to ask for any help with his Tomb Kings so im gonna do it for him. we are playing 1000pt games and he has the Battalion set, three Ushabti, Prince, two Priests(one mounted), two Swarms, and a Catapult, and because we are only playing 1k he cant field it all of course. I have won 5/5 games we have played and he is starting to get pissed off.
Now could anyone tell me how he could use that force of his to beat my Lizardmen. Two Vets(one mounted), two Priests, two blocks of 16 Saurus, and two screens of 10 Skinks.
personally against an army like that i would only field the swarms against the saurus for their poison attacks. use both priests, give the one on foot the cloak of the dunes, and the mounted one staff of ravening for the skinks mainly. use the ushabti as hard hitters against preferably the veterans. use 10 archers to get rid of the priests, and as many skellies with La/Sh/Hw as you have left points (i haven't checked the points totals for this).
Perhaps a bit off topic, but it might have to do with his chances:
How are you fielding two scar veterans and two skink priests? That comes to four heroes...
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains
I'm not fielding them, im just telling you everything i have to choose from when im going into battle, along with his, we are not using everything i listed because it would obviously be breaking some rules.
SSC is a Must, aim at the Saurus with it. Prince with Collar and GW should so, Hiero with Cloak, and Priest with SoRav on Steed to take aim at the Skinks.
Ushabti should tear through the Saurus in combat, just be sure to get the charge, some goes for Chariots so which to use is his choice, or both is he uses Light Cav for core and makes the Core slots cheap.
The above (Prince, LP(H) LP, 3xCh, 3xUsh, SSC, 5LCav, 1ScSw) Fits nicely at around 950pts.
I've played against Lizardmen numerous times against my friend and he is a challenging foe. The LM army list is practically flawless. I've lost at least a dozen times to him but my first 10 games were played against him. the SSC is a great weapon against sauras blocks IMO. Use ranged against the skinks and make sure you got the nearby trees covered if he decides to plant them there. Anyways everything else that has been said are great suggestions. GL
