Welcome to Librarium Online!
Im stuck here, i cant decide, ive finnaly narrowed the armies i want down too two, can someone please post the pros and cons for both armies, and the thing that is really kinnda pulling me away from lizard men is that i cant think of some really fun scenarios with them. now keep in mind i have never seen either army book and only know what i read on LO. What army is a better begginer army, what army has better magic.
thanks in advance
Lizardmen are a beginners army,they rock and wont let you down. Some will argue their magic is better but i think O&G magic is ALOT better due to them getting extra power dice for units in combat and getting their own lore which happens to be devestating.
O&G, that's what you should start (what, me biased, never!. Why? Great magic and a great variety of units to choose from and you can vary your playing style as you see fit. Either trundle up and smash with orcs or choose to maneuver and be tricksy with goblins, your choice. Lots of funny mishaps too, which makes the journey all the more fun!
The iron crowned is getting closer,
Swings his hammer down on him,
Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
Down the Noldor's proudest king.
Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.

When you have an army that is a simple beginners army with O&G, they still have the variety to give you something completely new when you want to play a bit more advanced.
And how can anyone resist the conversionpossibilities?
I'm not biased either --
Oh noooooo, of course I'm not biased either. I disagree that Lizardmen are a beginner army though, both these forces can be fielded in very different ways, they have a lot of variety. (though there is no army which has more variety than O&G, except dogs of war)
I kill two dwarves in the morning, I kill two dwarves at night. I kill two dwarves in the afternoon, and then I feel allright. I kill two dwarves in time of peace, and two in time of war. I kill two dwarves before I kill two dwarves, and then I kill two more.

O&G are incredibly fun and random to play with, but Lizardmen are rock hard and have powerful magic. But in the end Id settle for O&G because of their wacky style.
