    Hello
    I've decided to start playing small Warhammer games. I want to collect a 500 point army, but i'm not sure on what army to choose.

    I want a race that is unique. (such as lizardmen or sumthing, but not anyting human).
    I want an army that is fast and mobile, and one that can take out enemies quickly.

    Could you guys help out?

    P.S. : I am thinking of getting lizardmen (cuz they lok cool), but i don't know if they would be a good army for me.

    P.S. 2: This is a small 500 point army

    Whee!

    Remember that lizardmen can be really fast if you play with the southlands-list. Seeing as you like lizardmen, and that the skinkmodels are better then the saurusmodels, it wouldn't be too bad of a choice.
    I'm not sure wether they're hard to use or not, but I'm leaning towards hard to use, due to their low toughness. Their many many poisoned attacks and 6 movement should give you the upper hand against many armies though.

    Yes, that really sounds like Lizardmen.

    But Maybe you also like Dark elves??

    They are fast, and can hit real hard!!

    You could almost say the same thing for high elves, but if your looking for strength you should go with ogre kingdoms or maybe some sort of chaos list.

    Fast: Elves, Ogres, Slaaneshi Daemons, Bretonnians

    Hard-hitting: Bretonnians, Ogres (Both armies have absolutely devastating charges),

    Slaaneshi Daemons are no slouches either - their mounts are the only things in the whole Slaaneshi list that have Strength 3, everything else is Strength 4 or better.


    So, I&#39;d say Daemonic Legion of Slaanesh or the Ogre Kingdoms. Both require tactics to use and hit quite hard. Slaanesh Magic is one of the best in the game, and in a Daemonic Legion your characters can fly ^_^

    Well, yes...

    They have fliers, fast Skinks, Saurus and especially Kroxigors hit damn hard, and a Slann with a couple Skink Priest attendants will kick major arse in the magic phase.

    You could try wood elves. They are very fast and they are really good at shooting and can really annoy an enemy. Problem is is that they are not the best race to play with as a beginer because they need alot of strategie. Also if it apeals to you there are a few skirmishing units in the army (i always liked skirmishers). but if you were to start them, wiat a little, because the race is being redone.

    I am going Ogre Kingdoms purely for the fact that the models look cool. Also, certain armies will be butter for them .

    Read up on the Orgres,lizardmens weaknesses as well because You need to see which armies are the best against you, and if you like the tactics. There is a good article in the new black gobo on the US website about the OK&#39;s weaknesses.
