    The last time I visited this site was three years ago when I was restart my Lizard army (the first one went the way of the thief). Anyway, I bought a bunch of models, assembled them and then had to put them into storage never having had the chance to see them on a table top. Now I have that chance and I would like some thoughts on the list.

    First off the models I have are:
    56 Saurus
    48 Skinks
    10 Temple Guard
    1 Bastiladon
    3 Terridons
    3 Razordons
    8 Cold ones
    1 Stegadon
    1 Carnisaur
    1 CO BSB
    1 1 dismounted sarus character
    2 Priests

    Me and my opponent have agreed that Stand-ins are acceptable so I'll have a couple Salamanders in the list that I don't have the models for. I will be fighting O&G and can expect either Grimgor or a Wyvern, Arachnarok, a couple doom divers and a 100 block of Night Goblins with nets, plus other orc-y stuff.

    My list

    Lords: 481
    Old blood- Armor of Destiny, Crown of Command, Luckstone, Great Weapon, Carnisaur, Bloodroar

    Heroes: 434
    Scar-Vet- BSB, Cold one, Dawnstone, Glittering Scales, Great Weapon
    Priest- LVL 2, dispel scroll
    Priest- lvl 2 Cube of Darkness

    Core: 611
    41 Saurus- Music, Standard, HW/Shield
    2x 10 Skirmishers- jav/shield

    Special: 540
    Bastiladon- Vanilla
    2x 3 Terridons
    5 Cold ones- F/C

    Rare: 334
    Ancient- Sharpened Horns
    Salamander- xtra dude

    Unless I did my math wrong somewhere that is exactly 2,400 pts. Thoughts?

    I'm thinking a denied flank deployment.

    Sounds like a great plan,
    oh don't forget you have to choose lores for your priest,
    I suggest beast on one and heavens on the other one.

    Thanks. We'll see how it goes. Lizards are allot different than my Skaven. Far fewer.

    As for the priests that's what I was thinking, one with Heavens the other with Beasts.

    It's only Star-Lord but thanks for the ego boost.


    The old fluff about the war between the Old Ones and C'tan was pretty epic. Grudge match against Necrons.

    Agreed. I played Necrons back in the day and I loved the old fluff (before Matt Ward "altered" it :shifty:).

    So did I. Necrons were my intro to the warhammering world. I still remember when I first bought the Lizardmen book, read the fluff and realized my first army was creates to hunt down and destroy any thing made by the gods that created my second army.

    ...and the Old Ones "mysteriously" vanished.

    Same thing against guard. However Basalisks and Leman Russes were a bit of a problem.

    My buddy was really good at guess ranges. He ran old school Valhallans so mortars, mortars, mortars.
