    Hi everyone,

    I used to play WFB when I was younger, now I pace the realm of WH40K for a quiet long time. With the change of WFB to AoS I want to complete an army again and play with Lizardmen/Seraphon. I have got some miniatures but, to be honest, do not orient so much in AoS yet. So I present my old-new army list and will be pleased if You comment and support my efforts with starting-up. I do not know where I should take the points from so I present it without point compilation (as it was previously said that in AoS there are no points but, to my satisfaction, there really are.).

    10 x skinks with blowpipes
    10 x skinks with blowpipes
    5 x Cameleon Skinks
    3 x Terradon
    1 x Skink Priest
    1 x Skink Starseerer (I read some army lists and forums and extracted that he is quiet good to have one)
    And now some heavy drilling stuff
    Stegadon or a Salamander ? I have got them all but don't know what is most appropriate for a small list.
    I do not like playing with Saurus Regiments so I do not take them into account on purpose.

    Thank You very much for reading and I hope that I will not discourage You. Looking forward for comments!

    Welcome aboard! For this list if you want 1000 points I would take in addition to what you have:
    Shadowstrike Starhost
    Skink Chief as your general
    2× salamanders with 2× handlers
    Or drop the salamanders and take 2 units of 20 skinks.

    But I like the Stegadon better
    So I would take your list add the chief and the Shadowstrike Starhost, and put in the stegadon. it is a gun stompy beast that will give you a bit more hitting power.

    Shadowstrike starhost is neat! I took 6 rippers and watch the world burn... ;)
    Its all about manuver, in a skink army you cant take a punch. But you could deliver one- thats why im suggesting rippers over terradons.

    Alright - so initially summing-up

    Heros:
    Skink Chief (can it be any skink who will be entitled as a Skink Chief? I have some in my army but on GW website the model of Skink Chief is no more)
    Skink Priest
    Skink Starseer (is he much different than starpriest?)

    Basic:
    2x20 Skink Skirmishers (or 2x10 + 2xSalamanders)
    5xCameleon
    3xTerradons (or Rippers)

    Or should I change salamanders into Rippers/Terradons ? Which option is better?

    Thanks You very much for your effort : )

    It is discontinued but you can still find them, or make one skink stand out from the rest. Proxies are usually okay, as long as it doesn't look like a regular troop. if they all pile in together the opponent should be able to tell them apart.
    Also a starseer is a fantastic unit. There is a huge difference . The rerolls, curse of fates is an amazing spell.

    Works better if You use 30 skinks.
