    Hi all,

    If you saw my thread over on the Army Lists forum, we had a fun 2500 pt tournament here in NE USA. So if you live in NY, NJ, PA, MD, even VA or MA - send me a DM and be a part of the next one!

    Back to this tournament though. Due to a previous conflict, I could only get 2 games in, as opposed to 3. No matter: The Lizards were ready.

    Here's my list: http://www.lustria-online.com/threads/another-tournament-approaches-2500-pts.23776/
    Though I did give the skink lvl 2, and dropped some TG.

    Game 1:
    Opponent: Skaven
    His list included a horde of 18-19 (!!!!!!) Rat Ogres and 1 Abom. The rest were some Jezzails, Clanrats and Stormvermin.
    Pre-Game Thoughts: I've played very little against Skaven and when I have, if it's been mostly Doomwheels, and blocks and blocks of rats. I've never faced Rat Ogres, or an Abom. And I feel that as a Dwarf (my other main army), I'd know how to deal with them. With Lizards... well, not so much. I also didn't realize until Turn 2 that they had no armor and until after the game that they had Frenzy. That would have made a big difference - but oh well. you only learn after you play a game sometimes.

    Game Report:
    Essentially, I distracted, re-directed the Rat Ogre block because they were coming at me moving 12'' each turn and would dish out something like 50+ attacks (and they were accompnied by a warlord on bonebreaker with like 100000 attacks). I tried to get the Stormvermin and the Abom instead. I succeeded with the Stormvermin, but failed to take out the Abom. The magic was saved. When I fetched a fireball, I got a bad roll of dice and was dispelled twice. My Cowboy attempted then to do his thing, but was eaten alive by the Abom.

    Final Score was: Dead cowboy + dead skinks + dead Cowboy Cold one bus + sknk priest that blew himself up and went on vacation in the warp vs his Stormvermin. So I lost 12-8.

    Game 2:
    Opponent: Warriors of Chaos.
    His list included 2 fat blocks of Warriors of Khorne and Tzeentch, 1 Chaos Knights, 2 dogs, 1 chimera, 1 lord on manticore. (or maybe it was a manticore and lord on chimera - can't remember) and the always unkillable Demon Prince of Nurgle.
    Pre-Game Thoughts: I hate that unkillable lord.

    Game Report:
    Got a little lucky at times here but his BSB in the Tzeentch group took a dangerous terrain test and failed every single possible ward save by rolling three 1s in a row. Next turn, I Arcane Unforged him, and killed him.
    The Skink Priest made up for his 1st game and threw a very well timed Comet of Cassandora that took out about half of the Warriors on each group. Then, the Slann put Fiery Convocation on the Khorne warriors. With a little re-direct, by the time they even made into combat, there were 2 left. My Saurus block took out the Tzeentch depleted block, and then took out an already depleted Chaos Knight gorpu of 5. (one fell to dangerous terrain, the other to my Chameleon Skinks).

    The Cold one bus first charged the Chaos Lord on Chimera(or manticore) and the Cowboy somehow attached 2nd, survived a total of 12 attacks at him, and swung back to wound the mount, win combat by 3, and force the Chaos Lord to run. Which the team caught up to and killed.
    Then, they were so excited, they went and charged the flank of the lone Chimera(or manticore) and not only did they bounce, they essentially all proceeded to die due to the 4+ regen of the best, and bad armor saves.

    While all this was happening, the Deamon Prince killed my EotG and more than half of my TG unit.

    Final Score: he had his Deamon Prince and lone Manticore, but I had destroyed most of the rest. I had SAurus, Slann, half og TG group and 1 skink group. Lizards won 12-8.

    I finished 4th out of 8 players. Winner was Ogres, followed by Skaven guy that I played against, and another Ogres player.

    Congrats on making it to #4!

    Pretty crazy that two ogre players were in the top three. And that the other was also basically an ogre list, but with rats

    Yea - I guess nobody was ready to deal with big multi-wound units. Speaking of... what's the best way of doing that with Lizards? Stegadon with sharped horns is okay, but that's only if you get the charge. Skinks won't take that down quickly enough and magic, even fiery convocation will only do 1 wound per turn. Ideas?
