Now after the new book, the Lizardmen have got High Magic (the High Elf magic) for their Slann.
They'll six-dice it every turn, so either fuck them up before they do the same to you, or carry a dispel scroll and hope the poncy prick shoves his staff where the Purple Sun doesn't shine.
They currently get no love because of city of heroes patcher their high price, making them one of the less cost-effective cavalry option this edition.
Watch him cry as this orange devil runs around sniping characters until they waste time in killing him- like normal skink but better.They have diverse and extremely powerful monsters, one of the best spellcaster in the entire game and Saurus characters are perfectly designed to destroy enemy lords and heroes in a quick, confusing and bloody fight, all the while riding a T-Rex or a raptor.If your opponent has his mage parked within range of a general/bsb leave this at home.Blowpipes are for the higher BS chameleon skinks.Alternative Opinion: Actually, skink spamming is considered to be a particularly tasty form of cheese, since you can literally flood the battlefield in cheap, fast moving little units with an array of poisoned weapons redirecting, shooting, and irritating your opponent's units to a not-quite-metaphorical death.Old Bloods have a 4 Scaly Skin by default and a lot of attacks before you buy any upgrades.Pretty good for only 4 attacks.Put simply, if the Skink Skirmishers manage to inflict wounds on any unit, your opponent will be compelled to either shoot at it, commit a unit to charge it, or try to ignore the damage they're doing.However; these upgrades are expensive: the Carnosaur alone costs almost as much as a naked Slann., and the figurines themselves are not cheap either.The TG are also undersized so again might another box to get them up to strength.
Well, Banner of Discipline is one option, but that still means 100 magic points left!
The Piranha Blade: Still a little bit expensive but getting now the bonus of reducing enemy armor.
Well, it seems as writers have been slowly changing the way Fear and Terror works, it seems as you cannot have just one model with the ability and everybody else has it (although the BRB says this isn't the case, but newer rulebooks are mentioning.Another take: 300 is a lot of points but think about it, he has two of things as standard most characters don't have: 4 ward built in (45 points from the rulebook) lv4 as standard (roughly a lv3 character is roughly the 185 mark.In summary, Skink Skirmishers are suicide units that force bad tradeoffs for the enemy; they'll die when they're attacked, but its a lose-lose situation, and in the wider context of the battle, leads the opponent to be inefficient with his units.(his special rule says him AND his unit benefit from.Some people (you know who you are) think Lizardmen (and specifically Sauras are a defensive army.Tetto'Eko: The only Skink priest to ride a Palanquin, he is a Level 2 Lore of Heavens Loremaster, can be accompanied by Skinks like Slanns with their Temple Guard and can predict the future.All this pain train for 200 points, oh and its Aquatic for extra lulz.However, many people won't take named characters or spend so many points on a Lord, so the Blade of Realities has very limited uses in competitive play, however, against waac's in friendly games, it's delicious.This auction is for a 5th edition Warhammer Armies Lizardmen codex in very good condition.
