So how did it go?
Very good I would say, as I won two of three matches. But I would call it more of a beginners luck than anything else.
I was able to borrow some units so my army of 998 points consisted of:
Scar-veteran - light armour, shield and Burning Blade of Chotec.
16 Saurus warriors - full command.
15 Saurus warriors - musican and standard
10 Skink skirmisher
10 Skink skirmisher
and finally a Skrox unit with 2 Kroxigors and 18 Skinks(one musician).
First match against Tomb Kings: I think it was an even match until the last turn when I managed to wipe his army. It ended in a decisive victory somehow. Another note of that match was that I was very lucky with my parry saves.
Second match against Warriors of Chaos(Nurgle): This was also a even match and ended with a victory for me. But it could have been a completely diffrent outcome if my opponent didin’t blow up his wizard and some chaos warriors with him in turn 1. Also the trend of luck on parry saves continued.
Third and final match against High Elves: I got demolished and barely scratch him, atleast it felt like that. Wasn’t as lucky this time around.
Overall I’m extremly happy with my performence and looking forward to next time we have a small tournament.
A to buy list for next time:
- Salamanders of my own as they were fun to use.
- Skink priest as I want to test some magic.
- More Saurus warrios and Skinks.
- Maybe some Kroxigors if my wallet allows it.
Motivational challenge and other stuff
Pledge for May will be 5 skinks with handweapon and blowpipe.
It will only be five of them because with the pledge of april it felt like I had to rush it in the end. By doing this I hope that it will lead to better quality and that I don’t have to feel that I have to repaint some of it.
In other news, I will participate in a smal tournament against some friends this weekend. It will be with a maximum of 1000 points. As I don’t have 1000 points yet I will borrow some units from a friend. I don’t expect to win it but hopefully I will win atleast one game.
Pledge for the month of april: done!
The ten Saurus warrios are done and here are the results:
I’m sort of happy with the result except for the banner as I didnt know how to paint it and I will probably repaint it at some point.
Let’s see what the month of may has to offer
Edit: How nice of me to not take a picture of the saurus back…. so here is another picture
Pledge for the month of april
For this month my pledge will be ten Saurus warriors. Three of them will be a Saurus Champion, Musician and a Standard bearer.
As for now they all look like this and unlike with the saurus oldblood/scar-veteran I will paint everything before I put it together.
So challenge for march is done:
The scales on his right leg got a little messed up as I tried different painting schemes on it, other than that I’m satisfied with the result.
Had a game of warhammer this friday against a friend. I played my lizardmen and he played as the tomb kings.
I won by a large margin as he only killed two of my saurus warriors and 10 temple guards. Two of my cold one cavalry died but that was because of that I charge through woods. While I managed to wipe him out. To be fair though I was very lucky with my rolls, especially with my charge with my saurus warriors as I manage to kill eleven skeleton warriors plus his lord in an challenge. And he failed with things that could have make it alot harder for me to win. I would have done a more detailed report about the match but I will try to do that in my next match.
Things I have learned about the lizardmen:
- I love Saurus warriors. As they hit hard and can take hits rather well.
- Skink skirmishers are better then regular skink, in my opinion.
- I really like the Cold Blooded rule as it is alot easier to succeed with leadership rolls
-I’m not really sure that I like the temple guards that much. I think that they are good but I rather have one more saurus warrior squadron. Have to test them more tho.
-Cold one cavalry, I don’t really know if I like them but I will have to test them more.
- Scar veteran, can’t say much about him except that I like him.
So far I like almost everything about the lizardmen. I would like to try a skink priest out so I can test some magic.
Challenge for March - A New Beginning!
This month will be special because I have decided to start play Warhammer fantasy. I was choosing between Warriors of Chaos or the Lizardmen and after some time arguing with myself I choose Lizardmen.
So I bought the starterbox and a Saurus oldblood this week. I will start slowly by only painting the Saurus oldblood for this month and hopefully a squad for the next but we shall see:
February challenge is done!
And we shall see what the month of march has to offer…
A little late perhaps but it’s here now…
These two french medium bombers will be my february challenge
