What are the advantages and disadvantages of lizard men in warhammer?


I am getting into warhammer and I really want to go with lizardmen so I want to know if they are a good army to go with, and I want to know there advantages and disadvantages.

Lizardmen are, and always have been, a great army. Their troops are varied and interesting, their color scheme is pretty wide open, their tactics scale nicely depending on your skill.

Advantages include: the second-hardest basic troops in the game (only Chaos Warriors are better, and they cost a lot more), the best spellcasters in the game (seriously, Slann are awesome), cheap poisonous troops (skinks), the Cold Blooded rule (they won’t run away much), and of course- Dinosaurs! Lizardmen have a great list of monsters available.

Disadvantages: very little archery to speak of (pretty short ranged), no real fast cavalry, no actual war machines (some of the monsters pretend), and your basic Saurus has an initiative of 1, so he’s pretty much always going last.

Welcome to Warhammer Fantasy, and good luck!
