Default Race under construction.

For a while now Ive been trying to design a 40k race somewhat based around the Lizard men...but stat wise Im still at a slump. I do have a little bit of fluff, and the reason I post is because I would appreciate suggestions on types of units.

I plan on constructing this race for a campaign Im arranging and I wanted the battles to be more interesting by having a native race who fights the invaders as they all vie for dominance.

Really nice...I like the stat lines and most of the special rules and gear..weapon wise, I was thinking on making them a little more technologically developed. Thanks for the input.

A friend of mine who plays Tau fields warhammer Lizardmen as auxiliaries for his armies. He treats them just like Kroot though, so some different rules might be interesting.

Designing a whole new army is a really daunting task. Try making them as a unit for an already existing army first and build on that.

This needs to be in house rules.


I like the idea. Maybe looking into the Tyranid codex may help?

definitely.
I really like the idea of this, and Gnome is pretty good at creating 'new' armies. I like it how it is not too complex, but still allows for variation. Good luck in your campaign!!
