Default Blow pipes......not enough of them!

I just got a box of skinks(and a skink priest and a box of saurus if youe wondering.),and I want to deck them out with all blow pipes (im still not definet on that.) and they only gave me 20 and I get 24 skinks. Whats up with that? I need more blow pipes!

If your not sure about the Blow Pipes try this link
http://www.pyramidvault.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=488

I'm sure RedDog will approve.

I am wanting to start a Lizardmen army so I have been doing some research.

I have the battalion box but have yet to put a single Lizard together. I am doing some research into the Blow Pipe/Javelin thing and the link is a great Sticky on it.

So far I think I may go Javelin, not Blow Pipe.

If its a sprue your missing, Call GW and they may replace it. Other than that, the four your missing just may be for Command which will not have blow pipes.

You are NOT missing any bits, they just don't have enough of pipes. I never faced that problems as one of my units carries Javs&Shields. Unfortunately that's the way it is... You are not going to have 24 blow pipes in a box.

And the debate on pipes Vs Javs is OLD.

For me it comes down to this ->

Pipes Vs rank and file, on scouts, Vs monsters(large targets!)
Javs Vs Skirmishers. (they can still spit at R&F or Monsters, just not as efficient)

I use both. The once that don't scout usually use Javs, the once that do, usually use pipes.
That's my take on it anyway.

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!

I've have decided to change the units(one units javs & one unit blowpipes scouting). I'm expecting to get some kroxigors, so I would expect javelins to do better screening them. Well off to build my skinks.

at the end of the day, i prefer Blowpipes for the sole reason that with them i have managed to take down three giants in the first turn pf the game using nothing but the lowly skink
