maybe add 2 skinks and split them into 2 groups of 10
you have alot of points spent on your characters i would drop one for more skinks

i run almost a pure skink army they are usefull for droping high toughness models and make great screens for your saurus and what not

The only other lizardmen player I know of plays a near full skink list, and I don't want to have the same kind of list as him. But thanks anyway. I'm not the biggest fan of skinks, they just don't turn me on...

Unfortunately skinks are one of the greatest assets a lizard man player has. I agree with iunno. You've spent a little too much on your characters i would either drop a hero or get your lord down to about 300 to fit in more skinks.

Well Skinks may be great, but I don't want to use them. I want my army to be probably a bit more fluffy, where I use Saurus, who were bred for war, as my main force. Pus I've heard rumours sayingthat they may be making skinks a unit that doesn't count toward your minimum core, so I'm trying to steer clear of it. I'm wanting to play more saurus based than skink.

skinks are fluffy, while they werent bred to be brutal at close quarters they are smart witch allows them to preform roles saurus cant. you dont need to use a pure skink list but they are really worth there points, you dont need to go over board with them but you need enough to support your saurus, take out warmachine crews, lone wizards and they are great against high toughness low save models like ogres

With the new army book coming out in Febuary, I wouldn't make any, ummm, expensive descisions as a lot of things are rumoured to be changing, such as salamanders becoming nowhere near as good, stegs being moved into special. Luckily, saurus get better with an improved save and reduced points cost.
