Default Looking to start a fantasy army.

A friend and I are looking to start fantasy armies sometime late this year. He wants to start Tomb Kings, and I was looking at Lizardmen, as I had some great success with a Mordheim warband from Lustria. However I also play WAR and Chaos seems pretty fun. Can anyone give me a rundown of earch army and what playstyle they all have? Or a link would suffice if anyone has one.

Yay free advertising. It's run by Veq and I help him mod it (supposedly :P).

I'll give you a pix on what they look like it might help you decide. My playstyle usually is non-conformist (anti meta), hard to meta in WFB though, so my help will not aid you.

Within this week I'll post my WFB armies on the Hobby>Showcase>Omegatron.

Um, then come back




The problem with giving you a rundown is that the Lizzy Army book is coming out next month. That being said, what I can tell you about them is that the frogs are much weaker now, being your average run of the mill Lvl 4 spell caster, as opposed to the absolute monsters they once were. The saurus old bloods on the other hand are great CC lords.

Stegadons are really cool, and the Ancient Stegadon takes that coolness and boosts it. Stegadons are pretty much your chariots, but they have a powerful ranged attack. Ancient Stegadons are all that plus 4d6 S3 poison shots, and the ability to stick a skink preist on them and make them into an army supplement, giving boosts and adding magic and such.

Salamanders are cool flamethrowers and Razordons are like hellblaster volley guns, and both seem pretty cool. Skinks have the ability to mix with kroxigors, so they're a bit like beastmen there. They act as meatshields for kroxigors, who can stand in the second rank and still attack. Suarus warriors are pretty strong, but I didn't pay much attention to them.

To learn more about warriors of chaos, read this.
