Default Lizardmen army

I want to start fantasy sooner or later and i want to be lizardmen. I want to play them because they look really cool and theres the new campaign coming up involving them. What are your suggestions on what to buy and how to play fantasy and the lizardmen? Is fantasy kind of like 40k?

No, Fantasy is much more about making what you have, count. Attacking is less important then where you attack, and who you attack. Stay away from Undead.

Tis true. Fantasy is a much harder game. Lizardmen have some good skirmishers, like the chameleons, and skinks. I'd suggest buying the army boxed set and the rulebook for starters. Then after you're done building them play a few games and then alter you're list to you're fighting style. Hope that helps.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

Oh, And I personally would steer away from Slann. True, they ar epowerful, but they are also expensive. A Saurus Lord on a Carnosaur is much more likely to gain its points back.

I play Lizardmen, despite my lack of a rulebook. If you want to have a ridiculously powerful mage you can bring a Slann, but you will find yourself spending alot of time protecting him. Help if I knew how magic worked in WHFB... >.

if you play lizardmen make sure you don't just stock up on saurus warriors they are easily out maneuvered and arekilled easily by anyone with a few fast units,
get skinks because there cheap and maneuverable and chameleons who are the same as skinks but their blow darts have the poison effect (no save on a 6 to wound),
riders are one of the most useful parts of your army being both strong and fast and a small unit can amount many attacks because the mounts attack too.

do not get slann he is useful in some cases but he is usually not worth the amount of points he costs, my favourite choice is the saurus lord on the carnosaur, which is expensive and should only be used in large scale games but completely worth it, because he is very strong and so is his mount.
that's all the advice I have and i suggest buying the army box as well
good luck with Lizardmen
