With the recent release of the new Lizardmen Army Book I mentioned in a previous post that I had a Lizardmen Warhammer Army in the 1980s. These were (skinny) metal miniatures that were released in a boxed set. Really nice models if I remember rightly, no idea where they are now.
For rules I used the ones from Forces of Fantasy.
Forces of Fantasy was the first published supplement to the Warhammer rules system, it was published in 1983.
My main army intiially with Warhammer were Dwarves and then Orcs.
Games Workshop have released one of their digital guides to painting their miniatures, this time on painting the newly released Lizardmen.
Brightly coloured scales, tarnished golden weapons and yellowed claws are all distinctive visuals of the Lizardmen army. From the markings denoting specific spawnings to the icons of the ancient Slann cities, each Lizardmen force has a unique appearance.
This product contains eleven painting guides for a wide variety of Lizardmen Citadel Miniatures, including, Slann, Kroxigor, Skinks, Saurus Warriors and Temple Guard, allowing you to create an impressive looking army.
Games Workshop have released, as is becoming the norm now, a digital version of their Warhammer Army Book for the Lizardmen.
The Lizardmen army book has all the content of the hardback edition, plus all the features you’ve come to expect from our iPad Editions. Quick-links embedded throughout the book make it a convenient aid to gaming. There’s an interactive miniatures gallery showing off the Lizardmen range, including 360 rotating images of its monsters and character models. Warhammer: Lizardmen will also be automatically updated with any new additions or amendments to the rules including new FAQ’s.
I’ve always liked the lizardmen concept, and I actually had a small lizardman army when I played the first edition of Warhammer back in the 1980s.
