    Hi guys i`ve just started planing my 8th edition warhammer lizardmen and i`ve decided I like the lore about the Zlatlan southlands temple city and am making a force based on that idea (as in lots of skinks no saurus), its an 1000 point force(i`m will be playing with a friend) and here is what i came up with also we decided we are not going to do the "at least 25% core up to 50%...." and so on we would just take what we wanted up to 1000 points:

    Heroes
    Tiktaq`to

    skink priest lvl 1 lore of beasts

    skink priest lvl 1 lore of heavens

    Core

    skink cohort 21x skinks + brave + standard

    Special
    teradon riders 5x

    bastilladon

    Rare
    salamander 1x

    i think thats it

    thanks TheMagePriestOfZlatlan

    looks like a fun list,
    I suppose one of the priest is going to be your general ?

    Oh and, welcome to Lustria by the way.

    thanks, I thought maybe Tiktaq`to as my general or a skink priest, would tiktaq`to be too vulnerable while he is strafing the enemy units?

    Welcome aboard! There are lots of resources here for 8th, might need to dig a bit, but there is quite a good tactica.

    Ok so i read in the rule book that the lord or hero with the highest leadership is your general so that would make Tiktaq`to my general because he has 7 leadership and the skink priest has 6 is that right?

    Agreed. Lots of good stuff on the Southlands.

    I also really love the Southlands map, I think from one of the rulebooks.

    And what are the things like the golden tower of the gods, the temple of skulls and the temple avenue of gold?

    I am betting they are random place-holders for the artist who didn't want to take the time and create lizard-maya-Aztec-inca sounding names for the locations.

    No clue what the fluff behind them actually is, so it leaves plenty of room for fan fluff filler!

    I am betting that at least two of them have gold, and one of them skulls...

    Belated welcome to the forums!

    Always like to hear about more people playing 8th edition. I will play Age of Sigmar but I like 8th edition best.
