    Wait, why don't they have the Seraphon Keyword? Was that a mistake?

    I hope it is.. else we can only use them
    In combination with the 'Order' keyword...

    The Skink chief command ability also is missing..

    No new abilities and artifacts.. hope they faq this

    We now have to take them as Allies.

    What changes have you guys spotted?

    Swarms now heal D3 without needing to be near terrain.

    If I see it right they aren't seraphon in any way anymore... no keyword, no synergies between them and other seraphon units and no summoning spells for the Slann on their warscrolls... hope we get some replacement for them one day...

    Wait a minute.. they are not Seraphon allegiance ?? What ? How does that make sense ? The moment I found them thought " woohoo there we go, options for the skink leaders " . Wow, are you sure about this guys ? That they have to be allies ??? Ally with a SKINK ?

    It's the missing keyword... non of them has the SERAPHON keyword... and if my information is right this allegiance thing is about keywords... a unit can only be XY-allegiance if it has the XY keyword...

    No they can't even be Allies because SERAPHON can only ally with STORMCAST.

    Taking these compendium lizardmen warscrolls will force us to lose the SERAPHON allegiance and become ORDER.

    If I was a new player to AoS...

    where would I go to find a warscroll for a NON COMPENDIUM unit that does not have a new Battletome? example. Stormfiends?

    Where would I go to find Battallion rules for that particular Allegience? example Skryre?

    I don't think you need to ask that. It's pretty clear they are phasing out many older edition Heros/Units from various armies.

    Yes you can still use them with your Seraphon but your Seraphon become Order Allegiance and who would do that now that Seraphon have awesome new toys to play with?

    Yes. Not to forget the new traits for the General and Seraphon army as a whole.

    They did it intentionally indeed. They pretty much destroyed Dispossessed heroes .. I know that their goal is to have a range of miniatures that doesn't look like any other company but still hurts. The old classic dwarves are lovely in appearance. It's a shame they want them to go..

    Look at Vampire counts. All the Von Carstein are gone,
    HE? goodbye Teclis
    TK? the Whole army is now literally unplayable.

    GW said "Old discontinued armies will still be playable"
    What they were truly saying was "Old discontinued armies will still be playable... but we don't want it".

    So yeah, discontinued lizardmen cannot be legally played with new Seraphon. They don't have the keyword and cannot ally.
