A rumble in the jungle

For #ATO9G, I’ve decided to start a new force and went for Lizardmen.

The Lizardmen Battalion is pretty good value so I’ve started with that. I’ve started work on a regiment of 20 Saurus Warriors and will have my test lizard finished this weekend, and I’m hoping to start rolling it out across the other 19 next week. He is going to look good!

The leader of the Lizardmen will be the epic Mazdamundi! This a kit/toy bash with a dodgy photoshop banner in place, looks rough at the moment, but should be a good centre piece for my army.

A test game for the lizardmen

Tried a double saurus block supported with 2, lvl2 skinks on beasts with 2 bastiladons and a trog. Never got the perfect combo off, Leo was smart enough to block and pick off stuff. Think it can still work, just need more chaff and maybe the one block of saurus. Steg did go though.

Here’s some work in progress shots of a couple more hero/lord models for the lizards.
First up is an idea I’m testing of putting a cheap skink chief BSB in a command an control bunker unit that sits behind the big blocks of saurus…

Then for some real punch we have a Old Blood Lord with the steg helm and piranha blade, stood on top of a regular enemy…

Test game for terrain

 

This week we had a game, testing the following:

Use of the new Port of Sophia gaming boards.

Will the transition from jungle to the coastal empire port town look ok?

Simple Ustream setup with Iphone as camera.

A first roll out with High Magic for my Lizards.

 

DCIM100GOPRO

Plus a simple fly by with the GoPro. Need to slow this down a bit and look at the wobble. Plus need some more light…

Overall the setup test was good and learnt loads. Magic-wise – not so much the dwarves brought every anti-magic tool in the box and completely shut down my magic phase. Even failed to 6 dice monkey an important spell 3 times!!

 

Exciting about using this proxy for the Forgeworld monster – Dread Saurian. This is a toy lizard man from the toy company Papo. The little guy next to it is a regular 28mm lizardmen sauran…
