I picked up the new storm of magic book. Looks like it would be a lot of fun. I've been wanting to try out fantasy ever since 8th came out. I figure this might be a good time to dive in. If I buy one box of saurus I can build the following 2k lizardman list.
Slann - Cupped Hands, Ironcurse icon, Higher State of Mind, The Becalming, Unfathomable, Lore of Light
Skink Priest - Cloak of Feathers, level 2 wizard
Scar-Vet - Shield, BsB
16 Saurus Warrior - Shield and Sword, musician, standard bearer
20 Saurus Warrior - Shield and Spear, champion, standard, musician
(2) 12 skink skirmishers
6 Cold One Calv - champion, standard, musician, Flaming Banner
2 salamanders with extra handlers
1 Ancient Steg
Comes out to 2k total. I plan to take the lore of light. For my 500 points of monsters I'm looking at buying a carnosaur and a barebones steg. 100 points left over for weapon. Not sure how it will play but it will look cool. Plus I get to include a carnosaur along with a slann. I figure I would build my slann to go solo and leave the temple guard behind.
As an aside, it seems that if you want to hold a fulcrum with your slann you cannot take temple guard in the army. Rules conflict where the fulcrum only allows a wizard and/or mount to occupy a fulcrum, and that a temple guard must stay attached to a slann if both units are on the board.
