OK, so what's a good composition for a 2000 point not-Lizardmen ( ;) ) army, beyond the compulsory units?

Given that you're limited to 6 basic units (excluding Stegadon), I guess take 2 x Terradons and max out on Salamanders but then what? Mixed brigades of Skinks/Saurus? Are Kroxigors/Temple Guard worth taking, or are you better off with more basic infantry to boost the break point? Cold One riders are an expensive strike force, how many would you take?

There aren't really any mid-cost units, it's either cheap Skinks and expensive "others".

Given the limited command range, max out on characters?

 210 - 6 Skinks
300 - 4 Saurus
220 - 2 Temple Guard
75 - 3 Salamanders
270 - 2 Kroxigor
280 - 2 Cold One Riders
85 - 1 Terradons
250 - 1 Stegadon
95 - 1 Slann Mage Palanquin
45 - 1 Saurus Hero
140 - 2 Skink Hero
30 - 1 Skink Shaman
----------------------------------------------------------------
2000 - 18/9

This is the kind of thing I'm going for simply because those are the units I have. =-P

Basically I have 1 too many temple guard and a couple of spare skinks so I'm going to try and push it towards 3000 points at some point.

I've played against Lizardmen a couple of times, the Stegadon + carnosaur is brutal.

The short command radius forces you to stick together, which is good, as you keep all your troops together.

Mine is going to look like this:

Lizardmen Army, 2000 points
Warmaster Armies
----------------------------------------------------------------
 210 -  6 Skinks
 375 -  5 Saurus
 220 -  2 Temple Guard
 100 -  4 Salamanders
 560 -  4 Cold One Riders
 170 -  2 Terradons
  95 -  1 Slann Mage Palanquin
 210 -  3 Skink Hero
  60 -  2 Skink Shaman
----------------------------------------------------------------
2000 - 19/10

Max out Cold Ones cause its the only cavalry the Lizardmen have.  I'm unsure on the number of Skink Heroes though.

They are all ready for production right now. Eureka will be putting them up on their webstore very soon. If you can't wait until then, you can email Eureka and organise a purchase by email...a couple of people have already done this. I have mine :)
