Warhammer: Leaked Lizardmen Photo or Bullsh*t?
Rumoured to release in August, the Lizardman Army book is causing all type of rumours:Trolling the net with my own observations:
I would expect monstrous cavalry ? Carnosaur riders on the horizon ?
A "giant dinosaur kit" (bigger than the Carnosaur ? )
New plastic "Terradon" kit -Bastidon: about the same size as the High Elves Phoenix (Terrordon? )
Couatl (may be the alternative build for the "Bastidon" kit)
- see I told told you, a giant flyer! The latest GW refrain?
Finecast Slann and Carnosaur
Sacred Spawnings are back
New plastic carnosaur (singular); as well, or just finecast?
It may also be the first time in 8th Edition (to date) that a character will be able to ride the same monstrous beast as a unit in its army ?
Slann now becomes a multi-part plastic set - availability for a Relic Priest (Kroak, including Deathmask), a normal Priest, and a special limited edition plastic combination pack (similar to the Exalted Daemon Chariot) that combines a Stegadon and a Slann Priest to recreate Mazdamundi. In addition, they get access to Disciplines, but these may not be taken more than once. Reading into rumours suggests that Slann have Loremaster
All Saurus armies become "viable" thanks to the return of Sacred Spawnings - units can purchase Sacred Spawnings like a Mark of Chaos, while characters get access to them off the bat.
One will allow them to join Temple Guard units, others will give benefits to specific units, like Magic Resistance or Devastating Charge (Sotek?), while others (like Itzl, or whatever the Cold One Riders are), are already included within their stats.
Razordons and Salamanders become a Dual part plastic Monstrous beasts + handler kits, 2 Monsters and 6 Handlers to a set.
Couatl model - working like a Terrorgheist in that it can be both a mount (rumours are to be available at sub-200 points to allow 2 to be taken for heroes in 2400 games) and a monster, presuming rare.
The Stegadons become special choices as well, with a unit "upgrade" to Ancient stats, and a weapon "upgrade" to didgeridoo blow-darts.
Skink Priests gain access to Beasts as well as Heavens. In addition, Skink Priests may become "attendants" to a Slann - basically I read it as a Skink Priest option allowing it channel the same Lore the Slann itself knows. Reading into that suggests that Slann have Loremaster as standard.
The return of the Arcanadon - one thing that every non-lizard player is going to hate, a pokemon venusaur/stegadon crossover which takes in solar power to create a blast of magical light, in the form of a cannonball/stone thrower/flame cannon/breath weapon monster. Although nothing concrete about the presumed dual nature of the kit, it could possibly be a much "wanted" Thunder Lizard capable of making thunderstorms.
(I think this bit unlikely)
Apparently Nakai will return - an apparently unbreakable "autohealing" monster non-general hero choice.(This is more likely)
Picture turned up Trolling:, probably unrelated to the actual release? Or who nows?
