    I had thought that many people were rolling in with Skaven for CCX and so benched a team I made The Barrowrun Blightstalkers for a new Lizardmen team with a whiskey theme. Now it seems that others are having a similar debate.

    I have played four games with the lizards with minimal success and an unpopular idea that I can't seem to make work (thank you pouring rain!). I have also played two games with my skaven (though only one officially as the first game was so bad that I had two deaths, including a gutter runner.. which forced a reboot).
    I won the second game 3-1, and feel I finally have a handle on what Skaven can do.

    and so, I put it you BBTactics members. Lizards or Rats?

    now if only I can figure out how to make a poll... things can get rolling!

    Hard choice... both provide good SPP when I whack skinks and rats... :D

    Don't worry about what others will play... no problem having too few or too many of whatever. Each team/coach is unique.

    I voted Lizards because I think although skaven are easy to win games with, and are one of my favourite teams you will learn more from playing lizards, and a developed lizard team is far more of an achievement than a skaven team, which inherently can do everything it needs to from the word go.

    Lizards give off a vague aroma of orc to me, with all the AV9, high strength, and verdurosity. I voted skaven.

    No vote yet. The Lizards already have a nice match reporter, and they can be quite good with some inducements even against teams of much higher TV. Skavens are more fragile, but their runners are even better than the skinks (but fewer)

    well the vote is currently 4 to 1 for Skaven...

    but I just played a game w/ G20 and it was a nutty one. weird dice. he threw a ton of blocks and removed lots of my guys winning 2-1 but no perm damage and 3 skill ups...

    Sniksnak of Hellpit, gutter runner rolls 5+5
    Ritiki the Nose, gutter runner rolls 5+6
    Kankker of Pestilens, stormvermin rolls 5+6

    KRA-KA-TOA:powdodge:

    the elves also got 3 skill ups... and two of them were also '11s'!

    my brain hurts from all that agility.

    Skaven skillups sound nice. A move 10 runner and an AG 5 runner are both great. AG 4 vermin is less of a given, but is also a nice touch.

    Still voted for Lizzies, just to make it less of a skaven landslide :p

    Just to warn you, that 3-1, keep in mind, that was against me, and I have the most trouble w/ speed teams, cause I like to block in and pound my opponents and close off escape routes, your guys are too dodgy and run to far to effectively close anything off :p

    Wow, those are some magnificent rolls! Go with the Skaven, but don't use the 5+5 for +MV on a Runner. Get Horns instead. You'll learn to chain-push soon enough ;)
