hello i recently joined the warhammer community when my friend showed me his ogre army i of course liked the gnoblar best and so despite his many warnings i decided on a gnoblar army and ordered some gnoblar (i had to order them as i don't have a local store) however a couple of days ago disaster struck... i bought the warhammer rulebook and within it's pages i found another race... a race so awesome they outstripped even the gnoblar (which wouldn't be that much of a complement on any other forum than this) ... i found LIZARDMEN...
i love them there so great ... but this was a problem, i already had a few gnoblar and i wanted to keep them ... i could have tried customizing them to make lizards but i am not very good at that so i came up with my great idea...
my gnoblar army left the mountains of mourn with there ogre bosses and went to fight in Lustria but when they got there lizardmen killed them.
however many gnoblar surrendered and went willingly into slavery to help the lizards. (they were happy to do this as there new Slann masters never killed them nearly as much as there old ogre masters) later on the slann noticed that a some gnoblar had a talent for being lucky... the slann tried to give there warriors this by using there breeding pools to cross breed gnoblar DNA with there own as well a skink, saurus, krox and even some beasts (like the terradon) it never worked.
all they ever got were strange blue skinned gnoblar (or in the case of the terradon ones green skinned with wings) with different talents. but they were definitely gnoblar. after yet another
failure one Slann got so angry he killed a whole bunch of the little dudes. once he returned to his senses he decided to let all gnoblar stop being slaves (because they were pretty useless anyway) and so the gnoblar were thrown out of the lizardmen's empire. years later, the upgraded gnoblar had interbred with the gnoblar - this resulted in not-as-smart-as-before-but-still-smarter-than-ordinary-gnoblar slann, skinks that could hardly skirmish, weaker saruses and kroxigor and terradon-gnoblar that couldn't fly...
the gnoblar new they were weak and they prayed to the slann as the slann did to the old ones, however like the old ones the slann didn't come back to help there followers. over time the gnoblar started there own primitive city in Lustria and started worshiping the slann as gods...
this is just a rough draft i haven't worked it all out yet
honcho - slann
honcho - skink priest + BSB
fighters - saurus
flingers - skink skirmishers
pigback riders - terradon riders (thats why i made the terradon gnoblar)
boglars - kroxigor
NOTE : these units use gnoblar rules not lizard ones.
ALSO NOTE : i haven't decided on the amount of units in a squad yet...
Sounds really good and apparently from what I have heard with the new rule book you can have aliied armies meaning you could ahve an army half Gnoblar half Lizardmen - this is only hearsay at present though.
Keep us updated.
Sounds great, I can't wait for pics!
