Skink Chief

Primary tabs

Where he hunts, the air is alive with poison darts, fired seemingly from nowhere at all.

In the Lizardmen chain of command, Skink Priests direct their orders to Skink Chiefs. These are Skinks who have been marked for greatness. While the Priests attend to prophecies, it is left to Skink Chiefs to execute orders. It is they who typically oversee patrols, major construction projects and the messenger system. They are aggressive by Skink standards, sometimes riding to battle atop Terradons. It is not their role to sacrifice themselves in battle, however, but rather to spy out intruders, alert the Saurus and then guide them towards the foe. It is they who interpret the complicated instructions - often passed from Slann Mage-Priest to Skink Priest and finally to themselves. Then, in turn, it is they who give orders to the Saurus and the cold-blooded behemoths that make up the bulk of Lizardmen armies.

Ability Description

While Lizardmen may be slow to react due to their cold-blooded nature, this also makes them stoic in battle.


Those who are "slippery" cannot be cornered or pinned - they simply "slip" away…
