Ok first off your regular Saurus cannot take a magical banner. Now I'll start with your slaan I'd reccomend getting rid of Higher State of Conciousness because hes already protected by a unit of 20 Temple Gaurd and unless you have a catastrophic miscast that should suffice and also brings me to my next point. With the points from HSoC you can get Soul of Stone which will protect you from the times you roll that 2-4.

Your heros look fairly good to me, my only recomendation would be to make him a level 2 if you could find the points.

For Core and special you have to get rid of the banner on your Saurus and use the points to buy more saurus. Also splitting your units into 3 units of 24 will work better than 2 big units, at least in my experience. Skink Skirmishers are decen but you'd probably do better if you got rid of them and bought more Cold One Cavalry because now a unit of 6 just wont cut it because now you cant rely on breaking them on the charge with the new steadfast rule. The Chameleon Skinks are good but if you find they aren;t working replacing them with some Terradon riders will work. The Salamanders are golden.

How are you doing this? Scar Vets have a 50pt magic item limit, the blade of Tzunki is 65 by itself. A nice option here is the sword of the Hornet- Always Strikes First means much more now that you don't strike first on th charge.

Why Soul of Stone? He's already got the Cupped Hands, and takes Lore of Life, and knows all spells. just cast Throne of Vines and you've got an instant 2+ save against miscasts, as well as bonuses to all your Life Spells.
Either stick with HSoC, or Maybe give him Harrowing Scrutiny, making them terror causing (not as good as it used to be, but still nice), or just save your points for more cold ones.

Otherwise I agree with Muffinman, except about splitting up the Saurus- I use Saurus Hordes and they are magnificent, Lots of attacks and the option for reforming and going ultra steadfast whilst you bring your cavalry to the fight. I assume the Skirmish Skinks are screens, rather unnecessary when taking Lore of Life (Throne of Vines+Flesh to Stone or Earth Blood=T8 or 4+ Regen Saurus XD) and other jobs for them can be done by the Chameleons much more efficiently. Take these points and put them into the cold ones. Chameleon Skinks can basically perform the same function as Terradons (war machine hunters), except I reckon Terradons are simpler to use now that they can charge from behind their own units (True LoS FTW!), and they can make a halfway decent Flank charge to support your Saurus. Definitely more cold ones. also consider the Jaguar Standard- makes it much easier to run enemies down. Otherwise a nice, solid list.

Did you know that the word 'salamander' in the Lizardmen language roughly translates as "Just like Jesus, except he's an angry, fiery acid breathing, amphibious Lizard"?

I'd drop lore of life for lore of light with that many saurus.

WS 10, Initiative 10, ASF saurus are scary as hell and turn the rather useless cavalry into the hard hitting unit it should be.

I agree with dropping HSoC if you're using Temple Guard. It's never going to come into use. I'd maybe take the magic res gift or item. This gives you a nice fat 2+ ward vs sniping spels and the TG get a 4+ ward against anything else.

I'll agree with coke123 about Soul of Stone, if you're taking Lore of Life no need for it, just keep casting throne of vines, give him the one that gives Magic Resistance. I personally don't like Saurus hordes because they are very hard to manuver, when they are 6x4 they dish out alot of attacks (18 with HWS and 25 with spears) and are easy to manuver. If you do decide to go with the 2 horde units I'd recomend putting them on either side of your temple gaurd and switch to Lore of Light, you will have a Saurus Battleline that gives you ws10, i10, asf and +1 attack saurus, very deadly in the games I've had so far but I've ran two blocks of 24 saurus and a block of 20 temple gaurd.

personally i find razadorns more reliable than salamanders as they get to stand and shoot aswell as shooting in the shooting phase

Their stand and shoot is particularly good as they get to roll the artillery die twice for the stand and shoot (I believe).

I prefer Salamanders over razordon because of the way templates work now. Also Salamanders are even good at taking on blocks of fairly tough troops because of the -3 they have to armour saves. I'd always take at least 3 salamanders and then put in Razordons after.

You need to sort that Hero out. It's got like 75pts of Magic Items - only Dwarf Thanes are allowed that.
