I cant remember the specifics of all of these games but I do know that we are having a lot of fun playing them and we are actively trying to get better, Sean is a tough nut to crack.

GAME REPORT(pics unrelated)
The last game Ryen and I played he won 2107-1782 wasteland warriors vs lizards. I started out strong taking out a unit of plague warriors with his general with a skink captian on a taurasaur (stegadon) and made his chimera run from my saurians and raptors, they both pursued and my raptors ran into his barbarians and both his wizards (all in 1 unit) then won combat and chased and killed the unit.
then it all went south, this chaos trolls and his wrath warriors basically went unit to unit and killed everything. by the end of the game my giant lead had been reduced to nothing because of 2 units that just plowed through everything.

Thanks for posting Brian, hopefully your luck will turn soon.

In my experience Lizardmen can be hard as nails. The units that I tended to avoid when facing them were saurus blocks with hand weapons and shields and a hero level fighty character in them.

Looking at the 9th age book, that seems to still be the case. Give the saurus the serpent totem animal and the character doesn't necessarily need any magical equipment either. Go 6 wide on the saurus unit and you'll have 23 S4 attacks from the saurus warriors and 4 S5 attacks from the character. You are looking at 422 points for the unit and the character so it is a bit pricy but if you take 2 of them that's your core all wrapped up and you could make one of the characters your battle standard so those are points you were going to take anyway. Then just add what you want until you get to 2500. I'd take a Taurosaur or two and the Stygiosaur looks cool too. Especially if you spend the 60 points to upgrade the skink to a champion so he can cast spells.

Ha literally exactly what we are doing, except spears because AP1 is sooo helpful, he has two wizards that usually default to Beast within (wildform) so i mean 4 ranks attacking in a 6x5, its honestly nasty to see two huge blocks of these for core especially when they end up S/T 5. Kroxigors got nerfed hard in the new book, before they could take my whole army, now they cant even take trolls. No more TOUGH 5 for Kroxigors, no more Kroxigor BSB, no more re roll 1's with predatory fighter and Great Weapons, Black Cube is useless now and you gotta pay for spear upgrade on saurus. The army got hit hard by the nerf bat in the last update.

imo the problem is he hasnt got to learn against "conventional" armies, Undead cheat by never fleeing or caring about any test, and Dwarves are just... different. Working on Ogres and Empire atm... give him some flesh to swing at instead of hard dwarven steel or bone.

I don't think any army in the game is "conventional". Every army has something that makes it unique. I do agree though that facing one or two armies regularly doesn't help. I remember my first forray into a tournament here. I thought I was pretty hot shit after smashing my brother's bretonnians regularly. I got my ass handed to me every game and learned more in those 3 games than I had in my previous 10.

I honestly think he should take the hand weapon and shield option rather than the spears, at least on one unit. Parry is amazing, especially on WS3 infantry. Almost everything they have to worry about is WS 4 or better so forcing the opponent to hit on 4+ is huge. He has the character to do the smashing for the unit. If he needs more smashing give the character a great weapon for some S7 fun. I have never worried about kroxigor ever. They were never very good. Does he run a Cuatl Lord? He should.

True, but atleast elves, humans, orks etc all have to follow phycology rules and stuff u know?

Ha, i do help make all of his lists, so yes every character has had a great weapon an awesome armour save and usually a 4+ ward with a Talisman or Armour of Destiny. But again nathan we kind of have to change his as he doesnt get to re roll his 1's with great weapons anymore. Changed that rule, thats what hurt Kroxigors so much. Aye they use to be bad but before this update they were 3 attacks each, ws 4, str 5, tough 5 with a 4+ AS. with Great weapons str 7 and stomps, full command option and very cheap, so before he would get 16 str 7 attacks PLUS the BSB's with rerollable 1's plus stomps. Scary stuff.

We tried a Slann, underwhelming for point value was our opinion, mostly because you need an expensive Temple Guard unit to hold him. where as the Skinks have access to most of the same lores that brian is interested in (heavens and wildness) and since skinks can be lvl 4's and Skink Brave units are core and super cheap to have around with 18" short bows. Two lvl 2's was kind of the way we were going. And before black cube was nerfed he DOMINATED every magic phase with 2 lvl 2's, no joke.

I'm trying to get him to walk away from Lizards for a little to give his brain a refresh so he doesnt get stuck in a rut, but he really doesnt want to go back to Chaos atm.
