Total War: Warhammer 2: Lizardmen Roster!

Total War: Warhammer 2 is showing off the New Lizardmen Roster and has an even closer look at the Temple Guard!

The Lizardmen of Warhammer Fantasy are probably one of the most misunderstood armies. That’s probably because they don’t really speak much. They are the coldblooded defenders of the jungles of Lustria and they serve the Old Ones. The Slann guide the other races (the Saurus, Skinks and Kroxigors) to battle against their oldest foes – the followers of Chaos.

However, they are not above attacking other armies they deed as a threat. And now that the High Elves have come to their lands (along with their Dark Kin) they are ready to defend their home.

How do they wage war and what do their units do? Well if you’re curious then check out the two videos below:

THE LIZARDMEN

Millennia ago, besieged by a Chaos invasion, a conclave of High Elf mages forged a vast, arcane vortex. Its purpose was to draw the Winds of Magic from the world as a sinkhole drains an ocean, and blast the Daemonic hordes back to the Realm of Chaos. Now the Great Vortex falters, and the world again stands at the brink of ruin.

Powerful forces move to heal the maelstrom and avert catastrophe. Yet others seek to harness its terrible energies for their own bitter purpose. The race is on, and the very fate of the world will lie in the hands of the victor.

Atop his palanquin-throne, the Slann Mage-Priest Mazdamundi directs his Lizardmen war-hosts as they surge northward from Lustria. He is intent on preventing cataclysm, though the methods of The Old Ones must prevail.

LEGENDARY LORDS

Players choosing the Lizardmen will be able to select from the following Legendary Lords with which to lead their Grand Campaign.

  • MAZDAMUNDI

Lord Mazdamundi is the oldest and most powerful of the living Slann Mage-Priests. With a matchless mind unfathomable to others, Mazdamundi is obstinate in his ways and will not be deterred from that upon which he has decided. Although it took many interruptions to his thoughtful contemplations, at last the great Mazdamundi has stirred himself, shaking off the lethargy that has afflicted so many of his kind.

When riled, the Lord of the Solar-City will levitate his palanquin-throne atop the largest Stegadon that can be found. The current beast, a colossal specimen named Zlaaq, has served Mazdamundi for almost five hundred years. Once aloft on his mount, Mazdamundi will march out at the head of the armies of Hexoatl. With a flick of his wrist, Mazdamundi has smashed cities and doomed armies. His Great Purpose does not allow for mercy…

  • KROQ-GAR

Kroq-Gar is an ancient Saurus, the last remaining warrior from the now ruined temple-city of Xhotl. It was none other than the great Lord Mazdamundi that summoned Kroq-Gar to his temple-city, choosing him to lead the great Saurus armies that remained. Since that day, Mazdamundi has assigned Kroq-Gar the sacred task of exterminating those creatures not part of the Old Ones’ Great Plan.

Over this long existence, Kroq-Gar has fought many wars – leading the armies of Hexoatl, or joining other hosts to aid them in battle. There is no continent upon which Kroq-Gar and Grymloq have not fought, but for the last defenders of Xhotl, the battle is not yet over.

The Temple Guard are a rare spawning of Saurus created to protect the Slann Mage-Priests and the temple-cities in which the Lizardmen dwell. They are armed with large ornate halberds, adorned with sacred glyphs and also bear distinctive helms fashioned from the skulls of Lustria’s wildest predatory beasts.

Total War: WARHAMMER II

Millennia ago, besieged by a Chaos invasion, a conclave of High Elf mages forged a vast, arcane vortex. Its purpose was to draw the Winds of Magic from the world as a sinkhole drains an ocean, and blast the Daemonic hordes back to the Realm of Chaos. Now the Great Vortex falters, and the world again stands at the brink of ruin.

Powerful forces move to heal the maelstrom and avert catastrophe. Yet others seek to harness its terrible energies for their own bitter purpose. The race is on, and the very fate of the world will lie in the hands of the victor.

 

The Lizardmen march later this year!

  • Wow, but what is this? Where are my Magical Stars Seraphonass from Far Galaxy? And Golden Sigmarines and those… Aelvalelas? I have no idea why no one wants to make video game from this beautiful and really inspiring realm of Warhammer: Age of Crapmar! It’s so inspiring, that it now inspired me now to take a big dump! It’s as big as Floating Fire Volcano from Failmar Realm!

    • Your impotent rage at Age of Sigmar is so 2015.

      • Not really. There are now Man’o War, Mordheim, Total War, Vermintide and none of those games uses AOS universe, because it’s crap, instead capitalizing on glorious Warhammer Fantasy world.

        • Nilok

          My understanding of WFB and AoS is that on the tabletop, WFB was only 7-8% of GW’s sales. GW made a decision that WFB simply wasn’t working on the tabletop side, but saw large opportunity to use its existing lore outside of the tabletop in video games and RPGs, while rebooting the fantasy line into AoS to make it competitive with Warmachine/Hordes. This has resulted in AoS jumping to ~30% of GW’s sales and has become a tent pole for GW.

          I’m sorry that the old guard, before GW restructured, did such a poor job moving WFB into a new system then the new guard is doing with 40k.

          • Sparowl

            You’ll have to let us in on how you got your numbers.

            Seeing as how GW doesn’t release them, and all…

          • Nilok

            An anonymous source and Harry from Warseer on Faeite 212, sadly I can’t post the direct links due to moderators needing to approve it.

            According to the “solid source” it was actually 5% sales from WFB and 35% sales for AoS.

          • According to my anonymous source (very solid) Warhammer Fantasy sales were 666% of Warhammer WH40K. That’s why they axed it.

        • Bran D

          More than likely they use WFB as a setting because the license for those games were set in stone when they started developing them. I’m sure we’ll see AoS games in the future.

      • Heinz Fiction

        I still love those Sigmar rants!

    • Get over it.

      • I can’t 🙁 I’ve gamemastered Warhammer Fantasy RPG for like 10 years and I feel emotionally attached to it 🙂

        • That’s your problem, don’t bother others with it.

          • I am trying, but everytime I look at the Sigmarines the pain is too much!

          • nordsturmking

            yup, i am with you. AoS has dump background storys, rules, and 40k rip off model design.

          • ledha

            which is funny when you remember that the space marines ripped off the chaos warrior style

          • Don’t look at them then. You brought it up. This article isn’t even about AoS.

        • Horacio Rivas

          Vaelis,
          I understand your pain. But I have given Age of sigmar a try and I actually enjoy it. My principal struggle with Warhammer fantasy was the lack of people playing the game. Everyone had an army but no one will bring it to the store and play with it. Age of sigmar has brought new players and players of old. Give it a try. If you don’t like it then we always have Total war 🙂

        • dave long island

          You’re not alone. Hell I’ve been playing WFRP since the early 90s.

    • Txabi Etxebarrieta

      I don’t have a strong opinion on Age of Sigmar one way or another. I don’t play it, and I didn’t play Warhammer Fantasy. But this was just a terrible post. And I don’t mean terrible as in it makes a moral judgment about your character. I mean it’s something I’d expect a middle schooler would write. And not a particularly clever or mature one.

      • It’s not my fault that GW moved Warhammer from Dark Fantasy to Kids Fantasy.

        • Gunther Clone C

          Gotta get a fresh generation somehow, might as well make it more family friendly. My only beef with AoS is that GW lumped Skaven in with the trash that is Chaos…we’re better than that and are numerous enough (in the lore only) to justify having our own faction! 😛

        • SiggisMarines

          As a player and lover of both, I don’t see how WFB is dark fantasy and AoS is kids fantasy. I play the table top, video games, read the books, etc and fantasy wise they have the same “theme”, just AoS progresses its story and WFB didn’t until they killed it. The only thing that I see about AoS that is less “dark” is a distinct lack of slaanesh story arcs. Kids fantasy are things like thomas the train and dragon land. The same elements that made WFB what it was are still there, just new sides, armies, realms, story arcs, etc. If you read the books you still have guys breaking the necks of Orruks then ripping their heads off with the spine still dangling from the now removed skull, and doing this with their bare hands btw. You have Khorne champions grabbing their foes by the head in large gauntleted hands and slowly crushing their skull because “it is not worthy of Khorne”. Noxious Nurgle clouds being breathed in by people and causing them to vomit up their liquefied organs. This fits dark fantasy. Like I said I have read LOADS of books from WFB and AoS for the fluff and the feel of the land so-to-speak and the theme is the same. The only thing I can think of that is “less dark” about AoS is that in WFB you always had the feeling that chaos will always ultimately win eventually and in AoS you have an inkling hope that maybe order can eek out a victory against chaos.

        • dave long island

          We’ve all gotten together and discussed this, and the consensus is clear that you do indeed share a significant portion of the blame.

        • EnTyme

          You should really read into the lore of AoS rather than looking it up on 1d4chan. It’s a lot deeper than you seem to think. Start with City of Secrets. If you can’t make a compelling RP campaign out of this setting, the issue isn’t with the setting.

  • dave long island

    Always a joy to see Joey!! 🙂

  • Joe Davis

    Does this mean we might FINALLY get new Seraphon models? It’s been long enough.

    • Cylux

      I wouldn’t put money on it.
