looks like the box comes with 6 saraus and 6 skinks. No one knows if the green skinks are a new positional or just for variety. Slann reduced to a turn counter.

It looks to me like a new type of player, perhaps a chameleon skink?

it is a chameleon skink, as the text says so. really hope they havent buffed the lizards. If I were to guess I would say they are the sme price - 1 AV with the skill Catch. Which wouldn't be awful. If they start with Sure Hands though that will be far too big a buff.

Garion, will you edit the Chameleon Skinks from your Secret League Skink roster and make them like the GW ones?
I think you should for consistency (as you did for example adding to the Eshin Gutter Runners Weeping Dagger).
If you don't want to change them then I suggest a name change to prevent confusion.

it depends on what they do with them really, most likely I will, but if its something truly awful I won't. That said I included Weeping Daggers even though i consider their inclusion in the rules an abomination.

Even giving them catch makes an already very good offensive bash team even better with more reliable 1 and 2 turn options

sure, I don't know what they have done, this is just a guess. I would rather Lizardmen were left well alone as they are already very top of tier 1. But Catch and -Av wouldnt push them over the top imo. It would be a tiny buff, which they absolutely don't need. But it wouldn't be game breaking.

The new player could be something worthless like a skink with diving catch for 10k more which will almost never get taken.

The miniature has a tongue firing out it's mouth and catching the ball. so it would appear to be catch or diving catch.

Catch and 'Chameleon' (works like foul appearance)

With the skinks big eyes they look a bit more like BB Slann than usual.

I dunno if it is the sculpture or the painting, but they look like derpy pugs or Chihuahuas to me.

They do mention chameleon Skinks in the text, but just after writing Massive Saurus. Doesn't sound like a specific positional. Just Saurus and skink.
Though anybody who wants a Lizardmen team from scratch will want a Krox model.

It looks like a baller positional to me. Maybe with monstrous mouth. Hope I am wrong though.

They're kind of missing the point with these type of '2 tone' rosters; believing they're boring because they lack positionals and sadly not seeing the depth.
