While I could just go ahead and do counters, and there are some excellent ones out there, I really like having miniatures to hold and paint.
One of the options I've been investigating is lizardmen. Not the Games Workshop army, but generic lizardmen. Too big? Sure, in 28mm scale. But what about 20mm, 15mm or even 10mm scale? There are some really nice figures being made in smaller scales that mounted on an appropriate base could fit the part.
One of the ones to catch my eye were the lizardmen from Magister Militum
There are also some interesting looking ones on this site: Comparing Lizardmen. The pendrake lizardmen look pretty promising, and at least one guy, Rob, painted up some for his giant army.
Anyone else out there ever try this?
