Previously, they were a minor, non-playable faction.
How they play[edit | edit source]
A summary of Lizardmen gameplay. See the main Lizardmen page for more details.
- Units: In battle, Lizardmen have strong melee units, powerful magic users, and many monsters. However, their ranged units are just average.
- Blessed Spawnings: These are elite Lizardmen units in limited supply, similar to Regiments of Renown.
- Rampage: Overall, Lizardmen have good leadership. However, many of their units can potentially rampage and go out of control in battle.
- Rites: Lizardmen can perform several rites in campaign to bolster themselves or recruit Slann Mage-Priests.
- Astromancy Stance: A unique army stance which increases map vision and ambush chance.
- Geomantic Web: Lizardmen settlements are linked by the magical Geomantic Web which makes their commandments more powerful.
- Lord Kroak: Lizardmen factions can embark on a quest to recruit the unique hero Lord Kroak.
In battle[edit | edit source]
Tlaqua play similarly to other Lizardmen factions, aside from a few different abilities on Terradons.

Legendary lord choices[edit | edit source]
Unique faction effects[edit | edit source]
- Skink Chiefs and Skink Priests have immediate access to a Terradon mount.
- All characters gain 25% to their campaign line-of-sight
- The unique Rite of Tzunki, when performed, immediately resets the campaign movement range of all Tlaqua’s armies and characters
- Terradons gain a unique ability in battle: Drop Rocks of Chotec, in addition the normal Drop Rocks
Rite of Tzunki[edit | edit source]
The Rite of Tzunki replaces the Rite of Sotek for Tlaqua. It resets campaign movement range for all Tlaqua's amries and characters. It can be extremely useful for getting out of, or into, strategically advantageous situations. This is similar to how Har Ganeth has the Sacrifice to Drakira, which replaces the regular Dark Elves Sacrifice to Hekarti.
