I just won 7 Kroxigors on eBay. I previously had 0, so I’m happy about that. Never used them before, still have my lizardmen army in boxes. The question is... how many is “enough”. How do you all use them??
Both on their own and with skinks can be playable. If with skinks you need to have a certain number of skinks for every kroxigor so that sort of drives the number of krox. No need to go beyond 4 krox when mixed with skinks but even 1 is playable. If running solo I would say 6 is the minimum size for a unit which can do real damage. Bigger could be playable too though.
Also, minor item but this post really doesn’t belong in battle reports.

Dannytee is right of course, the cohort needs a certain amount of skinks each time you take a Krox, however unlike say Ogres the Krox in the second rank can always be hit so the skinks while a pest and can add rank bonus to the unit they also become easy targets and not extra wound markers as a unit of ogres and a few heroes would be.
I've used 3 in a Cohort, I've used 3 on their own. The cohort takes a standard and musician and costs a small fortune whilst the Krox seem to be taken down. however I'm trying different tactics with my Lizards now so may dust them off again.
Bret/Dwarf/Lizardmen/Tomb King/Wood elf/Vampire counts - Purest of 8th.
Regarding Trolls, I found the 8 (2 ranks of 4) is the perfect optimal number, I believe that's true for most monstrous infantry. That's not to say 3, 4, 6, etc. are bad, those unit sizes have their uses.
Including Kroxigors in Skinks units is a great option. I wish I could put Trolls in my Goblin units! If you do use big cohorts of Skinks, you should add a couple Kroxigors - it makes the entire unit extremely threatening.
