having a few problems at the moment, been playing beastmen for a few months now and have had my fair share of wins aswell as looses about 50/50 , but the one person/army in my club is a Tomb king force , he takes approx the following ;
Casket of souls
Herophont in with 20 bowmen
10x Spearmen (infront of ustubi as a shield)
40x Tomb Guard with a tomb prince/king and the character which makes them hatred ect <--- Main problem
now i dont normally like to take lists to beat a particular army in mind, prefer the idea of using all comer lists, but i keep getting thrashed by this guy his tomb guard are the nastiest and wondering if anyone has any advice ? I normaly take a death star mino's with lord and hero bsb, 40gors, 2 tuskigor chariots, 2x 10ungor raiders and lvl 4 shaman with slugtongue or lvl 2 shaman
any advice would be appreciated
I wouldn't run Minotaurs or Chariots at all, to be honest with you - a 40-strong unit of Bestigors with a big and mean Beastlord will do what he does to you right back at him, only worse because you have Great Weapons and he doesn't. Put a Wargor BSB with The Beast Banner in your unit of Gors, and all of a sudden you're packing 2 Hordes who kick serious tail.
thanks for the responce,
I played around with my list before coming back on to Librium and seeing your response but chose to do something similar, putting a lvl4 in with the bestigor with the lord , and lvl2 with bsb in gors, with supporting razorgors and razorgor chariots for flank charges,
The casket bothers me as it does alot of damage jumping around between my units but thats unavoidable i guess
Pretty much. Toss some Razorgors at it and try to score a kill, otherwise you just have to deal with it.
I'm also rather down on chariots, these days - their inability to march is a real killer for an otherwise fast-moving CC army. I've been using Harpies and Razorgors for support units these days, and I can't say enough good things about them. The Chaos Pigs are a very versatile unit, and having I5/A2 is great on war machine munchers, as it means they rarely get hit back.
Sounds like a plan im willing to try out , i was a few points over with the tuskigor chariots so ill take some harpies , would you run small units of 5 or a larger group of say 10 ?
In total I have 6 Razorgor models , thinking then of ripping off the chariot ones and making up another to give me 2 units of 3 squealing around or again could 6 running around indepdently be more fun, i guess it gives me a much better chance of getting the charges in if i have three attempts
I usually run Razorgors in pairs - 3 is too wide to really do anything to a flank, which is one of their main uses.
I'd run 5 Harpies in a unit - that's enough to get the job done.
