I'm a relatively newish Tomb Kings player. So far, I've only had enough for 1000pt battles, but I've just gained enough for a 2000pt fight. The problem is, I have just enough, so there isn't much flexibility or numbers, making my confidence pretty low.
I've been really interested in the DoW/RoR, almost to the point of wanting to switch over an play a full DoW army. I was trying to find something to give me a better rare choice, since:
-A Bone Giant is too many points(220) for 1000pts
-Bone Giants, in my experience, also don't do crap other than distract the enemy
-I dont feel confident enough with my Screaming Skull, especially with only 1000pts of enemies
-I play mostly against Dwarfs (high Ld, high dispell) so a Casket of Souls would be wasteful, but not impossible.
So, my attention was originally drawn to a Giant, until I found the Albion Truthsayer and Dark Emissary. The Dark Emissary drew my attention more, and I was just wondering if it'd be worth it in 1000pts. Yes, I know it's even more than a Bone Giant, but something about throwing a Lv4 wizard into a 1000pt battle makes me feel naughty inside.
Any advise on this? Or can you suggest another DoW/RoR for me to try?

yeah, I started thinking about that with the 1000pts.
And no, my friends don't mind cheese. I mean, the guy I primarily play against plays Dwarfs, which is cheesey enough without him taking as many runes as he possibly can. I once saw him play a 2000pts battle with 700+ points of runes/magic items. I've never read the Dwarfs book, and I think he had just skimmed (his first Dwarf fight) so I'm not sure if that's legal, but I wasn't playing, so it was just funny.
None of us mind cheese unless it's coming from Chaos.
I think I might just rework my 2000pt list (tested it for the first time this weekend vs. High Elves... my first win) to replace my Bone Giant. He's been in about 8 fights and has only killed 3 White Lions and a Swordmaster. Just not worth 220pts if you ask me, especially when you consider my Screamin Skull has been in one fight, killed a Silverhelm and sent the rest of the unit off the board, for half the points.
This is really more of an "Until I can afford Tomb Guard and Ushabti" plan/experiment. I wouldn't saw I'm very proud of this.
