    1000 Starter List

    Hi, I'm new to Tomb Kings, and wanted to compose a starting list for my game against Dark Elves this weekend. Although I wish to have a balanced list, I would love some tactical advice against his list (I'll put it farther down in the post.)

    Heroes -
    Tomb Prince - 142
    Shield, Armor of the Ages (Joins Tomb Guard). He is the General. My purpose for him is to hold the unit together.

    Liche Priest - 160
    Cloak of the Dunes, Hieratic Jar. He is the Heirophant. He functions as rapid incantation assist.

    Core -
    20 Skeleton Warriors - 185
    Full Command

    20 Skeleton Warriors - 185
    Full Command

    Special -
    19 Tomb Guard - 228
    Joined by Tomb Prince

    Tomb Scorpion - 85

    It all tallies up to to 985 Points

    The two skeleton warriors are used in conjunction with the tomb guard and scorpion to break units. If going against archery, keep using healing incantations until I can just start shutting down his line.

    His List is Generally:

    Highborn on Cold one
    Level 2 Sorceress

    20 Warriors
    20 Corsairs
    5 Cold One Knights
    5 Dark Riders

    Right:

    1) give the prince a great weapon

    2) You don't need three big infantry units at 1000 points, drop one of the bowmen units and maybe take a unit of 3/4 chariots.

    3) Give the larger remaining skele unit the BOUL

    4) try to add another scorpion, not sure where you will get the points from though, or a unit of three Carrion to take out the RBT he is sure to have

    Hope that helps,

    Will Adams

    Thank you for replying! Here's a new list as per your suggestions! However, I can't give them the BOUL, right? Because it says you can only give a regular skellie unit that if you have a Tomb King.

    Heroes -

    Tomb Prince - 142
    Shield, Armor of the Ages (Joins Tomb Guard). He is the General. My purpose for him is to hold the unit together.

    Liche Priest - 160
    Cloak of the Dunes, Hieratic Jar. He is the Heirophant. He functions as rapid incantation assist.

    Core -
    20 Skeleton Warriors - 185
    Full Command

    4 Chariots - 160

    Special -
    19 Tomb Guard - 228
    Joined by Tomb Prince

    Tomb Scorpion - 85

    It all tallies up to to 960 Points

    Will, the Skellies cant have the magic banner yet as there is no King.

    Also note that Chariots are Currently special, not Core (again no King). therefore you need a second Core to be legal. Get a single swarm to accompany the Scorp with ICFB.

    I think only 3 chariots will be needed in that unit, drop one to free up points elsewhere.

    Also loose the Champ from the Skellie Warriors.

    Im not sure whether your magic will be enough to be consistent. Look at getting in a second Priest. If you can then the Hiero doesnt really need the Hjar at all.

    Drop the Prince's Amour of Ages for the Collar of Shapesh. Far better defensively i think. Also give him a Great weapon, vs Elves you will be striking last anyway, and the extra S may be useful.

    If you are playing mainly offensive, then your infanry will take a while to reach the DE. If you can get an SSC in to the list, then play defensive and let the Catapult take care of the Elves at range.

    You shouldnt need 2 Scrolls at this level, so you can drop atleast one.

    2 large skellie units arnt really required. Boost one to 24 and put the Prince there. Drop the other completely and get a Scarab Swarm and SSC.

    Is this a solid list? I kinda felt the need for two units of skeletons, just because that way I could present strong blocks against armies like the DE one I posted above. But, if you guys think this is a good list, could you guys give me sone ideas on how to combat that DE list? I'll be playing against him this weekend.

    Its looking like a pretty solid list.

    The low S of the DE means they will not be taking out your skellies in combat too easily, I think one block of them should do fine here, considering what else you can get for the same cost as the second skellie unit.

    Practis guessing ranges for the SSC, and in game prioritise its fire against key units, the CoK or large units, obviously depending on how things go.

    The Chariots should be pretty good when charging most DE units, as they are only T3. Careful of the Knights though.

    Does he take no Bolt throwers? Sorry i think i overlooked the DE list you wrote in later posts, but the Scorp and swarms should still come in vary handy.

    Try and flank the CoK with the scorp, combined with another charge if possible. Also you could also use it for aiming to take out charcters.

    The swarms should prove a useful annoyance unit, and their poison sould be quit helpful when combined with a rear charge.


    Just one final thing, can you go 1pt over? If so, give your Prince Light Armour.

    If not, and assuming the DE player only takes one Lv2 Mage, then 4 Dispel dice should be fine for you, so maybe drop the scroll, get LA for the Prince, and add Music and a Standard to the large skellie unit.

    Thanks for all the advice, guys! I'm going to play him this weekend. However, he just told me today that he wants to play a 2000 point game as well. Should I make a new thread for that, or just start building it up on this thread from my old list?
