The plan would be to have the SSC and warriors with bows start pelting ranged early on, supported by the 2x LP casting smiting. Once ICFB happens the LP on horse will catch up and support the TP group flanked by Usabti (hammer/anvil). Of course I am open for any suggestions army and tactic wise! I am not quite at 1500 points, so there is some wiggle room
Beautiful... just Beautiful!
50pts wiggle room, ill come to that in a bit...
But this list... pretty perfect. Just a few things:
Of personal preference, id say combine the two small bow units into one large block, Reduces number of shots, but they will be able to act as some static res later on. Add Music if you go with the large unit.
A 4th Ushabti would be fantastic, and really make that unit hit hard. Forget flanking, they can charge most things in the front and come out on top lol. So, you'll need to lose 15/20pts (depending on the above) to get a 4th in... this is the hard part.
Ofcourse, you could also upgrade the Princes Collar to the Golden Ankhra, or even give him Sword of Might, S and LA, gaining an armour save, retaining Init, and still having a Str bonus.
Final option, add numbers to the TG unit so they can tale casualties before being reduced in effectiveness.
Thanks for the reply! The reason I have 50 points wiggle are because of basically the choices you mention . I guess I can group the bows up, and use a movement turn to position in 2 groups 5 to get some extra shots in before close combat happens.
As for the Ushabti...I tried to figure out a way to do it, and the only way I can is to drop the SoF from SSC...and I am not sure if that is a good move or not. Further, maybe beefing up the TP might be a bit of better option in terms of armor/weapon combo. With this large block of troops, would you even bother having a "hammer"?
Or...do you think its worth just adding a couple of dispel scrolls?
I am still a little unsure on how to use the light horse/LP with staff group. Go after slower targets? Keep a distance and nuke? Keep behind Ushabti/TG group for extra incantations/heals? I have used the staff of ravening a few times now...and on sponge groups it is just wicked, it also makes them use dispel dice a little more carefully
ise a tomb prince same config and a liche priest with cloak and heredic jarr8X
they rock my self would add a casket of souls by taking out light horsemen and catapult (then you will have the exsta points for a 4th ushabiti). then give to mounted liche take him of steed use those points to make a musition for the archers
then it will be perfect
then add 4 2000pts the things you took out and liche high priest amazein:happy::ninja2:
also 2 units of 10 are fine when u got a casket they can flank charge and prevent casket bein charged i use that as well

Personally i don't like/take Scrolls. I guess the Prince could carry the Broach, maybe do that if you're worries about facing magic heavy opponents, just incase.
Don't think the loss of SotF would be worth it. Besides, if the enemy just passed a Ld test with it gone, you'd be kicking yourself lol.
For the LP w/ SoR, the Light Cav are just a bodyguard unit. They can stick to terrain if they like, for safety. one of the Staff's best uses is to weaken small enemy units, specifically Fast Cav or Skirmishers.
WE Dryads for example, 6's to wound may not seem good, but remember they wont get their Ward and with a good number of hits it should drop a couple each time its successful.
Skinks are another great example target, easy to wound so lots of killing potential there.
Or even against ranked up units, Zombies, say. T2 means you'll be getting about 3D6/2 kills against units like that.
i was thinking maybe upgrading Collar to Golden ankhra, and then maybe upgrading BotUL to Banner of the Sacred eye or Rakaph?
