Hey, got a couple 2000 point tourneys coming up in october and I am planning on taking my tomb kings...gotta represent them This list is very similar to one i've posted before with a few changes. Lemme know what you think.
Tomb Kings, DoE, CoS, Light Armour(had the points)
Lich Priest, Skeletal Steed
Lich Priest, Casket of Souls
Lich Priest, Hieratic Jar, Cloak of the Dunes(Hierophant)
Skeleton Archers X 20
Skeleton Archers X 20
Tomb Swarms X 3
Tomb Guard X 24, Full Command, Icon of Rakaph
Carrion X 4
Tomb Scorpion X 2
Screaming Skull Catapult
Total = 2000
Obviously my goal is to make my opponent come to me with the casket, SSC and archers doing their thing. I have yet to use Carrion, I know they have their uses against armies that aren't immune to psycology, so i figured I would give them a shot. Also can always use them to march block so I can be picky of who I want to go after with my tomb guard. Swarms and Scorps can take out entire units by themselves on the rear flank, so my goal will be to use them for that, and also take out artillery and ranged units.
Drop one Tomb Swarm and give both bow units Musicians, upgrade the SSC, and then possibly drop a few TG in order to give the SoRav to the mounted Priest.
had the tournament this weekend, took a list similar to this, i lowered the unit of TG down to 20, dropped 1 carrion and added the staff, skulls of the foe and the music to the skellies.
I ended up placing 3rd in overall points, I was 3 points from second, and 9 points outa first hehe, with 2 massacres and getting massacred once unfortunately. First game I probly had my best single fantasy moment ever when use my SSC in my magic phase on the very first spell of the game I paniced a unit of 9 bret knights and his lord off the table. By turn 3 I had wiped the entire Brit army off the table.
Second game was against vamps and I got excited because I killing blowed his lord with my TK on turn 2, ARGH, but still ended up getting massacred .
Final game was against empire and my casket shined here big time lol. Turn 2 conceed because I rolled a 13 3 times with my casket lol. I also took his lord out with my SSC hehe.
This was the first time I've ever used carrion, and they were amazing. I would fly my Lich Priest with the cloak up behind them into a safe spot where he wouldnt get shot and would make sure i get all the dispell dice out and cast urgency on the carrion and get a first turn charge off.
Been about 3 months since ive used my Tks and I enjoyed them a ton this tourney. Next tourney I go to I think I will drop the skellies and make room for some chariots i think. I think that will be the only way to really deal with vamps.
