    1.5k Army :) first one

    Ok this is the first army list av made that am guna use...

    Its going to be me + my vampire counts mate vs. 3000points of empire (shooty).

    We are each allowed a lord (house rules)

    this is my list so far:

    LORD

    Liche high priest, cloak of dunes, mighty plaques - 295 points

    HEROES

    liche priest, steed, hieratic jar, dispel scroll - 173 points

    tomb prince, great wep, collar, light armour, shield, chariot - 178 points

    CORE

    bow warriors x20, light armour - 170 points

    bow warriors x20, light armour - 170 points

    tomb swarms x3 - 135 points

    SPECIAL

    carrion x3 - 72 points

    chariots x3, command - 170 points

    RARE

    SSC, skulls of foe - 110 points

    For an army i wanted a decent combat army with shooting support as my other army of dwarves doesn't really do that for me. Although i'd have a magic heavy army over combat any day.

    so i wanted in order of priority:

    magic, anything dwarves dont have (bows, cavalry, chariots, big stuff, flyers, ...they came from below) combat/shooting i dunno what to prefer.

    i dunno if this list really does it for me.

    Any other tips about use of different units etc...would help. I've read through stickies on various sites and i think i have a decent idea about what to do.

    Don't bother with a Chariot Champion. And the Musician isn't a must, but could be handy i guess. Give them the BotUL (Magic Banner - Undying Legion)

    A 6+Sv wont help your skellies much, if at all. Drop their Light Armour and give them Music. Maybe a Banner each too.

    I think 3 Swarms is just 1 too many, so you can cut a few pts there.

    If you can afford it, maybe get 5 Light Cav.

    The most important thing is that you must be happy with your list So go ahead and forget my list advice from the previous thread and then write up another (based around the Chars if you like them) then we can comment on that

    LORD

    Liche high priest, cloak of dunes, mighty plaques - 295 points
    - this is my heirophant...i have no idea how to protect it from dieing... i was thinking of using it to get first turn charge with the carrion.

    HEROES

    liche priest, steed, hieratic jar, dispel scroll - 173 points
    - casting spells where needed, probably stick around with the light horsies if needed for the shooting bonus etc..

    tomb prince, great wep, collar, light armour, shield, chariot - 178 points
    - the assault block of the army, joins chariot

    CORE

    bow warriors x20, musician - 165 points
    - walk and shoot, then charge

    bow warriors x20, musician - 165 points
    - walk and shoot then charge

    tomb swarms x2 90 points
    - not sure how to play these guys.

    light horsies x6, musician - 91 points
    - general anoyance, lil bow shots and possibly flank charges if i need them

    SPECIAL

    carrion x3 - 72 points
    - first turn charge i'm hoping for, the hierophant or priest (not sure yet) can stand behind them and push them forward towards war machines etc...

    chariots x3, musician, standard bearer - 150
    - the assault block of the army /w prince

    RARE

    SSC, skulls of foe - 110 points
    - lob rocks at big units to try and panic them

    that comes out at 1495 points

    ---

    If you see a better way to use these units feel free to tell me

    Drop the Music from the light Cav, and lose one of their number.

    Try and get a magic banner onto those Chariots. BotUL may be nice.
