    5k+ army for a legendary battle event

    The event is one day long game and im planning on taking 5k worth of tomb kings to the event. I have no idea how im going to do as i know 3 of the big players at our store play elves of some sort so i know my opposition is gonna be heavy cause in the legendary battle rules system that we are using from i think white dwarf or something, tomb kings can't be on teams with any elves, counts, or brettonians.

    i'll be typing out my list momentarily and posting it.

    prenote: for this battle i do not plan on using the It Came From Below rule for my scorpions or swarm as i want to be able to cause damage as quickly as possible before i draw the attention of how ever many enemies will be prone to come after me due to what may happen on my magic phases. I'm fairly sure i will be being paired with at least 1 lizardmen player and a Ogre kingdoms player. I don't kow if anyone is going to be sporting chaos for this as much as i would love, so i think i may end up being the basic tank for this battle while they move in. This is absolutly everything i can field I'm more or less looking for opinions on my items and unit compositions. but any and all commentary or criticism is MORE then welcome.

    Woah... awesome Are you playing to a particular 5K points limit? If so, i think i can see some more efficient ways to max out. If not, its best not to stretch just for the sake of it. Do you have any more models available?

    what inefficiencies are you seeing?

    Things along the line of:

    Tomb Guard. Youll be running them 5 wide, 4 deep i assume. And you have 3 Characters in the unit, so in your front rank youll have Khalida, Prince and IB, as well as the TG Champ and the Banner OR Music. Not only will one of those guys go unused, but youre also paying 1.5x the pts cost of normal skellies, and only benefiting from 3 attacks with Killing Blow.

    If your opponants have to match your points then i think i can help trim this down nicely. However, if everyones just taking everything they have, then ill help optimise.. everything

    PS, any skellie proxies available from VCs?

    nah no skellies available only zombies and i dont want to use zombies for skellies lol.

    Everyones pretty much just bringing everything they can to the table. I may have misconstrued the musicians effect then, i thought musicians effects could still come into play unlike the banner and champ who have to be in the front even if he was somewhere else in the unit?

    Yeah, except for Brets, all command and heros etc have to be in the front rank to be effective.

    Ill look at the list and get back to you...

    I just have a question about a few things but overall it looks rather solid.

    a. i dont think it's really safe for my preists to be running around outside of a unit. in this big of a game ballistas or rock droppers will just crush em.

    b. i dont think princes can join in a unit of ushabti ? or can they, oh giggles the things i can do with that.

    c. i don't have an empty chariot to put the prince in or i'd have had one in thier or even an icon bearer in a chariot would be awesome. i only have the 3 for minimum unit of chariots.

    d. i will probably put blade of setep on one of the princes, to help kill certain pesky dragon riders. (no save normal, and explodes magic armour when it hits)
