Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey all, just want to say thanks in advance for any help and insights you can give
So anyways, I'm in an escalation league, this coming sunday being the 1k limit matches. The other players are using - OK's, Brets - an all mounted force :'(...., Lizardmen, and VC's.
Chariot, Flail of Skulls?
Liche Priest (heiro)
20 x Skeleton Warriors
15 x Skeleton Warriors
3 x Chariots
Standard + BotUL
1 x SSC
I believe thats 999 points. Anyways, I was wondering if it's viable in such low point games to put the prince in a chariot? If so, what gear should I put on him? Or should I just stick him with the archers and bump up their numbers?
Also, from the 750 point games a while back, I had generally got at least a spell through when i needed it. At 1k points I've added the second priest, so I should really dominate the magic phase (none of the other lists are magic heavy, except maybe VC) From having a few practice games against the OK's player (not with this list, but still with 2 priests) I know that at least against him almost all of my magic will get through. Is the BotUL overkill? I originally took it for the bound spell, so I could get more important magic through.
Reason I didn't take a TS is beacuse noone has any warmachines, and wizards are all tucked away in units. Haven't seen anyone play a wizard on their own yet.
Thanks again for the help
The Flail of Skulls is nice, but maybe a dit expensive and overkill at just 1K. Personally id drop it for a normal flail (unless there is a specific reason for it). That way you should have the points to make the second skellie unit into another full unit of 20.
If you can give both Skellie units Music that would be good.
VCs should be your only difficult opponant. All mounted Brets make for a small army, and a few sweet SSC shots should see them off the board
Mmm yes I think I will switch the FoS to just a normal flail. The problem I had when facing brets I think is in the lower point lists I didn't have enough skeletons to hold during the charge...he would crumble so many. He's the only one I haven't beaten at least once. In fact, he's un-defeated throughout the whole thing so far.
Ogre's also pose a big threat for me. He plays his list using MSU tactics. During the practice games I had against him I just couldn't get a handle on all his little units (Flank charges are ftl) But I think this list will do better with 2 full blocks of skeletons, and some practice with the SSC under my belt
Thanks for the help! I'll try and get some battle reports or something up as we increase the points in the league. (goes up by 250 points every 3 weeks/month)

My SSC beat 1500pts of mounted Brets single handed this way. Most epic win ever It can be done...
Yeah my very first game with it was against the Brets...didn't do so well. It did pretty good in the rest of the games I played that day, just getting used to it that first game. Sucked that it was against a fast Bret army But since then I've played a lot of practice games and have gotten pretty good at guessing range
I think I'm having another practice game tonight against the ogre's player. We'll try out this this and see how it goes
yeah phoenix is right on the flail of skulls, but you definately want the golden eye of rahnutt on your princes chariot. static 5+ ward save is nice and str7+ doesnt break him.
