Hi guys after much deliberation i've decided to take my Tomb Kings with me to a local tournament this weekend. I've mainly been using my HE's recently so i'm a little rusty.
Below is the list that I usually use so please if any of you can see any improvements I'd like to hear them.
Liche High Priest (Hierophant):
Cloak of Dunes, Staff Of Ravening and Hieratic Jar.
Great weapon, Collar of Shapesh, Brooch of the Great Desert.
Casket of Souls, Dispel scroll.
Undead steed, Dispel scroll
Hand weapons, Shields, Light Armour, Musician, Standard Bearer.
Screaming Skull Catapult:
Skulls of the Foe.
I know that I have a lot of anti magic with 2 Dispel scrolls and the Brooch but I think there will be a few magic heavy armies there.
Ideally I would have liked another chariot to make it a unit of 4 but cant see where to take the points from except the Tomb swarm which I need to have in there as my 3rd core choice due to not usuing a King.
As I said before any advice would be great.
Firstly: Your Hierophant CANNOT have TWO arcane items I would suggest that you take the Plaques on him for mega-magic. Maybe give him a save for the SoR points
I got some things to consider:
I like the rest of it... Maybe there is a little too strange to take MORE scrolls when going against magical weak opponents in my opinion... BUT, it's up to you
- Your mounted LP - let him have the SoR, and he will be great out there. Be careful though, as you have no SLH to protect him with.
- SLH - maybe make a unit of these, just to make a good save for your mounted priest + adding some more flexibility
- The Skellies - nice units... I prefer having total 25 in each regiment, but that is totally up to what the tactics are for these juicy never-fleeing bastards that I love <333
Good Luck and I Hope It Helps!
Your LHP is illigal im afraid, both the SoRav and Hjar are Arcane items, he cant have them both Plaques are a solid LHP item (over the Hjar)
Prince is fine. Extra scroll there if necessary i guess.
Maybe shift the SoRav to the mounted Priest, and his scroll onto the other Priest?
Skellies are fine... as is the rest
You are right though, another Chariot unit would be nice... hmmm....
Yep my bad I do actually usually use the Staff on the mounted Liche and the scroll on the Hierophant, misread my own list
I also like to use the Hand weapon warriors as a unit of 24 with the Prince but as I was short on points that was the first thing on cutting my usual 2250 point list to 2000.
Maybe I will drop the 2 Dispel scrolls or 1 and the Brooch as this will still leave me with 6DD and an instant dispel which should be enough against most armies and use the points to get that extra chariot. Something to think about at least.
I think the reason im usually wary of magic is because my lists are usually magic heavy......oh well maybe throw caution to the wind this time
Thanks as always
No matter what,,, You should really try to give your LHP the Plaques I can guarantee their effectiveness on a High Priest
