    Escalation TK

    I'm participating in an escalation tourney at my Local GW in June.

    The ideas is that we play three games, of aescending points value; the first is 1K the second 1.5K and finally 2K for the third game.

    We are supposed to be using the same army throughout just adding on for the later games.

    Here's what I've come up with so far:

    1K:

    General:

    Tomb Prince, Chariot, Chariot of Fire, Golden Eye of Rah-nutt, Flail, Light Armor, Shield - 201

    Heiro

    Liche Priest, Steed, Scroll, Jar - 173

    Core:

    5x Skeleton Horsemen - 70
    5x Skeleton Horsemen - 70

    Special:

    4 Chariots - 160
    4 Chariots - 160

    3 Carrion - 72

    Rare:

    Screaming Skull - 90

    Total - 996

    1.5K
    General:

    Tomb Prince, Chariot, Chariot of Fire, Golden Eye of Rah-nutt, Flail, Light Armor, Shield - 201

    Heiro:

    Liche Priest, Steed, Scroll, Jar - 173

    Wizard:

    Liche Priest, Steed, Staff of Ravening - 168

    Core:

    20x Skeleton Warrior, LA/HW/S, Standard, Champion - 200

    5x Skeleton Horsemen - 70
    5x Skeleton Horsemen - 70

    Special:

    4 Chariots, Standard, Champion, Standard of the Undying Legion - 225
    4 Chariots, Standard, Champion - 200

    4 Carrion - 96

    Rare:

    Screaming Skull - 90

    Total - 1493

    2K

    General:

    Tomb King, Chariot, Chariot of Fire, Golden Eye of Rah-nutt, Flail of Skulls, Light Armor, Shield - 316

    Heiro:

    Liche Priest, Cloak, Jar - 160

    Wizards:

    Liche Priest, Steed, 2xScroll - 173
    Liche Priest, Steed, Staff of Ravening - 168


    Core:

    20x Skeleton Warrior, LA/HW/S, Standard, Champion - 200

    5x Skeleton Horsemen - 70
    5x Skeleton Horsemen - 70

    4 Chariots, Standard, Champion, Standard of the Undying Legion - 225
    4 Chariots, Standard, Champion - 200

    Special:

    Scorpion - 85
    Scorpion - 85

    4 Carrion - 96

    Rare:

    Screaming Skull - 90
    Screaming Skull - 90

    Total - 2028

    The questions I have:

    Does this look effective at all point values?

    I have never used this many chariots, is this a good configuration?

    I am like 28 points over on the 2K list, where do you reccommend I recover those from?

    Oh, this will probably take a while - lucky you aren't in a hurry

    1k:
    • I would like a unit with some good CR. You will easily get overwhelmed if you doesn't win in combat and outnumber your foes.
    • I guess the carrions are to eat war machine crew. If they are not, take a unit of 5 (Love the magic number )
    • Maybe you should consider in taking a scorp?
    1,5k:
    • Here comes the CR unit of Skellies. I would consider additional skellies for a greater chance of outnumber when the time comes. Take at least 25 (24 if a character will join the unit)
    • Love the Chariots <333
    • SLH,,, I guess they are to take corners? Maybe hold flanks? If you can use them right, they are good - if you cannot, they are useless and should be erased
    • One scorp here too... maybe?
    2k:
    • One more scorp... In 2k you can squeeze it to fit the points
    • You have to be VERY careful with the charges and so on... You only got ONE unit with at least 20 US. Consider to make this at least 25 or to take an additional unit.
    • Skulls of the Foe? Really good in many games (though not in ALL games)
    • Deadly list with the chariots <333 Make sure you use them right (and watch out for S7s )
    Try it, and you can come to a personal reference in what you think of a charioteer army

    Good Luck to You!

    I tried to incorporate all of your advice - nameley bringing in the skellies earlier, and getting a scorpion on the field fast.

    any comments on the new setup(s)?

    Chariot heavy at 1K, nice Although you could definitely do with a second priest there, they need the magic support to get the long range charges in. Drop one chariot from the Princes unit and maybe give both units banners, possible a magic banner to the Princes unit too.

    Maybe lose the SSC? Youll want your Chariots to be bearing down on the enemy asap, and youll want your magical support to be with them. A lone SSC which may be shooting amongst your own units may be more of a problem than an assistance. This kinda applies to the 1500 list too.

    Also at 1500, drop the Chariot Champs. 40pts wasted there... and by dropping a Chariot (as above) from the Princes unit, thats a unit of say, 2Tomb Swarms to fill a proxy Scorp role. Also add music to the skellies. Possibly switch them to bows for some tactical flexibility but thats your call.


    2K, All the above applies. And id drop a Priest to and run a Chariot Prince in his place. Maybe keep the SSCs here... but definitely upgrade them The light Cav could go (maybe just 1 unit to join the mounted Priest) and grab yourself that 4th special unit (more Carrion would fit nicely i think). Finally add another "scorp proxy" Tomb swarm unit incase some ICFB goes wrong lol.
