Morning guys, here's my 1500 point list i want to experiment with. It has 2 Princes and 1 Liche Priest, not normal at this level i know but here it is anyway
(Any advice and/or improvements that you think can be made would be more than welcomed)
Prince - 192
- Chariot, Light armour, Chariot of fire, enchanted shield, biting blade.
Prince - 141
- Great Weapon, Light armour, Death mask.
Liche Priest - 330
- Casket, Dispel Scroll, Collar of Shapesh.
20 Skeleton Warriors - 205
- Full Command, Light armour, Shields, (Prince on foot will hang around here).
15 Skeleton Warriors - xxx
3 Tomb Swarms - xxx
3 Chariots - 165
- Banner Bearer, Banner of the Undying Legion, (Prince on Chariot goes here).
3 Chariots - xxx
1 Tomb Scorpian - xxx
That all comes to 1493. Now my idea was to try and bunker round, with a terror causer on each end of my main battle line, with the chariots on the outer flanks. I've taken the casket to try and allow my lack of incantations not be effected too much, because of the saving dice issue, which i think could work, however it does make my Hierophant a bit stationary, so the bowmen are hanging nearby to accept the wounds. I could drop the casket, and give the hiero Cloak of Dunes and stick a SSC in, would make it a more offensive list, and would allow some more skellies in i think.
Anyway, i think this list will look nice on the table which is what, at the end of the day is important, but i have an inkiling it could do well, no one likes 2 units of chariots.
So what do you guys think?
PS still not entirley convinced of my magic item/banner combos, for those of you that replied to my thread on them, but at least you can see the list i had in mind now, and might be able to help me make the best of my units now you can see what they have to work in conjunction with
I like the 2 units of chariots, id like it even more if the other prince was mounted as well giving the chariots immense hitting power
hmmm... the main concern id have for this list is the hiro. Now I had a thought once upon a time running 3 units of chariots 2 princes, a king, and then the hiro on casket with the COD and the H-Jar or the COS. Much like you it was because I was worried about my magic getting off. But then I had this crazy thought that could surprise the hell out of your opponents. if some threat is to close for comfort at the start of your turn you can fly the priest away in the movement phase, the casket wont crumble because he was with it at the start of your turn and thus it will be there until the start of your next turn. you still get the bonus of having the terror to your side, and the -1 to casting values (for a turn) and if I’m not mistaken the casket of souls can still cast, also your hiro can help out your other units with his magic better than he could being in the same spot. Hopefully your opponent doesn't know much about TK that way in his turn he charges the casket and not the nearby skeletons, working as a good distraction for a turn and maybe even opening up a flank charge for you! I know, I know its sacrificing the casket, but better it than your hiro right?
Well, the casket of souls does need a lich priest manning it to fire off the light of undeath, so you do need to stay there if you want to use that, but otherwise you are right that it remains in play until the start of your next turn, causing terror and generally being creepy the whole time.
Overall it looks like a pretty decent list. I usually prefer a more offensive banner on my chariots like the icon of the sacred eye, but I can see the that one working really well too to help shrug off missile fire and magical attacks.
Tomb Scorpion Kill Counter: Gotrek Gurnisson, Empire Cannon Crew=3, Blood Knights=2, Saurus Cavalry=5, Saurus Warriors=3, Razordons=3, Skink warriors=7, Jezzails=8, Poison Wind Globadiers=10, Warp Lightning Cannon=1
yeah, the more i think about it, the more i realise that we have some really useful banners, there is a lot of choice to chose from, and most are pickable. With the 3 tomb swarms i do have the option of freeing up some points for a chariot for my 2nd prince maybe, and a different banner. Offensive banners are great, i just thought if my Hiero isn't flying around helping out, it'd be more useful if they could regen themselves, but i'm still unsure about the casket, but it should help my MWBD and my BotuL get off, will have to try to get some games in this weekend i guess
