Welcome to Librarium Online!
I would like to start TK and I am thinking of using this as my first 2250 list.
LORD: King w/ Destroyer, Collar = 265 pts.
HEROES: Priest w/ Cloak and Jar = 160 pts.
Priest w/ steed and staff of ravening = 168 pts.
Priest w/ Casket and Anhkra = 225 pts.
CORE: 2x20 Warriors w/ bows, champ, standard, 1 w/ Banner of Undying Legion = 385 pts.
SPECIAL: 5 Carrion
24 Tomb Guard w/ champ, standard, Icon of Rakaph = 352 pts.
That leaves 135 pts. I am also considering dropping down to 19 Tomb Guard which would give me 195 pts. My choices for the rest of the list are: Catapult, 1-2 Scorpions, more Carrion, or some Swarms(maybe to guard my Casket/Catapult from surprises). I have not played with or against TK before so any help is most appreciated. Thanks.
I would definately add an SSC (at least one is generally considered mandatory) and I'd fill the last two special slots with scorpions. That lot will set you back 280 pts so I would drop one of the bow units to accomodate them.
I'd probably tinker with the list a bit to drop the golden ankhara (and possibly a couple of TG) to add a core unit of 5 light cav for you SoRav priest.
That should leave you with a pretty solid list methinks.
Because Sun Tzu would play Tomb Kings...
Vallah pretty much covered what I would add, although I think I'd "make space" a little differently.
I'd drop the Tomb Guard to 19, the Anhkra and Staff of Ravening, add a SSC with Skulls of the Foe and two Scorpions and try to squeeze the points for a Dispel Scroll. Maybe even turn those two Chariot units into one unit of 4 and use the points there to grab the Light Cavalry bunker for your steed-Liche.
Suggestions all look good to me. I can't really think of anything to add.
I do have to agree with lowering the TG to 19 from 24. I've never needed any more TG than this to get the job done.
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
Well, I mis-added the points. I actually have 235 not 135. So I can get the 2 Scorpions and SSC if I drop the TG down to 19. Also I was thinking of replacing the steed priest with a Prince on chariot with the Spear of Antarakh. Another thought was to drop the Anhkra on the Casket priest in order to bump the second chariot group up to 4 as well. Thoughts?
