Welcome to Librarium Online!
I had an idea for an army some time ago but never really got round to doing it, but following a long overdue raise at work an the completion of my dogs of war I wanted something new.
The idea behind the army is an undead horde awakened on the island of Albion either due to foreign invassion or due to the machinations of the dark forces. As a result it will have a fairly celtic/ancient British feel with chariots, skirmishing light horse, skeleton foot and tomb guard. Also druids instead of Liche priests.
The army uses the tomb king rules for the chariots, kings and princes, wight lords and princes, druids, tomb guard, refered to as wights and light horse, which will be converted to carry javelins but will use the skeletons and wights to represent them.
Magic will be the same but the names of the spells will be changed as will the magic items.
At the moment swarms, heavy horse carrion, bone giants, tomb scorpions, screaming skull catapults and Ushabti have no place.
I was just wondering how would this army fare, I want fluff but don't want an army that just loses.
Also If any of the units currantly left out is essential any ideas as how to represent them?
I thought about creating my own rules but wanted an army that could be used legally.
Interesting, a full Chariot army could definitely work. Scorps would be nice, but if you need to put them on hold til you can find a way to fit them in, then Chariots should serve you well
you could paint them with war paint like savage orcs, or dwarf slayers. that would look quite cool. i recon that carrion would be able to find a place in the army, as giant crows or something. maybe the TS could be more of a crab and less scorpion like. might work.
I like it!
You definitely want to woad (blue clay) them up. No self-respecting Barrow King would go into a battle un-woaded.
Maybe some bagpipes for the musicians? I think there is a dwarf model with bagpipes.
There is also a squig herder with pipes and a kilt. Might be hard to convert though.
For the greater good, my will be done!
