    Heavy Calvary

    I just finished up my first set of tomb king heavy calvary. I know they are a lot of points but really they are not, skeletons cost 10 each with a 5+ armor save and move of 4, they cost 16 with 4+ armor save and a move of 8. This gives my chariots a much needed unit. They hit the front while my chariots flank. I was just curious how many should I have in a unit? It's 168 points for 8 with a full command, calvary only needs to be 4 wide for the rank bonus or am I wrong and I need 5? Also would it be worth using 12-15 of them in a unit to absorbe hits before impact and what does everyone think of banners? Any tips could help!

    Cav still need to be 5 wide for a Rank bonus. If you want some, id recommend using them 6 wide, in a unit of 12, with Full Command and a Magic Banner (BotUL specifically, or a Warbanner if the UL is used elsewhere)
