A couple questions came up the other day between me and a couple friends about the nature of a couple Tomb King spells, and such.
Most of these were solved by the FAQ and Erratas, but I still have a couple that I would like someones input on other than mine and his. Also, if you could a page number for reference would be greatly appreciated.
For the Tomb King spells, excluding the magic missile, do they require line of sight. Oddly enough all I remember is the magic section talking about magic missile spells follow the rules for shooting, thus requiring LOS. For spells just as the Summoning, Urgency, and Smiting, all it says is "target Tomb King unit within 12" do I also require LOS to the unit I am casting on. I always have assumed so, but just would like to confirm.
According to the FAQ High Queen Khalida counts as a Tomb King, so would that mean in addition to her unstoppable Smiting spell and staff, she gets 2 incantations all other Tomb Kings get or no?
1. No, they don't require LoS. Only magic missiles and spells that specifically say so require LoS.
2. Yes, she gets 2 incantations like other Kings. I honestly don't know if the uber incantation counts as one of them or not though, it looks like it does from its wording. The staff is definitely in addition to whatever else she casts as it is a bound spell.
My understanding is that Khalida occupies a Lord slot but has none of the usual incantations associated with an actual Tomb King.
She has the unstoppable Smiting and lets archers poison the enemies from the skies.
The staff is a small bonus but that's all for the magic phase as far as I know.
She's still cool though and one battle I had resulted in Khalida and a Prince being the only models left on my as their TG block slowly disintegrated.
