Welcome to Librarium Online!
wondering how to kit out my lord. also wheter to take high priest or king. high priest seems very expensive and king seems rather cool so curretly i am thinking about how to kit out my king
i was thinking great weapon to give him 4 s7 attacks as he will probably stike last against other characters due to low Initiative.
with: scorpion armor
what do you think - this is vs. bretonnains by the way so no spear of antahrak for me
If you want him to be VERY defensive, I would do it the same way as you.
but I would do is:
because, with your blade setep, you can still use your enchanted shield, and the opponent hasn't got ANY save, because your strength of 5 should be enough to wound them, you won't have to use the strength 7 attacks on normal knights
oh yeah thanks for poointing out that the enchanted shield and great weapon cannot go together. anyway, i have just started collecting and want a relativly cheap army around 2000 pts. i already have 3 chariots and 20 skellies with hand weapons, as well as 8 light cavalry. i customised a vampire necrarch for my liche priest. my opponent plays bretonnians with lots of knights and bowmen, hardly any men a arms though. what would you recommend i buy and how should i sturcture my army?
another question: are tomb kings a 'good army'. i know all armies are well balabced but does TK rquire v good generalship to win or are they quite easy to play? your rank out of 10?
well, tomb kings are a pretty hard army to play with, you should always use your magic the right way, that's what the army is all about.are tomb kings a 'good army'
but, there are two ways of playing, offensive (chariots, horsemen, bonegiant, etc.) or defensive (skeleton archers, screaming skull catapult, casket of souls, etc.).
I recommend the defensive playing, because the horsemen and chariots are the only real fast things in your army, but they are just to weak.
their best units?: scorpion, archers, screaming skull catapult, tomb guards, and carrions.
and for hints about bretonnia, you should check the tactics & strategy's topic, there is a khemri vs. brettonia topic on there, I've already said there what you should use against brettonia's.
back to the lord topic: Do you think the destroyer of eternities is worth the points. my opponent takes a duke on a hyppogrph and that would be 2 automatic s7 hits with kiiling blow on both (althougb kiling blow would not work on the large target)
well the way that I read the rules would mean that the blade of eternities would benefit from the additional attacking phase, the one other players call the magic phase, as it counts as a single attack, which is what each model gets from the magic spell wotsitsname
