Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey all, for starters im new here and i just got my TK army up and running recently.
First game i played 3k (i had 2 proxy alot) against lizzies
i decided i wanted to play some dfense cuz my first army was dwarfs
i had 2 SSC and a Casket...
my opponent was stupid and only had 2 DD (CHEERS!) needless to say i got off all but one INC then got my casket off
Lets just say he had about 4 units of just Suarus Warrios(sp?) and 2 stegadons and the warriors all got killed with SSC before they moved, i had freaking amzing guesses on SSC granted i do play a heavy artillery army before. then the casket went off and killed both of his stegadons in one turn the only things left were his general and skink kroxigor combo unit
he went from beginning the game with a full army to less than half of his army alive b4 he coudl move
I LOVE TK lulz

Wow you were really lucky! Good thing your opponent wasn't using a skink-heavy army! In a three way battle my lizardmen opponent crushed my friend's empire army by swarming him with skinks with poison attacks! I think your dwarf opponent's biggest mistake was not taking enough runesmith's as you mentioned earlier because he basically just gave you the magic phase. And keep up the good guesses with the SSC last weekend I got a few good guesses but then my dice were being dissagreeable with me and they kept messing me up! I hope you continue your success with tomb kings! TK is an army with great models and a unique playing style and they are definitely a fun army to play (especially when you win) TK FTW!
Yes! Thank you! Finally some evidence that the new lizzies are not uber, and that Tomb Kings DO NOT SUCK! (both have seemed popular opinions on LO recently, much to my irritation )
It's good to see something positive up here I agree!
Not to be a downer but I gotta question his list if at 3K he only had 2 stegadons and 2 DD. WTF was he going to do with no EotG, no Slann, no dispel scrolls, and only 2 stegadons. At 3k you should have easily faced 4+ stegadons and a few of them would be EotG.
I don't want to rain on your parade but I wouldn't count out LM based on your results. Your opponent likely took some of their worst units and came in way unprepared. EotG absolutely rip up undead. He had no magic phase and from what it sounds like you had incredible luck with your casket and SSCs (wiped out 4 units before they moved??? Unless the dice were with you, saurus wars are almost impossible to panic).
I also have to ? his leaving his Stegs within LOS of your casket knowing what was coming...you must have rolled well on those dice as well (at least a 9+)
I don't think TK are as underpowered as many claim them to be, but I also don't believe your results would be consistent with what 99% of other TK players will get when they face LM. LM are pretty much made to deal with DoC, TK and VC. EotG are the bane of all things undead.
There is nothing wrong with having good luck and mopping the floor with one of the precieved "overpowered armies". I just woudln't consider your experience to be a proper representation of true LM power......
And going by the final line S_J enjoyed the game and enjoyed the army Which is what counts.
If it makes his opponant go away and think about his army then that is also a fantastic thing. I get far more out of losing (to a good opponant, not a to bad winner) than i do from winning a game.
i guessed right on everytime for the SSC (maybe off and inch but artillery dice were with me) and i killed maybe 2 per group
now the funny part is, he coudl roll on three dice for his panic test but he coudl pick which two he used.... on three of them he rolled box cars and a 4 or 5 the last one he rolled one over his LD so yes the dice were definetly with me and i dont expect it to go that way again
and for his stegs... im the first in my gaming group to pick up TK he had no idea what it did. he placed his stegs at flanks along with cold ones and again amazing dice rolls
by far best dice rolls ive ever had

thats why i played defense cuz i know the power of sitting back and dwindling an army down with superior firepower =]
how?now the funny part is, he coudl roll on three dice for his panic test but he coudl pick which two he used
DOE on 2's LOL
