Welcome to Librarium Online!
ok i am currently working on a friendly 3k game list...
i have both a TK(in the bigger chariot unit with spear to regain got him to a 3+ AS) and HLP and 3 other LPs
i am seriously debating what units to take for a center anvil
I am definettly using a 20 block of TG with BotUL in the very middle
i want to decide wether to put chariots right next to them on both sides or two units of 4 Ushabti...
archers are infront in a line but will reform when it is time to move out.
i have a casket and 2 SSC to make them come to me.
and i am very magic strong with an HLP with SoM, Plaque to i have +1 and rerolls so he will deffinetly be pressured in magic.
so what do you guys think?
ushabti in center with TG
or will the chariots be more effective with impacts charging the front with ushabti trying to get the flank
or vice versa?

Well, as far as im aware chariots still get impact hits for flank charges, also they are more movable so it is sensible to make them flank as they can move the extra distance required etc.
I wish you Luck!
- You can't have TWO Arcane Items with your LHP, sorry but you can't . In case of choosing between the Plaques and the SoM I would definitely take the Plaques (It is are far more valuable). So, you could give him a nice save from either the CoS (Collar of Shapesh - NOT Casket of Souls) or the GA.
- I suggest that you field some Carrions. The march-block you are able to do with them is VERY valuable when planning an Anvil tactic. That makes the movement of the enemy much better according to your tactic in having 2 SSC and one Casket. Focus in weakening the enemy on it's way to you. This tactic note would ofcourse not work if playng vs Dwarfs.
- When the enemy arrives you most likely would press them down in the mud, this with units such as Ushabtis, Chariots, TGs adn BGs. Remember that if you make them flee, they will have a little chance of causing damage to you for the remainder of the battle, for they have to strafe towards the Casket once again. The best way in doing this is to have several units taking out the enemy units (one by one). One frontial charge by a large regiment will do, accompanied by hard-hitters such as the listed above.
- As Fuzzyspuz said: Use the movement speed of the faster units to your advantage. Movement is also a fact... not to be taken lightly .
Generally i think Ushabti make more of a solid central unit. Flank with the Chariots. And please use capital letters S_J.
