Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey guys. I've been looking a lot at TK and wanted to get some input from you guys. Im slightly confused because everytime people talk about army tiers and all that jazz people put TK on the bottom and I've heard a lot of comments about TK in desperate need of a new book. I can see a new book being helpful to beef up some areas especially after VC getting better, but I dont see why TK is looked at as being weak.
I've been watching Vaul's battle reports and TK seems to have a lot. Sure you guys dont have any crushing knight or chaos warrior type units, but you guys still have a lot. Chariot units seem very strong. You have strong shooting with mass arrows and the skull thrower. Your magic makes your movement very good and also makes your shooting much better. You can raise hurt units back to health. Scorpions and your birds are great for getting behind enemy lines.
I mean I see what you guys have access to and I see how its executed thanks to Vaul's reports and I just dont see a weak army at all. Im not saying you dont deserve a new book or that your OP, Im just curious as to why you guys are put down so heavily when it comes to percieved army strength.
Lol. Yeah, i've seen some posts with this opinion too. And i really don't get it
In general, before the new HEs arrived (the frist of the new uber armies) most people generally agreed that TKs were in the top 3-5 armies. Personally I placed them second.
Then HE, VC, DE LM and DoC were released... and now some people are placing us near the bottom!? Very strange, especially considering that VCs and LM were amongst us in the top 5 before.
Very very strange.. but hey, jokes on them. If your opponant underestimates your army thats just another little advantage for you
Edit: Here is a perfect example... http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...nto-tiers.html
See my comments (and AFGs) in that thread.

I think they just don't good against immune to pyschology people, like demons/vc and slaanesh warriors. Also VC can out res them everyday of the week.

Could it be some people rating them have only played them in low point games where all our points go on heroes?
We do have a couple of units that when they do what they are supposed to do (Bone Giant, SSC) can be game breaking but thats not what drew them to me
I picked them up cause not only are there no TK players where i live but the army composition is awesome as they all rely on each other. No uber units or characters of death but a army that supports each other in tight structure that can prevail over most enemies if used right.
Then again there’s not much a few hundred arrows and lots of flaming skulls cant solve

I'd echo the hurt to being slannesh/other immune to psych armies hurting TK alot as of late. I'd still consider them to be middle of the road all things considered against most other armies if played well.
That is the key, if TK are played well they are potentially a threat to most armies out there. If not played well TK are seen as weak. No room for errors/mistakes in the army.
TK are still really solid, and dependable, that is what they have going for them, consistency.
They get a bad rap now because they have a harder match up vs VC and DOC, both large GT contenders.

Yeah I've been underestimated before when I bust out TK's. The nice thing though is that if you are a solid general, and you understand the TK mechanics, you are on the advantage right then. The thing most people don't know is that almost all of our units can come back. Chariots, SSC, even basic bowmen can all come back from the gra...sand. Its a terrifying spectacle and incredibly disheartening - which is why I love it so lol.
Truth is TK don't have an insane army wide rule like most in the top tier - HE and their always strike first, Daemon saves, etc. We are a balanced army that if played right, can wipe the floor with any opposing army. Except Chaos Dwarfs, they win out of principle.
