Hey, I'm new to the forums and to WHFB, I accualy went and choose Tomb Kings so i thought it a better idea to start here in the forums.
So now that my spiel is complete, here are some questions!
I am going to set up spearmen, but I'm confused is having the extra pieces...just pointless, i mean after i glue the spears shields etc together is that...it I'm stuck with bits?
or is there a way to take them apart and remake units? please help corpse bros
the bits you can use for other models/conversions/makeyourownstuff. Spearmen are generally accepted as bad. they cost too much for what they do and the axtra attacks arn't worth it. Personally, I just go with bowmen but others use the hand weapon/shield combo. what ever works for you. You could also keep the spears on your models and then just claim they're hand weapons. I'm sure no one would mind ^^
Welcome to the Legions of Librarium
Im gonna start you off with a handy little link to something i wrote a while back...

Hope you find it useful And feel free to ask any questions etc you have there (although over time, many issued have been covered in the answering of others' questions lol.)
Thx, mos def helps
Btw, isn't a spear tech. a HW anyway or do spears go into another class type of weaponry?
And because im about 4lbs of noob, why isn't that extra attack worth it from spear units, because if i understand right both ranks could engage
Skellies are WS2, they cant hit anything. Skellies are also S3. They cant wound anything (in practical terms ) The points you spend on that extra rank of attacks just got wasted, and now youre about to be hit hard due to your poor armour save / the enemy unit is still at full strength as you didnt shoot it with bows earlier.

WiP TK Army!
Yea i agree SW with spears dont do so well and in combat if u dont charge u attack last and they could do so much damage to u that u would only get 1 rank to attack instead of 2 and then in combat resolution since your armor saves are only 5 its hard to get those saves off. Also even if u did charge you still only get 1 rank to attack so it kinda doesnt work out with the TK army getting ot fight in two rank. I find that my SW with light armor and shield do much better in combat.
thats what i think about the SW with spears.
But they can be usefull for flank charges cause then they could fight in two ranks. Also what phoenix said since our WS is 2 and S 3 it doesnt really help out when vsing things with WS5 and T4-T5.
