    Rising my Liche

    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 ^^

    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.

    Take it easy Phoenix, hehe Spearmen CAN do good, but I would also prefer Bowmen as a first choice...



    My first Skellies... How I hate them They have mixed weapons the whole bunch of them!!! Tip: Make all your Skellies with either HW+S or Bows

    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.
