I want to know, which one is Your Fav. Special Choice? Remember to count effectiveness, fluff and whatever you can imagine...
Please, add a post when you have voted! In this post I want you to describe what you voted and why (in detail - as far as possible) you voted as you did
I thank you All for helping me with my research
//Nagash, the Corrupt
I voted for Carrions
The fluff for Carrions are just THAT awesome - as well as how the models look :awesome:
They are very fast flyers with 2W T3... In Groups of five or more, they can eat several regiments every turn and negate rank bonuses with a charge of up to 40 inches!
I can't think of a Unit that can take out Enemy units that effective for the same cost - why I value their work more than the work of a True Combatant, since using Carrions needs finesse

This was a tricky one for me since I routinely use them all bar Ushabti. Ultimately though I went for Tomb Scorpions. Damn I love those things!
I could give a disturbingly long list of reasons (but since the generally accepted awesomeness of the TS is just about the only thing we can all routinely agree about ) I'll just skip to the hilights:
I have a scratchbulit scorp I'm particularly proud of named Janine. I named it after my ex, she was also a real bitch.
I'm particularly fond of sending Janine off to bitch slap my opponents war machines and wizards. So many RBTs, so little time...
And when Janine dies a horrible death after the afore mentioned suicide run, it's all good.
But I ain't bitter!
Because Sun Tzu would play Tomb Kings...
I went with (probably a bit hastily, as i love the Ushabti models...) the ever awesome Tomb Scorpion Great model, fantastic rules set and always a good addition to any army.
Haha Vallah I would be very proud of a Scorp like that
Of course this is a difficult choice - I mean, TK is shaped from Special (they act as a semi-core in some way ), so whatever you choose you'll get something good.
Good Votes this far!
Phoenix: Thanks for deleting that thread for me
Scorpions for me as i haven't used carrion or ushabti yet, they'd have to be pretty awesome to outrank my scorps though, my opponents change their whole game plans to deal with these guys.
Ok so i chose Tomb Guard, I know many people think they are expensive and blah blah, but they are just badarse. I typically take them every game and are totally worth the points. As for ushabti i love em, but they always seem to die before they can get anything done, and scorps are nice, but ive misfired with them a few times.
So Tomb Guard are my favourite special, always reliable and handle anything in their way. ST4 T4 killing blow magical attacks=sexy. Also their models are outstanding looking, even though i dont own them.
oh and Carrion cant charge 40''....can they?
with abit of magic they can
Yeah MAGIC for the WIN !
i went scorpion! ICFB or deployed as normal in the games ive had theyve only failed me once which was where i completely fluffed. 12 attacks over 2 turns and i hit ONCE.though off subject....that same game my ninja skeleton bowmen champion killed TWO chaos knights. one in a challenge and a second the one after
