    Need Some Help With Warbands

    EDIT: Didn;t realize that I was posting in the army list section. Sorry! Mods feel free to move it if need be!

    Hello everyone,

    I've been playing Empire for years and have recently used the 500pnt warband campaign to start making the TK army that I've always wanted to create. I have only played two games with my TK(both 500 points) but have had losses in both.

    The first was a loss to OK while I was teamed up with Deamons(250 points per side). We were going to win until the Deamons hero was chased off the table in turn 6.....

    The second I fought a LM and HE team. It was also close but my got wiped out which caused my army to crumble.

    I have been looking through the forums and the other warbands threads have helped but I was wondering if I could get some general advice about lists and tactics for my specific army. The campaign includes myself and the four other armies that I mentioned.

    Here are my models:

    -TP on foot
    -LP on foot
    -20 Skellies that I haven't put shields on yet so can still be Bowmen
    -10 Bowmen
    -3 Chariots
    -2 Ushabtis
    -6 Light Horsemen
    -Tomb Scorpian

    So mounted units have a min of 2 and foot units have a min of 3. You cannot spend more than 150 points on heroes as well.

    Any help would be very appreciated!

    Do at least field a Scorpion, hehe

    Focus Bowmen, LOTS of Bowmen And I would say, have no TP or LP... They will sink the points needed for troops

    I would agree with Nagash on the scorpion and the no heroes. In a TK warband any unit with full command can cast 1 invocation on themselves during the magic phase if you do not have a priest or prince in your army. I'd load up on units of skellies with command.

    You could get 4 units of 10 skellies with command and a scorpion for 420 points.

    With the rest of the points you could get an icon bearer using your prince model and maybe a weak magic item to lead.
    You could also get an Ushabti, or 5 light horsemen.

    This is actually really interesting for me because I'm just starting an warband escalation game with my friends, trying to get a few new people interested.

    We are actually going to try to combine it with the border princes campaign for a little extra depth. We'll have a map and the warbands will move across it conquering areas.

    Thanks for the replies!

    I'm not sure about not fielding a TP. The only command that I have is for the skeleton regiment. What should I do about this?

    Since you can only have 2 specials I can't have Ushabtis, Chariots and my scorpian. Right now my list is:

    TP -CoS, GW
    5 Horseman
    15 Skellies with standard(prince here)
    Scorpian
    2 Chariots

    Any suggestions?

    Do not field a Prince! No offense mate, but he will do you no good

    Here is something to consider.
    If you take a prince, he can cast smiting or urgency on himself or his unit, and that is all the magic you get.
    If you do not have a prince, each unit with command can cast smiting, summoning or urgency on itself.

    You actually weaken your incantations by taking a prince. I'm not sure what to tell you about not having command models though.

    How about this list for Warbands. Also here are the full warband rules in PDF http://www.warfan.net/Warbands.pdf

    Core -
    20 Skeleton warriors 185 pts
    Bows, Full Command

    5 Light Horsemen 105 pts
    Full Command

    Special -
    1 Tomb Scorpion 85 pts

    3 Chariots 120 pts

    Total 495

    This list has the ability to be very shooty and with the chariots and scorpion deadly in CC i believe.
