How, do you kill one?
Is there any way to do this without praying for SSC to hit?
I've played empire a couple times, each time there is steam tank.
I have yet to wound it.
is there anything i can do to it?
I say only one thing, and I'll only say it once:
It must be a rear charge
Ask Nagash! Click on the banner...
WiP TK Army!
i would agree, but its always that they are needed just as importantly somewhere else.
Like for a unit of Knights.
And how on earth do you get a rear charge off?
i need to know that!
i played a steam tank with my TKs and i only managed to kill it because a tomb scorpion lived after 5D3 impact hits and then i flanked it with a bone giant (yes i know that was a fluke but its a great story considering that scorpion later killed volkmar)
id have to agree with nagash about ushabti however i would say a flank instead of a rear. more attacks that way
how did the scorpion do that?
I have had units TG (25) get halved by that thing
basicaly, there were 10 hits, 2 wounds and i was in range of my BSB
as i said, it was as flukey as hell but in warhammer, you take any advantage you get given
Thanks for the help, I will try Ushabti next time. Hopefully it will turn out well!
I would say start with the SSC. See if you can land a hit on it. Even if you don't break it, the wounds will slow it down drastically. That failing Ushabti are a good bet. A Tomb King with a great weapon will cut it up easily too but I don't think I'd want to risk my general that close to that thing. Tomb scorpions work too if there is nothing better to assassinate.
Tomb Scorpion Kill Counter: Gotrek Gurnisson, Empire Cannon Crew=3, Blood Knights=2, Saurus Cavalry=5, Saurus Warriors=3, Razordons=3, Skink warriors=7, Jezzails=8, Poison Wind Globadiers=10, Warp Lightning Cannon=1
I've tried Catapults, i like catapults
its just there to risky for me (more often the not...they scatter far away for me)
i tried using a king with a great weapon in a unit of TG
It took 2 turns for that Tank to smush them
