Welcome to Librarium Online!
Recently I discovered the awesomeness of the Heavy Metal genre and specifically the band Iron Maiden! Their music is just plain awesome! The lyrics, the guitar playing, the drumming and the singing talent of both Paul in their earlier albums and Bruce from the majority of their other albums. The cover art of every Iron maiden album with their mascot Eddie in the foreground is always different in each album and always looks unique and awesome. Overall the band is excellent!
However there is one album that really sticks in my mind, and that's the "Powerslave" album. Not only is it one of their best albums, but it's also very Tomb King-y. First of all, the cover of the album shows our favorite undead mascot Eddie as an egyptian statue on a temple! This Just screams "Tomb Kings terrain." In fact, if I ever get the skill and materials to make a miniature scale replica of the album cover I'm gonna make it!
Secondly, the song powerslave is very Egyptian themed itself and it really nails the egyptian slave feel. Everything from the guitars to the vocals are great in this song! I can't put into words how awesome this song works with the Tomb Kings army.
So, if any Tomb King players are looking for terrain ideas or a song to play during their turns, check out the powerslave album. It's pretty awesome!
Yer - it goes without saying that Iron maiden are awesome.
There are by far and away the best british metal band - and one of the top 5 greates metal bands of all time.
I see where your coming with the powerslave album - when u mentioned it i had to go double check with my CD case but your right, but you dould probably feature in just a converted sphinx as terrian.
If you wanted your Tomb Kings army to remble a Tomb Kings army that has just come out of the Powerslave album - then i know that games workshop did some ace models bout 15 years ago - when u weren't even around and if you could take some of the weapons from the old 40k slannesh heavy weapons troops and convert them to be on skeles then you could actually have your own undead Iron Maiden either leading your army as unit champs or just as a terrain piece - it would look ub3r kewl. - the reason i say slannesh heavy weapons troops is because their guns emite deathly sound waves that rip the enemy apart inside (or something to that effect) and they all look like they are armed with big electric guitars

WiP TK Army!
AL, i see you're 15... same age i was when i discovered the legends that are IRON MAIDEN!!!
And Powerslave has to be one of the greatest albums of all time!
Need to disagree on one thing, Paul's vocals were not that great, but Bruce is a GOD! And he covers the other guys stuff (Paul and Blaze) soooo well, which is awesome.
Oh man, someone please make an Eddieshabti! It would make me happy
I do think that Bruce's voice has a better range and is much clearer but paul's voice works so perfectly for the song "prowler" As for eddie conversions, I think that I'd need some green stuff if I want to give him the crazy hair he had on the first Iron Maiden album. However, I think I would rather have eddie be the main terrrain piece on the table as a tribute to Powerslave. On the subject of conversions I made a pretty cool tomb king conversion! It's a Casket Liche priest with scorpion legs for arms. HE also has scorpion legs protruding out of his back and out of the sand in front of him. I call him THE REAL SCORPION KING!
or it didnt happen...
No, I made it all right, I just haven't painted it and I'm too lazy to get a picture of it I want to give it a bigger stand and put a scorpion tail on it eventually. Though I need to buy a new scorpion to make that happen.
