Yea.. I said it.. lol. I'm thinking TK's should get some sort of racial thing to be able to shoot in ranks.. or at least 2 ranks of shooters. I mean... they're dead...let alone skeletons.. they can't see anyways >.< what's stopping them! That and we have the all mighty Arrows of the Asp! Just point and shoot. What do you guys think? Think this would be a nice addition to TK's when they get redone? And do you think it would be an effective change to the race as a whole?
I know.. I think up strange things when I'm bored at work lol
It would actually be really cool, nice idea!
Another idea, based on yours:
Able to shoot in blocks but with a -1 penalty to BS (always hits on 6s). It's so funny to make up ideas rep for your inspiration!

WiP TK Army!
haha thanks I was even thinking about a banner that allowed an extra rank of shooting or perhaps one that added +1 to hit for your archers. Or both! lol but I have a feeling that would be a pricey banner
Well it would certainly make our archers more effective. Doubtless it would be a popular bonus around here with us TK players but I would imagine the other (ostensibly shooty) armies might justifyably feel a bit put out about it.
In the mean time, why don't you just use more hills?
Because Sun Tzu would play Tomb Kings...
Yeah...archers are quite nice on a hill...2x10, until/unless trouble comes calling, then reform into 5x4 and prepare to recieve a charge!

Either stand on a hill in 2 ranks as already said, or rank up for combat and aim everyone at a large target
I really like the idea of shooting from 2 ranks. I think that logic should also apply to being shot at. Skeles and the like should get -1 to be shot at. I mean come on, they have like 50% less surface area due to lack of skin and muscle. They would obviously be harder to hit. I would also like to see the arrows of the asp being magical, although this may come from playing VC alot and going against Cairn Wraiths.
I would be annoyed if the TKs were to get this rule, becaues my main army is the High Elves, and a lot of High Elf players have been crying out for shoot in two ranks for a long time, but haven't received it.
To be honest, I don't think it's really fair for one race's missile troops to shoot in two ranks while everyone else sticks with one. I'd prefer to see it as a rule for bows in general, since they seem relatively underpowered compared with crossbows and handguns. Let all short bows, bows and longbows fire in two ranks.
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.
