    Flock of....Carrion????

    Ok.. another question..another strange post. I'm not sure if this is even possible or if this would even be a good idea. I was watching Vaul's video battle reports and I noticed how effective his 3 carrion were. Is it possible to have a TK with the CoD's join a unit of Carrion to create a nasty little assault troop?

    I don't think so...interesting thought, though.

    Answer nailed here, hehe Nice Phoenix to see you post!

    However, you could always let the king just fly behind the Carrions so that he is shielded from view Or you could use five Carrions as I would suggest... But don't listen to me if it sounds unreliable

    Many smilies in one post... Tried to erase some of them ^^

    Hmmmm Take a TK with the SoA, Scorpion Armour, and the CoD's and stick him behind a unit of Carrion. He can always Urgency himself so he can maneuver extremely easily taking out a lot of small/ single units or crews with the Carrion. Once again... I'm inexperienced and not sure how well he would do. I know it's bad to attack large units of course

    Well he would actually do very well in the above situation actually. However (and it's a biggie):

    It's overkill of the highest order TBH. You're talking about using a king that would set you back around 260 pts or so and yet more points -72 or 120- for the carrion.

    For the light targets you mentioned the carrion are usually more than enough to get the job done on their own. It would be a waste to use the king on such menial tasks when you could give him the DoE and have him actually get his points worth back for you.

    NB. Scorpion armour and SoA (A.K.A 'The survivor king') is a very specialised set up. It's primary use is as a defensive tar pit to hold up an enemy unit. In 99% of cases it is a bit of a waste IMHO as there are much better (ie. more offensive) ways to deploy the king.
    Because Sun Tzu would play Tomb Kings...
