http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ml#post1598678 (Tomb Kings due May 2010?)
Follow that guys My thoughts are in the 5th post or so. Let me hear your thoughts (and reaction to my comments if you like lol)
I've read those before.
And I do like them a lot!
Here's hoping they are true.
Well except the Tomb Guard one, that is just not right!
This rumour has been doing the rounds for quite a while now. There's nothing new here.
Because Sun Tzu would play Tomb Kings...
Thanks for the link, Phoenix Quite expectable changes there
It reads like a combination of vivid wishlisting with a smattering of actually legit changes. I thought the OP of that thread on Warseer was on crack and I still do.
The Casket and Ushabti changes alone make me think that crack was some really strong stuff.
Hey This once again came from warseer
Posting it, so we can mull over it
I think its awesome, and hope for it to be true
Tomb king/prince: s5. new mounts - a giant carrion called a rock, a royal chariot (heavy chariot with bells), and a construct (skelebeast style thing). special curses available.
Liche priest: new incantation rules. lesser priests can be taken in units. rip-style stuff.
Icon bearer: a tomb guard hero, with a bsb that gives -1 to crumble within 12". gets a special incantation from his banner.
Shawabti: construct hero. counts as lesser priest.
Skeleton warriors: come with bows. may have spears and shields for +1. light armour option. cheaper.
Skeleton cavalry: come with bows, may swap to spears. fast cav, cheaper.
Skeleton light chariots: core now.
Tomb swarms: 3w, 3a undead swarms. 25pts, m5. can be given 10" flight and/or poison.
Tomb guard: cheaper.
Tomb scorpion: new construct rules. new killing blow/poison rules. can be upgraded to count as a lesser priest.
Ushabti: new construct rules. s5 with halberds, and other equipment/command options. cheaper.
Carrion: cheaper. a big one called a rock.
Heavy cavalry: same as core cav, with +1ws, light armour, shield, and spear. may swap shield and spear for flail. cheaper.
Heavy chariot: proper chariot.
Desert stalkers: skellies with two handweapons or bows, and poison. may scout or upgrade to icfb. robes.
Godblooded: new elite (better than tg). greatweapons. bonuses based on chosen god - sun god acts like mark of nurgle. animal death masks.
Bone giant: new construct rules. +1ws. equipment options. cheaper. may count as a banner.
Catapult: multiple ammunition types - burning skull, screaming skull, swarming skull, weeping skull.
Casket: different "modes". boosts priest's incantations.
The embalmed: mummies. no crumble. t5, regen, 2w.
Tomb sphynx: desert spirit/construct. moves as ethereal. better stats than scorpion. may icfb when on the field. base-contact template sandstorm
Hmm... those seem more like a players wishlist than GWs work, too many "this would be cool if..." options, like on the SSC. Still, one can hope
Hehe, really interesting things in your list there gdsora I hope (but still I don't want my dear TK to change at all )
Still...this rumor/wishlist is one of the best ones overall I've seen so far.
I'd be completely content with Tomb Guard being moved to Core. Anything above and beyond that is just gravy in my mind. This list looks to be the most believable list of the sort for us that I've seen thus far which leads me to believe that either people are getting better at faking rumors or we're getting closer to the truth.
Edit: Although the addition of Rocs is messing with me. Do you know how big Rocs are? They were HUGE!!!
