Hello there fellow players!
I'm asking some advices on which units should I buy when I'm going to start Tomb Kings. I don't know anything about the army except that they look badass. So in short which unit should I get and which not. By the looks the ushabtis and every new miniatures look kewl :3.
IMO .. if your starting out and do not have a list your wanting to build . this would cover a lot of stuff.
25 - 30 tomb guards
3-6 Necropolis Knights
2-4 liche priests
3-6 ushabti ( only cause you mentioned it .. not sure how good these will be )
1 tomb king
x random other chars you may like
Things NOT TO GET ... Anything on a horse ! and carrions.
Don't bother with stalkers swarms or scorpions there all fairly poor =P So is the necrosphinx to an extent hes not awful hes just no where near as good as the khemrian warsphinx so it seems pointless to field him when you can have a much better monster for a special choice.
Should the ushabtis be with bows or great weapons?

i just think there are better options.. and i dont think there worth the extra points.. i have never found a good reason to use them nor do they fit in ANY army list iv seen or made. But again .. these are just my opinoins..Originally Posted by gwedo18 (Starting Tomb Kings, help wanted!)

Why wouldn't you buy these? These are good options to have as re-directors and war machine killers. Goldi agree with the OTher post.. these dudes are Really Good imo and the ones i have fielded have proven to be game changers .. oh and they fly so they can get around so easy..So is the necrosphinx to an extent hes not awful hes just no where near as good as the khemrian warsphinx so it seems pointless to field him when you can have a much better monster for a special choice.i still dont think these are worth having right now.. and as some other people have posted they tried them and took them out too.. but if you do run them.. id go with great weapons... ( but i havnt used them.. or tried with bows as you couldnt in the old edition. )Should the ushabtis be with bows or great weapons?
I would suggest not even starting the hobby, or buying second hand to get into the hobby. Check out alternative models to represent GW ones. This will become a money sink. I was lucky to think ahead and purchase a great second hand army 2 years ago.
Personally i would love to fight more dark elves but there are none at my show because they are on eof the most boring armies to play ever (i should know i have an army of them!) because it requires no brain power =/ I always bring the flaming banner in my lists tho and the screaming skull catapult just in case (and because its a torny list). I play the hellpit every so often i find the warsphinx kills it faster than a necrosphinx does (unless you got lucky with the one HKB attack) breath on it and then grind it out it doesn't just you because your awsome =P
First off, I wouldnt buy anything at full retail.. sorry Games Workshop If I was you, I would troll for a bit over at Bartertown.com forums under the fantasy for sale. Sometimes you find some good deals.
I would START by getting 50 HW/Shield skeletons, full command and a prince/king for them
get a priest and 15-20 archers to stick him in.
25-30 Tomb Guard, Full Command and a prince/king for them also!!
That is where I would start. But Ive been playing the HW skele horde and its rockin!!
