i have seen some of the all chariot army list and wanted to try one out which unit would be more effective in an all charioit list, scorpions or swarms?
Beer, Pipes, and Guns... Dwarves had the right idea.
They have more wounds, are very cost effective, and get alot of poison attacks. they can also have a greater Unit Strength than a scorpion, wich helps when flanking or taking on crews.
The scorpions would be better in a standard list, as they had a good punch, but chariots already hit like a truck!
I beg to differ.
The movement of a swarm is a samll 4. While the Tomb Scorpion has a 7, much better as you will not have to waste incantations on making it move from crew to crew. The Tomb Scorpion is much more resistant to Magic, Crumbling ,and Loss of W do to Combat res. And as an Undead contruct they also get a shiny armor save which will keep them living longer under the hail of arrows you should expect.
While cost wise the swarm is cheaper, in my experiance swarms are not great with only two bases (which is about the cost of a Tomb Scorpion).
I hope that helps, good luck with that.

Personally, I just use both, or just swarms if I don't have a free special choice. Swarms aren't as powerful, but they're cheaper and have more wounds (though lower toughness still makes them less survivable.

I need to say this scorpion!!!!!!!! and swarms. Scorpion is used to attack warmachines. Swarms are a sucidal unit. I learned this in my expierrence. Yes i spelled the word wrong. But anyway yeah use both you can do that you know. I plan on using 2-
3 scorpions they rock. Swarms just have 5. They occupy something u don't wanna fight right away. So yeah PANTS.
Im aiming for a fearsome infestation that will overrun the enemy and Knock him out psychologically. I think I'm almost there.
