Well after getting bored with the very one dimensional nature of Brets, I've decided to make the switch over to Tomb Kings. The TK appear to have a more diverse nature to the army list than the Brets and hopefully should be more challenging to play with. I just got my new army book today so I'm currently working on a starter army list for around 1000 - 1500 points (I know that generally TK don't accel at the smaller games, but I need a place to start at.) Also around early March I'll be entering my new TK army in a campaign at our local store (going to be either 2000 or 2250 points) so I'll have a list up for that soon. And lastly if I could get some people opinions on which lord choice they believe is stronger @ 2000 points, a Tomb King or a High Liche Priest. I know one is more melee oriented and the other a caster, but if people could list which they've had more success with I would appreciate it greatly.
Bored of Brets after only 5 games?:tongue:
I don't think Brets are that one dimensional, I think they look great on the table top and can have a vast array of varied units. From flying cavalry to knights, from skirmishers to war machines. It's all there.
But if your mind is set then fair play to you I think Tomb Kings will really challenge you as they are the hardest army to play IMO. Although once you do get the hang of them you'll find that they are very difficult to beat!
I like the TK as he allows you to take chariots as core, and he also has two spells himself. Not the highest power level I'll give you that, but a spell is a spell and it's something else for your opponent to have to think about^_^
Good luck, let us know how you fare
Lol nah those were the only game w/ Brets where I kept score, played 20-25 games that I just played for fun. Didn't like their lack of magic and just overall one dimensional-ness. They did have great models though, and I intend to finish painting mine up for show and as a secondary army for smaller games.
And for the record played a game w/ a store TK army last night, went pretty well. Played against a chaos guy with a khorne, each around 1250-1500 points. Only think was he had 2 rares, both DOW cannons that I let him use. Between my 20 man bowman units shooting, and my Ushabiti and chariots in CC, his 2 20 man units of knights on foot, (one unit was chosen) and his Aspiring Champion on a Juggernaught were massacred, leaving him with his 2 cannons and the hero in the cannon group. He conceded on turn 5.
Good game overall, very fun.

I prefer to use the Tomb King or Prince in smaller games because it allows to use the chariots as a core choice. This is really helpful as it allows you to use more tomb scorpions and Ushabti. As stated by Stonehambey, the Tomb King still has his two incantations that he can use, which still makes for a decent magic phase when combined with your other priests. Also, the Tomb King can be a beast in cc with some of the equipment he can be given. I would definitely suggest a couple chariot units and a large block of skeletons to bog down the enemy. Also, don't underestimate the skeletal bowmen. Sure, they have a low BS, but they also don't suffer from from any negative modifiers which allow them to move-and-shoot effectively. A definite suggestion is to put in a Screaming Skull Catapult as it can really help with your ranged attacks and with the Skulls of the Foe you may be able to break an advancing unit or two before they hit your lines. Utilize a Tomb Scorpion or Two to wreak havoc behind enemy lines, and possibly disrupt enemy war machine crews or lone wizards. Hope this helps!
My 2250 points campaign list is up on the army list section. Feel free to take a look and add some comments =D.
