    Lord/Hero setup

    Okay, I was wondering what the most popular character setup was for us Tomb Kings Players at 2000pts. Tomb King or Liche High Priest. Four characters or Three?

    I can't say that I've really looked at 2k yet as I'm still in the process of assembling my first thousand. But you might want to take the last option off the poll as at 2k you can't take two lords.

    EDIT: Second to last option.

    I take either a King, prince and two priests, or a LHP, prince and two more priests. Of late, I have been favoring the King led combination as I can have a character packing a punch in hand to hand, although I have had to learn to rely less on magic to see my plans through. Pile up with 6-9 chariots, a couple of scorpions for fast movement.

    (...however, at 3000 and two lords, I would take a King and Lich highpriest.)


    Oh. I stopped taking the LHP at 2K because I found my magic almost seemed to be overkill. Facing a particular elf player(3-4casters) though and I would need overkill...

    King, prince, priest, priest.

    The combat ability of kings and princes is pretty damn good, I want them supporting units that need a few more kills to win combat. And of course the army needs strong magic, so two priests to give that.

    I'd never go for a LHP at 2k because I value chariots too much and need them as core choices.

    HLP, LP, LP, TP- I love this magic boost that HLP gives me.

    Like Silmerosse i have only just started my TK army but if i was going pick for 2k i would go for King and three liche priests, just for the fact that the prince doesnt add much killiness (need to check if thats a real word), and the fact that the TKs arnt the best cc army in WFB i think that at least one character needs to be able to stand up in challenges etc. Also the fact that you get the same amount of possible incatations per turn, but some extra killing power with the king settles it for me. However when i try out the high priest i might be swayed.

    My latest list runs a Tomb King, two Priests and an Icon Bearer. I've actually done surprisingly well and gone 3-0-1 with it so far. The Icon Bearer really isn't as bad as everyone says he is.

    How about Queen Nerfherder and 3 LP??

    I am using the Queen and then TP, LP, LP,
    heavy on the arrows attempting to shoot
    multiple times with several units of skellies.
    +2 to each skellie archer gets them two
    attacks per round with poisoned arrows.
    Not too Shabby...

    Rounding out the points are a Tomb Scorp,
    Tomb Swarm (4 bases), 1 Chariot Unit
    and a Unit of 20 Tomb Guard.

    With maxed up constructs what he does is ok, they become much more resistant in battle. But his survivalibity is the prob, and the fact that he can't do much alone. For example Vampire Thrall BSB is nice as warrior, can get imba armour (1+ save for 30pts) while IB's max save is 4+ and he can't cast any spells. We have too much better heroes than him, that's why so many says he's crap.
