Ill make this short, every1 knows VC dont have any shooting whatsoever, my question is why? Why did GW not give us shooting when every other army in the game has it? I am asking all VC players to say why, or at least why you suspect, they did not give VC any range.

Well first we do have shooting (Banshee) , and I think we didn't get any long range shooting because then we could just sit skeleton blocks in front (unbreakible) and slowly shoot our opponent into the ground.

and then look at hordes of chaos, with the exception of the hellfire cannon and maybe one type of daemon. they have no ranged weapons at all, on a different note both the hellfire cannon and the one type of raanged daemon cost a bit of money and are not always fielded in the highest of numbers.

Why? I haven't read in the designer's notes, but my suspicion is fear. Every single model in our army causes fear. Almost every model in our army is unbreakable as well as immune to psychology. The more I play (about half a year now) the more I see how valuable that is. Never taking a panic test. Never running from combat. Enemies who can't charge you. Enemies who automatically break from combat.
And don't forget Sylvanian armies. They have shooting, and it's a legal list. Even without shooting, VCs are always a force to be reckoned with. In the hands of the right general, they're nigh unstoppable. (I just wish I had those guy's hands!)
Because we do not need it. Even without shooting we're one of the better armies out there.
I think that shooting is a hallmark of the Tomb Kings list. VC players need to rely on invoked units and should formulate their battle plans around them instead of worrying about lack of shooting firepower.
The iron crowned is getting closer,
Swings his hammer down on him,
Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
Down the Noldor's proudest king.
Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.
