Hey warseers,

I've got a Mighty Empires campaign game tonight, and I managed to snag the elites event (giving me access to unlimited special and rare choices.)

Unfortunately my opponent and I can't play any time over the next couple weeks except tonight, and all my books/army builder are at home.
After work I have about 20 minutes to get from work, to my house (so I can get my models), to the LGS.

Can you guys help me slap together a 1700ish (can go as high as 1740) list for this game?
I've only got 3 chariots (plus one with a prince) built, but beyond that I have over 4000 points of Tomb Kings and can do any list, I'm just not going to have time to put a good one together.
I'm playing against a mostly gunline dwarf army, that I know has at least one small unit of longbeards.

Help me warseer-kenobi, you're my only hope.

So what? You have 4000 points of TK but it's all in the box? I'd say you're screwed...

Well if you are really going to try this use as many high point easy models as you can. No more chariots. Lots of bone giants. Make a unit of swarms to take care of a fast core.

Another vote for this being impossible.

No way you can put together any sort of army in 20 minutes.

You guys misunderstood me.
I have 4000 points built, but as far as chariots go only three of them are finished. Everything else was built and 1500 points are painted.
I ended up cobbling a list together and doing pretty well.

Slaw in some character's as expensive as possible.
Add a couple of bone giants.
Make sure your core hits the required number then drop in a bunch of ushabti if your still short.

eg.
Tomb king(general) On foot 100pts of items(any)
Sheild,light armour,great weapon
282pts

2 x liche priests with 50pts of items each
330pts

3 tomb swarm bases
135pts

25 skeleton warriors
light armour,spears and sheilds,full command
275pts

25 skeleton warriors
light armour,spears and sheilds,full command
275pts

2 x bone giants
440pts

Thats 1737points altogether.
That okay?

Unwantedbeing's list is OK
If <2000 pts , you'll have to substitute one Bone Giant (1 Rare only) for Scorpion plus Tomb guard or Ushabti etc.
If=2000pts, then another Liche priest is preferable.

TKings are weaker at games of <2000pts.

I'd have taken scorpions, lots of scorpions, you deploy 2 largeish units of archers to hide your priests and prince in, rest of the army tunnels up on turn 2+ and enjoys a buffet...

My thoughts exactly... If it's a gunline, then 10 scorpions appearing in the midst of his lines will sure ruin his day!

Scorpions and carrion are good against gunlines. You might be able to pull off a first turn charge on a warmachine with your carrion, though with less magic (below 2000 points) it's a bit tricky to pull this off.

Would you? Against a dwarf gunline? Panic on 8 or 9 isn't really scary, even when you're lobbing 10 skulls a turn. I'd say the mass of scorpions is the scarier prospect for a gunline.

Well, the game against the dwarves, yes, Scorpion mass assault is a lot nastier, especially in 1500 points, but just generally, 5 SSC's are nasty, real, real nasty, don't they also ignore armoursaves?

SSCs make a complete mess of ironbreakers 3+AS. firing twice a turn even one can cleave through whole units.

SSCs ignore armor saves and cause panic checks...5 would cause oh-my-God-I-think-I-just-pissed-myself checks

5 SSC against goblins or skaven? :D
