Right, the annual tourney is just around the corner, and this is what I'm taking.


Tomb King, Light Armour, Destroyer of Eternities, Collar of Shapesh. 268 pts.
Liche Priest, Cloak of the Dunes, Hieratic Jar. 160 pts.
Liche Priest, 2 Dispel Scrolls. 165 pts.
Liche Priest, 1 Dispel Scroll. 140 pts.

10 Skeleton Warriors, Bows. 80 pts.
10 Skeleton Warriors, Bows. 80 pts.
20 Skeleton Warriors, Light Armour, Shields, Full Command. 205 pts.
4 Chariots. 160 pts.

19 Tomb Guard, Full Command, Warbanner. 276 pts.
4 Ushabti. 260 pts.
Tomb Scorpion. 85 pts.
5 Carrion. 120 pts.


King goes with the Tomb Guard, and forms the main element of the army. The Skeleton block is there to protect the Tomb Guard from flanking. Normally, I play with two Scrolls, Standard on the Chariots, and a Steed for one of the Priests, however we normally don't play with VP's for capturing standards (as a house rule).

I'm not a fan of carrion, and I think it would be good to drop a unit of archers to make sure your blocks are at least 20 after some loses, but otherwise it looks tough.

I like the list. Plenty of variety and covers most bases well.

My one concern would be your inability to deal with nasty stuff at range. I think that a catapult would help a lot. I would achieve this through cutting a scroll (25) a carrion (24) and a chariot (40), which will put you close - the light armour on the Tomb King will seal the deal if necessary.
