-General, Armour of the Ages, Golden Ankhra, Chariot, Great Weapon
Liche Priest: 165pts

3 x Chariots:
3 x Chariots:
3 x Chariots
(king goes with one of them)

18 x Ushabti (one massive unit 6x3)
(could make 2 x 9 units, but one massive unit is unbeatable in closecombat and there isn't space in the field)

18 Ushabti?? I'd love to face that! Just punch in some Minotaurs and three or four chariots and watch them crumble. Would be fun to destroy a unit like that!

lol ouch 18 ushabti wud mash up ur minos and chariots, apart from u having to kill 9 of them in one combat to make them crumble.

And if you dont do that then your stuffed.

Liche priest just raise some more hehe.

Question: What about artillerary, especially cannons, wouldnt they tear it apart? :confused:

11-08-2005, 15:32
tactique of this army is following:
block of ushabtis is the spine of this army, it marches towards the enemy
at full speed, chariots go with them at their side and king is nearest model to the
block of ushabtis (can use the moving spell on those and own unit)
liche flying at the back or side giving speed to other units
or healing other units..
at closecombat 6 wide ushabti will hit atleast 1 unit but maybe 2 also, and with chariots coming from the flanks they will do massive damage.
and the size of the ushabti block is so big because
they just cannot run away and you'll have to kill them!
with 3 with str 6 they are pretty strong on killing
basicly Anything, and with 3 wounds you'll have to have
something big on killing them!
one other thing, ushabti block has US of 54
and that is a high number to beat!

11-08-2005, 15:34
3attacks with str6 it should read!
and cannons dont frighten this army too much, 2 cannons kill about
1 or 2 ushabtis per turn or one chariot... and liche can summon
those back, and if he cannot, there is plenty more

eh they arent unbeatable in cc you could have a iffy roll and end up losing alot of wounds or a character with a multiple wound wpn would rock that unit.

11-08-2005, 16:47
yeh nothing is unbeatable, after all...
but point is that it's really strong unit.
and everyone forgets the chariots that will help ushabtis..
maybe it wouldn't survive, maybe it would.
dices are dices...

>>>>>This is definatly the most unique Tomb King list I have seen in a long while.

However, As much fun as it might be to run 1 big unit, I think 2 units of 9 would be mor effective in the long run; even with 9 of them in a unit they have a Unit Strength of 27; which is above average. Secondly; at T4 they fall somewhat quickly to enemy fire; if you end up facing a missile heavy enemy force things could hurt; the Liche simpley wont be able to raise wounds back quickly enough.

Quick question; how much of list do you have assembled? Secondly, have you played with it before?

Make sure to tell us how it went and against what army you faced, I am curious to know how this army would fare. Happy Gaming ;)

i dont have 18 ushabtis yet, but i'm going to buy them, and i have been thinking
of making two units of 9 ushabtis, even if it would take space from the field.
this will be part of my massive 6000pts TK army, and I have another TK
army that is "normal" so to speak, this is just army for times when my normal
tk army gets boring, though im going to use about 10 ushabtis in my normal army as well. There is couple of blisters to buy, but not so many (8)

11-08-2005, 17:13
and i haven't been playing any games with this army, because i didn't have
ushabtis last time when i played..

11-08-2005, 20:37
i also dont think you will get many spells off with a total value of 4 castin dice a trn (2d6 bound for liche, 2 1d6 bound for tk.)

11-08-2005, 20:42
yeah this list needs fixing, at 3000+ this list rocks, and more the points
more fun i can get with ushabtis and chariots, more units etc ;)

i only see 4 scrolls not 5 might want to fix the type-o :)

overal looks alot or solid except i dont see why you made the skel unit near 40 models strong thats a huge unit heh

11-08-2005, 21:35
brooch of great desert = dispel scroll (enchanted item) ;)

i allways use huge units of skeletons, they are really tough.
in 1000pts that 38 x skeleton unit rocks, and in 2000pts
it's really good in a defensive point, it can hold one charge easily!

11-08-2005, 23:49
oh my bad i didnt see it there i forgot the item existed :x

im newer to tks as i just started collecting them

12-08-2005, 08:36
no problem ;) i added that item to this army list because the lack of liches.
