Whilst recently posting about the new 8th edition 40k, it only feels natural to then do a blog post about Age of Sigmar. Although I haven't played the game for nearly 6 months, it still burns inside me, especially when I walk past a cabinet full of painted Tomb Kings just itching to close with the enemy.
During the Warhammer 8th edition games, I was always looking for some wacky and wonderful list which was against the norm. I ran the dual snake wall, Ushabti blocks, and even a 6-Sphinx list at one point. All of them were tons of fun.
One thing I am extremely happy about is just how much of a solid choice the Royal Warsphinx is nowadays in comparison to the old edition, and it's this new unit I wish to put under the magnifying glass today.
Long ago in the dusty halls of 8th edition I wrote a tactical article on this very subject. Even though my adventures in Age of Sigmar are still only very early days if there is one thing that it has already taught me it is that Necropolis Knights are still my favourite unit in the Tomb Kings arsenal and by the end of this article you'll have a deeper understanding as to why they should be included in every Tomb Kings list but also if you find yourself opposite them, have a very solid plan to take them out.
