Tomb King - Master of the Dark Arts, Tomb Blade
2 x 20 Skeleton Legionnaires
6 Necropolis Knights
Its a very simple strategy which is good for my brain. Walk behind the snake wall and watch that do mega damage whilst its receiving buffs from the Tomb King and the Necrotect. Almost a re-enactment of the 'Dual Snakes' lists I use to run way back in 8th edition Warhammer.
Playing against Isaac yesterday was fantastic. Firstly, I've never played against Stormcast Eternals so when I started reading his warscrolls it seemed like he had an answer for everything. Great armour saves, the ability to do consistent mortal wounds, and good combat abilities. We rolled up the new scenario 'Duality of Death' which pitched us to capture and hold two objectives with heroes gaining points with each turn that went by. This posed a slight problem for Isaac as he only had a single hero, however he had speed on his side. Although I had two heroes, they were both foot slogging all the way and immediately I was fighting an uphill battle. I had one relatively fast moving units, where as Isaac had 4. He was running:
Lord-Celestant On Dracoth (both had detonation things causing mortal wounds upon death and Obsidian Blade I think)
2 x 5 Liberators
2 x 2 Concussors
Isaac's forces on the opposite flank however eventually charged my Ushabti sticking them in place. They took 2 casualties before the Necropolis Knights could swoop in like the heroes they are and save the unit from certain destruction.
My Tomb King pinged a casualty from the Concussors unit tied up with the Skeleton block with Arcane Bolt, ensuring that the fight was a little more in my favour. Despite this, I still went on to lose 16 skeletons but was lucky enough to roll high on with the Icon Bearer and lap around the lone Concussor.
That's it folks, thanks for reading!
