I think the problem with the Lore of Nehekara is that it bumps TK units up to where everyone else starts out.

A lore full of strong augments (which it is) sounds good until one notices that TK need those augs to function at all, where everyone else can use augments to, well augment their units, rather than just make them the work at all.

The TK Lore is not very good because of the enormous drag factor that is the TK army.

Looking for a friendly wargaming club on the Isle of Wight? Drop me a line.

Yes and no. Gor blocks are good with lore of beasts and a couple of their magic items are considered "broken" for the purposes of ETC tournaments; and with cheap T5 4 wound chariots as core, cheap chaff, and pumbagors the army, despite monobuild effectively, they are right up there as a solid tier 3, maybe even 2 army (along with Chaos Warriors, High Elves, Empire).

If you are interested; my tiers are as;

1: Lizards, Daemons, Dark Elves
2; Dwarves, Ogres (drops to tier 2.5 vs bretons), Vampires, Skaven
2.5; Chaos Warriors, Empire, High Elves, Beastmen
3; Bretonnians (goes up to Tier 2.5 vs Ogres), Chaos Dwarfs
4; Wood Elves, Orcs and Goblins, Dogs of War (still technically legal)
6; Tomb Kings

Notice the armies at the bottom? 3 Have shit magic on the whole, while
Dogs of War and Wood Elves who have access to better magic are hampered by being 2-3 editions out of date with null rules (WE being at the "shit end" of 6th) and overcosted.
