Default What do i need for Tomb kings

Alrighty,it seems from first glance that they dont do well in some aspects, but waht are they trying to do? do i out last my opponent in an H2H or do i kill them, archers hit on high numbers due to BS 2, and it seems like im gonna need at least 2 units of regular warriors with shields, and 2 units of bowmen, along with chariots and other things. So what do i buy, and how do i use these units to their full effectiveness so i dont get crushed.

I've posted like 20 battle reports with pictures and audio commentary from my games as tomb kings, you might be interested in those. They are all on a thread that I posted on this forum, otherwise check my youtube page.

Take a good read up on this website for strategy: http://z4.invisionfree.com/Khemri/index.php?act=idx

Tomb Kings armies generally have to work as a cohesive whole. They are a hard army to play. Make sure your casters are all in range of the things you want to use your magic on. Deploy defensively if you have to. Take plenty of chariots if your army is led by a king, and use them as your hammer units. If you take a High Liche Priest, you might want to use a giant or ushabti to inflict the damage. Invest in at least one unit of archers as well, whether it is horse mounted or footsloggin' archers. Those are my basic tips, check the above stuff I mentioned for more detail.
