Thousands of years before the coming of Sigmar a power was flourishing in the south. The people of Nehekhara, a mighty civilization led by great kings and rulers. Raised from their tombs by an evil priest, the Kings of Nehekhara, the Tomb Kings and their masses of skeleton warriors seek to destroy the evil that has brought them to undeath and rid the world of their greatest enemies, the Vampires of Lahmia.
Followers of Khonsu, the moon god, the Tomb King Khalfani and his undead legions roam the arid deserts, gathering power to destroy the vampires and restore their former empire.

____________________​

With a new year comes a new army, and that new army is Tomb Kings. A huge shopping spree in an Independent Stockist landed me with this;

-Warhammer Rulebook
-Warhammer Armies: Tomb Kings
-1 Tomb King with Great Weapon
-1 Liche Priest, Foot and Mounted
-Tomb Kings Battalion
-3 boxes of Skeleton Warriors
-2 Boxes of Chariots
-1 Tomb Guard Command and 3 boxes of Tomb Guard
-1 Screaming Skull Catapult
-3 blisters of Carrion
-1 Tomb Scorpion
-Warhammer Dice
-Warhammer counters set
-1 Movement tray
-Fortified Manor House
-Pin Vice
-Drill bits for the Pin Vice
-Cool water pot thingy
-Some snacks
-Some cards for a bit poker between builds (They're magic and let me cheat:grin:)

So all together that's;

80 Skeleton Warriors
9 Chariots
8 Horsemen
1 Tomb King
2 Liche Priests (foot + mounted)
1 Screaming Skull Catapult
1 Tomb Scorpion
3 Carrion
20 Tomb Guard
= 125 models and a wounded wallet
____________________​
So, after days of assembling this is what I have:




SSC, pinned and glued (bugger to make).





A unit of spear warriors with the champion.




A Scorpion with a little extra support







My Heirophant, Khonshotep on his steed. He'll usually be high priest and run around with my other cav. I've almost finished the horse, more pics coming soon.

More background and pictures and even an army list to come. Possibly VC's as well...
Any questions just ask.

Right update 1:

I've finished the horse for my Liche Priest, Khonshotep. Here it is:







I sprayed the model white then gave a heavy wash in all the right places. A direct appliance of devlan mud to the cracks only shaded it more. I then painted bleach bone, leaving the recesses dark. I then finely hilighted with skull white. The base is a covering of sand with watered down PVA brushed over, then a bestial brown base coat. I then heavily drybrushed snakebite leather, then drybrushed bubonic brown, then lightly drybrushed bleached bone. I stuck on some Galeforce9 straw static grass and a few stones painted to look deserty.

Keep watching out for more!

Looking to be a good start and blimey that's a huge shopping spree over Xmas :D but still will be an impressive sight when it's all done. What colour scheme are you going for with the army? Other than bone ;)
darkish green and gold. It works quite well with the bone. I'll put up a pic of a painted archer soon.

As a fellow TK player I must say you are brave to start them now. Rumours are that the TK's new book comes out this spring so everything you do now might change. That said, the bone on the steed looks very nice indeed and I can only imagine the rest will as well. I also like the poses of the spearmen as they don't look as static as most do.


As for the list, please post that in the Warhammer Armylists section, not in the hobby log.

I have.
Do you want me to remove it?
I just thought it might be helpful to have everything in one place, not only for me but for my readers.
Anyway, thanks for the comment. I don't really care about a new army book coming out, I can just adjust.

I'm working on my Liche Priest to go on the horse now, as well as some chariots.
Stay tuned.

Ok, an update on the Liche Priest:





The pics take away so much from the picture, it looks much better in real life, even up close.
I decided to go for a blue instead of the pale purple GW like to use for their Liche Priests, I think it looks better.
Now I've gotta do the rest of the model.

Another update:






It is a test warrior with a shield and spear. I have changed my theme from green and gold to green and bronze, but characters and emblems etc. will be green and gold.
What d'ya think?

I've been quite busy:

But of course I didn't stop at one:

I didn't stop at 5 either:

Yes, a whole 60 Skeletal Archers. I must admit I had a bit of help from a family member but 60 is still a lot.

The camera I ordered arrived today so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity for me to take some pics. Also I got a Kaiser Rushforth case, I love it. If you're looking for a good case, although they are thick cardboard, they are amazing.

Much, Much more to come.

Edit: Pics up!

Thanks!

Nice to see that someone other than me is looking at this plog.

On other notes, 3 chariots finished (based, no drivers yet), only 6 more to go. I bought a Winged Vamp lord, I'll have some pics up soon.
