Hi Guys,

I've got a youtube page with nearly 500 videos on it that are mostly about computer games, but i've done a few battlereports for tabletop too. These were 40k in the past, but since I have got back into Fantasy after 10 years, as of a few months ago, i'm going to be doing reports on the exploits of my new Tomb Kings Army. What follows are some introductory videos. Also, take a look at this pic just as a sample:



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnIYSlreNb4 - An introductory report on starting out as Tomb Kings, during an initial stage of painting. This is not a battlereport.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yCywkuc7HA - Not a complete battle report, but I do show pics of two separate games and tell stories about them. Especially the second game, which gets closer into batrep territory.

1- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfJO10UElUY
2- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWGV2ZNfYKs - A two part series report on a 2k game, Tomb Kings vs Dark Elves. Please bear in mind that both of us were using Army lists that had been heavily restricted in preparation for a tournament. Any comments on what we should/shouldn't have taken will most likely be irrelevant due to us being rather forced and limited in our options.

More reports coming soon - I will probably post them on this thread, so if you like them check back or subscribe to my youtube page. There will especially be a lot of pics and reports after next weekend when I play in the New Zealand 'Fluffycon/Battlecry' Tournament.

Hey, do post when you put some more up. I enjoyed the verbal report style. Let us know how the tournament goes. The fluffy con style seems rather draconian. Hope it's enjoyable.

You semed a bit skittish or nervous during the reports. Is this your first time donig this type of stuff, or is it justbecause you have to talk fast because of youtube's time limit?

1000th post = 7/20/11

Look at our profits, now look at our sales, now look back at our profits. Sadly, sales numbers aren't in line with our profits, but it could be, now that we've introduced FINECAST(tm), slashed staff and raised prices. Look at my hand, its our annual report... look again, the report is now DIAMONDS. Anything is possible when you invest with GW. (I'm issuing a dividend.)

Chariots are indeed decent, but like everything in the TK list, you have to use it against the right target, and in concert with everything else! Otherwise, epic fail.

Here's the latest report, 2250 points, TK vs Warriors of Chaos! This is the DEBUT of the Casket of Souls. SOULS!

Today was a double batrep vs some High Elves. First game was a SHOCKER upset, with one player conceding defeat in the first turn. Follow the links to see how it happened. The report simply continues with game 2 - we just kept the terrain the same, swaped table sides, and deployed all over again.

Hey Vaul, I love your battle reports but here's a quick question;

You seem to have your casket of souls on a display type thingy, was this an aesthetic modeling choice or do people accept you bringing your own hill to the battle so that it's LoS can never be blocked?
(Like in the picture shown above, the units behind the very first row of Wood Elves wouldn't be affected by the casket if it was on flat ground)

Purely cosmetic, any warhammer player would be an idiot if they thought they could get away with putting their casket on its own little 'hill'.

Tomb Kings vs Skaven!

This was my first ever encounter with Skaven, period. I'm glad I did, they are a really good time. Made some serious mistakes, ones I won't make next time now that I have seen how skaven work in practice. This was a good game.

Nice to see the army progressing. The red shields are a nice tone to set against the bone color on the skeleton warriors. Thanks for the linkage, Vaul.

In days past, the land of Khemri was once ruled by many proud and might Kings. Only Settra, the greatest King of Khemri, was able to unite them. But old rivalries die hard - even after the catastrophic events of the sorceror Nagash, the old kings of Khemri arise to do war: against each other.

Double update today. Had some High Elves over at my place, bringing in my debut yellow desert gaming table. Photos aren't quite as clear under artificial light, but you can see what is going on. Elf out deploys and out-manouvers me, but someone forgot to tell him that superior generalship has nothing on superior dice rolling.

Below: Dragon princes have a lot of things going for them: good stats, good armour, good item options... but one thing that they don't have is; THEIR SOULS!



Next game features the Bretonnians. My first time against Brets, actually turned out to be a real good'un. I actually trialled a MUCH softer list for this one, only one liche, no casket, took another chariot prince instead. Nothing cheesy about that!

Rematch against the nice guy that gave me a lift home from NATCON, I beat him in the first round. Today's game was at his place and the lighting was very gloomy. Made for some very atmospheric photography! Tomb Kings vs Dark Elves.

@ Vaul , whats your opinion on Tomb charriots ,

str 5 ( D3 ) impact hits?

Only strength four actually. But the fact that they are fast cavalry, and can move in the magic phase makes all the difference. Being able to charge backwards, around corners, into flanks etc is what it is all about. And with the banner of the sacred eye you can find your skeletal steeds hitting on 3+ in some cases, and so on. Also, they have bows... so every time you pop a shade or black guard that's points in the bag. Always hitting on 5's really takes the cake when shooting at skirmishers at long range who are in forests.
