Araby Tomb Kings / High Elf Army - COMPLETE - Pic Heavy

Postby Larro » Sat Jul 31, 2010 3:07 pm

I just got around to taking pics of this army, which has for the most part, been finished since the Winter time - I just haven't been able to use it/play Warhammer much at all, so they've been buried inside Army Transports. Anyways, it's an Araby-themed Tomb King army, which also will double as Tomb Kings, built primarily for 7th Edition but is very much 8th Edition playable if I add an extra 5 models here and there to the Ranked Bowmen and such. Here you go, enjoy:

1st unit of 22 Archers:

2nd unit of 23 Archers + 2 Unit Fillers:

Image
Image
Image


10-man "bunker" unit of Skeletons / doubles as filler for the Archers to make them into Seaguard:
Image
Image
Image


4 Tiranoc / Tomb King Chariots:
Image
Image


20 Tomb Guard / HE Swordsmasters w/ Command + Unit Filler (Slave Girl) - converted Marauders/High Elf Archers:
Image
Image
Image
Image


23 Tomb Guard / HE Phoenix Guard w/ Command + 2 Unit Fillers (Dechayla and 2 Snakes) - OOP 80s Snakemen models:

Image
Image
Image
Image


4 Ushabti / Great Eagles (I recently painted up 2 additional to make it a 6-strong unit, but they're not pictured):
Image
Image
Image


2 Tomb Scorpions:
Image
Image
Image
Image


Bone Giant:
Image
Image


Screaming Skull Catapult:
Image
Image
Image
Image


Liche w/ Cloak / Archmage
Image
Image
Image


2 Liche Priests / Mages
Image
Image
Image


Tomb King / Prince / HE Prince / Archmage / Whoever!
Image
Image


I do have a few other things not pictured, including a couple of Bolt Throwers (nothing special, just used Dark Elf Bolt Thrower models with similar Araby crew), but they're basing isn't finished yet, and besides, RBTs are pretty shitty in 8th, so whatever.

LOVE the conversions! Awsome stuff! As tomb kings, I think they're fantastic. As high elves... ugh... I wouldn't field them as such in a tourney. IMO, they just don't fit due to the inherently evil look of the army (snakemen, black claoks, slave girls, covered faces, bone chariots. And the ushabti which are AWESOME don't work for me as eagles (carrying two swords and looking way more choppy than eagles ever would). It's not a problem with being able to tell what models represent. That's easy. It's just the overall evil/good thing. But again, the army is great. Very original and way awesome with the conversions. Fight Andy's Dark Elves and take pics. :)

I feel ya. My primary build with the army was as Tomb Kings, it was just that TKs were nerfed during 7th (the army took a while to assemble and paint) towards the end, and then I said eh what the hell, HEs are fun, and there was overlap. I see what you're saying, and I'm glad you like the army itself. What it plays as is largely irrelevant to me to be honest, I just wanted to a cool project. Hopefully once 8th shakes out, TKs come back to viability and all will be well.
