PostSubject: Ushtabi, tomb swarms   Sun May 22, 2011 4:21 pm

I frequent the westminister hobby town and was looking to pickup some tomb swarms and ushtabi with the 25% off sale, does fort collins have any that they could send down?

Thanks!

DB would know for sure, but while I was there Saturday I didn't see any of either. And I did look.

Just out of curiosity, why do you want to run swarms?

Hi Cybrax!

Unfortunately, we have neither of those in stock.

While stalkers are much better for points then the tomb swarms the minimum footprint for tombswarms is 80 points where as with stalkers i at least have to go with three at 165 points. The ushtabi I have been looking at for the last couple of days and im not sure why you would take these over necro knights. I'm getting the feeling i may need to pick up both of these units and put them on auto include.

I am a huge fan of the Ushabti, even with the need for great weapons to get their str 6 back.
The swarms on the other hand... In the last book, I took them in almost every army. They aren't strong, and don't put out many wounds, but they could hold a unit up, when they popped up and charged. Now they no longer give you those few extra core points, and can't charge the turn they arrive. I get the feeling they will just be swept away or ignored. Yes, they are cheaper than the Stalkers, but the Stalkers come with the gaze. And you don't HAVE to have any entombed models.
Just my thoughts.

I used to use 2 tomb scorpions with the old rules, but I'm hesitant to take them now. They lost a wound and are very vulnerable sitting above ground for a turn. I just don't see why to take them over the stalkers either. Are you fielding Ushtabi right now? What size unit are you using? What advantage do they have over Necro Knights other than 15 points?

Should move this thread over to the tomb kings section as it is no longer a order thread but a game thread
= P



EDIT: forgot i could do that lol.
