    It's an addendum to the 40K rule book. From what I've read, it contains 1. Vehicle Design Rules, 2. More stratagems, relics, and warlord traits, particularly for non-updated armies, 3. Apocalypse rules and other new ways to play the game, including more battle plans for Planetstrike and Stronghold Assault, and 4. Other new stuff.

    Well, while I'm getting prepared for my vacations, you should be prepared for this:



    Merry Holidays to all of you (and Nightbringer).

    Totalwar II is better than the first one... so it's only fair Lizardmen and Tomb Kings were included in the second release ;)

    Do you mean the campaign is better or did they alter other mechanics?


    Looks like CA gave the Tomb Kings are pretty full roster. It looks like just about everything is represented. What have we not seen? Bone Giant (but we have the cooler Heirotitan), Swarms. Anything else?

    I cannot really answer you here ad i don't play it ( :( ) but i am collecting impressions and reviews wich essentially boil down to:
    1) the software has been improved.
    2) the world is larger and more interesting

    awwwww poo. Looks like the Tomb Kings chatter has died out. We're back to AoS.


    It was nice while it lasted.

    Rumors are about undead pirates on ghost ships.
    A clearly new and original idea that no one had before and that will be copyrighted by GW.

    Merry Xmas!

    It's only because everyone was hoping that the Destruction Malign Portents hero would be a Goblin, and it is, a Night Goblin to be exact. I actually quite like him because he would be a good Night Goblin Great Shaman model for my Orcs and Goblins.

    In any case, I've been looking at an unboxing video of the Mantic Empire of Dust stuff and I'm really, really, REALLY tempted to start Tomb Kings now! Especially as the Empire of Dust starter army, basically the Mantic equivalent of a battalion box with a character as well is only £30 on some sites, where it would normally be £60. Now THAT's what I call good value models!

    It contains 20 Skeleton Warriors, 20 Archers, 10 Tomb Guard, 3 Ushabti, a Screaming Skull Catapult and a dual-purpose character model that can be built as either a Tomb King or a Liche High Priest (although the Tomb King looks badass I would probably have to make him as the priest to have a Heirophant, although I could get another of the model to make the Tomb King version afterwards), and for £30 that's quite a good starter for TK I think.

    At least it will be an original idea, as you say. Perhaps they will be the nemeses of the Kharadron Overlords in a Warhammer version of Pirates of the Carribean!

    Resistance is futile.
    You will start collecting Tomb Kings.

    Well, imo it's not original... but it will be FUN :D

    I am so happy that the Goblins get some love. They are one of the neglected factions in AoS up to now.

    Sounds like a great deal. The GW stuff would cost you magnitudes more! (especially now that they are discontinued)

    Another one joins our ranks!
