    Murnaz reacted to AngryMojo in High Elf Sky Cutter has a different type of damage?   
    I've been running it as untyped damage, thus resistance and immunity doesn't apply.  My roommate e-mailed FFG about this, they confirmed it.

    Murnaz got a reaction from ClanNatioy in Tomb Kings!   
    I think you have a lot of great ideas here! I was wondering the other day if the lack of dice in the melee phase would kind of limit unit diversity, but your Tomb Guard rule seems like a cool way to add some flavor to it.  I also like your "Plentiful" rule, and I imagine we will be some variation of it as the game is expanded.
     
    I like your "Protected" rule but I think I'd make it short range. Medium range actually covers a lot of battlefield and it would be hard to picture a unit at full medium range sprinting over to take an arrow for the Priest. Again, I think we'll be seeing something like this as the game game grows.
     
    My personal favorite is your "Underneath" rule, and I especially like the chance that it can kill the targeted unit outright. The image of a giant scorpion bursting from the earth to pull some hapless unit to their doom is just too cool
     
    I hope FFG takes note of your rules and considers making a Tomb Kings army in the future. But, as I'm sure you already know, Tomb Kings are pretty low on the totem pole in terms of popularity. You have just as much chance as getting your Tomb Kings as I of getting my Beastmen I'm afraid.

    I was a Tomb King player back when I used to play Warhammer and I would really like to see them in this game. I think they would be a very unique faction for this game. Here are some ideas I had.
     
    Sorry if I misspell stuff or forget the exact names for things. It has been awhile since I played and I know longer have my old army book.
     
    Also any point value I stick on things is just a guess because I've never tested any of it.
     
    Key words:
    Undead: disks pinned by this disk suffer -1 to their counter strength (this penalty is not cumulative). This disk is not living.
     
    Protected: This disk can not be the target of a ranged attack if it is within medium range of a friendly infantry disk.
     
    Arrows of the Asp: Scatter counts as a hit. Ignore cover
     
    Plentiful: count this disk as a small disk for purposes of army building
     
    Construct: This disk is not living
     
    Underneath: When you reinforce this disk you may place it any where on the board. If you place it pinning a disk roll a black dice if X then remove this disc as a casualty.

    Slow
    Either raise the toughness of target undead disk by 2 until the end of turn (the effects of this spell last until damage tokens have been removed) or bring a skeleton warriors disk into play with in long of a caster. This disk is removed from play during the end phase.

    Bold
    in addition to activating the two units from this card you may activate a Tomb Priest. Do not put an activation token on the Tomb Priest.
     
     
    Idea behind The Tomb Kings
    Pretty much they're a team that is weak while they're pinned and strong when they're pinning. They also rely heavily on their Tomb Priests. Because they're so slow they really need their priests to get them moving and be able to pin enemy disks. Their disks are also most likely going to be cheaper in points so you should be able to have more disks then your opponent which will allow you to sacrifice some weak cheap disk in order to get your good disks into a position where they will be able to get big damage. They have some pretty good ranged options too and their chariots are pretty versatile except for being junk when they get pinned. They have some whackier random chance stuff too with the Tomb Scorpion and Bone Giant.
     
    Let me know what you think about my ideas for the TK.
