Tomb Kings Chariots and Tomb Guard

Posted in Miniatures with tags , , on January 27, 2012 by Sean

Here is a chariot regiment from my Tomb Kings army. So many skeleton horses! I went with variety in the charioteers, with spears, bow, or khopesh. I included command models to spruce up the front rank.

The Tomb Guard are heavily converted with parts from Warhammer, Blood Bowl’s Khemri team, and Wargods of Aegyptus. I wanted them to have a bit of their old personalities, with proper fierceness and skill (especially with the Tomb King accompanying them).


Tomb Kings Skeletons and Ushabti

I am returning to my Tomb Kings army, the Scions of Ptah.

I posted the archers and Lich Priestess before, but I have gone back to repaint the bases; in the case of the Priestess, she got a resin base to make her stand out more, a thing I’m doing for all the characters. Repainting the bases for the whole army will take some time, but it looks much better than simple sand (shown in the earlier post).

The Ushabti are my favorite unit in the whole army. The Anubis jackal-headed Ushabti was the one that sold me on the whole army back when it was released during 6th edition.

The details show the decoration, including the hieroglyphics on the ribbons.

Tomb Kings Skeletons and Liche Priests

Here is a selection from my Tomb Kings Warhammer army. With the new book coming out, I think the army will be viable to play now. Most of the army is finished already, but the new rules free up lots of points, and I’m looking forward to the new units. More to follow.

The Skeletons are heavily converted, with extras like mummy wrappings, loincloths, weapon swaps, and even the remnants of hair braids. These Skeletons come from the Warriors and Archers units.

The Liche Priests represent 3 different miniature lines. The first (from the left) is the basic Liche Priest from the Tomb Kings. The second, the Liche Priestess, is from Mordheim’s Amazon line, with added sword and scroll. The last, the Anubis-headed Priest, comes from War Gods of Aegyptus. Several more miniatures from that game show up in my Tomb Kings army in various units.
