Tomb Kings Update - March 26

I made a lot of progress this weekend on my Tomb Kings.  I finished all the bases and black on the edges of their bases and cranked out 50 Spearmen.  I'm also about halfway done with my Archers and think I can get them done by tomorrow evening.  Then all I will need to do are the two Screaming Skull Catapults, which are close to being done, and to finish the characters.

Here are my Skeleton Warriors with Spears!
I'm actually pretty happy with how they look.  One of the big reasons why I decided on Spearmen over normal Hand Weapon and Shield Warriors is because Warhammer, to me, is about big units that look cool and fewer big units look as cool as big blocks of Spearmen.
This army has featured two of my favorite color combinations.  Most of the Bronze is just Dwarf Bronze with a Gryponne Sepia wash and all of the bandages and cloth is Dheneb Stone with a Skull White highlight. I just really like the way those colors look and I've been using them everywhere lately.
Army lists were due yesterday for The Colonial.  This is the list I finally settled on:

Lords
Tomb King with Fencer's Blades, Glittering Scales,  Talisman of Endurance, Potion of Speed
Grand Hierophant Khatep

Heroes
Liche Priest, Level 2, Lore of Death, Ruby Ring of Ruin
Liche Priest, Level 2, Lore of Light, Dispel Scroll

Core
50 Skeleton Warriors with Spears and Full Command
20 Skeleton Archers with Standard Bearer
20 Skeleton Archers with Standard Bearer
10 Skeleton Archers
10 Skeleton Archers
5 Skeleton Horse Archers
5 Skeleton Horse Archers
4 Skeleton Chariots, Standard Bearer, Musician 
4 Skeleton Chariots, Standard Bearer, Musician, Banner of Eternal Flame

Rare
Screaming Skull Catapult, Skulls of the Foe
Screaming Skull Catapult, Skulls of the Foe
Casket of Souls 



After turning this list in I realized that 1) I spent a ton of points in Core, and 2) I took nothing from Special.  This is a pretty bad list but I think it can win one or two games at The Colonial.  Or, I could get really lucky and my Screaming Skull Catapults can just chew through armies.


I hope to have pictures up on Wednesday of my finished Archers and Horse Archers.
