    Just a couple quick questions in regards to traditional Tomb Kings characters:

    1.) Would this specific Tomb King build be viable in ...
    a.) ... a pure melee-centric TK list ?
    b.) ... a scream-oriented UL list ?

    Tomb King, Light Armour, Great Weapon, Dragonhelm, Golden Death Mask, Talisman of Endurance


    2.) What are peoples feelings about the old TK version of Arkhan the Black (I.E. the not the Mortarch) ?
    Yes, he's got no ward save at all going and his only 'defense' is T5.
    That aside, it feels somehow tempting to run a Loremaster (Death) instead of a Liche (Nehekara) as
    the required Hierophant in a pure TK list.

    1) I think it's a viable build although many have said take a LHP with the mask and put him in the second rank for protection. Either army archetype should be fine with it although I feel you might want some archers to clear away a few units.

    2)He is the man. Take him. Throw in a casket and heirotitan and cackle maniacally. Plop him in some archers, run a snake wall and put the bowmen peeking out a little to the side of the snakes so you can hurl purple sun with a level 5. The extra level goes a long way to casting and dispelling.
