Tomb Kings Come to Total War Warhammer 2

EVeryone’s favorite chariot-riding skellingtons are coming to Total War Warhammer 2.

Total War Warhammer 2, which is still named that, despite Total Warhammer 2 being a name that is much easier to type, is trucking along quite well. Having recently seen th release of the grand unified field theory, or at least, some DLC for both Total War Warhammer War Hammer 1 and 2 that allows you to smash the worlds together into one massive map that you can play on–is now seeing another expansion.

The Tomb Kings are coming, which you can get a glimpse of as a bunch of people who have clearly never seen the opening to Aladdin explore a tomb, see some treasure and then just start touching everything.

See, if they’d watched even just the first like twenty minutes of Aladdin, they’d know what was in store for them. Touch nothing but the lamp and you’ll be fine–but the second you touch anything else?

But do they learn?

It’s like a bunch of Dark Elves bumming around the kingdom of Nehekara have never taken the time to sit down and watch a Disney animated classic–spoiler alert they all end up dead. So the next time you’re wondering about whether or not you’re spending your time wisely, just remember that you didn’t end up getting lasered to death in an Egypt-analogue by a statue that shoots lasers from its eyes.

Well, that’s it for those Dark Elves, I suppose. But, the Tomb King are due to arrive soon. There’s a whole ton of new units coming, and if you enjoy Warhammer Fantasy and/or the old world, this one is definitely for you. You can of course check out more about Total War Warhammer 2 here.

Soon you’ll be able to raise an entire dynasty in the old world, and claim the new one for the undead.

  • …did you really just post an Aladdin video in a post about Egyptian dudes? I mean, the Cave of Wonders isn’t even a “tomb” to begin with.

    • ZeeLobby

      Well, to us white ‘Mericans they all are the same… derpa derp derp

    • Valegorn

      Dude, its an article about a make believe army which references a make believe fairy tale on a site that focuses on make believe fiction.

      If we really wanted find something offense about Warhammer how can we look past the highly offensive savage middle easterners (Orcs) or the cold blooded South Americans (Lizardmen)? What about the blood drinking eastern Europeans or the rebellious perverted North Americans who broke away from their more noble kin? How about the highly offensive representation of Scotts as short drunk bearded men who for some reason migrated to the mountains of Asia. The list goes on.

      Or you can take the article for what it is, Tomb Kings Hype!!!! Which personally I can’t wait for!

      • I don’t find it offensive, I find it to be just… dumb and a missed opportunity. There’s plenty of silly actual egyptian nonsense. Heck, DuckTales had a scene with a mummy in its intro, I believe.

        My comment had nothing to do with taking offense at supposed racial nonsense, but that the choice of video was rather uncreative and doesn’t hit the theme properly. Especially considering Araby exists in WHFB and had Djinns and what not in the old days.

        • Valegorn

          Ok, sorry to jump the gun.

  • YetAnotherFacelessMan

    Which one of you was the guy who told me that it was “confirmed” that Tomb Kings would be in Total War: Warhammer 3, but never provided the source when I asked for it?

    • stinkoman

      Get em!

  • dave long island

    The Giant at the end was created at the behest of Settra the imperishable himself, so called as he was half pickled on Khemrian wine for most of this adult life. He was said to have, in a drunken stupor, commanded his priests to create “giants with frickin’ lasers comin’ outta their eyes”. And so they came to be. Or so the hieroglyphs give tell, found upon the walls of long buried Khemrian tombs…. LOL

  • ZeeLobby

    Can’t believe it’s finally CA that makes a Hierotitan. After all that time waiting…

    Man I miss the old world :/

    • Brian Brodeur

      I do like how CA made the hierotitan look really close to all the awesome kitbashed ones that were being used in 8th. Using mostly parts from the Necrosphinx set. Love it.

      • ZeeLobby

        Haha, yeah. I had planned on kitbashing one just like it for so long. Then Tomb Kings got kind of shafted rule wise, then the world blew up, then the model line disappeared. Le sigh…

  • John John Slade

    Let me tell you guys:


  • Sleeplessknight

    Wow, that video really makes me want to buy some models of what was shown. Maybe even start a whole army of guys like that. I wonder where I can get some?

  • Ve Ly Pè

    What exactly is the huge guy walking around at the end?

    • Albino_42

      It’s a Hierotitan. There were rules for them in 8th ed but never a model sadly.

      • Albino_42

        They’re basically the dreadnoughts of the old world – massive walking statues with mummified priests stuffed inside to ‘pilot’ them.

  • EnTyme

    Still bummed about Norsca getting delayed until May, but still, TOMB KINGS!!!!

    • Dooms Day

      It is a shame, but they are remaking the entire DLC

  • Borja Saiz Bustamante

    Zerg rush on wheels + gigant size dalek “Exterminate”? God, f*** yeah!

  • Rainthezangoose

    Now if they would just arrive in AoS 😢

    • Marco

      May AoS rot! Long live Warhammer Fantasy!

      • EnTyme
      • Malisteen

        Even for those who don’t like AoS, a restored or revised Tomb Kings line would be a gods-send for Oldhammer & 9e players, as the Mantic line is lacking a number of key units (chariots, cavalry, scorpions, bone giants, sphynxes, etc), and several of those they do have are of questionable quality

  • Marco

    Long live Warhammer Fantasy and the Old World!

  • disqus_HUXMdKxsPG

    Hopefully this happens in aos. In a warhammer quest maybe?

  • Bri B

    More proof that ditching the Old World was a dumb idea.
