With the mass update of the Data Cards to 1.2, we've decided to prune out old tactics discussions as they may be confusing the newer players.

Double check these, but I'm pretty sure this is all the changes to the Nefsokar:


Mi'sher:
Gain 2 points from 63 to 65
+1 DV to 1st track
+1 DV to 2nd track

Frog Swarm:
Added as a Soldier (adept) 25 point model
Same stats as in the Plague of Frogs spell

The Sphinx:
Changed from Monster to Solitaire

Walking Avatar:
Changed from Solitaire to Monster

Sokar's Avatar:
Drop 6 poins from 216 to 210
Changed from Solitaire to Monster

Frog Swarm, where are those located??

Also I though Tariq changed slightly.

Frog swarm was not added as a Soldier model.
Tariq has not changed since the faction book, but he is 5 points more than in the core rulebook.

Well, Netikerti is gonna need some spells. IMHO, the best option is Lightning Bolt for 50 points. I would say your best 2 options are:
Add Lesser Magic upgrade (15 points) and one Lighting Bolt (50 points) to Netikerti.
OR
Drop 2 Awakened from Troop one and add two Lighting Bolts (100 points) to Netikerti and Divine Favor to Khufu.

If you can purchase a different leader instead of Khufu (I'd recommend the Chosen of Sokar), that will open up a TON of points, and you could fill Netikerti with spells. ::):

Lightning Bolt is a nice spell. I recommend it plus a couple Bolts and/or Ice Shards. Magic upgrade is nice for Netikerti. I sometimes put Lesser or Improved Armor on Tariq. You can also add a Bandage or Bless to Tariq.

If you drop Khufu and pickup a Chosen, you can't have the elite (Netikerti) but you could move her to Tariq's troop. Khadath is an option, but it sounds like lonelymonk needs to start with the boxset.

You might want to consider some bless/bandage spells for Tariq especially since he is with the archers. Give Neti some lower level spells to spread the wealth and that way your force isn't relying on a single model with lots of points that may get tagged when you aren't looking.
Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

IMO Hold is too expensive a spell to have on Khufu because his CP is somewhat low. I would put a less expensive spells like bless or bandage on him. Here is a recommended list based with your restrictions. I am doing points from memory because I don't have my book with me. Netikerti can cast Ice Shards and be deadly from range. Fear can be cast before engaing in melee or while melee is in process. And don't worry about the Awakened because they're immune to it because of SA Undead -> Fearless.

Khufu 257
- Bandage 10
- Divine Favor 10
Netikerti 53
- Ice Shard x2 20
- Fear x2 20
Awakend x9 189

Tariq 56
- Bless x2 10
Khamsin Rangers x3 123

Total 748

Since I already have some Nefsokar minis from an Ebay lot, I am thinking of doing an army... Without the benefit of a book, I made a force based on the Data Cards. Any criticism would be appreciated.

Army List:

Troop 1 361
Ammat + GMA 145
9 Tomb Guard 216

Troop 2 335
Khadath + DF 99
Reborn 71
5 Dervishes 165

Troop 3 154
Chosen 31
3 Khamsin Rangers 123

Troop 4 149
Walking Avatar 149

4 activations, 22 models, 999 pts

I say put Khadaths troop in the vangaurd and that your greatest strength with Ammats troop would be later in the fight from survivability, or getting there at least. Your archers would probably work best against other archers, mages, or enemy breakers. The only problem I see is a lack of magical support but I honestly don't know how much that is going to hurt you.
