I would be tempted to give the King's unit the Banner of the Undying Legion, and another unit the Warbanner. You could drop 1 unit of Light Horsemen (or 1 carrion if you decide to pick just one extra banner).

Personally I don't play with that many chariots, but I'll think you'll have problems getting around really. Chariot units tend to fan out to be really wide, and when you throw a few forests into the mix I think you might end up having the units get in the way of each other.

Four Carrion strike me as an odd number. Either run 3, which is all you need to be a threat to warmachines and exposed wizards and the like, or 5 which gets you US5 for all sorts of nifty tricks.

What's the Icon of Rulership doing on your King? If you're running him on his own he looks very frail, and if he's in a chariot unit I don't see why you need it.

unfortunately only one chariot unit can have a magic banner might try the undying legion on the kings unit in a couple of games.
