i am new to fantasy, i have played 3 games with tomb kings so far, i am trying to make some good army lists.

I am starting to like the idea of a reserves army. how well do you think this army will do

lv4 Liche priest with dispel scroll, talisman of preservation
20 Skeleton archers with banner
20 Skeleton archers with banner
20 Skeleton archers with musician
20 Skeleton archers
20 Skeleton warriors with banner
4 Tomb swarms
4 Tomb swarms
4 Tomb swarms
1 Tomb scorpion
1 Tomb scorpion
1 Tomb scorpion
3 Sepulchral stalkers
3 Sepulchral stalkers
1 Hierotitan
total=2000 points

I have lots of shooting plus 8 units coming up from beneath the sands

while my shooters are standing back and the enemy is coming closer, my ambushing units will come up either behind the enemy to charge in the rear or in front of the enemy to block their charges.

the hierotitan is there as a body guard for the liche priest, also to make his spells stronger and to sniper characters with his bound spell

It's be fun, but you'll have to be very lucky for you to win much with it, e.g. get most of your units to actually come up and where you want them, opponent's constantly fail stubborn re-rollable break tests on the small few times you win combat.

Yeah it feels like a really fun army list, i like the idea of my enemy comig closer then something popping up beside him.

I'm not sure how competitive it will be though
