Hi out there,

after spending the last few weeks in the grim darkness w/o peace, love, and ice cream I decided to give my trusty old tomb kings an other try, though I am not completely happy about the recent changes. As 2500 pts are the "standard" value in my play group and as I prefer to play the same list every time and try out some tweaks only from time to time, I am trying to build a nice all comer list @ 2500 pts. For references, I have dark elves, WoC, DoC, empire, Vampires, and HE in my playgroup.
I came up with the following list and hope you can give me a hand improving it :-)

So, here's the list, thought and stuff will be found below.

Lords: 510 Pts. 20.4%
Hero: 164 Pts. 6.5%
Core Units: 625 Pts. 25.0%
Elite Units: 822 Pts. 32.8%
Rare Units: 375 Pts. 15.0%

The idea behind the list is quite simple. Shoot stuff nasty stuff / huge regiments with catapults while holding the line with the 2 kitties and the archer block. Prince goes with chariots and necro knights to form one hard flank. I am not completely sure which lore i would like to give my 2nd level 2, maybe light is cooler. At the moments, death is appealing to kill characters which are quite a problem for the list if they are hard enough (chaos, vampires, and maxed out elves). The cascet is just an auto include with 2 casters for the pd and the light is also quite nice. Carrion are in as my scorpions have recently fallen from grace in war machine killing duty. Light horsemen provide cover for riding priest, block charges, hunt warmachines, and do basically everything :-)

Let me know what you think of it, I am trying to get a bit away from my 6th ed. skelleton hore army as it does not work so well...

The list is similar to what I run and it is successful.. IT will struggle against VC and some WOC lists.. I have mixed reviews on the prince - good vs WOC and should be replaced with more chariots vs other armies. I have nothing but good things to say about stalkers too.. Best warmachine and monster hunters in the book..

No infantry? You might have problems with all cav lists like brets.

Yeahs, I wouldnt field something like this against brets. As we have no bret player in our grp I will only face limited amount of heavy cav...

@totenkopf:
If I take more chariots instead of the prince, should I use 2 small units or one larger? I once used a 15 chariot strong unit which was quite fun but also a hell (on wheel) to maneuver...

After some deliberation, I did some changes to the list, would it be better this way? I got a small archer bunker for the high priest and more horse archers by downgrading the level 4 death mage to level 2.

Heres the modified list, feel free to comment :-)
