Hi. Im fan of Khalida my self also and she rocks, but with 2 close combat units and with no prince on one of them you are going to be in trouble! Take off that icon bearer because its no use for TK and add that prince and another catapult and one or two tomb scorpions :) then this list shoul rock.

1) Drop Light armour on the skeleon bowmen. Really, 6+ save is almost always a fail, not to mention that it will be ignored most of the time anyway. Those 40pts are wiser spent on other things.

I've played with khalida a couple of times, and as for the bowmen I've found that 40 of them in one big unit positioned in one long line (screening the rest of the army) with banner of the undying legion is very powerful. Combined with Khalidas irristible spell this unit will hurl an immense 80shots/turn poisiond arrows! This is a powerful tactic, just wanted to make you aware of it.

2) I see no use for that so expensive icon bearer in this list. Drop him. As someone mentioned you need more hard-hitter. A Tomb Prince would do you good, so that's a possibility. Or with the points saved from the bowmen you could try to squeeze in a unit of Ushabtis.
