got a battle soon and I was planning to go with my tomb kings, well this is the list:

Unnamed1500 Pts - Tomb Kings Army

1 Tomb Prince @ 172 Pts
General; Flail
Chariot of Fire
1 Chariot of Fire

to add some punch to the chariot unit

1 Liche Priest @ 160 Pts
Hieratic Jar
Cloak of the Dunes

1 Liche Priest @ 115 Pts

pritty obvious I guess

18 Skeleton Warriors @ 144 Pts

to kill annoying skirmishers and fast caf

20 Skeleton Warriors @ 190 Pts
Shield; Light Armour; Standard

my main "sponge" block

1 Tomb Scorpion @ 85 Pts

only had 1 special slot left, otherwize I would field more

3 Ushabti @ 195 Pts

strong vs pritty much everything.

5 Skeleton Heavy Horsemen @ 80 Pts

5 Skeleton Heavy Horsemen @ 80 Pts

very handfull to setup flank charges with the extra movement spell

3 Skeleton Chariots @ 165 Pts
Banner of the Undying Legion

cous I wanned atleast I hard unit, and a prince is useless on foot.
and the banner is so great :)

1 Screaming Skull Catapult @ 110 Pts
Skulls of the Foe

all my magic will first make him shoot twice, at 2 different units with -1 on the leadership can couse some real dmg/panic

Casting Pool: 2

Dispel Pool: 4

Models in Army: 63

Total Army Cost: 1496

that's the list, give me your thoughts:)

That looks like a very solid list and I can see what kind o tactical angle you're coming from, but I always prefer fielding more units of Skellies (maybe that's just because I play VC's though!).
Just make sure that your Chariots and Tomb Prince don't get caught in combat with a huge infantry block!

P.S What army will you be playing against?

maby it's smart making the unit of archers 25 with banner, so it can be used as an extra "sponge" block when needed but I'm having a hard time getting rid of something, the only thing I can think of is a unit of heavy caf, but I like having 2 flanking units.
and my tomb prince + chariot unit will charge lots of huge infantry blocks
in their flank!:skull:

I don't know against witch army I'm playing, he has alot

k, I've heard that my opponant will be dwarves, an complete hell :S
don't relly know what to do vs them though

I was looking at another forum and some one said something about a whole chariot army ( probably meaning orcs en goblins or something) but I fought, hey that cna also be done with tomb kings.
and will probably work beter vs dwarves, so here it is:

tomb prince in chariot flail
chariot of fire

tomb prince in chariot flail

lich priest
clouk of dunes, hieratic jar

15 heavy horseman banner
banner of the undying legion
( warbanner is also good, but against shooty dwarves I think it's more helpfull to have some abilety to stay alive :) )

15 skeleton archers maby not great vs dwarves but I need another core unit and I don't want to split my heavy horseman up cous they win with outnumbered fear cousing. or should I bring swarms?

3 chariots banner

3 chariots banner

4 chariot banner
icon of the secret eye ( every model +1 to hit)

screaming skull catapult
skulls of the foe
( can't leave home without it)

Divine Shadow

All those banners on those small weak chariot units is just throwing points away when they get destoyed.

hmm, they both got a tomb prince in them so they aren't really that weak I think
