Given that you don't want to dilute your inevitable glory, there's little we can add to help you.

If you happen to decide to change your army, you could consider dropping the light and heavy horsemen altogether (I'm not a fan), to get a second unit of chariots (maybe even 6 big), to move the banner on the chariots to the skeletons with spears and to add a war banner to the larger chariot unit, to consider replacing the tomb swarms and giant with 2 scorpions and a unit of 6 carrion... Just some random ideas :).

i dont like to make big chariot units, they get bogged down too easily. the horsemen are used to flank, and the fast cavalry unit, combined with the priest on horseback can easily get up and behind the eenemy. i will consider the carrion idea though.

*shrug* Why ask for feedback when you're convinced of your own ideas? Not saying I am always right (far from it...), but it seems a bit silly in the end.

Good luck all the same.

I kinda wish Tomb Kings were out when I started collecting my Vampires...I might have collected them instead. I just wish my Skeletons could have bows :P Plus Tomb Scorpions...come on.

the bows are cool, and tomb kings IMO are among the best looking models GW makes (the others being beastmen and dark elves). I just wish that we still had the Crown of Settra, which let the skeletons use the bearers WS & BS!!!

What about Queen Khalida? If I were to play Tomb Kings I'd totally use her.

yeah she's cool. my group doesnt play with special characters though. i like WFB in that the special characters are really unique and powerful, whereas in 40K they are just normal HQ choices with one or two special powers.

I'd be worried against an army like high elves or dwarves that would hurt me at range, since the army is slow, and except for the swarm you don't have much that can get across the board quickly.
For this reason I like carrion (who also can hurt your enemy marching wherever they want) and scorpions who can also be used to support your skeleton infantry against offensive armies.
Good luck, though! Let us know how your list does.
