First, what other pieces do you have available? If you have a unit or two of skellitons or a whack of Bretonnians, I would be tempted towards those choices first. Building an army is much like getting married... Its gonna cost a small fortune, take up most of your free time and once you want to play, you find your friends already playing with it.
If this is not the case and you are starting from scratch, you could try doing a tomb kings army with heavy conversions. If you enjoy the models from an artistic standpoint, the next logical step from painting is "dioramic"modeling. (Yes i made that word up). I would suggest Tomb Kings because of the ease of adjusting skeletons into more cinematic poses.
You could use mix armies too. Since the whole army is "raised dead" could you not have "raised" Bretonnian knights for your Skeleton Horsemen? How about an entire raised Bretonnian Army? The knights, peasants and bowmen provide most core unit pieces while the trebuchet could easily replace the skull catapult. (And that trebuchet is a nice model.)
I would then keep the carrion rather than "Raised" Pegasus Knights, but either would work.
This way, you can have the best of both worlds...
I think i might build a new army....
