He needs a ward sv. 4+ is best. 5+ is ok.

Tomb King (273pts)
Shield
Magic Items
Blade of Antarhak, Armour of Destiny
Ditch the Liche Priest hero, and give this guy a chariot. They will be your best unit

Heroes (165pts)

Liche Priest (105pts)
Lore of Light, Wizard Level 2

Necrotect (60pts)
Gambler's Armor is very useful on him

Core (592pts)

Skeleton Archers x 16 (106pts)
Musician
Liche High Priest in here
You COULD bunker your Heirophant in here, but remember, no armor, no shields, no parry, no banners. They won't protect him for long.

Skeleton Chariots x 6 (370pts)
Champion, Musician,
Standard Bearer
Banner of Eternal Flame
Banner of Swiftness. Cheap and adds +1 Movement. very important since these guys sole purpose is to charge.

Skeleton Warriors x24 (116pts)
Musician,Standard Bearer
Liche Priest in here
If you can get a champ, the Heirophant would be better here.

Special (760pts)

Necropolis Knights x 6 (420pts)
Champion, Musician, Standard Bearer
Awesome unit.

Tomb Guard x20 with Halberds (340pts)
Champion, Musician, Standard Bearer
Standard of the Undying Legion (50pts)
Tomb king and Necrotect in here
I highly suggest Hand weapon shield for the parry save.

Any ideas will help. Thanks in advance
Basically here's a few ideas outlined:

I use a 30 man unit of Tomb Guard w a Prince and Necrotect. Its amazing how much that extra 1 WS doesn't matter sometimes. What I would do, is convert one of the chariots to be the tomb kings chariot, so you will have him, and 5 normal chariots. I would drop the archers, and add a tomb prince to drop in the Tomb Guard unit. Any of the heavy armor/ward sv magic armors from the BRB will do. Honestly, I loved the archers myself, and bought 30 of them. Without High Queen Khaldia, they aren't that spectacular. Not having your BS affected by range, movment, and cover is great, but with only 16 shots always hitting on 5's with Str3, you aren't going to do much. Not to mention the chariots have bows too, I forgot that a lot when I first started.

"Take a moment, please. Ponder the depths of your insignificance."

"It would be disappointing if you were unable to overcome this simplest of defenses. Hilarious, but disappointing."
