Obviously we dont get a lot of units to use in a 500 point list but I was wondering if anyone could offer suggestions on the correct way to go about it. First the basic rules are that you have to have at least 1 core choice, no more than 1 rare and 2 specials. Can't have more than 1 warmachine but we have made an exception for TKs because chariots have to be in units, but reduced the minimum unit size to 2, as well as reduced all minimum unit sizes to adjust for the low point value armies. Finally, we cant spend more than 175 points on a character. We have also made a rule that for 500 points the lich priest or prince can count as both the hierophant and the general.
here is my list atm
148 - Lich Priest, Hieratic Jar, Skeletal Steed
126 - Skeleton Warriors, Musician
Light Horseman X 4
Tomb Swarms X 2
Chariots X 2
Total = 500
Basically my thoughts with this list is that I need to get a flank off with the horseman for me to win combat res. The tomb swarms I will send after any ranged units because they should eat them in combat res...so long as I don't misfire them lol. I am undecided if I want to go with a prince or the priest, atm I put in the priest because that Jar could proove huge when I am trying to restore wounds to a unit in crucial moments of the battles.
Any thoughts are welcome,

So youre going by the combat patrol (not Border) right?
Drop the Priests Steed for the Cloak. Maybe drop a Swarm base and boost the Skellies a bit.
To be fair, 500pts can be hard. Take a look at my Beginners Guide to TK (stickied thread) and if you can use the Border Patrol rules, feel free to use the 500pt list ive listed
take a ssc and some bowman and build a defensive army around them
i found that defensive forces are very good against most opponents and i agree a ssc and bowmen would be a good way to start! maybe backed up by a liche so that you can get in the extra shooting! but a prince if u want to hit something in cc!
