You got 17 points left if you're shooting for 1500 point. Use 'em .
Never put standards on your skellie archers - those are wasted points and free VPs for your enemy. If you want a command model, use the musician.
Unless you have some good reason for including skeleton cav, or don't have the models to do anything else, I'd drop them and get another Scorp and beef up the skellie units with more models.
Although I'd listen more to the other people than me, 'cause I'm not really that good of a judge.
EDIT: D'oh - with te Amulet of Pha-Stah you can't take the Collar...

Prince cant have Cofire + Amulet, its over his magic item points allowance and the amulet makes the Cofire illigal. Drop the amulet.
Id say mount your SoRav Priest.
Your skellie bowmen would work better as a larger unit(s) of 20, and add music.
May be worth making your Cav into Light, and use 5 to join the (mounted) priest. Or add music to the existing unit, but a straight swap for 3 Chariots would be better if poss.
Gotta agree with Tut for the most part. The only difference for me is that I don't like the idea of my Generals on Chariots by themselves under 2k. Personally, I'd ditch the heavy horsemen and get an accompanying chariot unit for the Prince and add another scorpion also.
I also don't really think you need more than 10 skeleton archers per unit, but that's a matter of preference. I would drop each unit accordingly and use those points elsewhere depending on who I was up against.
I recently ran a 1.5 game against my best friend's High Elves and my superstars were surprisingly the Tomb Guard (I stick my Prince here in lower point games with the Banner of the Undying Legion). Anything that can withstand the Swordmaster blender and win combat is a must. Breaking/running down his chinsy Swordmasters was the highlight of the day, even bringing over other friends involved in their own game across the room to taunt him. I don't own any scorpions yet (I don't like the GW models), and I'd already proxied my other friends Rat Ogre's as Ushabti (which sucked horribly vs. his Dragon Princes) so I couldn't bring myself to proxy Scorpions also.
just changed a bit. what do you think???
- A Bone Giant! Yeeeeeeeaaaaah Me Likes It! Keep that
- Your Second Skellie regiment (the one with LA): Make this one EXACTLY as the one above 40 points to spend elsewhere...
- The small Skellie regiment: Divide this unit so that the other two Skellie Units get five additional Skellies
- For the spare points you could afford Mirage Standard to your Chariots... Great fluff and a good Item when you got to save a character with Chariot of Fire from ranged attacks
- And, just to tell you the truth... Chariots are not Core unless you field a Tomb King They should be placed under the Title Special
I'd try to fit in the Collar of Shapesh on your Prince if he's going with the Chariot unit.
Otherwise, I can see no obvious problems.
Since they just can't do anything on their own, the Skellies need to be in BIG Units to accomplish anything. This will make every Righteous Smiting a little more nasty too, making each and every Incantation a nightmare to let through.
When the Enemy Units are approaching, start to reform the line of Bowmen to a Block ( since they cannot stand and shoot, we will not take any disadvantages from this ).
