Its a bit of a small, elite army.. But designed to be very offensive. I've pretty much thrown the general away by making him a very fast 'hold them' unit, with his combination only strong characters in a unit who can kill him in one turn will bring him down. He can regenerate his lost wounds with the spear, and not crumble with the armour. So the main use of him is get him behind the strongest enemy unit, use incantations to charge as early as possible, then just hold them there killing a few until the rest of the battlefield is pretty much secured. The Prince obviously supports the skeleton unit, so hopefully with their standard they can beat and outnumber opponents to make them flee. It might be worth replacing one of the bowmen units with a scorpion to hunt warmachines. The bowmen shoot opponents fast cavalry and small shooting units, also advancing with the line and possibly providing a screen if need be.
So far, it has slaughtered an empire army and will probably be facing Dwarfs soon.
What do you do with your priests? It sounds like they aren't in any units, and the only trouble with that is they can be singled out and shot at. That was the only issue I see with this list.
Well, if there are trees around (usually are) I stick them in there so they can't be shot at, or they run along behind my army supporting from the rear. Back there, the only thing that can really get them easily is guess range weapons.
Though I agree, they can be a bit exposed. I've chucked them in the bow units once to hide them from skirmishers that got close too.
Also, in my gaming group, the others don't like the 7th ed rule where lone characters can be shot even when close to units, so we have a houserule not to use that.
Also, you said your list was pretty offensive, so I'm assuming you move down the field pretty quickly if you can. Do you ever have any trouble with fast units (flyers possibly) sneaking around you and getting to your SSC? Since the SSC isn't very mobile, I was thinking maybe a Bone Giant might work better if you had that issue.
I haven't had many games with the list, so not yet. I usually leave a unit of archers right next to it, they always try to take care of fliers or fast cavalry.
Last game a unit of empire knights managed to get past my army, smash the archers then destroy the SSC. That left their rear open to my fast moving chariots though.
Knights and heavily armoured things are probably the biggest weakness, chariots do very little damage against armour. All I really have to stop them is the Ushabti, and they can't be everywhere at once.
