Tomb Kings is very balanced WHFB army, but sometimes im dream about this :
Core 0-1 (if LHP leads army then 0-3)
Mummy 5-20 (M 4,WS 3,S 4,T 4,W 1,I 2,A 2,Ld 9) Poison,Undead,Magic Resist 1,Cursing Aura -1 to hit,Skirmish(maybee can be scouts), cost 15pt
Royal mummy (as champion) +1att, +10pt
Tomb Scorpion 1-2 (M 7,WS 4,S 5,T 5,W 3,I 6,A 3,Ld Poison, Undead construct, Magic Resistance 1, It cames from below, Can take two scorpions in one special slot, cost 70pt
Ancient Tomb Scorpion 1 (M 8,WS 4,S 6,T 7,W 5,I 5, A 5, Ld 10) Poison, Undead Construct, Magic Resistance 2, It cames from below, Killing blow,Large target, Terror, missfire means hit in "it cames from below", cost 240pt
Bone Giant 190pt
Magic Weapons :
Falcion of Power - +1str, +1att, 35pt
I think Tomb Guard took the place of mummies. Skirmishers may be cool, but i dont know how well they would fit in with the rest of the army.
Leave my poor scorpions alone lol. I think they are great just as they are, loosing W and A would make them so much worse though. IId really like it if they had 5wounds each, they they could negate ranks and take on units, but possible overpowered.
I like the Ancient Scorpion idea, ive always thought TK could do with a big monster fot a King to be able to ride on. Possibly a Sphinx though lol.
The Bone Giant definitely needs a Point Reduction, and then maybe some weapon options like those in the Undead Constructs list.
Every army could do with better magic weapons lol.

1. Boost IB. Alot.
2. Chariots are core. Always.
3. Give Ushabti LA and reduce cost by 5 points.
And the ground did tremble, as the king marched to war...
I agree with your 3rd point, that is spot on and would make Ushabti perfect.
The IB doesnt need hugely upgrading, a little magic would make him very usable, so MWBD on a D3 seems fair to me. He is fine as his is now, the only problem is that taking one denies you the magic from the other characters.
I dont think chariots should always be core, the way they are at he moment adds good character to the army. Then again it would be typical of GW to destroy the armies character...
Another change needed is a 1pt reduction in the cost of skellies, and they can choose a bow or shield for free.
I agree with Deceiver about skeleton warrior, but Ushabti and heroes for me is good inought. Id like to see new monsters in TK army, not the cosmetic changes, TK is good as it is, but we can add more sweets in it.
misfire meaning hit in ICFB would be ridiculous.
Also, I don't think the bone giant needs to be any cheaper, he's already good enough as he is >.<;;
Personally I think the Bone Giant is overcosted, and has a terrible model.
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
Ahh what! the Bone Giant model is great lol. Though yes, horribly overpriced. Not a good enough statline for his cost, and his assault rule needs to work evey turn. He is only good on the charge.
Ok, lets look all the list :
Heroes and lords - good
Skeletons - cost -1pt
Chariots - good
Tomb Swarm - cost -5pt
Ligh Cavalry - good
Heavy Cavalry - good
Carion - good
Ushabti - armor save 4+
Tomb Guard - good
Tomb Scorpion - cost +10pt
Catapult - good
Bone Giant - cost -30pt
Casket of Souls - cost -20pt
Thats my vision.
And i like to add more monsters in the list like i said before, like mummy and Ancient Scorpion. Plus i like to have a pair smaller scorpions with unit strenght 6.
