    Machine heavy?

    Are tomb king armies with a lot of 'machines' playable?
    the idea was a tomb king in chariot with as many chariots as possible, scorpions and ushtabi, bone giants (maybe a catapult), and 3 mounted liche priest, each in their units of skeletal horsemen... but how would such an army fair against the other races of WHFB?

    Bigger. Better. Waaagh.

    This sort of list will guarantee big fun, provided you bring a tomb king on chariot (makes chariots core to fill your mandatory slots).

    Opponents with effective artillery or magical defenses will make you pay for it.

    A chariot-based army can certainly work Just look at Settra...

    Yeah, i was looking for a chariot/construct based army with ushtabi's, scorps and BG's, everything converted to resemble Phyrexia from Magic the Gathering TCG. the army book has a section about Barrow kings so it seems to be a viable and playable idea to have such an army. And it's more than ok that artilery and high magic defense wrecks my army, it would be boring if i'd just win or just loose all the time
