Welcome to Librarium Online!
Alright, so for my 1000pt army, I don't know how to outfit my Prince. The army is defensive, with only a block of TG, a scorpion, and the Prince for CC. Therefore, I really don't want him to die. What would be good gear for him to spend his points on? Right now I've got the Blade of Setep, light armor, & a shield, but it was just pointed out that he doesn't get the extra bonus for having a shield & a HW... Should I just give him Armor of the Ages and a great weapon? Or something completely different?
I'm a big fan of Scorpion armor+ Spear of Antarak (although I think you need a lord). The spear can help make a unit stick around longer. Give him that, light armor, and enchanted shield. Make sure to give your hierophant the 4+ ward thingy.
Bow down! Or I will unleash my zoinky army of surly crack babies! End this deception! I know you're hiding Martians in your head! Gimme them Martians! I am going to put butter on them! Martians! Grrr! Cease your barky noise making! Join my legions of darkness! My frowny face empire! I annoint thee! I do not copulate with Twinkies! Yaargh!
got to hand it to you, the scorpion armor is a good idea if you put him in a tomb guard unit, then give him a great weapon, and, if you have points left, a shield, so that you can have a 3+ save in combat, when you think you don't need the strenght 6 (great weapon). (that's about it.)I'm a big fan of Scorpion armor+ Spear of Antarak (although I think you need a lord). The spear can help make a unit stick around longer.

but what you say isn't right (the scorpion armour AND a light armor, can't take both.).
and I personally think that spear of antharak is WAY to expensive for a PRINCE on foot. becaus, you hit with a strength 4!! (that's not VERY high with only 3 attacks), so you won't score to many wounds, and you won't gain that many wounds either.
and I wouldn't give an enchanted shield either (because I always take a two handed great weapon, and for 13 points more then a normal shield I get an extra +1 save against shoot, to many points in my eyes).
so, I always do it like this:
19 tomb guards, full command, war banner/banner of the undying legion (your chois). with a tomb prince, great weapon, scorpion armour.
hopefully this'll help you, good luck
BTW, happy noodle boy, you can't take a lord inh a 1000 point army!!! and if you DO take a lord when you're playing 2000 points or more , I recommend you take a high lich priest
