Every army has something that other armies don't. For example, Lizardmen and Tomb Kings have lots of magic while Dwarfs have none. Bretonians and Warriors of Chaos have lots of armored troops while beastmen have almost none. However, while Tomb Kings have a lot of things, there's one thing I think we're lacking, monsterous mounts. Seriously if there's one thing I envy my friend's dark elves for it's his cold ones, his manticores, and his dragons! Nearly every other army has at least one monsterous mount except for maybe Beastmen and ogres (who are monsters already) and Tomb Kings, and dwarfs. Even Bretonians have a hippogriff! However all settra gets is a stupid chariot! (I take that back, his chariot is actually pretty cool) but you know it's not like we get a 15 foot OMGWTF dragon running around with an OMGWTF super-lord riding it! What do you envy other armies for?
A Monstrous Mount wuld be nice, im a huge fan of introducing a Sphinx for Kings to ride.
We cover everything else i think... actually some kind of decent skirmisher would be nice.
Also some decent medium cav (heavy cav just wouldnt cut it fluff wise). Basically improve the HC we have at the mo and rename them Med. cav.
I'd say I envy the ability to march
I play both Warriors of Chaos and Tomb Kings... i love marching right at someone with my chaos army.... i miss that with Tomb Kings. At the same time, the Urgency incantation would be absolutely broken.
I think that the Tomb Guard should have a much higher weapon skill. They're our 'elite' unit... treat them as such!
Monsterous mount would be nice.. but, eh.. don't care so much.

Saim-Hann Eldar: 5000 Points
I used to hate that we couldn't march but it actually keeps our opponents off guard... and then we strike them in the magic phase! I do think that our elite units will be stronger in our next book, but for now we'll just have to wait. However I always didn't like how armies like The Empire, and Chaos are mentioned in nearly every book, while tomb kings are sorta on the back burner in terms of their part in the warhammer story. Hell, Vampires are mentioned way more than we are and they are from the same undead family tree!
I guess every army can't have everything and if they all did then they would be too similar. However it would be a bit cool to have a sphinx mount for 100 points or so.
I want to be able to mount my TK/TP on something that doesn't fall apart when hit by S7. A skeletal steed would be nice, or something monsterous.
Another thing we lack is a decent armour save. I cannot find anywhere in the book an armour save better than 3+ (BG). I want my stuff to survive it's slow movement, we make dwarves look fast.
One thing I would not change is that our chariots our the best in the game, units of 3 are deadly on the charge, I have taken out rank and file troops with a unit. Now we need something strong enough to support them, give us uber-cavalry like everyone else.
my thing is... according to our tomb kings fluff.. "as old as it is" th tomb kings armies were around for Millenia pounding into anyone bordering there territories.
We're supposed to be the oldest, most militaristic civilization to ever grace the planet, and now were undead... so apparently that makes us worse then everyone lol.
what i mean by that is, most things have better weapon skill, better armor, and OUR undead should have decent leadership at least a denominator of 5 as a low point.
that's my opinion.
I envy WoC heavy cav
I envy Darkelf weapon skills
I Envy High Elf strike first (kills my charges)
I envy generals on horses.
My Soon2B DoC list below...Wip thread in the works
Well, we are immune to phsycology, we can have lots of chariots (which are organized into units BTW) and we can always revive our troops if they start to die. The only problem is that our units are soooooo last edition. WS of 3 is sooooo 6th edition and because every army neeeeeeds to be stronger in 7th edition because it's not about balance it's about saaaaales and I'm starting to go on a raaaaaant and this was supposed to be saying how militaristic we are but noooooo GW had to ruin it and etc.... I see what you mean Jin Tkand. lol I think things were fine until HE got updated. Then it all started to go wrong.
I really don't want to see us getting better armor saves because it really doesn't fit our fluff at all. I think what I would like to see is improved magic to help counter how overboard some armies can be. I would also like an improved magic item list as well. we have some decent items, but I think it could be a lot better. of course a monstrous mount would be nice as well.
