Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've been playing 40k for a while now and am gonna start a WHFB army soon. I bought the Tomb Kings book yesterday and read through it. A tactic that stood out to me while reading through the book revolved around using some nice-sized units of chariots (5 strong) supported by a block of skeletal bowmen and a couple smaller units of light cavalry to support the chariots on the flank. I would couple this with Khalida's poisoned arrow's of Asp ability to give the archers some effective killing power to soften up units before the chariots charge. Has anyone else tried this before and if so, how effective was it?
yeah it's okay but the units such as charitos and horsemen shoiuld be in cc not shooting
by far the best tq khalida army i've seen was her 3 preists a casket a skull catapalt and 4 tomb scorps with the rest being loaded into unit after unit of bowmen (the scorps came out and pretty much run havok stopping marches tying up units etc while you shoot the crap outof anything the least bit fast or shooty then pick out the rest )
it works better than ya think it would since ya can get a second shooting phase due to incantations and the quality of tk shooting (yes you heard me do the math these boneheads have better shooting capabilities than elves) personally i don't like the casket so i would switch out for a 2cnd catapult or lose the catapults altogether and get more bow boyz

Thanks for the input. Just to clarify, I wouldn't use the chariots to shoot, they are used to flank charge and slow down the enemy. The light cavalry supports them with their shooting as they move up the flank(s). Again, thanks for the insight.
