    well at 500points you can play with border patrol rules.
    so for Tomb kings, you only have to take a priest, which acts as a hierophant and general. then build up the rest with what you have? an idea of what models you have would be good, but id suggest using a decent size skellie block and a tomb scorpion

    Scorpion is awesome (mine killed 24 skinks and 3 Salamanders in one battle, of course not all at once) BUT if you play against shooty army you need to burry him- if he mishaps your toasted. However I think that risk of loosing 1/6 battles is imo worth it, I can't find low-point configuration as good as the one with scorpion.
    And the ground did tremble, as the king marched to war...

    not to be a downer, but undead have a really hard time at this small of point level. There's not a whole lot of models that you can get into this army because of the expensive hero choices. If you can, I would use the warband rules. Maybe run a bunch of small 5 man skellie units. They are unbreakable and fearless, charge or get charged and if you hold, then you can flank with the next unit. You may want to get another box of the skellies or proxy some models.
    Usually you can't(don't want to) use more than 1-2 hero level models.

    magic is really poor in 500pt games and TK are usually pretty magic heavy.

    ok so with what you have it will be pretty solid to build a 500pt list.

    aim for 1k. next up, you definitely going to need one more box of skellies, 1 box of chariots, and id recommend a screaming skull catapult.

    Grab that, and we will work from there...

    If you want to play now though, might as well use all you have, you could probably get up to about a 700pt list, and play a few practice games to see how each unit works. how are your horsemen and skellies armed by the way??
    For starters, id give all the horsemen bows, or atleast 5, then leave the other 3, and if you decide you want to use heavy horses, grab another box and make these 3 up as heavy.
    Arm the warriors with hand weapon, shield and light armour for now.

    Only 1 hero allowed for 500pts and it's Liche Priest exactly.
    And the ground did tremble, as the king marched to war...

    you only need one, but if you want 2 there is nothing against it. i just figured a prince was the best way to boost the list to 500pts, otherwise you would have to max out on pointless commad etc. in order to reach 500, and things like the standard would cost you loads of VP in small games
