So it is said of Odjiuro: His skill in arms was true and his zeal edged his chariots forth. War was as sport to him, and he hunted with his great hosts. The priests chased him across the sands for fear of his death without proper burial.
Upon his rising, he was the first to leave the city, abandoning the affairs of state in death as he had in life to pursue the sport of war and what he has declared the Eternal Hunt. Now the Eternal Hunt travels as a great sandstorm, hooves of skeletal steeds thundering across the sky, as Odjiuro leads his great host on to distant lands seeking the thrill of the Eternal Hunt.
So it is said of Djalmshai: He stood beside his father as a huntsman and his father praised his kills. The priests had no grief following him, for his skill was only surpassed by his caution. That he fell before his father surprised all. When he died his father had him placed within his own personal pyramid with twelve beautiful women to be his consorts in the afterlife.
Upon his rising, he joined his father again in the hunt in earnest, eager to continue the Eternal Hunt.
When the Eternal Hunt finds new prey, the sand coils down as a serpent striking and the chariots barrel forth, seeking their game. Often, Tomb Scorpions, caught in the sands, will tumble down into the ground to rise in the midst of combat, only to be swept up again when the Hunt moves on.
This is a little bit of fluff I drew up on my army, The Eternal Hunt. Essentially, my King was probably the most irresponsible King to ever grace the deserts with his presence. He loved nothing more than to go on expensive hunts, tracking down slaves, the enemy, and whatever prey he could find. Since my friends and I also like to wrap our fluff all up together, this is also a great way to explain why in the heck my army would be somewhere like Ulthuan!
Well, tell me what you all think!
My answer for how to improve your list: Chariots
Latest Achievement: Butchering the cursed descendants of Lahmia as they stepped upon the sands of Nehekhara. Three Vampires have met their final end and punishment. They are to be entombed for eternity in caskets filled with stinging ones.

Yeah, when my friends and I put together campaigns we try and find a way to explain why armies from across the Warhammer World are actually engaged in combat at all.
Being in Ulthuan might be somewhat of a stretch, though. TKs wouldn't have been sailing there during their Alive days, they certainly wouldn't be now that they're dead. Might be more reasonable to assume the Elves are part of one of several small enclaves left in the Old World or that they have sailed from Ulthuan for inexplicable, fickle, elvish reasons.
The Eternal Hunt is a good way of present TKs in a new and creative light, though, and its good to see players taking liberties with their armies' fluff to enhance the backstory that makes this game so great.
