Not much time for a full reply, but you can expect chariots and light cavalry (even his heavy cavalry is relatively light)

You also need to be careful of the tomb prince's/king's curse, and ensure that you don't get your general into combat with him/them, as if you kill him a failed save will likely kill you.

Bear in mind that whildt you can raise new units, he can only resurect dead troops, so wiping out a unit is a permenant loss to him.

He also has access to artillery and shooting.

Halelujah!! i massacred him!!
thanks for the advice really, i almost forgot he had artillery so i had to cut away some ghouls for a BK banner of doom, i played strigoi (needed the cutting power ) lots of black knights and grave guard , a necro bunker, dire wolves and a wight lord with sword of kings and some other stuff. I firstly slaughtered his horsemen and chariots (thought they were stronger than that) and then i went for his king with my BK and Dire Wolves. i killed him by turn four and after that it was really easy, just trying to get as much VP as i wanted. I actually didn't raise that much , only some Skele's to hold his ushapti-things
it was a real success.
