Why no musicians? Having the ability to reform and move is potentially massive for new armies imo. Have you tried a big unit of grave guard as a horde? I never managed to try it but it sounded good... 30 strong so all can attack +1 to hit banner and helm of commandment for 2 to hit most of the time, also with killing blow.

It is also potentially harder to lose the banners mission with it as the enemy has to kill that unit off. it may not work with your synergies but worth a thought.

oh and a general tactic which i discovered the other day which is great...and vamps can utilise it.

Take a flier, so if an ememy flees from one of your units but remains within 22" (10" +2D6") of a flier it can also declare a charge on the same unit and cause it to flee once more, this can really disrupt an ememies line.

Deleted my 1st post as there was some problems with the lists.

Having another go now.

Ruff idea is to have to offensive magic lord in the GG with Weight King BSB

The other lord (my general) sneaks off somewhere out of harms way and just looks after the ghouls,thats all he is there for - sucks that he has to be a lord be if he isnt then my offensive magic caster has to be and he will prob blow him self up and then the army crumbles

The Hero vamp goes in one of the ghoul units

Corpse cart is there to try and give ASF to the units and nothing more really

2 Wraith units will be running togeather screaming the pants off anything that comes near plus 2 units togeather in CC isnt bad with 12 str 5 attacks. Wraiths will aslo be great for things like giants, Skaven hell pit things, steam thanks etc

GG have a +4 ward from magic and war machines etc so should keep them alive + theres 25 of the buggers to kill

Vampire Lord 205pts
Forbidden Lore (Death) 35pts
Dark Acolyte = +1 magic level 30pts
Dread Knight = heavy armour, shiels, lance, barbed nightmare 25pts

Vampire Lord 205pts
Armour of Fortune = Heavy armour & +5 ward save 35pts
Master of the Black Arts = +2 power dice each round 50pts
Summon Ghouls = increase ghoul unit size 15pts

Vamp Hero 100pts
Dread knight = heavy armour, shiels, lance, barbed nightmare 25pts
Walking Death = +1 CR 25pts
Book Of Arkhan = Bound spell level 3 casts Vanhels Danse 35pts
Scroll of Shielding = +4 ward against spell 15pts

Wight King 75pts
Steed with Barbing 20pts
BSB 25pts
Banner of the Blood Keep +4 ward against ranged attacks of any kind 75pts

37 Ghouls 304pts
Ghast

36 Ghouls 296pts
Chast

Corpse Cart 75pts

Grave Guard x 25 300pts
Full Command 30pts
Bannerof the barrows 45pts

Cairn Wraith x 2 100pts
Banshee 75pts

Cairn Wraith x 2 100pts
Banshee 75pts

Lords = 600pts 25%
Heros = 395pts under 25%
Core = 675 25%
Special = 375 under 25%
Rare = 350 under 25%

Total points 2395

Coouldnt fit in the helm of commandment i would have to drop the book from the hero vamp but not sure which is better.

Also could drop the 2nd sqaud of wraiths & corpse cart, knock the GG down to 20 and get a unit of 10 black knights with FC and a banner

Let me know what you think plesae

Matt

Just so you know, if you put mounted characters with infantry units you don't get the 2+ look out sir rolls against things like cannons.

Because you have sunk 1,000 points into the characters your army is basicaly 3 blocks of infantry. You need a hammer to smash your opponants strong combat units, I would drop one of the wraith units to get some black knights. Other than that have a go with it and see what happens.

Its interesting Matt I think I would have to play it first but it does seem to lack units and possibly in terms of points spent on characters its a bit heavy at the top end.fancy a game this week?
