1000 points of vampire counts using the new army book
185 - Vampire, dark acolyte, lord of the dead, Flayed Hauberk, Black Periapt
160 - Vampire, dark acolyte, avatar of death, Talisman of Lycni
90 - Necromancer, Book of Arkhan
246 - 18 grave guard, full command,
164 - 18 skeletons, full command
- 10 crypt ghouls
- Corpse Cart
The idea will be everything moves forward with a strong center of 3x6 skeleton and grave guard blocks with a vampire in each. Then the ghouls on a flank. The Vampires and necromancer restore any wounds lost whilst the lord of death Vampire increase his unit size to hopefully get max rank bonus.
The Vampire with Talisman of the Lynci can be used to get a quick charge against war machines as Im sure he is capable of killing the crew. He will then use his superior movement to threaten the opponents flank by summoning zombies on himself with the aid of the other Vampire and Necromancer who will hopefully be in range by that time.
Rather than make another thread I shall also post my first attempt at 2k with the new Vampire book. I am not 100% happy with the list but I cant grasp why.
365 - Vampire Lord, summon ghouls, dark acolyte, master of the black arts, flayed hauberk, blood drinker (1)
180 - Vampire, dark acolyte, lord of the dead, black periapt, dispel scroll (2)
195 - Vampire, dread knight, ghoulkin, balefire spike, book of Arkhan (3)
160 - Vampire, dark acolyte, avatar of death, talisman of lycni (4)
134 - 16 crypt ghouls, champion (1) (4)
156 - 17 skeletons, full command (2)
- 15 crypt ghouls
- 6 dire wolves
291 - 18 grave guard, full command, banner of the barrows
- 5 Blood Knights (3)

I have a set of suggestions for you, although these are a test set, as I haven't really had much time with the new book yet. These are all suggestions for the 2000pt list:
1) Drop 5 Ghouls from the unit of 15.
2) Drop the 180pt Vampire
3) Drop one Grave Guard member
4) Get one more crypt ghoul for the unit of 16 to make up the numbers for the missing vampires.
5) Get a BSB with the following config:
Wight King: 125pts
Sword of Kings
6) This leaves you enough for 5 more Dire Wolves and 3 Fell Bats.
I hope this helps
Another 2k list, predominantly infantry.
Vampire Lord, summon ghouls, dark acolyte, master of the black arts, flayed hauberk, blood drinker (1)
Vampire, dark acolyte, lord of the dead, black periapt, helm of commandment (behind 2)
Vampire, dark acolyte, avatar of death, book of arkhan (3)
Vampire, ghoul kin, avatar of death, talisman of lycni (4)
17 crypt ghouls, champion (1)
17 crypt ghouls, champion (4)
18 skeletons, full command
18 grave guard, full command, (2)
17 grave guard, full command, great weapons (3)
The biggest problem with this new list is the fact that it is slow. The movement range of the models isn't that high, bar the talisman of lynci vampire, and this could hurt you against shooting heavy armies, and fast armies that can move around your heavy front attacks, and punish your flanks.
The biggest suggestion I can give is to drop a few of the ghouls and grave guard to make them units of 15, allowing you to get some dire wolves to protect you from fast cavalry.
Hope this helps
Aye, always appreciate input, just toying with ideas for now before I even consider committing to buying.
