Finally settled down today and got my list in order, the lists are due on Saturday so I took an hour or so and built it. Now I just got to get the models together, and start painting some more stuff, and buy a few little things...

I went a little overboard with Lords and Heroes, and didn't quite get what I wanted but enough that I am satisfied. Only thing I would like to fit in are a few Dispel Scrolls really. Model wise I think I have a good mix of Speed, Static Defense, and damage dealers.
I wanted magical dominance, since I have never played a magic heavy force. The Vampires are a great way to do this, as all are spell casters of some kind. The additional effect of Bound spells helps eat power dice or gives me benefits, so that's great.
I still need to make a few purchases here and there, namely the Blood Knights, Fell Bats, and Black Knights. Most should be here with my next check though, and all should be ready by the time the tournament rolls around.
Any help or criticism is welcome, I believe the points are right (I checked a few times, but I'm not the best at math) and everything seems legal.
I think your dispel dice count is wrong.
- Pool: 2
- Richter: 2
- Malachi / Henriette / Helmut: 1/ea
So you should have 7.
The list given isn't really magically dominant, though. Not really enough power dice for the 3,500 point level to be considered that. Figure that armies that are really magic heavy will have upwards of 10 dispel dice. My Skaven at 3,500 points have 20/21 power dice, 10 dispel dice, and 3 scrolls. The balefires will help with magic defense, but you really should try to get in a couple of scrolls. 2 should work out okay.
One real problem I see with the list is that you cannot raise anything above starting strength. I'd consider dropping a pair of skeletons from one unit to at least give Richter the Lord of the Dead ability. Just him alone should be enough with the Skull Staff - he'd have a +2 to cast invoke on skeletons (keeping in mind that you still need an unmodified 3+ on the dice to cast a spell per the main rulebook).
I'd also seriously consider giving the Blood Knights the Flag of the Blood Keep. At 3,500 points, they will need that ward save if they want to make it across the field. It's even more important if Malachi is going to join them.
Yeah the magic department sorta worried me after looking over it, I might switch some stuff around and get some more magic to play with, possibly drop the wight King for a Nerco scroll caddy.
Lord of the dead I was thinking about, but the book seems geared to mostly raising zombies, and I don't want to buy more skeletons than I need. I figured if they went down I could just easily raise them back with IoN, since they are basically static combat res. I might though if I have the time and money to do so.
flag of the blood keep, looking back on it now, does seem like a must. Might just drop a zombie unit and the Wight King for it. I'll post any updates tomorrow.
I just wanted to say that i think you have 12PD not 11, 5 from casty lord, 2 from fighty lord, 1 from arkhan vamp, 2 from rod vamp and 2 pool
