    3000 pts VC

    Since I got the new VC Army Book, I've been sitting down on a regular basis trying to come up with decent lists, but I've been having a lot of problems with overspending on my Heroes/Lords and Special/Rare selections. There are just too many good selections and I want them all! This is the first list I've put together that I don't hate, although paring it down from around 3700 points really hurt... there were manly tears running down my face when I took my beloved Cairn Wraiths and Grave Guard out..

    So, I'm open to suggestions for improvement, but there are a few things that I can't be flexible on:

    1) Mannfred stays. He's got 5 wounds, Sv 3+, +1 to casting rolls, +2 to dispel rolls, generates 6 PD, has a sword that generates casting dice and I've got him in a unit with a BSB with Regen Banner.

    2) The two units of Black Knights, the Wight King and the Fell Bats stay, too.

    3) The Skeletal Regiment with the spears will keep their spears. I have 40 of them, rather highly converted.

    4) I will not start with Zombies on the table. I'll summon them if I need them.. I'm not paying points to give my opponent free CR.

    I think the list looks good and i know i wouldn't want to face it with my woodys lol but just lookin over your set ups on the lords and heros and the one things which doesnt make sense to me is the sword of might and the dread knight because the dread knight give you heavy armour shield lance and nightmare which will take out the sword of might?

    but apart from that the list looks good.
