    You have one spell caster that can raise your starting units of skeletons. Your Core choices of 15+15 Skeletons and 10 ghouls will easily be dealt with by shooting or magic missiles.

    Your Necromancer can only cast raise dead which can create new units of zombies but not add to them. your already strapped for magic trying to maintain your Starting core units. A vampire with the same item will have IoN and could be a lvl 2 caster with Lord of the dead. This would cost you an additional 95 points.

    If this list is based off of what you have then give it a try, learn what works then tweak.
    Its hard to offer changes as its pretty far off from what I would use.

    If you want a raising army you need to max your characters for it but then you will have less points for rare and special.

    If you want an elite army then your core usually consists of the cheaper zombies to add bulk.

    If you want Combat characters you need a good core to back them up as you won't be raising them as much.

    Never bring graveguard unless they are at 20, Ide kick a group of skelies, bring the others to 20, ghouls to 15, with summon ghouls. 2k Myself I would kick the wraiths bring the black knights to a unit of 10. For sure break that dire wolf unit into two units of 5,and then get rid of the ghast. Always better to bring a ghoul over a ghast. Usually for 2k dont be scared to spend 300-375 points on a nice lord.(I always bring a combat one,he always makes his points up +some while my magic heros raise support from the back line)Hope that brings in a few more wins for a fellow vamp player
