Tell me what you think specifically the lord, I don't really like him.
Well first of all you cannot have the flayed hauberk and the enchanted shield... If you go with Dread knight and enchanted shield you can get the same armor save as with flayed hauberk.... or combine Dread Knight and Walach's Bloody Hauberk for a 1+ AS and 5+ ward which is nice. With your lord I'm not really sure what his purpose is... is he running with the blood knights to blood drinker them up when they fall? He doesn't seem as optimized as he could be for a combat oriented vamp lord in my opinion... my current favorite mounted combat lord is blooddrinker, dread knight, Walach's bloody Hauberk, red fury and infinite hatred with the level three wizard upgrade .... gives you a 1+ AS, 5+ ward, 4 attacks with rerolls to hit, which give you a potential 4 more attacks if they all wound and every wound heals one of your models, plus he's a decent caster... ouch!
which unit is your BSB going into? is he bunkered behind the Grave Guard and Skellies to make optimal use of the helm? ghoulkin to only move 2 minimal ghoul units seems like kind of a waste in my opinion... especially since you cannot raise them above starting size...
No screening unit for those expensive blood knights (especially if your vamp lord is in there) is kind of asking for trouble... a cheap eagle could lead that unit around the board while your opponent crushes the rest of your list... dire wolves work great as screeners to avoid being led around by your frenzy...
think you have a good potential list here though, maybe some sharper focus to make it more competitive... the scouting vamp is always a nasty surprise for the enemy though - never used the combo yet, but that must stike fear in the hearts of war machine crews! with him being solo though - would walking death be better than terror or hatred though?
He can have a 1+ save with either the enchanted shield or the walachs bloody hauberk as long as he takes dreadknight
Thanks for your help much appreciated
