    fell bats as flankers aren' that hot since units of flyers are treated as skirmishers (pg69) thus, no negating enemy ranks & no rank bonus... plus, with their 40mm bases, they don't get that many models into the fighting rank. (5 at most if you're lucky!!!)

    the ghoul units need to start bigger - especially against evles who can wipe out an entire unit with their shooting/magic missiles should they get the first turn!!! against elves of all flavours, i'd start your ghouls at 15 strong... the extra 5 models/unit can mean that if they spread their fire around, you'll still have a couple ghouls left, while if they focuse fire to wipe out an entire unit, they'd be extremely lucky to wipe out more than just 1 unit!

    grave guard could also do with being bigger IMHO... i never go into 2000-2250pts without at least 18-20... 3-5 extra models may not smea like much, but it's often made the difference between losing the entire unit or having 1 or 2 models left in close games!
    also, i'd go for the banner of the barrows over the royal banner... +1 to-hit every round is infinitely better than re-rolls 1st turn only. besides, if you want your re-rolls, then just hit the unit with a vanhel's once it's in combat!

    as for combating dragons, here's a few ideas;
    - lord with the tried & tested dreadlance + red fury combo... even a dragon (or better yet the character riding the flying lizard!) is going to feel auto-hitting S7 attacks!
    - if regen is a problem, try for this little 'cruise missile lord' combo: hellsteed +
    Red Fury, Infinite Hatred, Avatar of Death w/Heavy armour, Shield, Balefire Spike, Wristbands & Hand of Dust.
    so you've got a solid armour save, a 3+ ward vs any ranged attacks and a potential 8 S7 flaming attacks to throw about after a hand of dust in the magic phase!!! (this is the combo i used to rock morghur master of skull's face btw!)
    - a lord w/forbidden lore is handy for gaining combat buffing spells like bear's anger or flaming sword. give him the talisman of lycni for the added speed boost.
    - take a dragon your own!!!lol.
    - if all else fails, just slap a massive unit of raised zombies in his face! works brilliantly if they're magic defenses are lacking a bit... that lizard will be stuck all day fighting off 50+ zombies who'll simply keep coming back for more face kicking!
