I'm basically a noob to fantasy and want to create a fun to play and reasonably strong list, my main oponent will be lizardmen:
Heres what i've got so far:
Wight king 125 points
Black axe of krell
15 graveguard 270 points
Banner of the barrows
Helm of commandment
Lord of the dead
Lord of dead
20 zombies 80
10 Skeletons 100
10 Skeletons 100
Corpse cart 100
5 Black knights 160
6 dire wolves 58
Ideas being that the hard infantry block with the wight king and grave guard take the centre, all other troop blocks run up alongside them with corpse carts close by to -2 to enemy casters and to give the graveguard Always strike first.
The dire wolves and black knights flank.
Vampires ressurectand build up skeleton blocks, the one with tomb blade goes in a block of skeletons.
The other vampire stays behind infantry blocks casting, giving helm of command to units where needed and has a flying steed to jump around giving the "vampire" march where needed.
Improvement help for a noob please?
Overall you've got some fine things going on here. I would drop the hellsteed from your first vampire, and hand it an enchanted shield instead of the cuirass, only having a 5+ save leaves you vulnerable to most attacks. The shield at least gives you a 4+ once you get to close combat. Also, the best protection for you vampires is often sticking them in giant hordes of skeletons/ghouls.
Your list is not bad. One idea is to take the sword of kings instead of the black axe for your WK. Personally I would drop the zombies/points saved from taking the sword and use the extra points to increase the size of your skellies. As I said that is just me and most of these kind of things is whatever fits your playing style.
