    +++ a solid caster-support set-up... only thing might be to trade out the scroll for say the flayed hauberk or the nightshroud, just as a bit of protection should an enemy somehow get to your general. (ie: assassins, flying units, etc...)
    since the death of your general typically results in a 'game over' senario, it's always a good idea to get some form of protection, no matter how well bunkered you think your general will be!+++


    vampire
    infinite hate
    talismans of lycni
    Armour of night
    black periapt
    total= 175
    +++ swap the periapt for the sword of battle... 4 attacks means that you can also target units of missile troops and still beat their static combat res of 2-3 without too much worry. (ie: rank + outnumber + musician tie-breaker)
    i'd also get him the hunter in the dark power so he can jump on missile troops/gunlines right away... or else you can tip the odds even further in your favour an give him the walking death power for +1 CR, or else take beguile should you get challenged...+++


    vampire
    battle standard
    infinate hate
    dread knight
    war banner
    total = 200
    +++ i'd forget about the BSB and get another casty support vampire to help out your lord... dark acolyte + lord of the dead just to make sure that 1 bad round of rolling in the magic phase doesn't leave you lacking on your front line!
    another handy trick for res armies is to give this guy the staff of damnation which effectively gives you a 'free' round of combat across your battleline!+++


    necromancer
    lvl2
    scroll
    total = 95
    +++ keep in mind he's not actually a Lv2 wizard - he just has 2 spells he can cast! necros are always Lv1 wizards...
    you might want to think about putting him a corpse cart w/balefire for some added protection - both phsyical & magical!+++


    CORE
    20 zombies total = 88

    20 zombies total = 88
    +++ swap 'em out for some heavier hitting stuff... honestly, why pay pts for something you can just summon for cheaper?!!
    also, never, ever give zombies a banner! they're ment to die after all, so why give your opponent extra victory points for the banner?!?+++


    20 skeletons
    command total = 180

    15 skeletons
    command( joined by lord and necro) total = 140
    +++ with 2 lord of the dead casters, you can drop the first unit down to 15 as well... this will allow you to give each unit a magic banner, which is the main advantage of skellies - high static combat res. good options include the war banner, banner of the dead legion or the banner of hellfire on a spear unit.+++

    10 ghouls
    ghast total = 88
    +++ i'd swap them into 10 skellies w/champ. use them as a bunker for your lord, hidden right behind your grave guard. safest place you can keep your lord!+++

    5 dire wolves total = 40
    5 dire wolves total = 40
    +++ wolves work best as 'dragon traps', taking 7 w/doom wolf to charge into a lord on a monstrous mount and then challenging them. even with the max overkill, you'll still be left with 1 wolf, thus trapping the drangerous lord & monster for a turn, giving you time to deal with it!
    the other big uses for fast cav; march blocking, baiting, war machine/missile hunting is better preformed by fell bats actually!+++


    SPECIAL
    20 grave guard
    command
    banner of dead legion total = 295
    +++ give them the banner of the barrows so they can hit something!+++

    3 fell bats total= 60
    3 fell bats total= 60
    +++ make this 1 unit of 5. this way, they can negate enemy ranks... it also helps them last a bit longer, plus it means they're more effective in combat against gunlines.+++

    TOTAL = 1978

    thanks for your time in reading, hope to hear back

    cheers
    you really lack any kind of hard hitting unit... the grave guard are okay fighters, but they really need the help of a hitty character & the banner of the barrows.

    you might also want to look at getting a unit or two of say 6 black knights w/hell knight for hitting the enemy's flanks... overall your units can't fight worth poop! black knights, (and especially blood knights), offer some good punch to help break the enemy's battleline.

    hope this helps,
    cheers!
