Okay, so im new to FB and have yet to play a game or become extremely familiar with the rules. I have a general idea on how i want to play this army but i wanted to get some advice from the more experienced members of the community, such as how i should play certain units or if i should drop some stuff to fit in a unit of Black Knights and so on.
lvl 4 Vampire Lord, Barded Hellstead, Dark Acolyte, Supernatural Horror,Black Periapt, Lore of Vampires
Lvl 2 wizard, Lore of Vampires, Book of Arkhan.
Lvl 1 wizard, Dispel Scroll.
Battle Standard, War Banner, Shield.
Champion, Standard Bearer, Musician, Standard of discipline.
Champion, Standard Bearer, Musician.
29 Ghouls, crypt ghast.
19 Grave Guard
Senechal, Standard Bearer, Musician, Standard of discipline.
6 Crypt Horrors, crypt haunter.
I hope you guys will let me know what you think, cheers.
This list is pretty generic for a 2.5-3k VC army. The biggest problem, at least in my eyes, is the vampire lord. In 8th addition master necros do everything that vamp mage does, but for 2/3rds of the price and this is something I think you should really consider. A tooled up master necro will cost you 300 points, giving you 170 more points for your list. Unless you are making a CC vampire, I think you are wasting a lot of points.
Also, I dont particularly like your necromancer builds. If I were you I'd take 2 plain Lvl.2 necromancers, or alternatively 1 Lvl.2 necro and 1 Lvl.1 necro with Cursed Book. They dont need dispel scrolls.
Also, Im not sure what "standard of discipline" but as far as Im aware this item doesnt exist (and undead are anything BUT disciplined). Give graveguard great weapons, and banner of barrows and they will become a good damage dealing unit. I personaly hate the notion of using them with swords and shields, its a waste of their potential.
Thank you for your input, I'll tak another look over the list with your suggestions in mind.
The only reason the vamp is lvl 4 is because I was going to stick him with the crypt horrors and from what I read, monstrous infantry can only be healed 1 wound + casters wizard lvl.
This a the 30 ghuls+ a necro would go up either side of the board while the skeleton and grave guard go up the middle.
