I am just getting back into warhammer fantasy after playing nothing for about three years. So please don't be too vicious if this makes no sense.
General - Level 2 Necromancer
- Cloak of Mists and shadows
- Nightmare / heavy armour / shield / lance
5 Black Knights (lead by wight lord)
14 Zombies (lead by general)
- full command
5 Dire Wolves
So here is my logic. I am hoping to pull my main unit (zombies) up the middle into the bulk of the opponents army. Then pull the wolves and black knights around from behind (or beside) and use them to flank the enemy or take out any smaller units.

Any critiques would be openly accepted. I don't have any idea how this army would perform against the typical opponent.

Second I'd say if you really want knights, take just three. My gut tells me not to take any, but then again, not many opponents will have units that can handle black knights at 500 pts.
Third, the wight lord is a bit much, and if you use the warband rules, you can't exceed a certain limit of hero points. One character is enough at 500. I like the Cloak at this level because you won't face a lot of magical attacks.
Fourth, zombies suck. They always suck and always will suck. One remedy for their sucking is not to take them. Leave the zombies rotting in the graveyard back at the castle, and bring some skeletons instead. They'll stick around and even get to attack once in a while. Heck, who knows: maybe they'll even kill something on occasion. Dropping the Wight Lord will free up lots of points for them and maybe even something else.
Fifth, consider ghouls. These flesh-eaters are a cheap high-toughness, high-attack unit in any list, and in small games I've found them very effective.
Sixth, edit out the point costs for your units. Librarium Online doesn't permit point-postings that tell how much units and items cost at a base value, like your dire wolves.
Last, welcome to LO! New vamp players keep things lively!
Thanks a lot for the critique. Like I said I just kind of threw this list together using mostly the models that I already have from a long time ago. I really liked the feel of zombies (*sigh*) but based on your critique they sound rather useless so I may go ahead and replace them with some skeletons. And the only real reason I tried to include five knights was because I was under the impression that was the minimum unit size. I was just wondering if the warband rules offer an amendment to this but I can't view them (it is blocked at work and I don't have the internet at home). I hope to rework this list over the weekend and will post my updates when I get back on monday.
Again thanks a lot for the help
