Welcome to Librarium Online!
Alot of people at my local store play VC, so i wanted to go in a different direction.
Vampire Lord (Draco Von Carstein) 448
Crown of the damned
Vampire Thrall 135
Shield, heavy armor.
Vampire Thrall 147
Shield, Heavy armor.
5 Dire Wolves 65
5 Dire Wolves 50
5 Dire Wolves 50
5 Dire Wolves 50
3 Fell Bats 60
25 Militia 265
25 levy 215
Von Carstein Black Coach 175
10 Drakenhof Templars 340
Banner of DOOM!
So basicly, i advance with the blocks, with wolves to my sides, fell bats and scout wolves go for machines, my grave markers replenish my units and raise some more and my hammers (black coach and Knights+lord) go straight forward and smash the bejesus out of anything that moves. My second thrall, stays behind the main line and joins whatever unit gets into combat, adding killing power and raising more with his sword. First Thrall gets stuck in, and is in my list for magic defense.
critics are needed.
Doom wolf is not worth it, its the same points as a whole extra wolf and only gets you one extra attack. Drop it and buy another wolf instead, then you have an extra would and more US as well for same points.
I would really really consider changing your knights and lord setup. 800 points in one unit?!? That is an insane point sink especially at 2k. If you put a character with knights, they will only need 5 knights + character. Even without a character I run the knights at 6, much easier to manouvre and less points. Those extra models just sit at the back doing nothing. Plus I think your lord shouldn't go riding off on a horse, he should stay with the army and support them, allowing them to march further and supporting weaker units in combat.
Tomb Blade is not worth it IMO, no VC magic weapon is. But keep it if you really want to. That thrall though would be better off moving faster and sporting a great weapon IMO. Give him flayed hauberk, wolf form, great weapon and for less points he is moving 2" faster every turn, has a better armour save, and hits at s7 making him the perfect chariot wrecker.
3 fell bats isn't really enough to do much either.. I would boost them to 5 or ditch them.
That'll do for now.. Good luck with it.

*i really like the mount because it offers some protection against strength 3 attacks that make it past my toughness.
**i didnt take flayed hauberk because it prevented me from taking earthbind
ive got like 70 points left what should i do?
Ok.. Your lord has 4 wounds, a whopping t5, and a 4+ ward save, and he is safely tucked away in a unit that will cop all magic and shooting attacks and most likely most combat attacks because they are easier to wound than the lord. On the chance he does get wounded, he has a spell that can heal himself. But if you still prefer him on a barded nightmare for the 5+ armour save, go ahead. In the new rules he can safely hide in an infantry unit anyway. Are you still going to put him with the knights? Or is he going in an infantry unit?i really like the mount because it offers some protection against strength 3 attacks that make it past my toughness.
As for your spare points, there is very little you can do with 70 points. If your Templar are going without a character, definitely put another model in. If you are putting your lord with them, leave tham as they are.
You could shave off a few levy and militia and buy a banshee. Or you could boost both units to as close to 30 as you can manage. Or even reduce them both to 20 and buy another unit of levy, even if the new unit is lower than 20 models you can easily boost them with invocation on the first turn.
hmm... ok so thrall number one will get a barded nightmare and join the black nights. this should add to their killing power and such. thats 16 points.
if i remove 5 militia, thats enough points for a 10-15 man unit of levy. with a banner
so thats what ill do i guess. if any1 has more suggestion?
magic items and the like?
also i forgot i can heal myself with IoN
