Vampire Counts Progress Log [W:2 D:1 L:1]
This is kind of a hard question to answer because it is dependant on both the number of vampires in your army, the size and composition of your army and to a degree your opponent as well. Overall I would say that I go for a magic orientated-all round kind of vampire.
Of course, in large games with multiple vampires certain vampires will have their specific roles - magic heavy, combat monster etc. But as a general rule of thumb I try to go for magic strongg (not heavy) but competent in close combat as well.
Dovie'andi se tovya sagain (It's time to roll the dice)- Mattrim Cauthon
Im going with a heavy focus on bestial vampires, and a core ghoul army; 2 strigoi heros with ghoul master leading, one bestial lord with flight and frost blade, forbidden lore; and one militaristic vampire heading the blood knights-- I may include a necro but not sure yet.
I refuse to be pigeon-holed!
Seriously though, I'm not entirely sure. By the constraints of the poll, I have two Magic Heavy (although they're probably more middleweight) Vampires, and one Combat Heavy (although again, not really geared all out for combat) Vampire
I delegate some vampires as combat vampires, and some as magic users.
I like to have a magic heavy lord with a ward but then have another vampire cast bears anger on him. Then just one more vampire who would probably also be magic heavy. So magic I guess though I try and make sure they have an armour save.
Very heavy magic for my Vampire Lord. He is a pure supporting character and the core of my magic phase. He also has the Helm of command so I have an extra incentive to keep him out of combat.

i take 3, 1 4 hvy magic, 1 c c monster, and 1 light magic for raising zombies and skeletons.
I would make my vampire general a heavy magic character and for the other vampires more combat orientated. I hate to put my general in the battle line and lose my whole army when he dies, so i prefer to keep him out of the battle and use him to support my the rest of the army
I take a magic heavy lord as our magic is too good to miss out and a lord is the best way to get the most out of it. My Vampires vary depending on the list but tend to be either support or magic geared.
