When I'm making a 2k list I always seem to spend loads on lords and heroes. I'd like to know(roughly) how many pts people spend on lord/heroes to give me a rough guideline. Cheers
i always go for like 30-50% of my points to spend on heroes
Personally I spend no more than 750 points in a 2000 point game.
But Im a player who likes to have lots of rare choices so if you want to be heavy on magic you'd want to spend closer to 1000.
It really depends how you want to run your army.
I'm still kinda new to VC but when I make a list I use around 700-800 pts on characters. I find that if you use any more then you have a hard time finding points for the rest of your army.
Entirely depends. Characters in respect to what choices I make for the rest of my list dictates how much I spend in repsective category. One should not in my opinion get too hung up on points value but rather the synnergy of the list. Does this complement that? Does that in turn complement that to do this and so on.
If my characters end up costing 900 points so be it, if it means the rest of my army works better because of it, I will run with it.
So my answer is anything between 650-1100 points(I've never spent more than 1100 I believe). I almost exclusively play 2250pts games by the way.

In my 2250 list my character points toll up to 1050 pretty mad but hopefully worth it
It depends on what you are going to do with your army. If you are planning to run a mixed or combat heavy character section, I would try to spend only a few points on characters. You will need to have a hefty army around them to soak up bullets and help them to deal out damage.
If you are going to go magic heavy, and focus on doing a lot of raising, then you can spend a lot more on characters, because you can run smaller units of skeletons or zombies, and feel safe knowing that you can probably bulk them up quickly. I have a unit of 14 skeletons, balloon out to 45 in a single turn thanks to my heavy casting army. They couldn't kill much, but that's what my specials and rares were for.
My typical character loadout for a 2k game is:Lady Christobel: Lvl4 Vampire Lord w/ Master of the Black Arts, Dark Acolyte, Lord of the Dead, Skullstaff, Helm of Commandment
Sir Castille: Lvl1 Vampire BSB w/ walking death, avatar of death, Drakenhof Banner
Sir Alexandre: Lvl2 Vampire w/ avatar of death, Dark Acolyte, Book of Arkhan, Enchanted Shield
The way I look at it, since your characters will probably do a lot of your damage and since if their magic is good, you can buff up a lot of your units, it's sensible to spend more points on them than you might in another army. I never run a Vampire without armor and pretty much any Vamp I run will have combat or magic add-ons or both.
I usually run around 1000 pts of characters at 2k, but never less than 800 or more than 1100.

At 2000 points I spend about 900 points on my Vampires. That's because I like to have a trusty Book of Arkhan and some other "mandatory" toys. If you intend to have caster vampires like I do, then be ready to spend quite a few extra points. I never want an ordinary vampire to be more than 180, that's generally my limit. If you're going for caster vamps then you may not have to worry about armour too much.
