Welcome to Librarium Online!
a few of my friends and i just started playing WHF, and i chose the vampire counts. my friend (the one who will be playing it the most) is dwarves. what army should i have that would work well, for only a thousand points? i am trying to build it with 250 max of heroes, 250 max of rare/special, and at least 500 of core. i would like to use the varghulf with some dire wolves, as the varghulf is a vampire. other than that, i'm stumped. a little help?
I would suggest that you play with only one hero (not common that I suggest that, but now I do) and that you focus the spare points from heroes on a little more special/rare. When it comes to the part when you're supposed to build your own army, I'd say you would choose what you think is the coolest core choice and focus on it, same with Special and rare. Maybe pick two, at maximum?
Build a theme, and you will like your army alot more

You aren't going to get any magic through as he has 4 dispel dice(7th edition). Get a combat monster hero.
get some zombies to hold up any rock units(1+ save) some skeletons and ghouls.
My friend uses a vargulf and dire wolves together as a hammer so they can disrupt enemy war machines or flank/rear charge units.
You will need some speed so i advise getting some knights.
