    I came, I saw, I got a different type of Leman Russ.

    The spikey ones go faster.

    98% of the teen population has smoked weed, the other 2% went straight to crack.

    I never take vampire lords in less than 2500
    my reasoning for this is because while a vampire lord is god, a count can do almost as much for 80 points less and that allows you another hero which can lead another unit, remeber, undead rely on large units with fear to make enemies flee, but the large units will never survive in combat unless they are whights, are fightning really low leadership units, or have a character in them.
    good luck

    I would take more but i dont know what to take off. I think the ghouls are a bit useless so they can go. I will use their points on 2 more black knights

    Instead of the black knights, you could take a strong unit of grave gaurd, their numbers make them something to watchout for in a 2000pt battle.
    Although you will have to make sure they actually get into combat.

    Black coach is a good idea but watch out for those cannons.
    To enable you to take more grave guard or black knights, you could remove the black coach, and add a banshee.

    Good luck with your battle

    I dont really know much about VCs, but I'd say your army looks pretty good. I'd definitley keep the black coach, theyre really good, but you should maybe get some fell bats to attack and gaurd your coach from seige weapons.

    Just my thoughts.

    Vampire lord 425pts
    Tomb blade
    *Edit* flayed hauberk changed for summon wolves
    Lv3 Wizard
    Von Carstein
    Aura of dark majesty


    Ok a lord in 2000pts? I would drop him to a Count. The count is almost as hard and is 80 pts cheaper. Although you lose the extra magic lvl, he's still nothing to laugh at. I would swap the Tomb blade for the Sword Of Unholy Power, the TB isn't that good as you get spells that can raise lots more undead. The SoUP will give you more dice thus more/stronger spells.

    Necromancer 162pts
    Hand weapon
    Barded nightmare
    Book of Arkhan
    Power stone
    Lvl 2


    Good but I would drop the power stone and give him a dispel scroll

    Necromancer 162pts
    Hand weapon
    Power stone
    Dispel scroll
    Lvl 2


    I would dump the power stone, give the scroll to the other and giv him the Staff Of Damnation. Or give him the Black Periapt and Spell Familiar

    20 Skeletons 235pts
    Spears
    Light armour
    shield
    Full command


    I like good unit.

    20 Skeletons 215pts
    Hand weapons
    Light armour
    shield
    Full command


    Same as above

    20 Zombies 120pts
    Hand weapons


    Zombies aren't the best troops in the game so I would increase their size to at least 25 (but 30's better).

    6 Ghouls 58pts
    Ghast


    Nice unit

    1 Banshee 90pts

    Again good

    2 Spirit hosts 130pts

    And another good unit.

    5 Black Knights 210pts
    Hand weapon
    Shield
    Lance
    Heavy armour
    Barded nightmare
    Wight blades
    Full command
    Banner of the barrows


    Good unit, but a bit small, I would increase their size to al least 6, but 8 is much better.

    Black coach 200pts

    I like this, but just watch out for the high S attacks.

    Good list, but I wouldn't use a Vampire lord. It would be better if he was a count and you might be able to get a Thrall, if you can arm him with the Tomb Blade. That way he's not a spell caster but will be able to increase the unit size, as well as dealing out some heafty damage.

    Heres how to win with zombies

    step 1) take a unit of about 30
    step 2) Find a big unit of infantry and get into combat with it
    step 3) Enemy unit horribly massacres first couple ranks
    step 4) win combat through rank bonus
    step 5) enemy brakes automaticaly because of fear and outnumbering
    step 6) run down and destroy enemy unit, rinse and repeat

    i also vote drop the vamp lord to a count. this will free up points and hero choices for a wraith, equip the wraith with magic stuff and spread terror (literaly) through your enemies ranks. There is one magic item that works really wel with wraiths but if you havent figured it out by now i wont tell for fear vampire counts will get better than they already are.
