I will shortly be facing a vampire counts army led by my good friend, here is my list feel free to tear it appart and mock me etc. as I will be happy to get any advice at all . Things To expect in my friends list, Zombie dragon with a combat heavy vampire lord on top, a casty vampire lord, a few casty vamps, a unit of wights with wight king, +1 to hit banner and banner bearer with regen banner, a vargulf, a black coach, wraiths and a banshee, black knights and possibly blood knights, these are some of the units he usually fields. my army list goes like this;
lvl4, tzeentch, spell familiar, bronze armour,sword of might, horse, black toungue
khorn, hellfire sword, enchanted shield, juggernaught
sorceror lvl2 tzeentch 2 scrolls
sorceror lvl2 tzeentch BoS, power familiar and third eye
sorceror lvl 2 tzeench infernal puppet talisman of protection
exalted champ BSB khorn bloodskull pendent 195pts
16 WoC Command, slaanesh warbanner 317pts
12 WoC khorn 2nd hand weapon 222pts
20 marauders light armour shield full command slaanesh
20 marauders same as above
6 chaos knights command rage banner 325pts
5 chaos knights khorn 230pts
thats roughly how my list goes, I was hoping i wud get pandeamoniam and gateway off a few times to soften up his wights and put my lord in the knights and go killing his vampires (he always puts all of his characters in units unless they are mounted on something big such as a dragon or corpse cart etc) my BSB goes with khorn warriors, marauders are anvils as is the 16 strong unit of warriors, knights are hammers and hellcannons will try and force him to spend magic phases repairing broken units, finaly warshrine will stay behind the front line and give units a boost as they need them.
So what do you all think of my list and plan? Feel free to tear it appart as said earlier as all criticism is good .

I've got a few questions/suggestions
firstly what are u hoping to get out of your sorceror lord, who is he being deployed with, where is he going to be on the battle field. i ask this because he is obviously kitted for some fighting with the armour + magic weapon, however despite the good stat line he is still a sorceror! i reckon for the points ur spending on him vilitch might be more effective. i can tell u like the black tongue but if u keep pandaemonium up this will give u enough miscasts to get major usage out of your puppet, without damaging your very expensive lord.
for the MoS warriors you should give them shields and halberds. the versatility is very helpful.
finally consider mounting your most disposable sorceror on a disc and equipming him with the golden eye and book of secrets (fire or death) plus bloodcurdling roar. lots of very mobile firepower and the eye + mount means he has 3+/3++ against most stuff, watch out for magic thats not a missle.... this happened to me in a tourn.
This is of course just my thoughts. im sure some people will have very different, possible more valid, oppinions
The sorceror was going to go either in a unit of footmen or the knights so as to combat his wraiths if he sess them, though I'm liking the idea of using vilitch, although the black tongue was in the list because he almost always uses 1 dice to cast spells, but then again with vilitch he will be more inclined to use more dice to cast and hence more likely to miscast, thats quite a good idea. I'm also thinking the halberds are a good plan for the warriors of slaanesh, i dont think he will have much that can counter that (besides blood knights) I also like the sorceror idea. thanks very much.
