I like the second list quite a lot, so all my comments are about it.
Think about losing blood drinker on your vampire lord, since if you use fire, you can cast flaming sword on yourself.
Lose the doom wolf and ghast, then get two more ghouls and run them in two ranks of 6, good for flanking.
Also think about swapping round the items on your two vampires, so both can fight quite well.
I would lose 1 scroll, since 3 scrolls and 7 DD are a bit overkill.

Last thing, don't always use fire, think about swapping lores against different opponents.

Interesting advice, I might swap Blood drinker for the Helm of commandment and use my lord as a caster only. I will drop the dispel scroll from my vampire and give him a talisman of protection or a War banner. I'll get the two ghouls too.

Thanks for the advice, more tips are always wellcome
