Yet another one.
1950 this time, so no Lord....
Would be happy for feedback.

What weaknesses and strenght do you see?
Any changes you would do?


Also an option would be to kick out the thrall to add one more Necromancer.
What do you think would work better?

I like it, but I think you'd be happier with infinite hatred on your strigoi thrall instead of summon ghouls (unless you have some really dirty cool trick I don't know about). Trying to squeeze in an extra bat swarm would likely help more against artillery, if that's why you wanted them. But from my experience that's a good combo.

On a side note, I never pay for full regiments of skeletons, because when you have necromancers in your army, they are free. Tons of extra skeletons and zombie models are a good idea to have (if you tie your opponent up and keep summoning undead troops, you might even end up with your opponent scoring absolutely no victory points).

Thanks for the tips.
Problem with 1950 you only get 3 special choices. Therefore the summon ghouls.
I could of course dropp one BK unit to get in either some bats or some Spirit hosts.
Im not really sure about it, with only one BK i fear i will have to little direct punching power.

The many skeletons are mainly because i only have two necromancers, so i wont be able to summon enough to outnumber if i dont take many in the beginning. Also like you say it keeps quite some points save.
I might though drop one down a bit to get another wolfsrudel.

Im just still not sure if i not should run full necromancer, but then again without the thrall....
