That's 2500 pts army, not 2500 vampires!

Vampire Lord - extra level, Carstein Ring, Lord of the Dead, Summon Creatures of the Night, Avatar of Death, Master of the Black Arts. 430pts

Joins 20 Skeletons, fcg, War Banner. 205pts

Vampire, Master of the Black Arts, Flayed Hauberk, Dispel Scroll 200pts

Joins 20 Grave Guard, fcg. 270pts

Necromancer, Black Periapt 70pts

Joins 20 Grave Guard, fcg, Screaming Banner. 310pts

Vampire, Walking Death, Nightshroud, Biting Blade. Army Standard Bearer. 175pts

Joins 20 Skeletons, fcg. 180pts

2 units of 3 Fell Bats 2 x 60pts

10 Crypt Ghouls 80pts

2 x 5 Dire Wolves 40pts

Black coach 200pts

Varghulf 175pts

The idea is that there are 4 units that can all hold their own. Grave Guard are extremey difficult to eliminate quickly, and the 2 skeletons have a vampire lord in one unit and +3 CR from BSB in the other (nightshroud ensuring he should survive).

The rest of the army exists merely to ensure that the army isn't outmanouvred, and to provide suitable counterattacking and flanking opportunities of its own. Dire wolves in such small blocks do die very quickly but unless targetted present the worry of a flank charge. The ghouls if charging can do some damage, whilst the bats, in theory, should be raised in size by my lord early on and then harass the enemy. Yeah, in theory...

Thoughts and comments?
