Doom Wolf is a waste of points, necro with three spells is also a bit wistful as he won't be able to cast more than one a turn. Give him a black pariapt or a power stone. Be careful with infinite hatred as you HAVE to overrun.

Which spell(s) would you give the Necro?

I made a couple of changes:

Heroes

Vampire: Sword of Battle (+1 A), The Flayed Hauberk, Ghoulkin and Infinite Hatred.

Vampire: Book of Arkhan and Dark Acolyte

Necromancer: Black Periapt, Power Stone, Raise Dead and Vanhel's

Core

Skeleton Warriors x 15: HW and Shields, Full command.

Crypt Ghouls x 10: Ghast

Crypt Ghouls x10: Ghast

Dire Wolves x 6

Rare

Varghulf

Casting Dice - 6
Dispell Dice - 5
44 models

The plan is to have the Vampire General and his Vampire Mage buddy each join a unit of Crypt Ghouls for that pre-game march. The Skeletons will take the center and with a liberal sprinkling of Vanhel's, hopefully make a good tarpit/anvil, while Ghouls and Vampires make the hammer units. The Necromancer will hang back and cast what's needed, but mostly try to raise Zombies to annoy enemy units. The Dire Wolves and Varghulf will race up a flank to take out enemy war machines or wizards.

I am pretty new to Warhammer (been an avid 40k player for over a decade) so my plan and army list could be complete crap. Any advice or suggestions are welcome.

Personally, I would give the Necromancer IoN and the Book of Arkhan.
Also, make the Ghoul units 15, or make sure both your Vampires have Summon Ghouls...

If you make all three ranked units 20, and give the Skeletons FC and Banner of the Dead Legion, plus a Vhargulf, you have 300 points to spend on characters...
Which could go for the classic 1 Vampire with Flayed Hauberk and Dark Acolyte, and the other with Ghoulkin and whatever... Does leave you a measly 20 points, but see how that gives you quite a few models. If you want the Necromancer in, drop the units to 15 and make sure both Vamps know a Summon ability...

Please make your own threads... other than that, I would not take Zombie Hordes, instead grab some Skeletons or Ghouls. They are brilliant...
Also Banner of the Dead Legion is useless on Blood Knights... IMO

P.S. Welcome to Warseer :)
