===85 Points Remaining===

To fill those 85 points I came up with 5 options.

>>>Option 1<<<

-Drop Black Knight Champion
-ADD Corpse Cart with Balefire

>>>Option 2<<<

-Add 10 Dire Wolves
-Add 1 Skeleton Musician

>>>Option 3<<<

-Add 4 Fell Bats
-Add 1 Skeleton Musician

>>>Option 4<<<

-Drop 3 Black Knights
-Drop Black Knight Champion
-ADD 2 Wraiths, 1 Banshee
-ADD Banner of Hellfire on GraveGuard unit

>>>Option 5<<<

-Drop entire Black Knight unit
-ADD 5 Cairn Wraiths, 1 Banshee


===STRATEGY===

Ideally I would put 1 hero in each unit of skeletons and 1 in the Grave Guard. I have many skeleton models and all 3 vampires have lord of the dead so my first 2 magic turns would be dedicated to beefing up each of the 3 units of skeletons. From there it's advance and destroy. I'm currently leaning toward OPTION 5 because I have seen how much damage a big unit of wraiths can do. Thank you for any feedback!

I would go option #1 with LoadStone. Then you should have no problem raising those skeleton units.

Bump.

Is it cheesy to put half your points in a 2k list into heros?

I wouldnt say its cheesy, (tho i did have to read the amount of points you put into characters twice when i first looked at it because i couldnt beleive it:p). Some armies have army lists where there characters are more important to the army and they cost alot of points, vampire count is one of these armies. Iam not saying that every 2k army vampire army needs half of its points spent on characters by any means but its one list where its more viable.
