I never really liked dire wolves. It seems everything you can use them for, summoning a unit of zombies is the better way to go. Then again this army doesn't have that much magic, so I guess you can't depend on it. (Only 8 power dice + 2 bound).

It's interesting and could do very well, but I think you'll find that you need more magic.

One thing i would do is swap the Rod of Flaming Death on the necromancer and give him 2 x power stones, and pick Van Hels for his spell, this way you have an ultimate magic phase where you can catch your opponent off guard and have a great chance of getting the spell off. However you don't have that many Heavy Hitters for it to be that useful :/.

Drop a few ghouls to upgrade your lord to lvl 4 as well, will give you 10 PD in total.

20 ghouls is too many, they are the active CR troops. Big units are more appropriate for skeletons. I'd keep the dire wolves, raising zombies is unrealiable when you really need a redirector. Your probably going to want to buff your magic as your list is really quite tame. A couple levels on your Lord and maybe forbidden lore should do the trick ;)
