How does the DD work? Will every army still get the base 2 in the pool? If so you will find it hard to cast what you want.

I'd go with just the single core and combine those skeletons into one unit 20 strong (no spears), and give the vampire the tomb blade and put the double US banner in it.

This way you don't have to worry about raising, and can instead try for better spells like vanhels and gaze of nagash.

For MSU I would use Ghouls. Then a level 2 Vampire with Creatures of the night gift. Drop the Corpse Cart for more Ghoouls. Just 3 units of these self raising things are so damn hard to beat.

DD are as per normal (2 base).
The thing is, is it really THAT hard to cast with 4 (sometimes +1 due to periapt) PD?
The bad thing about combining would be the fact that i get 2 units instead of three which would lessen chanses for flanking, on the other hand that one unit is like a dwarf guarding his gold, nigh unstoppable and not moving an inch. hmm.

I will not be doing the ghoul thing due to the fact that i only own 10 ghouls :( but it's a nice tactic ;)

I think the list is solid. Your magic is good enough due to LotD, and skeletons aren't really MSU for the same reason.

Personally, Id take quite a few zombies aswell as skeletons to summon more of them into the unit into during the game.

Zombies are most likely out of the question, i'd have to glue 20+ of them in less than 3 days, but perhaps, if i find my old ones.. but i may aswell summon them as flanking units then? After i've made the skellies large enough ofc :D
