The Wight King goes with the Black Knights to make a pretty deadly unit, hopefully they'll be able to plow through most units frontally, prehaps they'll receive flank support from the dire wolves.

The Vampire and necromancer hang back in the skeleton unit, raising more and staying within 12" of the cairn wraiths.

The fell bats and dire wolves advance on the flanks to march block and target war machines.

Does this seem like a decent army? Anything I should change?

Hehe. Is it because my list so terribly bad or dull?

Bloody small lists...

This one looks pretty good. The magic works out well (2 dice for necro, and 4 for vamp if you use the B.P.) with two dice per spell.

Do you plan to use the wolves as a bunker? Do you even plan to have a bunker?

The only thing that bugs me is the full command on the black knights. The banner is nice but I'd rather get another knight than have a musician and a champ.

Good point about the knights.

I originally went for 6 but dropped one due to lack of points and also because I thought that with the wight king in their unit, I wont be able to attack with more than five black knights anyway. But on the other hand, having at least one extra to be able to suffer some casualties is better. So I'll drop the musician and champ in the black knights for another knight.

That leaves me 4 points over the mark, so I'll drop the command in the smallest skeleton unit and add two dire wolves instead.

On second thought, I might as well swap those ten skeletons for 10 ghouls...

Which leaves me at:

Vampire; Helm of Commandment, Black Periapt, Lord of the Dead, Dark Acolyte
Necromancer; Book of Arkhan
Wight King; Sword of Kings, Barded Skeletal Steed

15 Skeletons; Full Command
10 Crypt Ghouls
7 Dire Wolves

6 Black Knights; Barding, Standard Bearer, Royal Banner of Strigos
4 Fell Bats

5 Cairn Wraiths; Tomb Banshee

1250 points on the mark.

PD: 5 + Bound spell + Black Periapt
DD: 4 + Black Periapt

How does this sound?
