Alright, the foot soldiers advance down the middle, while the cavalry guards the flanks. The 6 man black knight squad should be able to reliably take out an anvil unit from the front. The vamp lord sticks closely behind the grave guard in the middle line. The standard bearer joins up with the grave guard, while the necromancers go in the skellie squads on each side of the grave guard. The wraiths will go after missile units/round up fleeing units. Oh, and one quick question. Does summon undead horde allow me to add to skellie units beyond their original unit size provided I have lord of the dead? Thanks, and comments are more than welcome!

Looks like a solid by the book vamp army.

Anyone else? How does my vamp lord look? Is he too expensive for what he does? Also, could anyone answer my question?

No, you can't combine Lord of the Dead and Summon Undead Horde. You can use it to heal your existing Skellie blocks, but you can't use it to raise new ones.

Also, I think your Skellie blocks are too small. Try going for 20-25 per unit.
