Yes, at this list the champions are not in the generaly count. So if there stands +1 champion means that this isn't counted on the topline.

6 dice is not enough to even sustain those infantry units, much less build them up to combat strength. Also, 2 units of 5 black knights are almost always more dangerous than a single big unit.

Have your lord and at least 2 vamps

both vamps should have, dark acolyte and Lord of dead

Helm of commandment is a must, and the book of arkhan is also very useless

2 scrolls i dont think is needed, my vampire list has up 7 dispel dice (8 if i save the necros one) and that stops most dangerous magic, also depending on the banner i choose for my blood knights, i might take a scroll on the necro

What do you think about the wight king? I thought the banner could help to overwhelme the enemy through fear and unit strength...

Best to go magic/magic def, only way id considered using a wight king is with the SoK's so i could killing blow stuff on 5 plus LOL also a 55 point necro, adds 1 dispel dice, and maybe 2 if you save his power dice in the black peraipt, this would help you defend yourself against powerful magics

Too many things in this game are becoming immune to fear, also if your able to summon to your skeletons, you will over whelm most, with weight of numbers
