I've been out of WHFB for a while, but I'd like to get back in and start playing again. The question is, what army? I have a mostly painted LM army, and a mostly un-painted OK army and I may go with one of those. On the other hand, the idea of a whole new army appeals, too, and I was considering a Vampire Counts army.

Now, VC are totally new to me, so I don't have a real strong handle on their best character setups, units and tactics. So, I put this trial list together, tyring to include a few tough characters and units, along with some cheap units to bulk up the force. I suppose the general idea will be to put each of the Vampires into one of the infantry units, do a bit of flanking with the cavaly units, and generally try to break and destroy opposing units.

Any suggestions to improve the characters or overall force, or on specific VC tactics are more than welcome!

Drop the zombies and buff up your grave guard, if you want them, it's quite easy to raise them with magic.
Summon summon creatures of the night will only get you one dog per spell, it works best if you have fell bats as well (getting D6 Wounds per spell).
