Loads of Blocks in this list. The Lycni Vampire will be my general running around in safety boosting my ranks of skeletons. I hope this list ain't :cheese: but not too fluffy either (want it to do something & not get massacred in every single game).
Firstly I had Balefirex2 on my Corpse Carts but I removed them to boost my ranks of zombies (I believe 5 DD will be enough when Lords are not allowed at this point). Any advice will be accepted;)

Why would you add zombies to a unit when you can cast a single invocation to get even more than that? ;P

Drop zombies to 20 each, and why Spirit Hosts? You can almost have 4 wraiths and a few more points would have a banshee too in there.

I think the Spirit Hosts are a waste here x;

don't bother with standards on zombie units. they will not do alot and will just give away points.

Your general has no armour or ward save, he might die quick especially to spells that do not require line of sight.

How do you plan on dealing with large high toughness creatures? Your list lacks any heavy hitters or no armour save attacks.

He'll be quite safe as no one will probably play with a great amount of magic at this pts lvl.

str.7 vampire will hopefully be enough vs knight armour/big beasties, else the base CR of 7 in each of the skele units will give knights a hard time.

Dropped the standards for more zombies.

My suggestion would be to bring the zombies back down to 20, turn the spirit hosts into wraiths, since SH mathematically can't beat a ranked block of infantry.
