The 2 naked Vampire Heroes will be bunkered at the back of their Ghoul units and probably the Ghouls will charge without them. The Vampire Lord is more protected, but will try to avoid combat, and has the HoC to help flanking Black Knights. The idea is to be in combat by turn 2, and with 11 power dice (2 on each Hero, 5 on the Lord, 2 pool) I should be able to get off plenty of IoN and hopefully some Vanhel's Danse Macbre. I gave the Lord a Hellsteed because it's only 10 more points than a Nightmare and it allows me to fly 20" away from any combats I want to avoid. The Varghulfs are there to keep my Black Knights marching.

On a flying mount your general can be picked out with shooting. Bad idea. Otherwise it's similar to my own list, except I use wraiths instead of vargs.

Flying mount = can't sit in units. That is a very bad thing.

If you want to try a first turn charge, you have to go for Flying Horror, as they can join units.

First of all, it is illegal to have both Enchanted Shield and Walach's Bloody Hauberk. Take Flayed Hauberk and Wristbands of Black Gold instead, they are 5 pts cheaper and you won't be taken out easily so you are pretty much safe vs shooting. The Hellsteed is just fine, I take my lord on it, but he is a bit more offensive.

Everything else is ok.
