Here is my first attempt at a 2500pts VC list sticking rigidly (I hope) to the rumoured % caps.
Obviously based around a Grave Guard deathstar, but hopefully it is as balanced as possible.

As I say, first attempt so please feel free to rip it apart.

Cheers

345 VAMPIRE LORD - Master of Black Arts, Dark Acolyte, Flayed Hauberk, Book of Arkhan,

180 VAMPIRE - Dread Knight, Skabscrath, Infinite hatred.
100 WIGHT KING - BSB

225 SKELETONS - FC, Spears, Warbanner
225 SKELETONS - FC, Spears, Warbanner
120 CRYPT GHOULS (15)
112 CRYPT GHOULS (14)
40 DIRE WOLVES (5)
40 DIRE WOLVES (5)
40 DIRE WOLVES (5)
100 CORPSE CART - Balefire

150 BLACK KNIGHTS (5) - FC
425 GRAVE GUARD (30) - FC, Royal Standard of Strigos
80 FELL BATS (4)

315 BLOOD KNIGHTS (4) - Std - Flag of Blood Keep.

Total: 2497
PD: 8 + 1 Bound
DD: 5
Characters: 25%
Core: 35.28%
Special: 26.2%
Rare: 12.6%

Lord sits with BSB in GG bunker hopefully staying alive and raising what he can.
vamp with Dreadknight sits with Blood Knights and gets stuck in.

Comments and criticisms more than welcome.
Cheers :)

One option would be to drop 5 Grave Guard and add a further Blood Knight.
Possibly join the mounted vamp to the Black knights to give a wider range of Vampire influence for marching.

Comments?

can you put how many skeletons 225pts make? also with the possibility of more objective based battles, you may want to drop a troop of ghouls and replace them with skeletons with full command (as you need a flag to claim an objective) unless you plan on summoning zombies on objectives, as i think the command raises first.

Remember power dice and dispel dice are now randomly generated...
