You'd be better off with the Ring of Hotek instead of the Seal of Ghrond, or else put it on a COK champion.

The knight units need to be 6 strong, otherwise any shots onto them might scatter onto the champion/characters.

A Bloodshade is a waste of points, take another normal shade instead.

Out of curiosity, why 6 Knights? Why not 5 and a character? You could save like 45 points, no?

You need at least 5 rank-and-file (so not including the champion) to prevent shots on the unit scattering and potentially hitting characters/champions.

personaly id drop the shades and get a 3rd unit of dark riders, there better use and make better counter chargers and can get were you want them fast and quickly. Shades are good, but better in 1500pt+ games when you have a unit of 15. Other wise it looks pretty well. It might be worth investing in one of those masters becoming a bsb.
The seal is a kind of waste of points in a 1k game. At most people will fealed 2 level 2s. So thats 6pd. just throw the 2 at the spell that matters. The ring should do the rest of the work. But thats down to a matter of taste and syle of play.
