Hey Man looks good.

I have been looking at heroslayer also and it seems really solid actualy esp for a vamp lord thats gonna expect a bunch of incoming killers.

Personally I think skelletons are alot weaker than ghouls, and I might be wrong but the take and hold mission just requires any standard not necesarily core.

The VC was an army that I was looking at (liked the theme/feel) but I've heard that the new 8th ed. rules really nerf the VC. What units would you have used otherwise or would this army have worked about the same?

Cheers guys, to be honest i think in 7th i would have taken 3-4 vampires, 3 very small units for core and the rest pretty much the same.

I like it, its actually really close to the list I'm using for 8th, main differences being the rare and special choices for my army are blood knights and fell bats.

I've heard of ppl taking more ghouls at this point limit but if you're using a bit more necromancy, then the skellies/zombies should work out better.

Well i made a few changes, the list was over the points (opps), unit choics are based on what models i liked as my army is 80% mantic models (And i really like the rev Cav), teah alot of people are saying take ghouls, i dont really fancy going out and buying a whole load of new ghouls, besides it dosnt really fit the them im going for.
