only one dispel scroll is alowed per army.
Fritz seems a bit vulnerable for your general to be honest, if he dies you loose.
if you play the mission where standards and general count for fortitude then those two skele blocks NEED to be protected at all costs (or fritz-but see above) making Hans into a BSB would help this.

It's strange to see a VCs army without graveguard too.

Since none of your vampires have summon ghouls or summon skeletons, you cannot exceed starting numbers of either your skeletons or your ghouls. If you do a bad round of CC in your own round, your units will probably crumble in your opponent's combat phase. I'd either boost the numbers to 25, or at least give one of the vampires a summon ability. Especially for the purpose of protecting your banners.

I agree with Dark Aly that your vampire is a bit too vulnerable here, and I also like the GG unit. You need some hard hitters. Skeletons are close to useless in CC, and most experienced players remember to kill the vampire first...

I agree 20 is way too small a unit size if you're unable to grow them above starting size.

You could easily lose 15 of them in one combat due to Unstable.

I would boost the skeletons up to 25-30 at least.
