Hey hey all! I'm changing things up a bit and switching from Ogres to VC but, I still wanted a list that could run at stuff without too much worry. I know themed lists aren't as competitive as a normal tournament list (which is fine) but, I don't want to give games away with this list either. The list on the whole seems pretty solid to me but someone might see something that I don't. Any input would be great, thanks in advance!

If you don't want cavalry or Grave Guard I would suggest a Corpse Cart to help you out against them pesky elves. A unit of Phoenix Guard will have a munching day unless neutered a bit

Hmmmm, well I wouldn't mind dropping a necro for a corpse cart mount for the remaining necro. Though I just don't think I would have enough magic to keep my units up.

I run a strigoi themed list myself. Your's looks good. Personally I just stick red fury on my king and then add a lvl 4 vampires necromancer.

If you have the Nagash book, you can run this exact army but call it legion of the undead. Your army won't crumble when the general dies.

Don't expect to raise all that much unless you build a dedicated list with Lvl 4 + Lvl 2 and preferably Blasphemous Tome or maybe spam lvl 1 Guys around the Blasphemous Tome

Unless you go all in then don't expect to get off more than one spell per magic phase... and often you'll prefer Vanhel's

1) the SGK is inferior to a vampire lord in nearly every way save being slightly cheaper. If you're going to take him then take advantage by squeezing a level 4 master necro.

2) I think that you're way over minimum core? Something to consider. Crypt horrors might be a better buy than 40 more ghouls.

3) 2x4 vargheists I generally find to be a better buy than one unit of 6. 6 is a bit too big to be effective as a flanking force, but still too fragile to throw at units in the front.

4) strongly suggest red fury on the SGK. It's the best way to make him points-efficient. VC lords and heroes are a bit overpriced for what you get, but red fury is drastically under costed for how much it increases their effectiveness by.
