Hello all,

I have an upcoming tournament that I am preparing for and was wondering if I could get some advice or tips on how to improve. I am bound by a few restrictions, one being that I can only use painted figures. I have an additional 10 grave guard, a second varghulf, 10 dire wolves, 40 more skeletons, and a mortis engine painted that I can use to alter the list. Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Nice to see a Z-dragon preparing for a tournament, I wish you all the best.

Regarding your Lords loadouts, I would drop the AHW off the dragon rider as you already have a shield and a magic weapon.
I think you would be better served by the +1 to hit sword but that's up to perso taste. How about keeping Vamp lore on him to heal himself?

I would try to grab a 4++ on your general instead of a 5++.
Level 2 on the Master of the Dead Necro would be perfect.

I would cut 2 Ghouls to save 20pts, and merge both Skeletons units, then add their command with the Screaming banner.
Otherwise looks pretty good to me.
Hope it helps!
