Something worth noting is that this list won't be legal anymore in a couple of months...anyway, onto your list!

Firstly, get an extra dire wolf on one of your packs. 3 Points is not a matter of life or death really!

You are relying quite heavily on something here, and I just think it sticks out like a sore thumb. If people know which Vampire is your count he will be the priority target on your enemies list and to base their attacks around that. They will beat you simply by trying to use this spell.

The Drakenhof guard should have the banner to go with their unit name. You may be VC but that doesn't stop the enemy going after you with magic and this banner couped with a different configuration of thrall or even Lord will prove to be te undoing of many magic reliant armies.

Something else is that your core infantry blocks don't cause fear (*sob*) and they realy should be doing. Such small units are going to be piecemeat for a combat heavy army. Go for a zombie horde or combine the two blocks and use the spare points to make some of the other units bigger.

Do you have any idea where you want to pce your grave markers?

Just checked, my mistake, but 15 is still a small unit.
