Cloak of Mist and Shadows on your general, always at 1000 points ;)

Black Periapt is another good choice at low level games...

The only problem with your army I can see is that it won't actually be able to kill anything. Wraiths, Hosts and zombies are poor fighters, Fell Bats will be an easy target, so you'll have to rely entirely on combat resolution, and without many viable flanking units you'll have a hard time with that. But give it a try.

I would drop a unit of zombies and get some skellies i would then drop a wizard an take a thrall and if your really desperate for magic defence give him sword of unholy power.

also your in dire need of some dire wolves to manouver round the enemy whilst your infantry hold them up and get flank charges.

i cant take a vampire thrall as it is a necromancy list, and changing that would put me about 100pts over and thats without paying the extra for the vampire, im am considering though dropping something to take a squad of 10 dire wovles or two squads of 10 if i drop the spirit hosts, and with respect to zombies v skelies, id rather buy the zombies because the are cheaper points wise and then raise skellies during the game

about the cloak of mists and shadows what would you reconmend i drop to get it?

anyone? also do you think that it would be better to start out with smaller units of zombies and raise more in game?

Start with units of 25 Zombies (to be safe) to pay for the Cloak :)
