2400pts Skeleton Themed Army

Hello All

Finally taking the plunge into starting a VC army and looking for some advice and suggestions

Now im going skeleton heavy for the theme - skeletons for the main core so no zombies or crypt horrors.

A unit of grave guard definitely and maybe a unit of black knights

I dont mind if its not that competitive (as long as i win a few game i dont mindVampire3)

Now my LGC normally play 2400pts and might take the list to a few tournies for fun

With that in mind most tourines comp the units as 450pts max so looking to stick to that

So heres what ive come up with so far............

Anything i need to change/add???

Vampire Lord, Heavy Armour, Enchanted Shield, Ogre Blade, Talisman of Preservation, Red Fury, Quick Blood = 399pts (General / Lore of Vampires
Master Necromancer, Lvl 4 = 200pts (Lore of Death)
Lords Total = 599pts

Necromancer, Dispell Scroll =90ts (Lore of Vampires)
Heroes total = 90pts

5 Dire Wolves = 40pts
5 Dire Wolves = 40pts
50 Skeletons, Full Command = 280pts
50 Skeletons, Full Command, Banner of Swiftness = 295pts (Vampire here)
Core Total = 655pts

30 Grave Guard, Great Weapons,Full Command, Banner of the Barrows – 50pts =440pts
12 Black Knights, Barding, Lances,Full Command = 342pts
Special Total = 782pts

Mortis Engine - 220pts

Main Total = 2346pts

RE: 2400pts Skeleton Themed Army

I would advise Master of the Dead for the Hero Necromancer. That would give you even more Skeletons.

Are the Skeletons Spears or Swords?

What Level is your Vampire Lord? You have spare points.

I am the Lord of Shadows. I command darkness, and all that inhabits it. Bow before me, mortals!
Always be positive-it improves your life-but don't assume you will get things-that way, failure will be slightly less disappointing, and success will be slightly more satisfying

I would seriously consider a banshee, since you will almost certainly need the streams.
streams??? I mean screams, obviously.
