    I would probably drop the barrow kings. You can take another vamp as a BSB this way, or upgrade one of your other vamps to a BSB and drop points. Barrow king attacks aren't really all that much better than grave guard attacks so you're not gaining much.

    Definitely, switch your general to evocation with the Dark Tome you are really amping up the risk to him with no benefit in the form of decreased casting values. You could keep him as a master for dispelling and if/when the altar dies but I would probably save the points.

    If you have more chaff models to spawn then hour of the wolf is probably better than refined taste. Storm caller isn't a bad choice either. If you did want to get hour of the wolf in, definitely up the chaff amounts you have (again model dependant).

    I would try to up the model count on the grave guard by a few guys and since you don't have the corpse cart great weapons are probably a better choice than halberds (unless you wanted to add a corpse cart in, not a bad idea if you get stormcaller).

    Additionally, Varkolaks are better than dark coaches and they perform relatively the same role. If you have the model I would definitely recommend switching that out.
