There's an upcoming tournament that I'm running some list ideas for. There's a lot of new players, so if I wanted to outright win, I can just take my Sylvaneth list, but I don't want to discourage other players at their first tournament. So I'm thinking of a themed list:

General: Count Mannfred
Isabella
Vlad
Necromancer

Corpse Cart with Lodestone
Mortis Engine

4 x 10 zombies, banners/musicians.

980 points

The idea is to keep the zombie units separate until either I get close enough to charge a big baddie, like a maw krusha (which I expect), or they get engaged by smaller unit on my opponent's turn. As long as I have at least three units left, I should be getting 40+ attacks that hit on 2+, wound on 3+, and reroll ones for both. Even though they have no rend and only do one damage, I should still be able to dole out enough wounds that my opponent won't be able to save enough of them. I'm thinking that the vampires will seem like a bigger threat than the zombies, or even the mortis engine, to soak up damage before the zombies enter combat. If I can get 300-500 points out of my zombies, the vampires should be able to mop up the rest fairly easy. I know I could have a more powerful list and I have nearly every model available in Death, but like I said, my goal isn't to wipe the floor with everyone.

So does this list seem like it's at least somewhat winnable? I'm shooting for 3-1 w/l right now.
