This is my first VC list and also to be my first army for WFB so any input you may have I will be thankful for. Much of this list is restricted by the models I'll be using for my starting block. I'm basing the around what I currently have laying around and the Skull Pass box with the addition of 1 box of skeletons and 1 of zombies. So with that ramble out of the way tell me what you think.

new books comming out soon.

if this really is your first army i suggest collecting a smaller force made mostly of zombies.

Skellies are getting new models.
Dire wolves are getting new cheaper models.
Grave guard are getting nicer cheaper models.
Black knights dont even exist in the new book.
Vampires are ganna change alot...

so yer... might wanna wait a while.

yeah I've heard that we're getting a new book come March. However that's too long a wait for me, also this army will be a good starting point regardless of what they change with the new book. And as to the no more Black Knights:)|) change I find that kind of hard to believe, it may happen but i hope not. Besides I can find a way to use anything I make with a little effort. lol. thanks for the thoughts though. any more regarding my actual unit selections and what not?

It's a nice list, but I don't really see it having the killing power to get through most armies especially effectively. Perhaps combining two of the Zombie units will help with the fear factor, otherwise the multiple unit approach don't work so well with zombies. The dire Wolf unit might do well, but at the end of the day the Vampire only has 3 good attacks, supported by models very easily killed by anything... but at least he won't flee from panic!
