Well somehow the fools at gw want me at the finals - wildcard so I thought Id take my all converted vamps for their last outing before the book all changes. Since I made this army more as a painting task than a tournament army I have very low aims with this - I want to break even over the weekend on wins/losses if I can

Anyway this is what I have with this can it be improved much?

Blood Dragon Lord - Lv3 mage, nightmare, barding, Sword (scythe) of might, enchanted shield, heart piecing, strength of steel, red fury - 453

Necromancer - lv2 mage - dispell, black periapt - 140

Necromancer - lv2 mage - dispell scroll, book of arkhan - 150

10 Dire wolves - 100

5 Dire wolves - 50

5 Dire wolves - 50

5 Dire wolves - 50

7 Ghouls - 56

7 Ghouls - 56

2 Spirit host - 130

9 Black Knights - barding, banner - Banner of the barrows - 294

5 Fell bats - 100

20 Skeletons - shield, light armour, full command - 225

21 zombies - banner, musician - 141

total - 1995, 99 models, 8 power dice (+1 from periapt) and 5 dd and 2 scrolls

why the enchanted shield on the lord ?

full plate=4+
+barded nightmare=2+
+norm shield=1+

i think that another unit of black knights would do you good(hitting power).
I also think that the unit of 10wolves should be cut into 2 units of 5.

Go LF!

Only two changes I would make:

1) Drop the Enchanted shield and add Honor or Death. I would prefer something else, but for the points it's the only thing you can get.

2) Split the 10-wolf unit. They are flankers and are meant to stay flankers.

But that's just me. I respect if you don't want to change these things.

I do enjoy the old 0+ saves- so consider this a vote for the Enchanted Shield to remain! Personally I'd drop the 10 Dire Wolves down to 8 or so with a champion- great for pinning stuff like an Arch Lector or Treeman Ancient down and stop them moving next turn while you get into position to splat him...

Congratulations on getting through to the final with the wildcard, you were so close to qualifying I think it's safe to say you deserved it!

I have the exact same kit on my BD count, and it has served me well. Good luck!
