I'm going to play this list with three friends (Dwarves with Anvil, Empire with 2 cannons and Goblin horde). It's going to be a 2 vs 2 allied game (teams sorted randomly) and I wanted to try for the first time the Strigoi bloodline.
I'm going ghoul heavy because I love them !
My army is build around lots of small hammer and bigger anvil units.
I will deploy my two blocks with the zumbie bunker, the Spirit hosts in the front, flanked on one side by ghouls and wolves and on the other with BK and ghouls.
I will also playtest the two banshees combo.

Will take any comments, hope you like the balanced Fluff/Competition !

Looks good to me. Watch out for your thrall being charged; a charge of Empire knights or Orc Boar Boyz will kill him.

A fun strigoi list to play is the Flying Circus. Lots of fun; not that effective though.

Probably leave one of the spooky ladies at home and get more knights. 5 knights with FC + an costy banner when facing a combined army of 4k is just too small IMO.

The two banshees did a great job, but you were right about the 5 men BK units... It was not enough !
But I hade an excellent game, with a minor victory(for 3 turns) which would surely had been a massacre if it had lenghted 6 turns.

I will do a report this week-end ! And I will surely replay this list with some modifications ! It was really fun !
