I prefer to bring 3 units of dire wolves because I ´d like redirect charges so I can charge with other units to the flanks etc. They are weaker, but very useful.

My intention is, in magic phase, I need a Vanhels dance. In the step of choose spells, I have two mages of level 2: Vampire and Lord of the vampires. I choose first with the vampire hero and I check if he knows the dance with his 2 spells. If he knows, the lord of the vampires knows another lore (Death, Beasts anytime). If the vampire hero doesn’t know the dance, the lord knows lore of vampires so I always play a Vanhel dance. This is the cause of my lord isn’t of more of level 2. If he is more of level 2 he must choose the spells before the vampire hero and I don’t know if I have the dance and I would have to choose with the lord… and I ‘d like have another lore.

When the magic phase comes, I play of this form: 3 dices for a vanhels dance (when it will be necessary) with 2 dices from the mage and one of initial; If it be dispersed another dance with 2 dices, one from initial and one of: Black periapt or Gem of lahmia. And the book of Arkhan too

I hope your comments, and a lot of Thanks!! ^^

I don't have my Vampire Counts book on me, so I'll leave a better comment later. For now, add a necromancer, who always knows vanhel's. Also, make the wight king a vampire. 25 points should not stop you from that crucial upgrade. Another thing. Give a regular vampire the talisman of lycni, so your general can be better protected. Last thing you want is a dead lord. I'll give more in depth later. Busy tinkering with my wood elves.

A few suggestions, drop all those musicians.. undead don't really get the best benifit (+1 to rally).
You don't really need the banner of Balefire, just a basic Warbanner would probalaly serve your skeletons alot better.
Drop the Crimson Gem for a Power stone, 2d6 instead of 1d6.. and you don't have to hurt yourself :)
I'd think about bumping your general up to level 3 or 4 and just taking the lore of vampires everytime, You'll have a hard time casting much with so few casting dice otherwise.

Hope this helps.
