Not necessary. 1 Vampire with summon ghouls and ghoulkin will be enough to keep numbers up.

Drop the armour.

I say this again and again, 175 points for a very fast, very tough monster that regenerates is an absolute no brainer. In these smaller games, he will trample heros and cause damage to most units. He is fast enough to get a flank charge off. He is also reliable and doesn't need to be near a vampire.

3 heros at 750 points is over kill. Seeing as a Vampire is one of the toughest things availiable in the hero department, 2 would be waaay OTT.

Only thing I would like to see is a unit of Fell bats, just incase theres a bolt thrower or something.

Either. Although, you may ish to consider using the magic vamp as the general and dropping the other. A Varghulf can be your character killer.

Zombies are aful, but they make fantastic tarpits for tough enemies, they can stop flank charges and such forth when summoned into place.
They also cause fear, important.

This list focusses on ghouls, 2 ghoul summoners, 40 ghouls, and some fell bats for war machines, march blocking etc.
One thing I want to ask: should i drop the fell bats for a necromancer with VDM and RD
