Which Forbidden Lore have you taken, I would recommend Light.

I'm not really sure Zombies do anything at all really. Thats a 120 points that could buy you another Vampire with Avatar of Death or something.

Damn you eyes!!! I saw your post and had to lookup the Mantic Games you were refering to. $300.00 later I'm back with even more undead under my command! Wich I wouldn't mind except I had 10k pts already! A well, now I can get rid of theses overpriced GW bits and use the Mantics.

Lord has no ward save which is a bit of a worry, and also your army is fairly slow without too much dispelling power other than a level 3 and another necromancer. I'd drop a skellie block to get a varghulf to run up one flank. Besides speed, there will just be a lack of space - If you deploy the 40 skellies, 30 GG and 30 ghouls 10-wide then that will take up a lot of space, and you can only march withing 12" of your general since you have no other vampires.

I'd change the list like this:

Lords

Vampire lord
lv.3
Master of the black arts
Forbidden lore (light)
The flayed hauberk
Crown of 4+ ward and stupidity (don't have the book in front of me)

Heroes

Necromancer
VDM and IoN, Staff of single attack per model in 12"

Vampire
Book of Arkhan, Black periapt, Enchanted shield (to burn up 5 points)

Core

40 skeletons
full command
40 spears

15 skeletons
full command

30 crypt ghouls
crypt ghast

Special

30 grave guard
full command

Rare

Varghulf

Total = 1998

The hero vamp should speed things up with the book and the ability to march, and the Varghulf should add a bit more speed. If you don't like to run a single varghulf then drop it for a black coach by dropping a magic item or two.

Vampire Counts enchanted shield isnt 5 points. You only use the points in the rulebook if you dont have the item in your armybook. I dont like the 15 skeletons that have no real place in the army, either give your vamp lord, Lord of the dead, so you can spam invocation and bring them up to a strong size, or drop them and find a better use of the points.
