Default Vampire Counts - 1000

Hey all,
I picked up some Grave Guard and the old blister of a Necrarch on foot and one on Hoarse for cheap, and now I am going for a whole army.

Vampire
- Dark Alcolyte
- Lord of the Dead

Vampire

29 Skeletons

14 Grave Guard (7x2)

Thoughts? So far I have got 15 Grave Guard, and the already mentioned blister of vampires.

Seems fine to me for that points value, no real hitting power though or speed, you will be outflanked. I'd be tempted for less skellies for some cheap zombies to gaurd your flanks and the Helm to give one of your units great WS and to keep your general out of harms way. Give the Grave Guard Great Weapons.

Interesting look on the army. Lots of bodies, although I prefer my vamp in with my GG.

I worry your vampires are underequipped though... no armour, no magic items/weapons.

Ok, thanks for the feedback guys.
Well, I decided that that army list was a tad to boring, and such I had devised a new one.

Vampire (Necrarch)
- Lord of the Dead
- Dark Alcolyte

Vampire (Necrarch)
- Lord of the Dead
- Dark Alcolyte

14 Skeletons
- Full Command

14 Skeletons
- Full Command

10 Grave Guard

5 Black Knights

Black Coach

- 1000 on the nose.

Now I know people will tell me that the coach isnt worth his points in such small points, and i need all the magic PD I can get in little points, and he just isnt worth it in small games, but I decided I need a centrepeice for the force and a Vhargulf just doesn't fit.
Thoughts?
