Default 2250pts Vampire General Help

Hello, my fellow members.

I ask you for advice, on this configuration my Lord has.
My 2250pts VC list General, has the following (it had Blood Drinker and Walach's Bloody Hauberk before):
Blood Drinker, Crown of the Damned, and the Flayed Hauberk. Powers are Dread Knight, Living Death, Supernatural Horror, and Eternal Hatred. I have been thinking of replacing Supernatural Horror for "Beguile". Also, with the Flayed Hauberk, it is not useful to have Dread Knight, right?

What do you think? Thanks for your answers.

Yeah, dread knight really isnt that helpfull. Unless you want to pay all those points for just a lance. Or you can drop the flayed Hauberk and still have a 2+ save (HA, SH, Mounted, Barded).
And it depends on what you want to use your vampire for to which powers to want. If he has a lance, rerolling a to-wound at strenght 7 isnt really that necassary, and as for terror, I don't have much luck with it, but some people do. What's your case?

And I guess you want your vampire to be a shockcavelarist guy who breaks regiments in combat right? I can suggest Dreadknight, Red Fury and a Dreadlance and Crown of the Damned. It has a 2+ armour save, 4+ ward save, 4 S7 attacks on the charge that always hit, and then (likely) 4 or 3 attacks again because of Red Fury. This way he alone can mow down 6-8 heavily armoured fellows in a single charge. Good enough to break almost anything, and with a small escort, it's better than Blood Knights

If however, you want to be more defensive, then I suggest Infinite Hatred, Dread Knight, Crown of the Damned, Blood Drinker. He has quite a big punch to give people, and enough regeneration and wounds to keep him alive.

Hey, thanks. I think I will drop both Dread Knight and Supernatural Horror, but I am stick between Beguile (is it useful? I know many Characters have high LD) or Red Fury (with the ability to regain Wounds on the unit or the user, it could be VERY useful if sticked with Grave Guard, don't you think? )

I have one thing for sure. I don't want him to be a dedicated spellcaster. The other heroes are going to do that (except maybe the Standard Bearer, who will be a Wight) :P

Put him in a Grave Guard unit (perhaps even with the wight with regeneration banner? xD) and it will not die ever! xD

And beguile can be very handy, however I have never used, but I can see it's uses. And I believe it is the enemies LD-3 that has to be tested

and I already figuredyou didn't want him spellheavy

Hey, thanks. I think I will stick with Red Fury. For someone who can restore wounds, this is very useful!

Cheers.
