Lord V is fine, that's a pretty standard set up.

Reanimates x6: I don't take necromancers without lingering dead.  I'd swap for another hero, like the executioner, and put an aggressive drummer in here as well. (+8 points)

Reanimates x4: Too smaller to be really useful.  You could just use them to grab objectives, but you can do that in better ways.  Drop them (saves 34 points)

Reanimate Archers: Master Crafted doesn't work shooting, and you only roll 1 die in combat.  Terrible upgrade for them.  I like tempered steel (saves 1 point).  I find I do ok without rank discipline, and usually would rather have close combat targeting (saves 2 points total).

Death Knights:  I like the gauntlet.  I run without rank discipline.  They don't usually last long enough in combat, and I use mine as a mortal wound delivery service, dropping saves 4 points.


Total changes: +32 points.

With the 32 points saved, I'd pick up a pair of Wraiths (17 points) and a Carrion Lancer (15).

It gives you a nimble flanking unit and a blocker.  Wraiths are possibly the best in the game at picking up objectives or working into the backfield.

I agree with Darth Matthew's suggestions. But seeing that you're a newer player, you may not have other expansions to change out. Supposing we just kept the units the way they are, I would switch the upgrades on the two units of Reanimates. The 4-tray isn't a big threat, but Deathmist Banners can draw the enemy's attention. And the 6-tray can charge better with Aggressive Drummer, allowing you to take advantage of that 3 threat. Raven Standard Bearer also works better on a unit that lasts a bit longer so it can keep swinging early.

I would definitely drop Necromancer and Master-crafted Weapons, replacing the latter with Tempered Steel. A 2x1 Carrion Lancer w/ Rank Discipline is also a solid unit should you choose to drop the 2x2 of Reanimates.
