Re-doing my vampire list, with an extra black coach and replacing skeletons for zombies:


340: lv3 Count (Nehekharas noble blood, dark acolyte, ring of the night)
140: lv2 Necromancer (powerstone, black periapt)
150: lv2 Necromancer (powerstone, book of arkhan)
140: lv2 Necromancer (cursed book)
129: 19 Zombies (standard, musician)
129: 19 Zombies (standard, musician)
129: 19 Zombies (standard, musician)
090: 8 Dire Wolves (doomwolf)
120: 2 Bat Swarm Bases
235: 6 Black Knights (FC, barding, banner of the barrows)
200: Black Coach
200: Black Coach
----
2002

I know that the zombie units look small, but I wanted 3 units instead of 2 so I have dropped a cople of knights for that, and they are so easy to raise, so they will quickly increase in size

black choaches are 0-1 and batswarm bases are a waste of points. u might want to think abaout getting a scroll. and finelly were is the ghouls?

a black coach is a waste of points in 2000 point games. a cannonball hit and it's dead. the black knights are way to expensive for such a small unit. they will get shot to pieces before they get to the enemy lines. You should consider skipping the banner of the barrows and add a few knights.

And why not take a Vampire thrall instead of a necro to give you that extra edge in close combat?

57 Zombies makes a Horde?

My elves outnumber you...

(I realize you can raise some more but 57 is puny for starting)

a black coach is a waste of points in 2000 point games. a cannonball hit and it's dead. Which is why I wanted 2. But i didnt realise that they were 0-1. Oh well, never mind.


tho im a fan of a banshee over a coach Yeah, banshees are good. I was debating over whether or not to replace the 2 coaches for 2 banshees and 2 more units of zombies.

I was thinking that staff of damnation and cursed book could work well together in a zombie list, but i'd have to drop yet another powerstone from my necromancer (i like to give all of my wizards a powerstone for overpowered magic phases).

A necromancer list would work well with zombie horde:

310: lv4 Master Necromancer (cloak of M&S, warrior familiar, powerstone)
140: lv2 Necromancer (staff of damnation)
150: lv2 Necromancer (powerstone, book of arkhan)
150: lv2 Necromancer (cursed book)
195: 36 Zombies (standard, musician)
165: 30 Zombies (standard, musician)
165: 30 Zombies (standard, musician)
165: 30 Zombies (standard, musician)
64: 6 Dire Wolves (doomwolf)
64: 6 Dire Wolves (doomwolf)
283: 9 Black Knights (FC, barding, Banner of the barrows)
75: Banshee
75: Banshee

Much better! it looks fun to lay with. But i still think you should get more black knights. as they are almost the fastest thing in the army, against a shooty empirer high elf army they and the dire wolves will get shot to pieces in the first round or two
