I'm not actually counting on the Mages to do anything, I know that it would be better if I just went for Mages with Scrolls, but I want to try something, getting Fire Wall and Comet.

Only Regiments of Reknown? What am I thinking? To be fluffly, actually! You see this Army has been hand picked by Borgio to lead an expedition into the Lands of the Dead to find a Vampire Count, me and my friend will be playing a Night Raid scenario with play test Rules. And of course, I'll be the attacker. I'll see if I can get the Night Raid Rules up somewhere. They're very good in Border Patrol.

Comments on the list? All I need to get is Gotrek and Felix, but other than that I can't find any cheap (money wise) Regiment of Reknown, unless I proxy Pirazzo'z Lost Legion at;
10 Crossbowmen, Pirazzo, 33 Pikemen and a Pistol on the Pay Master, at 1 Point over.

And before you say it's rubbish/crap/whatever, I don't care, I just want to have a fun game with my friend, the game isn't a contest for the list that wins the most.

It does have the advantage that you don't have to buy an army book. If your friend will allow you to grither then you can try it out a few times and see how it goes. I'll spare you my comments about weak magic.

I wonder how I'm supposed to comment on that list without calling it crap... :p

Seriously, I'd consider upping the model count in every pike regiment simply because now the Undead will outnumber you (most likely, that is) and then you'll autobreak. Which isn't nice and can lead to a rather quick game. Those wizards won't get all that much use out of their magic level 2 as the VC will most likely have quite a few mages and dispell your casting attempts rather easily. That frees up 70 points. Also, where does that Paymaster hide from magic missiles? With the Ogres?

While Paymaster is important, he's going to try drawing out Necromancer's, he's going alone. Besides, when I explain how many attacks the Ogres get, my friend will likely fear them and blast them. And he's faced Leopold's Leopard Regiment several times before, he hates them.

And anyway, since 3000 Points is hardly a crusade, me and my friend are going to up the points, with my friend teaming with my Skaven and Orc brother, in a massive 4500 Points game.

I think a few more harasser units, along with several more Fear Units, will help me.

Dont take birdmen, just, don't
They're too damned crass to think about; have you seen the models!?!?!

Got 6 of them, :P, in fact, I've used them to great effect, just swoop into trees and shoot at small, newly made units, Necromancer's then waste Magic trying to kill them, either that or ignore them, have Marching slowed while being pincushions. There's a reason for most units in that list (Dark Emmisary doesn't have one, I just want to use him for a second time, :P).

against 3000+pts of vampire counts you're going to get owned in the magic phase. You should try getting a cannon or something in their also, they're great for killing zombies, skaven, orcs chariots and pretty much everything else. and try to get more ogres in there.
