There is few flaw in the list, and here is some change i would do.

Vampire lord_ Dread knight, red fury, infinite hatred, walach's bloody huebeck-350

vampire_dark apoc, lord of dead, tomb blade, armour that give +2 saves-195
Vampire_dark apoc, lord of dead, sword of battle, talisman of protection, power stone-195

Skeletons(20)_ FC Spear-200
Corpse Cart_ with Unholy lodstone-100
Dire Wolf(5)-40
Dire Wolf(5)-40

Black Knights(9)_FC-256


Total 1998

i didnt changed your list much because i thought those were the ones you wanted to try out, but i would add ghouls and a hero based on a ghoul support, and add blood knights instead of 2 varghulf so the lord can ride with them.

Something you want to keep in mind when you construct your list is that a VC army is based entirely around the vampires. In a 2k game you want to use up ALL of your hero slots. You can have 1 lord + 3 heroes. That means 1 vampire lord + 3 vampire thralls or 1 vamp lord, 2 thralls, 1 wight king. You also only get 1 lord, so you should use him to his full potential - buy the extra mage level and give him as many powers/equipment as you can.

or a necro to drag an spar archine item around: dispel staff, book or archan or staff or even just the humble black periapt are my favs

can you take the bloody hauberk and an enchanted shield together? i thought you could only take one magic item from each category, and they are both magic armours

22-05-2008, 09:30
brambleten is correct, the rule book says you can only have 1 piece of magic armour, including the enchanged shield. my wargor has had similar dress problems....

i also realy don't like the spectoral vampire: i know that he is going in with the wraiths but i don't think they need his help and the points could be better distributed, with the banner of the barrows on the black knights, a necro with the book of arckan and the periapt on another hero if you have the room.

but on a positive note, it is a much better and more focused list

Ah thank you for catching that shield on the lord. I'll just switch it for the black periapt. On the spectral vampire though, more of a question than a defense, but is it not worthwhile to be able to cast IoN on the wraiths and add some damn fine attack power to really break units? In fact I'm thinking of dropping the banner on the skellies to make the spectral vampire my BSB for some even nastier combat resolution. Any thoughts?
