We play with low magic here : 4 to 8 dices... so my list is considered decent [and with the combos it turns out ratter high even if I use 7 power and 4 dispel]... also, we don't use special characters much

anyway, tell me what you think


Heroes
1 - Vampire Lord, Magic level 3, Crown of the damned, Skull Staff, Master of the Black Art, Lord of the dead, Dread Knight
445pts, goes in a unit of skellies... down side is the risk of madness from the crown... but I find it ratter thematic [hence "the mad"]. cast all with a +1, +2 if raising skellies... that's skelly raising with value 5 to 8! ratter hard to dispel with only one dice!


Troops

2 X 1 - Corpses cart with Balefire
2 X 100pts = 200pts : allow me to control the enemy's magic phase more easily, even though I lack dispel dices

2 X 12 - Skellies, spears, Full command
2 X 128pts = 256pts, each side of the last skellies

1 X 10 - Skellies, spears, Standard, champion [no musician sadly]
106pts, center unit, with the vampire in it


Special

10 - Black knights, Full command, Royal standard of strigos
315pts, heavy hitting cavalry, fallowed by a vargulf for flanking maneuver... MOST IMPRESSIVE so far : once, I simultaneously downed a dragon and a cavalry of dragon princes with one of these while...

10 - Black Knights, Full command, Banner of Barrow
325pts, ... while the other took another cavalry of dragon princes and a squad of spearelves!


Rare

2 X 1 - Varghulf...
2 X 175pts = 350pts... what's to say : they are just like my morning cereals... there GGGRRREEEAAATTT! ... plus they smell like a rotten tiger too! :D


Power dice : 7, mostly cast with +1 or +2
Dispel dice : 4, dispelled with +1 while mostly enjoying a -1 or -2 to the enemy's casting value

Total : 1997pts

Ain't you lacking a core choice to make your armylist legal?

...
well... actually... as it is written on page 88 of the VC book, and like it is in most army list... for the last 2 or 3 editions ... no, I don't lack any core since it's a 2000pts army list... meaning I require 3+ core... and 3 squads of skellies (2X 12 + 1 X 10) = 3

I doubt you have enough magic with just one vampire. Even with 5 dice + 2 pool that is ALL you got to raise three units of < 15 models that can get obliterated on turn 1 by a fair share of armies. Drop some knights to take another casty vamp mabie or just bank on the knights to break things.

I agree, skellies w/o spears are better. However, I prefer ghouls to skellies any day.

Agreed. lose the spears or the skellies! If using ghouls (works really good with the corpse carts) use the ghoulkin power.
