Hey all,

ive got a game against VC coming up (usual affair, 2k points, 14PD, 2 carts and a general smattering of bound items). Problem is, although my army can usually take on most others and come out on top, ive never really been able to beat the counts. My manouverability is beat out by their raise and move magic, and then i just get worn down in combat. Any one got any tips for them?

BTW my usual list is the following:

Keeper of Secrets: level 4 mage, Blade of Torment, Siren Song, Allure of Slaanesh, Soul Hunger
The Masque
Herald of Tzeentch: Disc, Banner of despair
3 units of 10 Demonettes
3 units of 5 Seekers
2 units of 2 Fiends

thanks for the help,

you will need to either A kill his mages fast, or B get more magic defense.

Id suggest bigger units as your units wont win 1v1 vs a Undead block of infantry. With such little magic defense he wont have much trouble summong or vanhelsing. Drop the herald of tzeentch its a waste of points :/ make the fiend units slightly bigger, make one daemonette unit bigger.

If you are trying to outmagic him go all out, get a fully upgarded keeper of secrets. And some powerful casters.

If you are not drop most of your magic except for some scroll caddies.

Its always best to specialise (especially with magic).

well that stupidity spell works on immune to psych right? hit a few isolated units with that one. also with WS5 his zombies hit you on 5+, so if they are in combat attack them for easy combat resolution points. siren works nice to pull his units in faster then he wanted too also.
