View Full Version : VC Magic weapon

20-12-2008, 23:28

Because of some misunderstanding about the french translation of the Vampire Counts Army Book, i was wondering what is the precise description of the Vampire sword (errm not sure my translation is exact, a weapon costing 40 points and allowing the wearer to regain hit points for him or/and his unit).

Thanks in advance. :)

i dont know if we are allowed to give specifics, but he/she regains one wound just like the invocation of nehek had been cast on him/her

EDIT: it does say "single wound" and i would say this means it regains one skeleton/ghoul etc lost earlier in the battle.

In fact the french translation ins't clear because of the "invocation of nehek" part : does it work once whatever the number of wounds or for each wound (allowing to resurrect seveal blood knights for exemple)?

Once per wound

It heals the vampire that's using it first, then any models in the unit up to the starting maximum. If you have a 'master' bloodline power, it works great because you can raise more than the unit started with.

No you can't, check the FAQ - it quite clearly states that mastery powers have no effect on the blood drinker/tomb blade.

Still, the blood drinker is still one of the best magic weapons for vampires.
