okay i have been out of the game for a while(about 5 years) i wanna get back in and i really like the feel to the new vampire counts. here is my army i am thinking of running for all comers. the main goal is to wear my opponent down and funnel him into my killzone. i am going to be raising zombie speedbumbs. while i raise up my main blocks of skellies and ghouls by the time the enemy has hit my lines i should be at full strength and ready to rip em apart. tell me what you guys think.

Looks pretty good if what you want is an extremely heavy magic phase and large summoned numbers, one thing i might suggest is either getting another lord of the dead or summon ghouls because at the beginign you units are going to be low in numbers and prone to heavy crumbling if they run into the wrong enemy so you might want to be able to make them bigger faster

My experience is to stick to one type of core in sub 3k games. Either Skeletons or Ghouls, that way even with only one vamp with the appropriate Mastery can usually get them up to numbers combat worthy.

Also one of yoru vamps should be a BSB.

okay i have made some suggestions to the list based on what you guys said. i am looking for complete dominance in the magic phase. im hoping on using army of the dead and a few times in the first phase allowing me to raise a few units of zombies, of the bat.

yea turn one vamp into a BSB and if u can find the points for it the regen one in your grave guard wouldnt be too bad.or turn him ethereal and put him in your wraiths lol

couldn't agree more.

it's better to pick one core choice, and spend the points you would've spent on core-buffing bloodline abilities on some other useful ability.

Agreed, too many different units to summon, can serousily hinder you

Also ive found the balefire far more effective - 1 the enemies magic is better then raising 1 extra skellie, but really depends on what your fighting

1 other thing, dire wovles and fell bats, are good for march blocks and protecting your flanks, vargs are alright, but far more ecpensive
