Bwahahah! Tremble and cower, mere mortals! Here will be paraded the mighty armies of darkness as assembled by the great and feared Lord Chulain, which at the time of scribing do consist of...

A mighty Vampire army, a smattering of Dark Elves, various characters, and some Chaos stuff. Woop! Eventually there'll be several 2,000 point armies: Beastmen, Chaos, Ogres, Orcs, etc. etc.

Until then - bar your windows and lock your gates, foolish fleshlings... :evilgrin:

Ogres aren't evil... they are just hungry! :)

Photos soon I hope?

Some shots of my Vampire Counts army, the Naktarmija of Tyrka (a Border Principality situated just below Wissenland). It's Lahmian in 5th and 6th Editions and Lahmian-esque in 7th.

The entire army as it stands, IIRC. The Fell Bats are currently undercoated and awaiting a paintbrush, while I think there's a few odds and sods lying about that need doing. It comes to between 2,500 and 2,750ish points. I still want to add a Black Coach and maybe some Vampire Knights or something.

The Zombies! This unit is comprised of dead troops from the rival Principality of Michonne, whose Princes once ruled Tyrka until the Vampire aristocracy threw them out in the War of Succession.

Skellingtons with spears...

...and Skellingtons with hand weapons. Both units can be given Light Armour but I usually don't (just raise 'em again)! There's a single zmobie not present, a pic of him will follow later together with some Wraiths.

The Grave Guard. I'm also constructing a unit with hand weapons and to that end I bought six old metals (a command group plus blister) to which I'll add one box of the new plastics.

Lady Darque, the One Who Commands! Princess of Tyrka in all but title and ruler of the Vampire Houses, on her destrier Byzant.

Thoughts? C&C?

Belief is no defence against the Princes of the Night!

Khorne is served, even in death...

Looking at the full army pic, I can see I still need to finish the odd Skellie, the Black Knights, half the Dire Wolves, and the Countess on Winged Nightmare/Dragon and the Thrall BSB on Nightmare. On the Eventual To Buy list are a Corpse Cart or two, another box of Zombies and one more of Skellies, and some Ghouls. Then it'll be done as I can field one or two of every unit in the list! :D

REally nice painting, the cloak on the horse on Lady Darque is quality.
