11-07-2009, 20:17
Hi guys. Please feel free to C&C my first attempt at a VC Army list for 2250pts....

Vampire Lord
Lvl 3, Hellsteed
Master of the Black Arts, Forebidden Lore, Summon Ghouls
Blood Drinker, Cadaverous Cuirass, Crown of the Damned

Vampire (Goes with Blood Knights)
Dread Knight, Ghoulkin
Drakenhoff Banner

Vampire (Goes with Skeleton Warriors)
Dark Acolyte, Lord of the Dead
Tomb Blade, Flayed Hauberk

Raise Dead
Corpse Cart with Balefire
2 Dispel Scrolls

17 Skeleton Warriors
Full Command

15 Ghouls

15 Ghouls

5 Dire Wolves

5 Dire Wolves

5 Blood Knights
Full Command
Flag of Blood Keep


Works out as 2249pts if my maths is accurate.

For me, the units would work fine for what they are needed to do, the Necromancer would be behind them and top them up or spam zombies to tarpit nearby nasties. I think the BSB Vampire and the Vampire on Foot within their units are OK and will do their job nicely and don't really have any wish to alter them too much.

My only real problem is the Vampire Lord....I've tried to balance Combat magic items and Magical gifts, as I am unsure which direction to fully take the army - Combat or Magic heavy.

Any tips would be appreciated, especially on the setup of the Characters. I'm also intrigued by Fell Bats and Bat Swarms and would like other people's opinions on whether these units are worthwhile taking in a VC army.

My Chaos army is pretty heavy on Cavalry, so I have tried to avoid a similar theme with the VC army, just for the sake of variety!
