Hi all,

So here is my 3000 points army list to play vampires during this week.

I havent played vc so much with my Empire, so i need some advice.
I was thinking about loading up on magic, but i am not really sure if it would be worth it, so i have brought a little. Probably wont get anything through his enormous amount of dispel dice.
Well here it is.

General: Arch Lector, 326 points
War Altar
Van Horstmann's Speculum
Sword of Power
Heavy Armour
Shield of the Gorgon

Grandmaster, 245 points (goes with the IC knights, of course)
Laurels of Victory
Holy Relic

Wizard, lvl 2, 150 points
Rod of power
Ring of Volans

Wizard lvl 2, 150 points
2xDispel Scroll

Captain, 155 points
Pegasus
Lance, Full Plate, Shield, Pistol
Aldred's Casket of Sorcery

BSB, 125 points (goes with the Greatswords)
Icon of Magnus
Amour of Meteoric Iron

Core:
25 Halbierdiers, shields, FC, det. 9 swordsmen, 224 points

25 Swordsmen, FC, det. 9 swordsmen, 229 points

10 Handgunners, marksman w. repeater handgun, 100 points

10 Handgunners, marksman w. repeater handgun, 100 points

10 Huntsmen, 100 points

Special:
Great Cannon, 100 points

Great Cannon, 100 points

6 Inner Circle Knights, FC, Warbanner, 221 points

19 Greatswords, FC, det. 6 handgunners, 268 points

5 pistoliers, musician, 97 points

Rare:
Steamtank, 300 points

Total 2990 points
PD: 6, Bound Spells: 3 (plus the casket and ring of volans)
DD: 6

So he will get alot of his spells through, that is for sure. But i hope to marchblock him with my huntsmen, making it easier for me to choose my targets and bring up the steamtank and waraltar to tie up a few of his blocks so my knights have time to hit their flank and my blocks have time to move up and support.
I am not sure about the character setup though... I have never used the captasus before and i am not sure he is worth it. I also dont have alot of experience with the steamtank, but i guess he wont have much which can hurt it at range. Should i change my character setup to get more magic? Change something for a warrior priest to get more DD and hatred on a unit?

Any and all comments are welcome!

Change your 2 wizards for 2 Warrior Priests, 1 with great weapon, Armour of Meteoric Iron, Icon of Magnus.
Put barded warhorse on BSB & give him full-plate armour & Griffon Standard:) fix some flagellant warbands too they´re damn effective vs unbreakable units that crumble to dust;)

So i should just forget about any magic and get Warrior Priests instead? The problem is that i dont have any flagellant models, so i would rather not use them (i am not a big fan of proxies).
If i dropped the two wizards for warrior priests, i also wouldnt be able to take any dispel scrolls or the rod of power, which i think will all be quite usefull against VC.
