View Full Version : 200 pts. Vampire Count Warband

Please rate my tiny little warband. It uses the warband rules.

Necromancer - 65 pts.
Having a skeleton champion as general is just silly, and since the max character cost is 75 pts. a Wight Lord would be sorely under-equipped. Also as a house rule, you only get one power- and one dispel-dice below 1000 pts, which makes level 1-mages more useful.

10 Skeletons with hand weapons and shields. Standard and musician. - 95 pts.

4 Dire wolves - 40 pts.

Total: 65+95+40=200 pts.

The plan is raising lots of skeletons and autobreaking the enemy while the wolves harrases and flank charges the enemy.

The warband rules for 1-199 pts. will be used.

What do you think? :)

Hmm... hard to say, to low point limit... for me. But necromancer is a good idea... for wining, that I think, wight is good idea for playing:).

Maybe I should rephrase the question so it becomes more appealing.

What would your ultimate 200 pt. Vampire Counts warband look like?

Maybe some ghouls, or zombies? Maybe wight?

banshee 90
Necromancer 65
5 Ghouls


Necromancer can raise skeles, ghouls are totally assume in combat and also give you a unit to avoid targetting of the banshee (which although v expensive in a game lacking effective characters is goign to lethal due to scream) Also points denial due to etheral 12" move

However if you want ultimate 200 point I think Lizardmen will take it will 2 Salamanders and 10 skinks with blow pipes lead by a brave. Entirely skirmishers and will eat up units like going out fashion will salamander ranged attack

The Banshee is rare and therefore illegal. Anyother ideas? Maybe for other races as well?

200 Pt VC army;

Wraith: 90

5 ghouls: 40
5 wolves; 50

1 Fell bat; 20

You could also try asking if you can use the Necromancers army from the back of the rule book (no vamps and cheaper units). Bit cheesy but good if you can swing it.

I'm with Kohhna.

Go for a very fast, very mobile list of ghouls and dire wolves.

We weren't aloud to take a hero choice over 75 points(I think), so I didn't get to take a wraith. But ghouls and dire wolves rule in patrol rules.
