View Full Version : Vampire/Vampire Lord ? Which should be my caster?

11-01-2010, 22:01
I want to run a Vampire Lord, and normal Vampire in about a 2250 list. I love the Blood Dragon fluff, but I don't want to left wanting for magic. So should I make my Vamp lord the super killy type and the little vampire my spellcaster.

Or should I make my Vampire Lord the super caster and my little vampire the one with greatweapon riding with the bloodknights/blackknights.

If your following the blood dragn fluff try and minimize there magic,M May be use your hero levels as Casters, but if i was you try and put it fluff wise that your Lord rather than work on the black arts has focused his life on martial prowess, maybe give yourself a rule that he will always issue a challenge etc.

can this be competitive though, i'd like to win some games, but not have 12 power dice doing it.

You dont need to use all that much magic to be competetive with a VC army, they have all the ability just in what they can take as standard let alone having to power up anymore.

It depends on how you want to use it. You can go the all out Magic with the 12 power dice. Or you could go for the Uber Combat Monster, stick it in a Unit of BloodKnights along side a Whiteking on Barded horse, Battle Standard with the banner of Regen. and Have a couple of level 2 Vapires to boost and raise Ghoul Units.

is regen worth it if my own vampire lord can just top up units or are bloodknights not re-raisable

its a 4+ for regen?

yes regen is 4+ extra ward style save that is negated by flaming attacks, so you can get an armour a ward and a regen.

Regen is worth it. Makes them Harder to kill and yea they can be raised up again.
