View Full Version : New to VC-1000 points

Hi everyone, I'd appreciate some help with fine-tuning my 1000 points list:

Vampire- barded nightmare, heavy armour, enchanted shield, sword of swift slaying
Necromancer- master of the dead

18 ghouls (6x3)
14 skeletons-champion

20 grave guard- standard, champion and great weapons
9 black knights- barding, champion and standard

Total 996

Vamp goes with the black knights, the necro is in the skeleton unit.

I really would not bother with the Master of the Dead on necromancer. At this points level, Invocation of Nehek will be your only spell, and your opponent will be chugging all his dice to dispel it. And you don't really want to Irresistable Force that spell. (That or you will end up with a spell other than Invocation and it will be useless again). I would use the points to add more wounds to the Ghoul unit, or buying the Cursed Tome for your Necromancer to actually have a relevant magic phase.

Hi thanks for the feedback. I see what you mean about my Nec with MotD- even though my vamp can cast as well, growing skeletons with my level 1 Nec is a bit too easy to stop. I could drop the skeletons entirely, add some ghouls and make the Nec level 2 and put him in a zombie bunker?
