View Full Version : Hero level Vampire at 1000pts?

Just wondering what equipment, magic items and lore are recommended for a hero level Vampire at 1000pts? Assuming he's not the general.

Hero vampires are pretty awful. They don't have the hitting potential to really justify their price tag, and at T4 W2 they're ridiculously fragile ontop of it.

You're better off just running a Vampire Lord. Give him a 4++, Red Fury, S7+, and a way to get rerolls to hit (either quickblood+ogre blade or a GW+book of arkhan).

Depends what you're looking to get out of him. In bigger games, I've had some joy using a hero vampire with forbidden lore: beasts, and a protective item or two, and used him in a small unit of ghouls or similar to give surprising punch out on the flanks. Ghouls with wyssans wildform and a vamp hero can dish out the hurt.
