Greetings all. Having been inspired a bit by some recent chatter on the subject of Vampire Counts, I've written up a 1000 point list for them. Here's what I've got in mind so far...

Vampire Thrall(Strigoi)-
Infinite Hatred
Iron Sinews
@130pts.

Necromancer-
Level 2
Book of Arkhan
@125pts.

Necromancer-
Level 2
Black Periapt
@115pts.

24 Skeletons-
Musician
Standard Bearer
Skeleton Captain
@217pts.

8 Ghouls
@64pts.

8 Ghouls
@64pts.

5 Dire Wolves
@50pts.

5 Dire Wolves
@50pts.

5 Black Knights-
Barding
@125pts.

3 Fell Bats
@60pts.

TOTAL-1000pts.

So, what do you think?

Hey, have you used thegreatuncleanone.com? I was using it for an army builder, and I noticed it didn't have Ghouls on it. Thought that was pretty weird, since it has the Sylvania stuff.

EDIT: And fell bats are hot, I want me some flyers, hehe.

Nope, haven't used it, Weapon. I like doing it the old fashioned way(ie. pen and paper)

The list looks good, for a Strigoi themed army I think it is pretty spot on, I don't think there is much you can change but one thing I always try and do when taking Black Knights is to take a standard and a musician. You need all the help you can get when hitting combat and these help. Maybe you could drop some Skeletons to make up the points.

Weapon - Thegreatunclean.com one does have Ghouls in it's lists. I always use it for my army lists. Maybe you have selected a variant army list like the Necromancer one that doesn't include Ghouls.

looks good.
that thrall combo is my fave for strigoi vamps
black kights NEED banner of the barrows. It increases their WS 2 to hit on 4+

drop a ghoul unit to get:
banner of the barrows,
spears for the skellies (if you split them into 2 units, then any more that are summonned into those 2 units can have spears as well)

i think banner of the barrows makes them hit on a 3+

Hmmm...I'm liking some the suggestions here very much! I'll look into changing some things around and post a revised list. Thanks!

Strigoi looks like atricky bloodline, but man, I love the aggro look of the vampires themselves.

Strigoi is alot of fun in small games. i take one and a necromancer(general) and max out the rest of my troops. the vampire flies and swoops down, killing enemy characters. who cares if he dies?

yup. strigoi thralls are good with infinite hatred and iron sinues, but strigoi lords are a huge waste of points

I play 1000 pts of strigoi w/ one Thrall and the one Necromancer as a general. You realy don't need two in a 1000 pts.

Here is my list:

Thrall, Eternal Hatred, Iron Sinews 130

Necromancer, lvl 2, Cloak of Mists and Shadows 145


(18) Ghouls, Ghast 154

(2) Bat Swarms 130


(5) Fell Bats 100

(4) Spirit Hosts 260


(1) Banshee 90

Total: 999
