First of all, let me say that I blame Harry for this thread. Thanks for making me and many others just plain look lazy! You're a real **** that way, you know? I am in no way the painting machine that Harry is, but there is hope for one such as myself, and maybe for some of you too. Now, on to the fun stuff.
While I have many Warhammer Fantasy armies, for some reason I have been able to sit down and paint quite a few of my Vampire Counts minis. Maybe it is because I feel I can cut corners on them and paint them “dirtier” than I normally would other armies(I am actually known for painting in a very “clean & neat” style). Or, maybe it is just that I like the undead just enough to actually be able to focus my ferret-on-crack mind on them for long enough to actually accomplish something. Whatever the case may be, here begins(and hopefully continues) my Vampire Counts army project log.
I have the following models assembled/painted:
*Blood Dragon Vampire(long-haired) w/ Fluted Heavy Armor, Sword & Dagger- PAINTED!

Yes, I have way too many Vampires. I don’t have any Strigoi because I didn't really care for the models, or for running a “Ghoul King” type of army. On to the pics...
