So for a long time, I've loved the Vampire Counts, I've also liked the Empire but never had an urge to play them, they just didn't really seem to interest me, until reading Vampire Wars recently, and also realizing that with the new Storm of Magic rules, i could very well make an Empire army loyal to the true throne(aka the vampires) and actually have vampires "leading" the army using pacts.
So i got to thinking more on this, and the more i thought, the more ideas came unbidden to me and finally i settled on making this army to completion, hopefully by somewhere around december but i dont know if thats going to happen that fast. i'm still debating whether i want to run generic vampire lords/heroes using the SoM pact or if it might be cooler(and definitely more thematic) to use Vlad or Mannfred von Carstein as the army's allied forces leader.
i'm still not sure on an armylist but i hope to get one finally knocked out somewhat soon since its kinda needed for a project like this.
I'll be going with the more "modern" colorscheme of black and red for my Sylvanians, instead of the traditional black and purple that they wore before vampiric rule came about, none of that shenanigans those Sylvanian Reclaimation Army troops wear(I'm looking at you Lord Dan )
I've not got any pictures yet, but i'm painted two swordsmen, with another 8 well on their way, i should be setting up a lightbox sometime this week and hopefully getting pictures up as soon as possible.
