I've been wanting to start playing Fantasy again after selling off my Orcs and Goblins last spring. I just completed a Space Wolf project to update my 40k army for 6th edition and now I want to go with something else for a while. I don't want to do O&G again and after watching alot of Warbosstae video's on youtube I am absolutely sold on VC. That range is really stunning and I want to build up an initial 1000 point army.
So knowing that is it perhaps possible someone could help me put together a decent 1000 point starting army? I need help mostly with a starting general as well as how to put together my core as well as some interesting special units to add to my army.
As far as core Im much more attracted to skeletons and dire wolves over ghouls and zombies. Are skeletons+wolves an okay combo for core or am I really missing out without the other two?
When I look at special options I really like vargheists and would definitely want them in my starting army but the hexwraiths and black knights are so tempting as well. What would be the chances of fitting in vargheists and hexwraiths/black knights in my 1000 points?
Finally I'll need a general to lead these monstrosities. My initial thought was to get the Vlad model and run him as a counts as Vampire hero but thought of including a Wight King to lead those skeletons into battle?
Thoughts and advice welcome.
