As the topic asks, are there? I mean, they can't die of old age and I can see a smart Vamp blending into society and making a decent living.
So what do you say?
sounds extremly viable
any idea on which 40k army would make the best vampire counts to 40k conversions?
The first thought that popped into my head is the Slann. They were an ancient and advanced race, the greatest of all spacefaring races. They guided the development of the Eldar to become the inheritors of their achievements. It is suggested Eldar and Mankind share a common ancestor (Slann).
The Wolf time is upon us!
Rep for the Rep God! Positive for the Positive Throne!
Armies: Space Wolves, Imperial Guard, Emperors Children, Necrons, Eldar
They might be some sort of Tzeentch creature, a mutation of Humans or Eldar.
Terminator armor going critical would be like Three Mile Island only very, VERY angry, and carrying a hammer.
LO rules in a nutshell: Don't post unit costs, be polite, rep posts containing of win.
Vampires in 40k? The first thing that came to mind was the Blood Angels. They drink blood and go into the Black-Rage. It's not a blood frenzy per-se, but they do get pretty feral, tearing foes apart with their bare hands and what not.
Additionally, the Nightlords were pretty vampiric. I don't know if there are any recorded incidents of vampirism in their fluff, but they certainly seem like Vampires to me. They have tons of similar iconography to the new Vampire Counts models. Good luck finding models for them though, I think that several of them have been relegated to the classic models sections.
Finally, I'm sure that with the mutations and the likes, there could surely be vampires. If you want to base your army fluff on something of that nature, I'm sure it would be easy to incorporate it.
The easiest models to use by far would be space marines, space wolves in particular, and some of the fanged Chaos Marine heads. My personal army is not vampiric, but does feature fangs, so I made sure to use closed mouths or space-wolf mouths on any unhelmeted model.
Yup, warp Vampires had rules back in Rogue Trader.
Strong and fast, ability to alter their shape and powerful Psykers. Definitely something for the inquisition to deal with!
Haven't been mentioned in 20 years though.. so they are obviously very rare!

I currently play:
Doom Eagle Space Marines
Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids
Goff Ork Boyz(dead)
Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
Thematically.. The C'tan are already the 40k 'version' of vampires.. They're immortal, powerful, suck out people's life force to feed and they lead legions of 'undead'.
If you want more conventional vampires though, I say go for it.. mutation is rife, and I can see haemivorous mutants being fairly common.
Found a specific codex mention of a Vampire! Black Templar codex, talking about High Marshal Helbrecht, it says he was promoted to Sword Brethren after slaying a Vampire that had risen to power on Cephian VII.
