a few months ago i wrote a piece of fiction for the black library forums, and now after playing alot of mordheim orks and warhammer quest ive decided to go back to large scale battles of warhammer and i want to create an army based around this general idea, here goes:
Shandor Blackdove was a man of many feats, standing 7 feet tall and huge broad shoulders, his great axe, shade, was feaed by all who imposed his lord of sylvia the walls of the city were safe thanks to this one hero of legends and his trusty swordsmen.
at the grand age of 67 SHandor met his end, in the deep winter, when all was thought to be peacefull, shandor and his men were summoned to repel a surprise attack from a ravenging beastmen heard the battle lasted a full day and a full night, but shandor and his warriors...greatly outnumbered fell at the hands of the beats of chaos, shandor saw every one of his men killed, before the beastlords axe severed his throat...
The tomb was dank, dust clinged to every surface and the stench of long decyed flesh and rusty armour filled the tomb, an earie voice chilled the air..
'wake up blackdove...' shandors long dormant body triched into life 'ive been waiting many years for you...ur kingdom is long gone...' raising into a sitting possistion shandor raised his hands, flesh and muscle long gone, now all that remained was cold bone, Shandor felt no remorse for his condition, no shock, in fact he felt nothing, except an uncontrollable desire to find the bearer of that voice, that chilling voice that had awoken him from the death he had honourably met. examining the room he saw many caskets, all with his family crest carved in the side, slowly the caskets opend, and out came thousands of skeletons, clad in army, with sword and shield in hand, they formed a perfect rank, with room for shandor to join, they moved out the tomb.
a man stood robed in the graveyard, and greeted the wright and his gaurd, hes face warped by the curse that is undead 'my master seeks u my friend, u and your men' he raised his arms and began to chant, the ground rumbled as he spoke the forbidden words, arms clawed from the ground followed by the sneer of thousands more skeletons, not as armed as he guard, but still ready for battle 'now we shall go, for my mater has waited thousands of years for ur aid, and he grows tired of waiting' with that he necromancer raised his arm pointin south thru the woods, all the skeletons marched onwards...shandor, filled with un natural power...followed to find his new 'master'
thats the basic plot so far, its not brill i kno, but im still writng the updated version, in case i havent made it clear Shandor is a wright lord, his swordsmen are grave guard the necromancer is in fact...a necromancer, and the skeletons at the end are just normal skeleton warriors, i have the ready, but i have no idea wot bloodline shandors new master would be, im thinking necrarch as they r the magical beings and it would take gr8 magic to raise shandor from so far away, also, im thinking that in the woods that the army of shandor will locate dire wolves and a long dead tree wench (banshee) any help would be appreciated i guess my questions are
1) wot bloodline would best suite the brief description fo the vampire, and wot direcion should i go in, in the future, all help is appreciated =]
p.s please excuse my spelling
Looks like it should be really good, I'd go with a necrarch too.
