    His army is slow, so don't run down their throat and expect to win a battle of attrition.

    Use your speed, shooting, and magic to whittle his army down. Focus on one unit at a time until it is wiped out, he can't rez units that have been destroyed.

    Lots of RxBmen, Bolt Throwers, a Sorc, and some BG to anchor your line.

    yer i do, was considering the hydra but thought would be tricky to be able to use him with so many great weapons around.

    what do wight blades do? I have extreamly little idea of VC. I thought they had something like great weapons and killing blow?

    List im looking at so far is sometihng along the lines of:

    level 1 Sorceress, extra spell and extra dispell dice (get few shots off try stop the VC raising more units)

    10 crossbow men

    2 repeater bolt throwers

    5 harpies (slow enemy down get more shooting)

    Worry i ahve with this one is i have nothig for CC so could swap the bolt throwers for a hydra but would be tricky to use, and heavly cut down on my shooting effectivness. Also thinking if swapping one bolt thrower for more crossbow men might work a bit better as well? What is everyone else thinking?

    Wight Blade = KB. Hydras don't have to worry because KB doesn't affect them (too big).

    I might drop 1 RBT in favor of a small unit of BG to dispatch anything left over.
