Im having a small battle against vampier counts soon (500pts). I always seem to lose horribly. Im concerned how i can do any hits! He will have grave guard hitting hard a vamp and loads of skeliesim guessing. How can i do anything useful with out it just been raised again!
Any help welcome!
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.
thats sound advice there, thanks! Would a unit of harpies be good to stop march?
They're always good for that, except against those wretched stunties.
Thanks for advice will see what i can fit in the small pts now!
500pts eh? Got a War Hydra?
Darks Elves 6000ptsWood Elves 500pts (WIP)
Imperial Guard 5000pts
yer i do, was considering the hydra but thought would be tricky to be able to use him with so many great weapons around.
Grave Gaurds have wight blades don't they? be weary of that.
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.
