Im starting my first warhammer fantasy army (im kind of a beginner still) and i just CANT decide between Vampire counts and Lizardmen.
i have went through lots of the whfb codexs'and this is why i dint whant to play the armies ( il write below) and i played many games using models from other stuff.
Bretonia- they were to0 basic just charge up the middle and break the enemy in first round of combat a little boring to play because nothing special happens and knight die very slowly. My oponnents were quit bored playing against brretonnia.
High elves- too expensive to make any sort of big army i didn't like the low model count and the easy to kill units because of toughness 3 and bad armour saves. BUT i like the destructive magic.
Wood elves- The models lookgreat but i didnt whant to use the army because it didnt realy have many ranked troops, to much running away tactitcs and trying to double or thriple charge my apponent just to win combat.
SO i need some help.
I want the army to be fun and exiting to play also so my opponent has fun playing against me. Also i'd want the army to not always be predictable.
SO in YOUR own OPINION i would like to know
which army is more fun to play with and which one is more exiting?
which of the two is more fun to play against?
which one is more rewarding?
Lizzies are getting redone next year (March or so as rumors go) so I would hold off on them beyond picking up some Saurus and Skinks.
Vamps have the potential to be very powerful, borderline broken, and your typical VC list is very predictable. Invocation spam, super units like Grave Guard or Blood Knights, and lots of Vampires. The army is also very flexible, with a big selection of magic items and Vampire powers to customize your characters. You've got a lot of options so you can play a fun game and win without resorting to the nasty stuff.
I find Lizzies to be more interesting than VCs, mostly because I like the Aztec dinosaur ancient thing more than dead things. If I were to pick I'd go Lizzies, but that's just ==Me==.

I have both armies, and its all about what you feel like painting-- undead are obvious what style ; the lizardmen have a cool "stone-age" or aztec style going on; so its just about what you want to play
both armies are tremendous fun
lizardmen are good guys if that helps the choice.
do you know from any rumors if lizardmen are going to have their own magic lore because tht would make them more fun i supose
