Help!! :huh: I'm a rookie to Warhammer and I need some ideas.
I have to play a very good player that plays Sylvania Vampire Counts in a 2250 point game and I know his general is very tough. We are restricted to 690 points to our characters and the items the can take.
Any ideas on what High Elf characters and special items to take will be greatly appreciated. :rolleyes:
It all depends on what you want your character to do?
There is a thread called my killy lord at the bottom that could be some help. Otherwise, here are the 2 characters I would suggest for the task of Vampire slaying
Armour of the Gods (Can be found on the website)
Swordmaster Honour (Killing Blow!!!!)
Heavy Armour, Shield, Lance, Barded Steed
Radient Gem of Hoeth
(With this character, pick the lore of fire spell flaming sword of rhuin. With this spell you will hit on 2+ Wound on 2+ with 5 attacks at Str7 = one dead vampire)
I hope this helps

Don't even try killing the vampire lord with your prince, keep him well away. I've seen thralls cut down elf lords because they are simply too soft and usually not strong enough.
Definitely take a couple of mages for magic resistance, that will be a very important thing. The annulian crystal is good, you might consider staff of sorcery too.. That combined with the natural 1+ to dispel for HE will make stopping the grave markers very easy, and beyond that there will only be a couple of spells and probably book of arkhan. Shut down his magic and you are well on your way.
Maybe the eagle commander with reaver bow would be a nice choice, he could march block them and destroy the wolf units if needed plus generally harass the ranks, which will add up if you are able to stop most of him magic.. Make your other combat heroes maximize attacks, you want the best combat resolution possible to make the maximum amount of models crumble and skellies and zombies are fairly soft and easy to kill. Just remember Sylvanian ones (even zombies) will likely have 4+ AS due to hand weapon, shield and armour.
