Welcome to Librarium Online!
I need ideas here. I've always liked vampires. I've read everything from the old dracula books, to warhammer Vampire novels, to the awesome Hellsing Series. I'd like to make a Vampire army in 40k. I think the most suitable list would be the 13 Company (heavy Wulfen) since I think crazed bloodthirsty vampires would have rules similar to wulfen. The more in-control Vampires being the leaders of course.
Now here's the big question: How would you make crazy-looking Vampire guys in armor heavy enough to be power armor, or just marine-like Vampires???
I appreciate any suggestions you guys can give me.
Well you could do some Vampire Count heads from fantasy and stick them on chaos warriors or chaos marines from 40k. Although cutting off that many metal heads and green-stuffing them on would be quite annoying. Also, blood-dripping claws would be a must, and I don't have a clue what you could use for those... Wulfen arms are all hairy...
umm blood angels?
i misspell alot

copy this into your sig to halt bunny's quest for world domination!!
No... real vampires... Flesh Tearers are the only ones that have been reported to drink blood...Originally Posted by BrokenWingZ
I'm looking for the whole shabang: fangs, claws, berzerker rages, leaving nothing but bloodless-corpses in their wake... Barbaric unholy feasts... need I go on? :shifty:
You could always make a vampiric cult of Khorne worshiping Chaos SMs. I think the Inquisition would have serious issues with vampire space marines. As would some Astartes chapters... Khorne would love it though...cause that's a LOT of blood. Even Tzeentch would dig it. The whole "change" thing and all.

Speaking of which, you might be able to greenstuff claws, but again, thats very time consuming and I'm not sure what arms you would use. Or you could snip off wulfen claws at the wrists. But that would be very expensive... buying all thoe wulfen just for the claws..
I'm not into fluff that much, but CSM Night Lords make a Vampire-ish impression to me. :yes: Perhaps, for modelling take a look at their range.
Blood Angels are like vampires in a way. They like blood, flesh, etc. Heres a cool concept. An army of Blood Angels gives into the Red Thirst, they start draining their Imperial Allies, and are soon hunted by the Inquisition. Soon they're warped to Chaos and through disagreements break into little cabals. I like the idea Zenarion offered for a VC conversion I was working on, who offered the concept of a Vampire Sanguinius, an undead angel vampire and such. You could use that as a Daemon Prince. If you like the idea I have some more concepts.

If you want a vampiric look the Khorne berzerker fleshy head look twisted. It has the fangs and all. If you want clawish hands try the beast of chaos hands. They might work. I think a Khorne army would be a lot better becaue the wulfen dont drink the blood, but the Khorne lavish and take showers(lol) in the stuff.
While I appreciate all the suggestions let me just be clear:
I'm using Wulfen rules, not the wulfen themselves.
I'm looking for modelling advice.
The main things I'm looking for: heads, claws, armor, body-types, etc.
Thanks so far, keep the ideas coming! :yes:
