Ok so i have been trying a lot of things in 2k and 2250 to see what on earth works for me so i have made what i hope is to be a final etc tourney list, any comments welcome tourney is in 3 days.
Lord,Level,inf.hatred,forbiden lore,raise ghouls,sword of might,crown of the damned,flayed hauberk. 405
1 necro with IoN and Vanhels and the book 105
1 Vamp, inf.Hatred,avatar,scroll, Lychni 180
1 Vamp, BSB,dread knight,summon creatures,drakkenhoff 290
10 ghouls,ghast 88
10 ghouls,ghast 88
9 wolves 72
19 skellies,fc,war banner 197
3 bats 60
2 host 130
2 host 130
1 varghulf 175
5 B.Knights,banner of strigos 330
Now the explaining, BSB is a vamp simply cause he can raise more bats and fallen knights to actually make a use of his 1 PD and force enemies to roll or see more bats.
Necro is there obviously to give 2 dance (3 if my lord chooses our lore) and force the enemy to hold some dice or get stripped from the start.
The Hero vamp is there to support any core unit (like the wolves or ghouls) in combat and hunt together with varghulf war machines and silly lonely wizards from round 2.
My lord is my biggest problem, he is stupid.But with no other decent ward in the book and the need to stay alive couldnt find something better,he has nice str with rerolls to help the combat with the +6 skellies hes joining.Hes lore probably death to deal more dmg and make some terror causing bats! The lords plan is to raise ghouls to a decent number (15-20) if they dont get shot down to pices from the start.
2 units of host to flank and help ghouls,skellies and knights(not that they need any help) or even block other units from charging.
My Blood Knights, tottally the only unit in the vamp army that knows how to deal damage and pain, i gave them the strigoi banner cause i love hatred and the fact that u re-roll so many dice that make your opponent cry, and offcource they have regen.
The only thing i want/think to change is the 2 ghasts and give periapt to the hero vamp, any other suggestions?
yeah flag of blood keep is kinda overkill and really not needed. regen is alwyas better than a ward save unless your facing shooting flaming attacks.
Also with banner of strigos remember that u can cast vanhels on the unit to give them re rolls anyway. A better option IMO would be the banner of the dead legion as it allows them to auto break stubborn units and the like on the charge. Now that will make your opponent cry!
Also spirit hosts are 3-10 in the army book so you cant take 2 units of 2. Spirit hosts are more of a tarpit than an offensive unit and cant really offer "support" as such. I would personnaly drop the spirit hosts and get a vaghulf or 5 wraiths as these units will support your blood knights much more effectively which i am guessing are the lynchpin of your army. Also id try and get a Dispel scroll in there as if your opponent gets "rule of burning iron" then you may lose your entire unit of blood knights in 1 turn... now its your turn to cry! other than that it looks like a pretty solid list
