Welcome to Librarium Online!
One of the units I just haven't really tried out yet is Blood Knights... not entirely sure about this unit, and normally run the wraiths / vargulf double team... but figured I might as well give them a try - would this list give them a fair run? Comments / recommendations greatly appreciated....
Vampire Lord: Level 3 upgrade, summon ghouls, master of the black arts, dark acolyte, book of arkhan, helm of commandment, nightshroud (in 10 ghoul bunker)
Vampire thrall: Dread Knight, walking death, blood drinker
(runs with the blood knights)
Wight King: BSB Flayed Hauberk, Sword of Kings
(goes with the Grave guard)
12 ghouls (2x6)
12 ghouls (2x6)
10 ghoul bunker
Corpse cart with balefire
6 dire wolves (AKA the screen)
17 Grave Guard with great weapons, full command and banner of the barrows
4 blood knights, full command with the royal standard of strigos
casting pool: 9 Dispel pool:5 total points 1999
.... my other alternative would be to exchange the Grave guard for a unit of black knights (and have the wight king mounted) and add some ghouls with the spare points... not sure which would be the better build... big tourney coming up in April and wanted to test out the Blood Knights option before deciding what would be the best list to bring to the event....
I dont think BSB bearers are allowed any magic items. Also I recommend the blood keep banner because your enemy will most likely either aim his ranged attacks at your general or the blood knights.
As long as the BSB has spent no points on a magic banner he may take his maximum amount of points
Had originally considered the banner of blood keep, but it's real expensive on an already real expensive unit... couldn't seem to shave the points any further....
I run a very similar list and these are differences
skull staff instead of nightshroud and book of akhan
give the bsb the drakkenhoff bannner
a necro with a scroll and the periapt
take inf hate instead of walking death
all my units are rather small
10ghouls with champ
no corpse cart
2x5 dire wolves
champ + std
3 fell bats
I played many games with blood knights and they work best with no mus/champ but with the flag of the blood keep
see what you think of it
