Welcome to Librarium Online!
here's my current 2k list that I'm looking at for a local tourney... comments and recommendations greatly appreciated!
Vamp lord: Blood drinker, Walach's bloody Hauberk, Dread Knight, Red Fury, Infinite Hatred
Wight King, Barded skeletal steed, sword of kings (goes with BK)
Necromancer: ION, Vanhel's danse, Corpse Cart, book of arkhan (goes in 10 ghoul bunker)
Vampire: spectral form, BSB (goes with cairn wraiths)
5 Dire Wolves
5 Dire Wolves
10 ghouls (necro here)
16 ghouls (vamp lord here)
5 Black Knights: Standard, barding, Royal standard of Strigos (WK here)
3 Fell bats
3 cairn wraiths, 1 banshee (BSB goes here for marching, +1 CR, and US5)
6 PD + 2 bound, 5 DD, 1996 points
you also really need to either bulk up those ghouls, and/or get the summon ghouls power onto your vamp lord... any shooty army is going to own those small units and you simply won't be able to repair them fast enough to keep them going...
the lord could also be alot more dangerous... dreadlance really is the only way to go for a hitty lord! (auto-hitting is simply nasty!) look for something like the crown of damnation or staff of damnation or perhaps the accursed armour + periapt to round out his magical equipment... (accursed armour makes the combo really dirty as the dreadlance by-passes the worst of the armour's side effects and you've got CC's for ASF anyways!)
perhaps lose the dire wolves to afford more of the upgrades on your characters? simply put, our characters tend to really make the bulk of the army work... aside from our rare units + wights, the rest of our units really need the vampires to buff them up to make them solid fighters...
hope this helps,
Found out some of my opponents will include Tzeentch demons with a greater demon, Dark elves, skaven, woodelves, high elves and warriors...
As much as I love the wraiths, I'm not so sure if they'll last too long...
So keeping with the aggressive style, would this be an improvement?
(if not I'll probably stick to my original list)
vampire lord: blood drinker, walach's bloody hauberk, black periapt, infinite hatred, red fury, dread knight, level three upgrade
Wight King: BSB, skeletal steed, sword of kings, enchanted shield
Vampire: Balefire spike, book of arkhan, dread knight, walking death
5 dire wolves
5 dire wolves
5 black knights: musician, standard bearer, Royal standard of strigos (wk goes here)
3 fell bats
4 blood knights: musician, standard bearer, Flag of the blood keep (both vamp lord and other vamp go here)
2000 points on the nose
6 PD + 1 bound + periapt
- as an added bonus, since I didn't use the helm, drakenhof or dreadlance I might not even take a huge comp hit.... well maybe....
