Hey, I got the new book yesterday (also played in a tournament with the new book and did ok), and after reading it over I think I came up with a list. Obviously it is not perfect but I would like to here what people think of it.
Vampire Lord with...
Vampire Powers: Fear Incarnate, Aura of Dark Majesty, and Red Fury
Magic Items: Sword of Swift Slaying, Enchanted Shield, and Talisman of Preservation
Mundane Items: Heavy Armour
- Level 4
- Level 2
5 "Heroic" Cairn Wraiths xxx
1 "Heroic" Banshee xx
- Full command
- Screaming Banner
- Banner and Standard
20 Ghouls: xxx
24 Grave Guard
- Banner of the Barrows
1 Spirit Host: xx
1 Spirit Host: xx
1 Varghulf: xxx
Grand Total: 2,498
The idea is for the Vampire Lord and all his ethereal buddies to join the skeletons, with his Vampire Powers and Magic Items in the unit they should be weapon skill 1. The Necromancer's join the Zombies for a bunker (while buffing them up to a reasonable number) against being shot at, whilst the faster/flying/both elements of the army attack war machines and archers/gunners/etc. The ghouls and Grave Guard are there so I have 2 other reasonable fighty units. The Spirit Hosts (though are kinda fast) are used to release fanatics, and hold up small units that can't hurt them.
I'd like to hear what people think of the list (yes I know making an ethereal wall isn't original, but it is fun, well for me, for my opponents it's just painful).
Banshees are 20 points cheaper if they're rare. Just saying.
True the rare banshee is cheaper on her own (75 v.s. 95). But to get the rare bansee you need 3 wraiths, with the banshee upgrade that's 175 point, and I can't split them up or but them into units.
Ok. I just think those carin wraiths and banshee would be better off a squad of 3 and 3 or something.....But hey ur list try it out see how it does ;p
Can you really still have a magical weapon and a magical shield together? I don't really remember
