    1250 Points : Advice appreciated

    Wha Gwan,

    I am new to Warhammer Fantasy and chose Vampire Counts because they look radical and commanding an undead horde is just.... awesome. Anyway me and a friend are starting and he will most likely be getting Ogres so any additional advice on good ogre counters will also be appreciated as well as feedback on this army list in general:

    1250 points

    Heroes
    Vampire - Dark Acolyte, shield, heavy armour (136)
    Necromancer - Master of the dead (85)
    Core
    Crypt Ghouls x 20 - w/ Crypt Ghast (210)
    Crypt Ghouls x 20 - w/ Crypt Ghast (210)
    Skeleton Warriorsx 40 - w/ full command (230)
    Special
    Crypt Horrors x 3 - w/ Crypt Haunter (124)
    Grave Guard x 20 - w/ full command (250)
    Total : 1245

    Aims
    Necromancer will assist Skeletons
    Crypt ghouls will be basic damage dealers (attempt to be)
    Skeleton warriors will hold up a unit I don't want touching more valuable units
    Crypt Horrors will be front line pack-a-punchers
    Grave Guard will also be pack-a-punchers on the front

    Peace

    Edit: Cyclops eyes are zeros. For some reason it decides to put them in

    Should be alright. I played a game versus ogres at that point level not to long ago and my best performing unit was my horde of 50 skeleton warriors with spears accompanied by a vampire hero with a great weapon. Crypt ghouls will help you quite a bit. Zombies did not help me at all lol (it was an escalation league so my list was locked in for the day)

    The thing that worries me about your list is your unit of grave guard is pretty small, it would be a shame to see them get wiped out in one turn as they are your only real damage dealers.

    I would *suggest* that you drop your crypt ghasts and replace your crypt horrors with vargheists as they can do some real damage. : )

    Hope this was worth the read.

    Cheers for the reply,

    I'll make some adjustments to the list now I have a pointer what to consider

    I'm definitely putting some of those Vargheists in there to dish out some pain.

    As for the Grave guard, ill have to work on trying to increase their numbers or using another damage dealer instead

    Thanks for the feedback Petrocco +rep
