Welcome to Librarium Online!
as of when i seen the new ghouls i am reaaaaaaaaaaaallly thinking of doing a undead list for my first whFB but i dont just want undead
but i just dont want any undead, actually i don't think i want any undead i want to make a strigoi list(and i no theirs no more blood lines but ill model my hero and make his abiltes like the good old ghoul king) with lots of ghoul, ghouls
,Crazy bad ass vampire lord ,ghouls ,ghouls and something else that fits the strigoi profil like fell bats or dire wolves
so my question is this viable? will this tactical infexibilly be supplanted by sheer force of my vampire lord and his ghouls and ghasts
I wouldn't bring it to a tournement. The ghouls are rather bad in the new book (ie. at the moment I can't see what they are good for). Also they are now undead, as well as the dire wolves and fell bats you speak of!
Sorry for the negative input, but I really can't see it winning a decent game.

I am going to have to agree here. I really can't see what ghouls are used for in the new book. Perhaps when it is released we all might notice something, but I would wait until then.
ghouls are undead now? hmm well maybe he could do a nice varghulf/ghoul one two punch.
well not all ghouls of course just mostly ghouls and some beast like the vargulf dire wolves and bats
I had a flick through the new book and I think the new rules for ghouls aren't too bad. When you combine them with the vampire power that lets you move them before the game starts, supported with vargulf, a plague cart, a scouting vampire they should be able to hit hard and early in the game. I can see they them being very useful, just a very different role than before.
(EDIT: Hope this grammar is suitable.)

Alright, noobs! Vampires have to use proper grammar, too! (Or you can go with LO rules requiring basic things for posts like capitalization and punctuation--no NY Times format necessary, just the basics).

That said, the only new models I don't really like (besides that weird female vamp) are the ghouls. The rules would really need to compensate before I buy those hunchbacks.
A vampire with Ghoulkin, or rather several vampires with Ghoulkin each joining a unit of ghouls and you got a nice free march move before the game starts. That will take you a good bit closer and help alot with keeping the army linked with the faster elements of the list(wolves, varghulfs and fell bats).
Summon ghouls(new power) is also a good idea.
So if you do a good compromise with ranked ghouls, speed(bats and wolves) and muscle(vamps and varghulfs) you´d have an army that would work well IMO. Probably want to throw in some other goodies after ahile too. Corspse cart comes to mind although with ghouls present it be more of a Food cart
