Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hello ladies and gentlemen, I have a question to direct to you today. We were playing a 1k point game earlier and we were wondering if vampires can cast spells wilst wearing armor in the new book. we have seen no concrete information concerning this, and since these entries are abilities that grant equipment, then it would seem as if the character would be able to wear armor and cast spells at the same time (kind of like having it in his entry for armor and all the other good stuff that comes with it). and leads on this discussion?
While the book does state that he wears armour, it does not state that he may cast and wear at the same time, and with the general case being that a caster may not wear armour and cast at the same time, we had some confusion.

No, I don't have any wool.
There is no more rule that you cannot cast spells while wearing armour, so Vampires can still cast with armour.
The thing is you just can't take magical armour unless you can take mundane armour, or you have rule like Vampires do.

There isn't really anywhere to see it per se... they took the rule out, it simply isn't there. You can read the magic section of the rule book end to end and it lays no restrictions on wizards wearing armor. Most of the army books just don't let wizards buy any armor, but for those who can nothing in the main rulebook interferes with them.
Warhammer Armies: Vampire Counts page 85, under "Magic Armour":All Vampires may be given Magic Armour (including the Enchanted Shield).

Indeed, this appears to be the case, I recently asked the same question myself. Looks good for the boys with fangs.
