Welcome to Librarium Online and welcome to Vampire Counts!
Vampire counts rely on their general so it's a must to give him protection, if he dies things tend to go bad so do your best to keep him alive. Fortunately vampires are one of the best characters in the game and can be customized to be great fighters, wizards or a mix of both.
One a the armies greatest strengths is that everything causes fear. This means what appear to be weak troops have a great advantage over the enemy as there is a control of what can charge you. If you win a combat by 1 point you are still highly likely to break the enemy because of fear.
The best thing to do is decide on what type of army you want to do and post the list in the list section and from there you will get advice. There are quite a few ways to play VC, just remember to protect your general and use fear to your advantage.
Playing against Dwarves can be tricky, you just need to keep an eye out for a lord with hammerers as they can be really tough, and try to take out their warmachines quickly as they can be easy VP's.
The main thing to worry about with Empire is the infamous steam tank though just put a few wounds on it and it can become pretty useless. Flagellents can also be a pain as they are unbreakable and good against our core infantry so try to avoid them unless you can kill them quickly.
Skaven have alot of very destructive weapons though they have low leadership once you take away their ranks. They can also have a strong magic phase so be sure to take some good magic defence.
BEN DIESEL FTW!!!
thanks for the advice il post in the list section soon
i know that the skaven player is very found of stealth so i wont have to worry about clan Skryre stuff too much espically at first while he plays about with mostly Eshin units. all four have us have agreed to go for armies that are more fluffy and not at all cheesey
