I have a box of Flagellants that I was about to convert into spirithost, and as I was looking at the sprues, I decided they'd make sweet Wraiths as well.
So my question is, which unit should I make them into?
As I have never used either unit, in fact not even played a game with VC yet, I am pretty open to suggestions. Currently have some vampires, tons of skeletons, grave guard, Blood Knights, wolves.
So, if you were to add either unit to this pile, which would it be and why?
How many flaggelants come in a box? Why not make both? 20 flagglents would go a long way.
The regular spirit hosts bases come with just 3 models. If you ran 4 bases, that'd be twelve flaggelants. You'd still have plenty left to give great weapons and call cairn wraiths.
Right, only 10 models, Either A) I can build 5 bases of 2x flagellants on my spirithost, or B ) I can build 10 Cairn Wraiths.
Almost as a rule I never spend points on units I can get for free. I'd make 3 bases of spirit hosts and then see use the rest for wraiths. Perhaps only build 2 bases and see if you can get some command sets from other units on sale.
I wouldn't put just two to a base for hosts... That isn't very many. 3 or 4 would be best if you made them. How about two bases of 3 hosts and 4 wraiths? It isn't a very practical number of host bases but is probably about the best you could get out of it, since 10 wraiths is crazy overkill and way too many. Then if you like the way the conversions are going you could get another box of them to make more. Either one would look pretty cool I reckon.
For the ghosts, you could use a combination of free company, flagellants and skellie parts, make them look a little like the Dead Men of Dunharrow

I think my big problem with mixing this box into both units is that then the models for my spirithost and my wraith would be too similar, I want to kind of avoid that, though like some indicated, a box of free company could be used for spirithost pretty well.
Remember that spirit hosts are the risen spirits of your slain enemy. I like to keep mine as varied as possible.
