Hey guys, I'm new to this forum but have been playing Fantasy for 3 years now. My main army is my VC, which i love and after reading pages and pages of your guys forums, i decided to join because it seemed like a solid community.
The problem of this post is Daemons of Chaos. My brother had to pick the army with hero's that can slap around Vampires like a squad of knoblars. The problem I seem to have is not with his army, but the giant flying monstrosity Bloodthirster. The only way i have found to counter this thing is stick my lord on a dragon and prey he doesnt fly and kill me. All the artifacts i take reduce his stats, as well as give me slight bonuses in saves since magic weapons are useless agenst this thing.
If any one has a better idea how to beat this thing besides coward in fear, feel free to post
The problem was discussed recently in this thread:

Unfortunately, there's not really a good answer for ya... they're a problem. :p
ive always enjoyed the Vamp with dread lance, red fury, drown of the damned and dread knight, works if he doesnt use obsidian armor if he does its less effective
KK thanks guys for responses, if anything comes up in terms of killing him i'll be sure to post it
What about something like....:
30 Grave Guard
Aura of Dark Majesty
The extra +1 for ranks banner (Endless Legion?)
Against a BT, that's sitting at a flat 8CR. The BT charges, you challenge with a champion, he loses by 4, and its another -1 for Aura. If you want you could even cast Doom and Darkness. Pray he rolls badly, but I can see this having some form of potential. Horribly expensive though.
Thx arch, that is a really good idea. When i useally stick a lord in my squads BT just challenges and wipes the floor with me with the overkill +5 rule, useally beating out my +4 rank//outnumber bonus. But with dark mas arua and the banner, that adds +5 right there and giving my lord a ward save and nightshroud and the cursed book, i think that what hurt his over kill chances and i would eaisly win combat.
Thanks a lot for your post, i honestly think this might just be how to beat him and compared to my 700pt lord on his dragon, this plan sounds solid and with 30 gg and lord with upgrades, i belive it to be the same point cost, thanks
your the best arch
Said unit will probably torunce through every unit that the Chaos Demons will send at it, if properly supported. Agreed that it is HORRIBLY expensive, and needs some form of support in the form of magical protaction - corpse carts with miasma and other such like...

Most diffently it is very costly, however ever game with BT on the table, by turn 3-4 he kills my General and as we all know, thats basically gg. If spending 600-800pts to make sure i automaticly lose, i have to say it's well worth it. And yea i agree when it comes to support, it almost seems with the mass GG unit with the general, you must have almost the rest of the army supporting this single unit as much as they can.
