Welcome to Librarium Online!
Well I have decided to start collecting Warhammer Fantasy. I have been doing quite a lot of research over the past couple of weeks and I have narrowed it down to Lizardmen or Vampire Counts.
Every time I think I have come to a decision I think further into my decision and become stuck between the two.
If someone could post up in detail the pros and cons of these armies, also some brief tactics they use I would appreciate it very much.
Hello to the community too =]
Hi Ryan, good choices. As a long time VC player, I fought against LM too many times to count. I believe there is a new LM book out so I'd have to read that first to give you my educated opinion. The old LM was very powerful with both great melee units and powerful mages. And the entire army has Cold Blooded special rule which made it resilent to combate resulotions. However the new VC alows an army with the posibility of wining a battle with more guys then you started with. And vampired are both above average fighters and mages to start. Even though I am sad they got rid of the family line special rules, now the vampires are much more customizable. You can spend 100 points on a hero level character, I don't think any other army can do that. Also with VC you'll never have a large unit getting runned down if they break in combat.
I can go on about this, but the main thing is which army interest you more, an army of one man aka vampire(the rest he summoned)or a bunch of smart lizards lol.
Personaly when I chose VC many years ago, I went to a local shop wiht a bunch of friends who were already colecting warhammer, so it was easy for me as I chose an army that was different from everyone eles. So consider who you'll be playing with.
And if you're into the models as much as the game then I'm VC all the way (there is bias but you wanted opinions)
