Welcome to Librarium Online!
What happened to the benefits VC Houses granted to their army?
We used to pay to assign the entire army a bloodline, and pay get bonuses for it. Now, with the new system, you are allowed to take Blood Line powers, like you would take magic items. Each character is allowed the standard value of magic items, and then gets to take an additional allotment of powers.
The most powerful thing about the powers is that they are kept separate from our magic item alotment, so a Lord can have 100pts of items, and 100pts of powers. Additionally, you can "mix-and-match" the powers together in whatever combination you see fit. This can let us customize our characters to do whatever we want, and since the bloodlines are gone, we can include Casters right next to our Fighters.
All the old powers still exist- we just also gained a few new ones, and it became less restrictive. You could still make a Blood Dragon vampire, but you could also make him an adept caster.
Ah, thanks for the info
Yes but WS MAX blood dragon and I MAX lamia vampire lords/lady will surly be missed

Yeah like armies using 10 units of 7 dire wolves with no skeletons, supported by knights and Vampires.
*tears up* I will miss my old army, darn you GW and forcing me to take Skeletons, ruining Necromancers, making Vampires too easy to kit out for super powerful characters while removing my initiative based additions, making the army no longer a commonly losing, low end, army that only a handful of people really played, and all in all ruining the entire experience of the army for me and forcing me over to Bretonnians.

i do miss lord level necromancers, i love the undead armies but i do not want to have a fighty lord. tis my only real gripe about this book is it forces me to pay for a fighty lord statline on a caster. i miss the lvl 4 necromancer with wristbands of black gold hidden in a unit of skirmishing t4 alive ghouls.
