Just looking at the Vampire Counts FAQ.. and under "Vampiric Powers" the second question...
(Paraphrased) "How many attacks does a Vampire with Red Fury gain when auto killing? i.e. Strength 7 v chariot, Frostblade etc..."
Answer - " One for each would remaining on the slain models profile"....
So... Vamp lord with Frostblade and Red Fury could, hypothetically, drop 16 Ogres in one turn! - 4 on base attacks and then 12 more on the Red Fury bonus!
That's gotta hurt!
This is true, but rather expensive, and also on helps against very few things. Also most people who play ogres run very small units of maybe 3-4, so it's a bit of overkill, I mean it saves you running them down, but your vamp can only be in so many places at once.
Although if you give him flying, and avatar of death, he has a 20" move, and a 3+ save in combat. If you know your going against ogres and want to make a list to cater against Ogres, this is the build i think, in a single turn he can wipe a unit, then move on fast to another unit. You give ogres first turn, he will most likely move full steam ahead, and you got a first turn charge right in the middle of his army, and just start hacking. I feel like he can take a whole Ogre army on his own now, lol.
A lot of Ogre players do run the MSU (Multiple Small Unit) lists, but a guy at my club runs a BFU (Big Fraging Unit) of 15 - 25 Ogres.
This is when the build get just cruel.
The cheaper option would be Konrad von Carstein, same principle (multi-wound + red fury) but less expensive and less 'all or nothing' than the Frostblade that takes up your entire magic item alotment.
2000AD's answer to all "How do VC deal with ..." questions: Forbidden Lore + 2 Power Stones.
Further answers will require more vodka.
yeah i take Konrad , hes dirt cheap for what you get and insane (litrally! xD ) in combat
i always stick him in with my lord as a kind of "body guard"
