Hi, i was just wondering what everyones opinion on Mannfred was...is he useable in 2k-2250 games as Count or acolyte and what would u recomend as the other characters?..with 3 other vamps or necros, id want to use all vamps but then the total character pnts is like 1200 ish....? it seems interesting to give him skull staff and staff of sorcery what do you normally equip him with if u do use him...Thanks
When I use him, he usually gets Skull Staff and Sceptre De Nirot. Count Manfred is awesome in certain lists, the Acolyte version is kinda...meh. Really, Manfred is a ressurection king - he lowers Invocation casts to 3+ for himself with the Skull Staff (that's the reason it's 65 points...), and will just pump out models like crazy. He's tough, but not super-tough, and isn't really all that much of a fighter. Access to the Lore of Death is sometimes useful, particularly if a LD mod would help in a certain situation. Knowing the whole of the Vampiric lore is generally more useful.
I like him, I take the Count at that point level, but it really comes down to what kind of list you're trying to play. He's a Ressurection list guy.
Mmmm this is making me think of using him for Raise Zombies/Summon Undead Horde and just building an army around Black Knights, Ghouls and Direwolves. Have the Direwolves and BKs get ready for flanking then use the summoning spells to surround your enemy with zombies... EVERYWHERE. You could field like 2~3 units of BKs, 3 (required) units of Ghouls, and then just take like 4~6 units of 5 Direwolves, then put in some other vampires with any extra points.
Yup, that's be a fun thing. Mind that he would help with tons of zombies as well as healing, but the list would be potent enough for him to do some damage.
Also, I've seen people running 600 point models in this point range, so yeah Mannfred should be good to go.
