    The spectral form (model/effective)

    I am getting back into warhammer and i already have a 2000 point Tomb kings army from when i use to play. After dabbling with Dogs of war i have decided to dabble in necromancy again. I plan to create a small 1000 point force (with mostly skelies from Tomb kings)

    The rough idea I have been going for is a small gang/coven of minor necromancers who live in the slums of a city. they formed a gang and specialise in communing with spirits. To represent this I plan to use multiple Wraiths/hosts in my army. Somehow the coven contacted/raised the spirit of a vampire who is weak from being resurected and can only take a spectral form.

    I found a few posts but i didnt see any tactics on how to use a necromancer in a list like this. how should i equip them? which spell should they use? I plan to use 2 for fluff.

    My Vampire is going to have the spectral form power. what model does everyone use for a spectral form vampire? none of the ones on the website seem to have what i want. Are their any easy conversions/models from other mini retailers that you think look good?

    Sorry for the long post, Thanks for the help in advance everyone

    Haha, I just wrote to you back at TK Well...


    You WILL need Vampires... They are the factor that makes your army not to move at half speed but able to march. For the fluff section this idea seems pretty good, but I have not thought of ANY way to build up a list that will really work


    Your necro will not be able to have the Spectral Form, you will need a Vampire for this.

    About the model: If you want to paint an Ethereal Vampire, just ask at the Painting section on the forum for advice, there I will be able to help you. If you want to convert an Ethereal Vampire, just let your imagination FLOW, hehehehehe

    just cant get off the plastic crack for long
    Yes sorry i ment my vampire will be taking spectral form, i just accedentally typed necromancer

    I think i will take 1 vampire and 2 necromancers. my idea is that i will stick 2 squads of skelies in front with my vampire in between and my necs in the squad or behind them (which would be better?) with my ethreal units on the flanks to insure i keep them.
    I dont expect this list to be extremly competitive but i would like to win every few games

    For the vamp model i think i will be going with a model outside of GW probably from Reaper miniatures
    Reaper Miniatures :: Miniatures
    i think he looks sufficiently vamprish

    thanks for the help and please keep the advice coming!
    P.S. Check out some models from that website, they have some pretty sweet minis in 28mm
