Me and one of my buddies got into the hobby after a 10 year absence and we played our first game last night. You can see the video battle report here YouTube - BrewCityGamers's Channel. He plays the Vampire Counts and while we were playing, a red flag popped up. His general charged my marauders and only killed on one of them (I had regeneration on them). I didn't inflict any wounds on him. When it came time for Combat Result, I had him 4 to his 1. Since he is undead, he took 3 wounds. He died.
My question is: Did we do everything by the book? Is it really that easy to take out his badass general with a few ranks, standard bearer, and outnumbering him?
Assuming he didn't have a Ward Save or Regenration he could have used to take saves against the crumble then yes. Either he's inexperienced with VC and didn't realise the risk, or his general was a combat build that got seriously unlucky to only kill 1 (though even then he's taking a big risk charging a unit that has 3 static combat res anyway).
This is why you rarely see a VC general not in a unit. All it takes is a unit with a rank or two and he's boned.
2000AD's answer to all "How do VC deal with ..." questions: Forbidden Lore + 2 Power Stones.
Further answers will require more vodka.
Thanks for the reply. We knew we did it by the book, it's just kinda weird. The VC player knows what not to do now. Thanks again for the help.
A VC General should only charge if he can win, due to CR If placed on a Dragon or an Abyssal Terror, he could make some good things, but alone on foot is just madness
You two were correct to remove the model due to loos of wounds in CR
