I was curious about Blood Knights. As they're vampires, do they each count as a first level wizard? I am intending on running a very magic heavy army and any extra power dice would help.
If not, what are some other good ways to top up on power dice? Initially we'll be playing 1000 point games before proceeding on to 1500 and 2000.
Also, after reading up on the hand-weapon/spear debate.. I am going to have to snap all of my spear arms off.. crap. >.<
Thanks in advance,
What do you mean about the hand weapon spear debate? b4 you go snapping models. if you mean on skeletons, can i just say you dont replace your hand weapon, you give them an EXTRA spear to use. this means you can choose at the begining of combat which weapon they will be using, spear or hand weapon.
No spear may be cheaper but you can take a small unit of skeletons and soon raise them up.
Also i can sugest to top up on dice you just have all your vamps as level 2s. i normaly run all mine with avatar as well, seems safer in samll games to have more spells that too many dice.
black periapt will get you a dicce over in each round aswell.
taking the bloodline power givving you an extra 2 dice is good but only if you intend on having a raise bot in which case you also give him either lord of dead/ghouls for +1 to his casting.
Also corpse carts are great in magicy lists. each one comes with a bound spell which effects all units in a certain range, and if you take a load stone they add 1 to your raising score on a dice to any unit within 6". should you want to go deffensive, bale fire will minus 1 from all enemy casting within 24".
Death knights in anything under 2000pts i think may be a bit of a strugle as in 1000pts just 4 of them will take up nearly a quarter of your points, and then you still have characters and any unit upgrades to worry about.
Under the Vampire rule, it is explaiend that character models with the Vampire rule count as X level wizards...so Varghulfs, Black Coaches and Blood Knights are not wizards and do not count to the winds of magic etc (imagine if they did!! a VC army would have HOW many dispel dice, even if we disregard the power dice????)
