This is probably a stupid question but anyway,
I'm new and I like the look of vampires and i have read a few battle reports 2 from white dwarf 1 on youtube and the vampires got 1 draw and 2 losses.
Is anyone able to explain this, is it fluke or are the vampires not a very good army or what?
To tired to write...look this...
The Warhammer Forum • View topic - True fans of Buffed armies, how's it going?
If i'm a priest, i'm not a saint.
Vampires are a good army. I played them in their last incarnation and for a bit when the new book came out. I'm getting back into them now that my LM army is mostly done.
Like with most armies though, even top tier armies can fail if the person playing them doesn't have a firm grasp of tactics. Also, as with other armies, there are some builds that are more effective than others.
To reiterate, yes vampires are good, and yes they are a top tier army. They are also very forgiving of new players.

Thank you both for the replies,
the reason i ask is that i want to play something forgiving and looks cool but i have read about their crumble rule (or whatever its called), high points cost and most of their core troops having a bad statline.
Can i ask how they are forgiving?
They are a little expensive for their stat line, but that's because everything comes with Fear and Immune to Psychology as standard. To get round the poor statline of core choices (though I consider Ghouls to be average) most people fall in to 1 of 2 camps:
- Focus on elite troops to do damange (Grave Guard, Knights)
- Use characters and magic to augment core choices.
