Hello. My friend has a vampire count army, and I was considering one of his spells.
The spell Curse of Years is a remains in play spell. the longer it remains in play the more models in a unit die off.
What happens when you cast a remains in play spell with irresistable force?
Obviously it can not be dispelled on the turn it is cast, but on future turns if you wish to dispell it, is is still considered irresistable?
So can i attempt to dispell it on the next turn? or is that unit permanantly doomed for the remainder of the game?
If that's the case, that is one extremely powerful possibility.
After the turn it's cast you roll to dispell at the base cast value of the spell.
Also remember that Remains in Play spells are ended if the caster casts another spell, so if he wants it to last forever he can't cast anything else.

Further answers will require more vodka.
Yeah, I find curse of years to be a really underwhelming spell. It just doesn't do much on the first turn and is easily dispelled after that. It seems to me that it'll almost always be worse than Gaze of Nagash or Wind of Undeath.
Against an army that only packs the base 2 power dice then maybe it could be allright, but how often do you see that?
Curse of years KILLS my Dwarf army.
Big units combined with only 2 PD to try and dispell it in my own magic phase is NOT a nice proposition.

curse of years is an amazing spell, for any blocked up units or heavy cav, i only use the gaze on small units and war machines. the curse is my favorite offensive spell,
I have to be honest, I rarely use any spells except, VanHel's Danse Macabre, Raise Dead, and Invocation of Nehek.
In fact I think the only one I've ever tried to use other than these is Gaze of Nagash.
I really need to try to build a more diverse magical army just so I can train myself some different ways to use my army.
I find I work myself into a rut with all of my armies, then I have to make some very odd lists in order to force me to use different strategies.
