Welcome to Librarium Online!
Good morning .
The new VC battalion box, is up in the advance order section .
Vampire Counts Battalion | Games Workshop
Your opinion ?
Not a big fan to be honest, for the simple reason of the presense of zombies. I mean I do understand that they are trying to draw a clear distinction between tomb kings and VC, so they cant really include skeletons in the batalion box. However I think its safe to say that 60% of VC players dont use zombies in everyday games, and instead mostly rely on big blocks of skeletons and ghouls. With new rules its possible more people will start using them due to their cost, but I dont know many who would stand it painting 50 zombies and only have them occupy 250pts of your army. At my local GW, out of a total of 5 people who play VC only one uses zombies. Everything else is good though, ghouls are a must and wolves are relly effective under 8th edition.
It's a good all-around box, and Dire Wolves are always a good buy, but I think a lot of folks will either use Ghouls or Skellies, not both. The Corpse Cart is neat, but I've been struggling to include it in my army right now.
