    Hi all,

    I'd like to compare the (general) army lists of different Vampire Counts players here on LO, because composing a VC list is trickier than most armies. There are a LOT of possible themes and styles that can be combined with the different bloodlines.
    It might help me and other players build their army lists. I've already posted mine in the Army List section, but i'll repeat the updated version here for the sake of comparability (is that a word?);

    Master Necromancer, lvl 4, power familiar, 2 scrolls 320

    Necromancer, lvl 2, staff of damnation 140

    Vampire Thrall gw, flayed hauberk, wolf form 134

    Wraith, cursed book, gw 140

    19 Skellies spears, shields, fc (high elves ) 196

    20 Skellies spears, shields, fc (high elves ) 205

    5 wolves 50

    6 ghouls 48

    6 ghouls 48

    20 grave guard, shields, fc, screaming banner 330

    4 fell bats 80

    6 black knights, barding, fc, war banner 215

    banshee 90

    total 1995

    asquabbling they squandered and gambled
    till dawn did freeze their drunken dice

    I've never had success with a wraith and an army led by a master necro is far different than one led by a blood thirsty vampire. One thing that attracts people to this army is the strength of the lords. A blood dragon vampire with killing blow will take out a lot of enemy characters. The drawback is that sometimes I'd like him to be in the front rank hacking up the enemy's unit instead of dueling its character.

    I do like your banshee. She really can hammer at low leadership units, or just draw away enemy fire while your infantry blocks advance ever so slowly.

    I never play 2000 points, only 3000. So instead of making a list I'll just give my character combinations for my 3000 point Sylvanian list.

    Von Carstein Vampire Lord, level 3, general, great weapon, earth bind, wolf lord, black periapt, crown of the damned, summon wolves

    Von Carstein Vampire Count, level 2, 2 weapons, earth bind, summon wolves, book of arkhan, spectral attendants

    Von Carstein Vampire Thrall, great weapon, heavy armour, shield, summon wolves, earth bind

    Von Carstein Vampire Thrall, great weapon, heavy armour, shield, summon wolves, earth bind

    Wight lord, bsb, heavy armour, banner of the barrows

    Where's your magic protection? The characters' killing power is awesome though

    They all have magic resistance, spectral attendants helps, the black periapt usually gives an extra dispel dice, and one of my units has the drakenhof banner.

    This seems to work well enough for stopping enemy magic, in the last battle I had I regularly finished the enemies magic phase with several dispel dice left even though my opponent went magic heavy and had 10 power dice or something.

    The book of arkhan is 25 points saves you 15 . Look out for magic and shooting though. 30 grave guard are a perfect stone thrower target, and you havent got any screeners to negate bolt throwers/jezzails and so on. 4 dice/ no scroll is not that reliable. Other than that a good list, no cheese, and some fun stuff like a badass count and 30 wights with wightlord and the banner .

    right I forgot he had a scroll too :lol:
    although that was for a HE. that I really kicked his ass since I managed to get my wolves to take out his bolt throwers on the first turn
    march 18 and the irresistible danhels macabre
    and after that he couldn't do much about my wights
    I somehow survived the magic he got a flames of phinix on my GG and hit 18!! but somehow I managed to save 17 and next turn dispel

    This is my most common list. This army is from Moussillion (bretonnia).

    Unnamed2000 Pts - Vampire Counts Army

    Innocence Lost
    Quickblood
    Sword of Striking
    Beguile

    1 Nightmare

    6 Black Knights @ 240 Pts
    Barding; Lance; Heavy Armour; Shield; Standard; Musician
    War Banner

    1 Hell Knight

    7 Nightmare

    1 Wight Lord @ 128 Pts
    Barding; Heavy Armour; Shield
    Sword of the Kings
    Casket of Ages

    1 Nightmare

    Banner of the Barrows

    1 Hell Knight

    7 Nightmare

    1 Necromancer @ 162 Pts
    Barding; Magic Level 2; Necromancy
    Rod of Flaming Death

    1 Nightmare

    1 Necromancer @ 162 Pts

    Book of Arkhan
    Dispel Scroll

    1 Nightmare

    4 Black Knights @ 165 Pts
    Barding; Lance; Heavy Armour; Shield; Standard; Musician

    1 Hell Knight

    5 Nightmare

    3 Spirit Hosts @ 195 Pts

    5 Dire Wolves @ 50 Pts
    5 Dire Wolves @ 50 Pts
    5 Dire Wolves @ 50 Pts

    1 Banshee @ 90 Pts
    1 Banshee @ 90 Pts

    Casting Pool: 8

    Dispel Pool: 5

    Models in Army: 43

    Total Army Cost: 1995

    Every unit in this army has a minimum movement of 6. And with help form some magic (vanhelse) I own the movement fase and so i win the game just by flanking/rear charging everything.

    Very powerful list if you can get your army in one piece to the other end of the table.
    I've seen a lot of players use units of 12 black knights strong. Ever thought of that? You would then outnumber the enemy and have a rank, as well as dish out more damage. However the units will be more easily shot and cost a lot more. It is a bit powerplay, but it is worth consideration I think.
