    What do you think of the Army of Sylvania?

    I am Necrarch Player, but after reading the Army List for the Army of Sylvania it is awsome. But, what do some of you other VC players think of the list expecially the strength and weakness of this list? I dont like the fact they take away the necromancers from the heroes choices.

    Roll over to the Tactics forum and check out the Army of Sylvania tactica that Strewart put up. It's a very thorough tactica and he includes a bit about the advantages and disadvantages.

    Here's a link to it.

    The army is a good one and worth investing in. Everyone who plays it raves about it.

    Oh yes, it is great. I should know, I wrote the said tactica.

    The lack of necromancers really isn't a problem if you play it properly and avoid battles between 1001 and 1999 points. 1000 or under is fine, 2000 or over is fantastic. Especially when you reach 3k or 4k.

    I wouldn't play VC any other way now, though I would still like to try ghouls sometime... Sylvanians rock!

    Yep, and one nice thing about Sylvania is that they really play "Vampire Counts" instead of "Necromancer Lords", as strewart has once said
    Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
    NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
    Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
    Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD

    Hey, not only do people read what I write they also remember! Its been ages since I've said that.


    Grave markers and earth bind help make up for the lack of necromancers, as does spectral attendants. Any more specific questions, just ask. There are a few people around here who know a fair bit about Sylvanians so you should be able to get answers easily.

    well iv just Changed my BD army to Sylvanian, im going to be getting woodelfs when they come out though, but im still a loyal Vamp!!

    I think the Sylvanian list has the potential to be FAST, with Aura of dark majesty, your count in a unit of Templars, flanked by 10 wolvs either side, they are Speedy.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the Army of Sylvania, but there are some situations where the army is pretty much nullified. They are my main force, but I would have to say while possibly more powerful, they are less reliable then the traditional VC force. With all the praise here, you'd think that Sylvania was the only option.

    Well yeah i have to agree with you there, but they still pack one hell of a punch, im geting a laminan now though, because if i personaly theme my army 9not like the lists in the back) i can more or less make the forces interchangeable, it will be totaly legal though because im just picking the units i want, not altering the army list at all.

    Hmm, not sure how much info we're allowed to give, but this should be vague enough, I hope. . . Wolf Lord gives a Von Carstein thrall, count, or lord the same movement as a dire wolf. As for how much movement, check the VC codex. It's all explained there.

    I don't understand what you mean about a "non-magic vampire" though. If you mean a thrall, yes, a thrall can take that bloodline power.
