Now that the zombie pirate rules are out, I'm curious if any VC players are tempted to use them as part of their armies. I've got my opinions, but I'd rather here other peoples' first. Any thoughts?
The question is will they be availble to a normal VC army? The Vampire Coast may have specfific rules or they maybe a new DoW unit, who knows!! Ok the possibility is more they're a special unit for VCs, but it should be Von Carsteins only (Vampire Coast was created by a one Harkon Von Carstien who after killing and drinking all the crew of a ship he had hidden aboard landed in Lustria).
Yeah, they're available, but as a rare choice. :eek:
That seems like a lot for zombies, even with slightly (very slightly) better statistics.
It does make most sense for them to be in Von Carstein armies. You know, I wonder if Harkon's special rule will be written up, but then again, there are already so many Von Carstein special characters out there. It'd be overkill.
Where can I find the stats of these guys
I haven't seen the stats yet so I guess I can't really judge...
I wasn't overly impressed with the models though, they seemed a bit bland. If there is a new list in the Lustria book which includes the pirates I might check it out and see if it is any good, as an extra unit to my army only if they are only slightly better zombies in a rare slot I don't see a lot of point.. That is, of course, if Sylvanians will even have them as an option.

Yeah, I didn't think the models were that outstanding either. It wouldn't take too much conversion to concoct some pirate zombies in the first place.Originally Posted by strewart
Personally, I doubt that zombie pirates will ever the see the light of day in my army list.
Actually, Luthor Harkon wasn't the first vampire on the coast, or its founder:
I'm going to use the Zombies in my DoW army based around Pirates Of The Caribbean.(Duelists as crewman, Wizards with Death Lore, Cannon as Ship's Cannon, Pistols and Additional Handweapons galore...)

Yeah, I've seen the cannibals of the coast before. Pretty clever, and really nice conversion work. I like your idea too. It should be a pretty interesting list, and a nice fear causing unit should really add some punch.Originally Posted by Revlid
