Welcome to Librarium Online!
Im a skeleton man, but Im wondering what the majority of VC players use. Do ye go for the massive speed bump ability of the zombie horde, or for an ever so slightly more skilled skeletons?
I, personally, enjoy the spears and the ability to have a 4+ save in hand to hand combat of me bony boys.
I my self use skeletions as my starting out units..I love them and Zombies I raise when I need to speed bump or just want to be really cool and be MASTER OF THE UNDEAD!!! but in all realtiy the skeletions are good in the fact that they can be summoned with a unit and have all the good upgrades with them. But it all comes down to what is your tactic. (Y) :shifty:
I prefer to field skeletons and summon zombies, but if point restrictions call for it, I field a single unit of 20 to 25 zombies.
Zombies so rarely get a kill, they're not much good for anything other than outnumbering and autobreaking, which I've seen them do quite effectively, quite often. But zombies with Hellish Vigor cast on them, now that's nice.
I'm big on fielding a mix, so I normally have a block of zombies and two blocks of skeletons. Really, with Army of Sylvania, the difference is slim, but it'd be boring to just have one.
I usually go for a mix as well, that seems to work well enough, then summon what I like wherever I like.
With Sylvanians I think zombies are the better option though, neither skeletons or zombies are likely to kill much in combat at all and zombies can get the same AS as skeletons so you might as well grab the cheaper option.
In general I guess it does depend on your play style, skeletons will survive longer but zombies are cheaper. Neither kill much, if anything.
I agree. But it'd be boring to see 80% of the models on a table being zombies.Originally Posted by strewart
after buying 5 boxes of skeletons, I'm thinking 2 of those boxes should have been zombies
Lol, I think that is likely.. Everyone uses zombies at some stage, even if not in large amounts.Originally Posted by Beastbrawl
If you haven't opened a couple of them then GW will swap them for zombie boxes, if you have then I guess use your bits box/green stuff/ anything else to bulk them out a bit and stick with basic weapons so you have some models to use as zombies. Or simply proxie, most opponents won't mind unless you are in a tournie or something. Or you could just buy zombies, never too many undead around . I have over 100 skeletons and still 40-50 zombies I think.
On the other hand, everyone develops a different playing style, you might find no zombies and just skeletons works well for you and you never end up wanting them anyway.
i love using zombies it suits my painting style ( messy) and they are cheap and cause fear thats the only use to be in large numbers and cause fear as nobody undead its really gonna kill much
