for 2000 points, my lord looks like this-
+Sword of Striking
+Ring of the Night
i'd take the Ring of Night over The Gem of Blood any day.
OK, you said 3 attacks, so i'm guessing you use a thrall. so The gem of Blood on a roll of 1, means he dies, not good.
I go a bit simpler.
sword of battle
If attacks get past his toughness and his (possibly modified) armor save, then I will devote all my next IoN's until he's fully healed. That way I don't spend points on a talisman.
Six attacks at Str 5 with rerollable hits is nothing to sneer at. And a 2+ save will typically only modify to a 4+. If there are great weapons rolling around, I just avoid them.
To be honest, I got a bit bored playing Blood Dragons. I think it's because I began to prefer the bloodline powers that effected the battlefield more directly, and not just the character's combat abilities alone. BD powers effect just him and whoever he's fighting, and sure, that can be a really important fight. But if a Necrarch can get +d3 models to every IoN, for at least 9 additional models a game (probably more), then that's a big deal that can effect the whole landscape of the battlefield. Or if a Von Carstein can extend his march range 6" in both directions, for a net of 12", that's huge for positioning.
I'm taking to Strigoi when I want combat. It produces a very different style of fighting character, which is cool.
Who knows? Maybe I'll end up back in the arms of the blood dragons some day soon. :p
My thrall looks like this:
Blood Dragon Thrall
The Flayed Hauberk
Strength of Steel
Additional Hand Weapon
(4 Ws8 St6 attacks on the charge)
My Count is this:
Blood Dragon Count Lv2
Crown of the Damned
Additional Hand Weapon
This way he can choose between 5 or 6 attacks with a 2+ or 4+ armour save
New LOChat functions now avaliable.

For thrall i go
Flayed Hauberk, additional hand weapon and strength of steel.
crown of damned
He has 2+ armour save vs ranged attks and can use it in combat too, he has 6 strength7/5 attks rerollable, and has a healthy 4+ ward for protection
If i mount him on winged stuff, I give me the watcha call... the thing that protects from ranged attks. and take away enchanted shiled and slap on strength of shield.
Against elves I scrap great weapon and take 2 hnd weapons. VERY EFFECTIVE when on mount. 7 strength 6 attks rerollable and the winged nightmare's profile too == dead elves.
charge him at any lone lord riding on great eagle and that lord is indeed a pile of feathers.
full plate mail, enchanted shield, Ring of the Night, Red fury, Heart Piercing, lvl 2 wiz
Rides a Winged Nightmare and has a Lance
This way I get 1+ As 5+ Ws
5 S7 reroll attacks + the winged nightmare (on charge)
(Note that he dont leave the army before 2 or 3 round)
For my thrall:
lance, enchanted shield, Heavy armour, Red fury
Rides a Barded Nightmare.
On charge 4 st 7 attacks + Nightmare.
How do you calculate a 1+ AS?Originally Posted by SpiritKnight
The full plate makes him 4+, the enchanted shield makes him 2+. There is no cavalry bonus to AS in this case. ANd there's no hw/shield bonus as he is using magic armor and is not on foot.
So u dont get mount bonus for winged nightmare?
Ok sry bout that
nonono, u guys u got it all wrong. now listen to the master kiddies:Red Fury, Master Strike, Strength of Steel, Great Weapon, Full Plated Armour, Wristbands of Black Gold.
This means for all of you who are too lazy to get your codices; 6 S7 Attks with re-rolls and Killing Blow, a 4+armour save, and a 3+ ward save against ranged attks, magic missiles, and even warmachines! This man right here with a grave guard unit ripped apart two squads of stormvermin and 3 Eshin Assassins, That, ladies and gentlemen, is how its done.
P.S go ahead, try and beat it, i dare you..........
