So... what sort of rumours has everyone heard about VC in the upcoming edition. I heard wind of a monster sized unit - either Werewolves or Flesh Golems.
And... this is my prediction based on GW's past tricks. I think that skeletons will be given the option of taking heavy armor, halberds, and the like again, like they were allowed to in the 5th edition VC book. Perhaps even zombies will be allowed to take equipment, ala the Sylvania list. Why do I think this? Because GW loves to tinker with units' equipment(and size) to get people to buy new miniatures. I think a new skeleton box with parts for armor and different weapons would sell like crazy.
As for zombies, they definitely need a revamping. A unit with pieces for women/child zombies would be quite creepy. The current zombies all look like male farmers. Few people use them, so they may allow a variety of weapons and even bring back the automatic lapping rules from 5th edition.
i can definitly see some new zombie modles, but heavy armer skelleton? i dont know, that would make them really good. and for crappy fighters that would make the gg oupsoleit, if thats how you spell it.
Werewolves and Minotaurs are my two most favorite "fantasy" creatures if you will. If they manage to stuff some werewolves into VC armies, then I'll be sure to own an army if not a few models.
Hopefully if they do put werewolves in, then they will also be a dogs of war choice so that I can just transplant them into my already ginormous Chaos army. That would be sweet.
Lets just hope that they don't get too "weird" with the list this time like they seem to have done with the new Orcs and Goblins list... Goblins riding spiders?? Come on GW....
i would really like to see werewolves. but mummies would be far better. simply because they would have to be str 5.
I would not like to see Mummies for the reason that they would be faaar more suited to a TK army, if ever they were to return it should be there.
Werewolves would be pretty cool, they'd be a lot like Strigoi though.
Skeletons in heavy armour would pretty much be grave guard.. Not a good idea. All (or most?) core used to have the options of heavy armour, it makes the 'special' advantages of heavy armies like dwarfs a lot less unique and special, not a good idea IMO. Most things should die easily. We don't want a whole game of space marines now do we...
Why are VC one of the only armies without a 10+ unit size for its core, its seems that, if anyone, VC would be most suited to horribly large units of shambling basic infantry, I would be very happy if they changed that. Play testing the appendix rules would be shiny too.
What?Originally Posted by The vampire Lestat
Skeletons and Zombies both are 10+ and those are the only really shambling infantry.
I cant see Ghouls or Dire wolves as horde units, it wouldnt make much sense making them 10+ neither.
Werewolves... well, the strigoi is rather opened for conversion for that part. Cant imagine they would be much different.
prince_dios: about the woman and children zombie part... you just gave me a very good idea. Hell, my banshees will be a little child akin to the ring and such horror movies.

They didnt go anywhere, Forest Goblins was old addition to the Orcs and Goblins army, they just brought them back. Is natural and there was fluff about Forest Goblins, is not a wierd choise just to mess up the list.Originally Posted by H0urg1ass

The author of Inheritance, the first installment of the new von Carstein trilogy from Black Library, has said that the new army book will be based around the novels. I assume this means largely for fluff reasons. I wish I'd made the signing at the GW store in Nashville; I'd have quizzed him more about it. Still, the only new critters I remember in the novel are ghasts, and something else that doesn't come to mind. There wasn't a werewolf to be found. I don't know if that means anything or not, but it might.
And remember wolf form is already out there for vamps.
