    VC army out of non-VC models

    Does anyone use anything other than GW models for their VC Army? I have a couple Reaper models for characters, but after looking over the new price list I think some of the prices are a bit too high.

    I can convert some things I know, but just wondering if anyone uses anything other than GW in their army. Way I see it you can use reaper models for characters, spirit hosts, and banshee's (I use a reaper necro and Wight Lord, and they fit right in after you ditch the bases). $35 for 20 zombies/skellies is a decent price, you can use empire/bretonnian knights for Black Knights, I saw someone use chaos warriors as GG (12 for $35, better than normal GG price). You can buy Goblin wolf cav for dire wolves (10 for $35). Does anyone use anything different/cheaper? Any idea's for Ghouls, bat swarms and fell bats?

    I looked over some of the D&D miniatures but it looks like they sell them randomly like Mage Knights, and may not be to the correct scale.

    I'm looking more for a price break for someone I know who is wanting to get started and doesn't want to drop $1500 (I think that's what his cost came out to when added up on GW-Shop). Also something to keep in mind when I expand my army to 3k+ points.

    PS. I also wanted to say that converting can be very fun, and makes your army very unique. I like some of the converted pics I have seen, though I don't copy, an idea or two is nice.

    Dnd Miniatures come in random packs. But at some places you can buy them seperatly.
    I use Reaper and Rackham models for my characters, but using metal models get expensive when you need 40 zombiez and 40 skeletons (for ex).

    A guy I play with uses non-GW products for his characters--he has a halloween theme--so a pumpkin head wight lord (looks great, too)

    And a couple of cool models for a count and thrall--an undead scarecrow kinda thing and an undead gravedigger model

    One thing you've probably already thought of is Ebay. I got really lucky when I started warhammer and found a VC lot, largely unpainted or semi-painted, that I got at a steal...so keep an eye out there if you're not already.

    How can a 3000 point army cost 1500$ ? I have a 3500+ point army of dwarfs shy of a grand. Unless it's a slayer are or similar pewter model lists, it can be more than 750-900.
