Welcome to Librarium Online!
We know that sometime in 2007 the new VC book should come out. We've all seen the rumour threads, but I'm curious what people would like to see different.
Yes, the idea shamelessly comes from all those "Xmas wish list for army X" threads I've seen, but it does get me to thinking what sort of revisions people would enjoy, whether they're "reasonable" or not.
I don't play VC but i would like to see Death Knight who cost more points or have lesser good stats, and i would also like to see less people playing Blood Dragon and more playing Lamian
What I'd like to see is some better nightmares, preferably with barding, or an option of some kind. Drop the skeletal horses with ridiculous bonetails, as I'm sure a lot of people already have.
Also I'd like a more viable option for fielding a Zombie Dragon. Right now you either have to use 1 lord and 2 hero choices (and that cut's into my precious magic too much ), or get a Master Necromancer on a dragon, and I feel the Dragon is better left for combat characters.
That's it off the top of my head.
you can also use the Necromancer army list and field the dragon alone as a rare unit
I myself would like to see a new bloodline, maybe one that is like a middle east type. A Babaylonian vampire that would share those same cultural tendancies, like a mix between Egyptian and gothic European.
I would also like to see a new rule for the black coach, like if you get X amount of kills in a battle you may summon a vampire thrall of your bloodline that you paid for at the start from your BC.
And the last thing i would like to see is a new unit of some sort... maybe some new equipment but all in all thats it really.

I'm just looking forward to seeing what new models they do. The last few releases have been top notch, so they should be able to do something with the VC.
Also, something to even out the blood-lines, so that we see a greater representation of each of them. I have a mate who plays Lahmian and he is constantly whining about their lack of effectiveness. For the love of God, give them some help so that he shuts up.:wacko:
Wood Elves 2/0/1
Orcs & Goblins 0/1/0
Next Army - Tomb Kings
I think the bloodlines are fine as they are right now, but I won't open up that can of worms anymore then it already has been.
As for what I want, I think the usual for a new book. a few tweaks making poor units fieldable, and something new tossed in.
As for specifics...well the Black coach needs work. It's powerful, terror causeing, but in the end causes less damage on a charge then a gobbo coach, for more then double the cost. Also spending that huge wack of points out onlt to have it eat a dwarven bolt, or a cannon round, or a Kroxigor axe really makes me cry.
Maybe also a little work on skellies vs zombies. I don't think it would hurt to make these guys have more difference then they do already. I'm not sure how, but I'm sure a "hungers for flesh" rule for zombies, or even make the skellies quick like in Jason and the Argonaughts.
Fielding a winged nightmear or zombie dragon as a solo monster would be neat.
Not sure what they are going to be doing to bloodlines, but if they leave them in, I wouldn't mind more powers. Strigoi specificaly, as with 6 powers and 100 points, the same powers come up ALL the time.
I want some useful magic weapons. when I see what the O&G, Chaos, and Lizardmen have access too, I cry sometimes.
Lycanthropes would be a nie addition. They already exist in the old world, They are the arisen of ulric. Perhaps they could either be a new bloodline (unlikely) or a caracter option (most likely)
Some 2000 points playable special caracters that won't force the player to min/max. Mr Von Carstein is too edgy, and the everliving takes the same amount of caracter slots!
