    another post about bloodline questions

    some of you might have read a post i had about my idea's on converting a werewolf to represent a strigoi. because of base issues i have decided to drop the idea and do it later purely for fun.

    BUT that means that i dont have to stick to strigoi as a bloodline now. so i got to thinking about what bloodlines i would like to play as and so far i have narrowed it down...

    i dont want to play lahmians. i like there rules...but for some reason, i dont want to play as them.... meh

    i dont want to play blood dragons simply because a whole lot of people do, and i want to play a bloodline that people haven't come to expect to see when someone says "oh i play vampire counts". (no offense to blood dragon players there is a reason everyone plays them)

    necrarch's are good, but i figure if i want magic, i'll just take necromancers. and i would like my vampires to be really good at combat.(even though necrarchs are still awsome in combat, there not as good or as focused as other bloodines)

    i like von carsteins because there the jack of all trades in terms of bloodlines. there more focused on being the general then other bloodlines but apart from that, they can be good at combat and/or magic. so i am leaning this way alot more.

    and at last strigoi. i like them alot, especialy the fluff behind them. but i think they get boreing as they cant choose much in the way of customiseation.


    SO... can you guys advise me on this? i am pretty much looking mainly at von carsteins and strigoi.... what should i do?

    WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!!

    Well... They bloodlines aren't so different in how the main force is build. (you may want more ghouls for a Strigoi) Mostly they are the same outlay unless you play armies from the back of the book... My advice is to try it out, see what you like, and maybe buy both bloodlines... we are only talking about 2 characters more then else (2 strigoi and 2 Von Carsteins).

    If your struggling to to choose a bloodline why not go for a necromancer army? the armylist one the back on armybook is nice you get alot of discounts on charactera and all your units to might be worth having a look at least.

    i thought about that... but i like vampires to much to give them a miss. they are some of the most powerful characters in the game. there just too cool although a necromancer army would also be good.

    thanks for the contribution
