    Thoughts on using Vilitch?

    I'm thinking about running a magic heavy list for an upcomming 3000 point tournament. And what better to accompany 3 lvl 2's and a lvl 4 on a dragon than Vilitch! He allows me to gain more power dice than usual.

    Anyway, just kind of wondering what the general consensus about Vilitch was round here.

    I quite like vlitch on the whole, he will give your enemy a BIGGG pause when casting spells.I would include him in a 3000 pts MAGIC HEAVY army yes, but id sacrifice the dragon and give the other level 4 something else to economise on the points.ur talking about 2 level 4s and 3 level2s so a dragon will just make your army more miniscule

    He is, like most special characters, broken.

    every time someone fails a spell you get those dice? Uhm, do i really need to explain how that is overpowered?

    Not to mention he's better in combat than a lot of armies combat lords...

    Vilitch is terrific against armies like Vampires. They generally throw one dice at casting spells like Invocation and it results in a lot of failed castings. With Vilitch they will have to throw 2 dice at an Invocation and that halves their casting dice.

    Has anyone contemplated how broken Vilitch may be in 8Ed? All your power dice will be in one pool that can be filtered through any caster. That means that you can have up to 12 power dice to start with to filter through him, with the possibility of more as a result of failed dispels. And, he will get a +5 to casting, possibly +6 if you have a Skull of Katam in the area.

    Thoughts?
