Just to say, I'm a bit disappointed that, having got to page 36 of White Dwarf, I'm looking at my fifth and sixth full-page articles with "Sample Army Lists" written into them. I don't think this magazine has ever felt so lazy.
(That said, can't wait for the hardback Vampire Counts army book. Will be snapping that up pronto!)
I haven't bought a WD in over 10 years. Although for 6 of those years I was getting them free but.......... my point stands.
What are people thoughts on the new VC? Ethereal Cav should upset a few people. My 3k Marauder list doesn't have any magical attacks in it.......... I think that may have to change!!!
We can't win games through static combat res. At most, with Warriors, we're getting 2 ranks a standard and charging.... and there ain't much chance charging cav. So that's +3.
I'm not saying "Egads! To the hills!". I'm just realising that I personally would struggle no end against a force with a lot of Ethereal nasties in it. It does give VC's a viable unit to counter unit blenders like Warriors though..... We just need to ram Knights or Trolls down their Throats.
Fairly certain the only new thing that is Ethereal are the Hex Wraiths. Cairn wraiths, Banshees, and the Black Coach (likely be changed though) are probably going to be kicking around still to annoy people. Despite the paint job the Coven of Thrones/Mortis Engine is not ethereal. So it's unlikely to be worse than it already is, and I could use and excuse to field my knights.
Yeah I have been running Nurgle knights with banner of rage, as is a pretty common build, and if you take those bad boys you won't have to worry about ethereal nonsense.

An exalted on a disc with a cheapo biting blade is an option too.

I vote Knights to take care of them, though one must be wary of Hexwraiths - they have a nasty little ride-by move (a la Screamers of Tzeentch) that inflicts S5 hits with no armor saves. So chop 'em up in combat before they pull a drive-by on you.
The coven of thrones is etheral with a 4+ ward save. hexwraiths are going to be a pain but they are going to give dwarfs and empire all sorts of problems to their warmachines.

Maybe Empire, but not Dwarfs. One Rune on the Organ Gun and those Hexwraiths are going to melt.
