Well, some people might not like the new models, but i love the new Blood Knights, especially after seeing their nice statline. You can see for yourself n the GW site, it is in the Vampire Counts preview.:happy:

I can't see the stat line, it is too blurry on the picture... any idea of better software or what else I can do?

OH SNAP I AM STUPID ----------------------------------
Thought I was supposed to look at the pictures, while it stood in plain text on the last page... the question would be nice anyway, Send me a PM if you know how to make it more clear, so we can scout out the points for mannfred and so on.

It is hard to make out, but it looks like 106. I am sure they made it hard to read on purpose.

As for making it more clear, this isn't CSI, in real life poor quality images can't be "improved" nearly enough.

I thought it was 106pts, and the necromancer 55pts... but 106 seems like an odd value when it is a special characters base-cost...

Wow. After looking at BKs, they look impressive. They truly are the "best knights in the Old World".

Seriously they give Bretonnian Knights a run for their money. They are on par with Grail Knights.

Hopefully they'll cost the same as well, and take up a rare slot. Seeing many units of these guys on the battlefield would be scary

Tekore: They are frenzied, and can't get the pray ward save so they do have a downside.

Where Blood knights are much better than Grail knights is when not charging, the str 5 and 3 attacks (inc frenzy) means that they can afford to not break on the charge, or even be charged by a lot of things.
Also having fear and the option to take a banner that doubles US means I expect to see a lot of US 20/24 Fear Causing Blood Knight units running about thrashing stubborn units.

That banner that doubles unit strength is nice, but I think people will be taking the banner that gives the entire unit a 4+ regeneration save more often.

Also, they'll ALL be able to issue and accept challenges (just like grail knights). But they are a rare choice, and will more than likely be a 0-1 unit. Either way, the HIGH price of each model will probably limit most people to one, small unit anyway.

They are definitely one of the best knight unit in the game.. or even one of the best looking model... or THE most expensive knight unit (moneywise) in the game. Imagine $20 per knight per blister and $110 for 5 in a box. :party::party::party: GO GO GW!

Ya, but there will be conversions a-plenty. And the price isn't that out of line with other metals, is it? Wild Riders aren't that much, but the horses are plastic. I'm assuming the BK's horses are metal. That always drives up the cost.

But you know what to do, be patient and eBay will deliver.

Yeah, I'm definitely using Bretonian Grail Knights or something else from the plastics line. After all, blood knights are basically just Grail Knights on crack.

I'll definitely have to field some one way or another. Those things are going to kick a whole lot of ass.

it's gonna be tough for even that to get through a 2+ armor save and a 4+ regen save (provided the banner is taken), not to mention their solid toughness. Don't forget that you also have to hit your target first, then actually wound.

VC will have other, more suitable methods of dealing with those warmachines in the new book though, such as the large bat/vampire character that will be counting as a rare choice rather than a hero choice (that's right, you'll be able to take 2 kickass vampires in a 2000 points game), and the new and improved black coach that will have the ability to fly, as well.

As the rumour goes, the flying chariot will be quite hard to get.

You must feed power dice to the Coach at the beginning of your magic phase... for each power dice you feed, you roll a D6 and only on the roll of 6 then your Coach permenantly gains an ability. The ability that you may get is in orders and I believe Flying is the last ability that it gets on the 5th or 6th roll of 6's. :X

Yeah, you're going to have to use a lot of power dice to make that thing fly. Kind of logical, I guess.

Against Dwarves, though, I could see this working; rather than trying to cast in the face of however damn many dispel dice they can bring, just feed all your magic dice to the Coach. And make it fly!

Who's going to be the first to convert wings onto their Black Coach? Hmm, I've got one sitting in a cupboard, somewhere... (just need to find some suitable wings)
