Default 2000 point VC list

Vampire Lord with Extra Level
Dark Acolyte, Aura of Dark Majesty, Lord of the Dead
Crown of the Damned, Flayed Hauberk, Helm of Commandment

Vampire
Dark Acolyte, Summon Ghouls

Vampire
Supernatural Horror
Talisman of the Lynci, Sword of Might

Necromancer
Rod of Flaming Death

Skeletons
15 /w Full Command
Banner of the Dead Legion

Skeletons
15 /w Full Command
Banner of the Endless Nightmare

Crypt Ghouls
15

Corpse Cart
Balefire

Corpse Cart
Balefire

Dogs of War Light Cavalry
5 /w spears, shields and a musician

Black Knights
7 /w Standard Bearer, Musician and Barded Steeds
Royal Standard of Strigos

Varghulf


Total: 1995 points


Basic plan. The skeletons and ghouls forms the tarpit centre battleline, backed up by the Corpse Carts (one of whom will be deployed in the Banner of the Endless Nightmare skellies unit to boost up the unit to more ranks, the other will be ridden by the necromancer and will be behind the lines supporting the ghouls and other skellies)

The lvl 4 and lvl 2 Vampires stay close behind the lines, they'll need to pull a couple of quick Invocation of Neheks in the first turn or two to bulk up the skellies and ghouls.


On one flank we'll have the black knights and the fast vampire. The other flank will have the Varghulf and the light cavalry. These will hit in from the flanks once the tarpits are engaged. The fast vampire has 5 str 6 attacks and causes horror. I expect him to be capable of taking on even line infantry regiments as long as he has dire wolves charging in the flanks to negate their rank bonus.

You've got a small problem in that one of you vampires has 2 magic weapons. You can only take one. I think making your skeleton units that small to start is also a bad idea. If you can't get those units up to around 25-20 models fast, you're in a lot of trouble. If I were up against this list, any of the invocations you tried to cast in the first couple turns I'd just throw a dispel scroll at. With no anchor units to hold up an enemy your cavalry units and varghulf will have a lot of trouble taking on the enemy army by themselves.

Thanks for the response.


Okay I didn't know you can't take two magic weapons. A shame since I was looking forward to a 5 attack Str 6 vampire.

So the list has been slightly modified, the sword of battle was removed as was a single black knight, and in return all three main units has been boosted up to 15 models each.

Its been a while since I used mine, but I'm pretty certain you can only put a CC in a unit if its being ridden by a necro...

Actually you'd be correct, since it counts as a monster.

Hey, nice list! =) Tell me, the stupidity that the Crown of the Damned grants to the bearer, it is a big problem? Because I have been thinking on using it on my Combat VC...

You really cannot afford to lose your general in a VC army. If your general's gone then it's pretty much game over. And at the lord level stupidity is not going to affect you too much. (I'd think twice about hero level Vampires though, their leadership is way too low, if you're playing a below 2000 point game with a hero level vampire as the general then maybe take Walach's Bloody Hauberk instead)
