I am a vampire, I AM A VAMPIRE!

(The title's from an Antsy Pants' song, by the by)

As I said last day Gav's Vampire Counts book is totally a high to end on. Here's the 2000point Vampire Counts army I'm gonna make, which illustrates my love for skeletons and Necromancers...

Vampire Lord - 435
Tomb Blade, Flayed Hauberk, Crown of the Damned, Lord of the Dead, Summon Creatures of the Night, Summon Ghouls, Red Fury, Level 3

Necromancer - 120
2 Dispel Scrolls, Invocation of Nehek, Vanhel's Danse Macabre

Wight King Battle Standard Bearer - 225
Drakenhof Banner

30 Skeletons - 285
Hand Weapons, Light Armor, Shields, Full Command, Icon of Vengence

28 Skeletons - 244
Hand Weapons, Light Armor, Shields, Full Command

10 Crypt Ghouls - 88

10 Crypt Ghouls - 88

5 Dire Wolves - 40

5 Dire Wolves - 40

1 Corpse Cart - 100

10 Grave Guard - 315
Hand Weapons, Heavy Armor, Shields, Full Command, Banner of the Barrows

TOTAL: 1980

This will be the first army I've done without a Rare choice, and also the first army I've done that numbers over 100 models (111); though my Chaos army comes close. I wanted to include some knights but I don't think that it would do well with the ponderous nature of the army as it is. Maybe for 2250, or 2500 I'll add a unit of Blood Knights, and a 10-man unit of Wight Knights as a cavalry wing. Right now the Dire Wolves are used to flank and take out Fanatics/frenzied troops.

I own... ONE of the models I need for this army, and I'm gonna use mostly new models for it, so none of it is purchased/painted right now. I'll post pictures (for realz) when I do.


P.S. In this bit of news Fantasy Flight is gonna take over production of GW's board, card, and roleplaying games. They aren't gonna be able to do games where miniatures are at the fore (like Warhammer Quest, Space Hulk, the Specialist Games, or Man O'War) but they'll get to do the rest (including Dark Heresy *glee!*). I wouldn't worry about Space Hulk, though. Games Workshop says they're gonna do it in-house.
