    For my first v1.2 list I thought I'd go with the triple blood dragon vampires:

    Characters:

    Vampire Count, The Dead Arise, Learning 2, Wizard Master, Ogre Sword, Sprout of Rebirth, Divine Icon, Crimson Rage, shield (Warlord, Evocation) - 840pts

    Vampire Courtier, Learning 2, Perfect Warrior, Talisman of Supreme Shielding - 440pts

    Vampire Courtier, Learning 2, Perfect Warrior, Talisman of Greater Shielding, Unholy Tome - 440pts

    Core:

    40 Zombies FC - 270pts

    40 Zombies FC - 270pts

    40 Zombies FC - 270pts

    Special:

    8 Ghasts
    FC - 650pts

    Cadavar Wagon Endless Horde - 240pts

    5 Dire Wolves - 80pts

    5 Dire Wolves - 80pts

    The Suffering:

    2 Phantom Hosts - 120pts

    2 Phantom Hosts - 120pts

    Swift Death:

    4 Vampire Spawn
    FC -320pts

    Varlok - 360pts

    4500pts

    Any advice is appreciated. Any thoughts on taking the Varlok/Vampire Spawn out and putting vampire knights in? What about Phantom Hosts vs. Bat swarms. I have lots of phantom hosts and no bat swarms but I feel bat swarms would be more effective in game. Obviously this is a very character based list, do you think the vampires will be able to get the job done or do I need more damage output in the form of ghouls or other combaty units?

    Sadly, this list is illegal =/
    You cannot take the Path of Evocation on BotD vampires, those can only take Occultism. If you strip away most of the wizard upgrades from your vampires you could probably squeeze in a necromancer or two to do some raising for you, otherwise I think this list is in a bad place.

    Who's idea was it to make it so you can't take vampire magic on vampires???????????????????

    To be honest Occultism seems pretty good. Kill a couple zombies to get some great bonuses? Sure. I did have to go down to two vampires and re-work my zombies to get a caster bunker but I think I'm good now (on a side note I realized I didn't have minimum troops in that last list, man was I in a cheating mood).

    Here's the new list:

    Characters (1800pts):

    Vampire Count, The Dead Arise, Ogre Sword, Sprout of Rebirth, Divine Icon, Crimson Rage, shield (Warlord) - 720pts

    Vampire Courtier, Perfect Warrior, Talisman of Supreme Shielding - 330pts

    Necromancer, Wizard Master, 4 Learned spells, Talisman of Greater Shielding, - 430pts

    Necromancer - 160pts

    Necromancer - 160pts

    Core (908pts):

    40 Zombies FC - 270pts

    39 Zombies FC - 264pts

    39 Zombies FC - 264pts

    20 Zombies - 110pts


    Special (870pts):

    8 Ghasts
    - 650pts

    Cadavar Wagon Endless Horde - 240pts

    The Suffering (240pts):


    2 Phantom Hosts - 120pts

    2 Phantom Hosts - 120pts

    Swift Death (680pts):

    4 Vampire Spawn
    FC -320pts

    Varlok - 360pts

    4500pts


    I could take out the vampire spawn, both units of phantom hosts, and the musician on a zombie unit and get a unit of 4 vampire knights with the 4++ save against shooting attacks banner. Thoughts?

    Looks more legal now =P

    I assume that the Count is still a wizard with 1 spell from Occultism, since that is free.

    Vampire Spawn are quite good for their cost, but Phantom host are not (though I haven't tried them yet in v1.2). I think some Vampire Knights could be more useful. They are even scoring which is always nice.

    Do you really think the talisman is worth it on the big necro? Seems he is not really meant to be in combat anyway. I'd shave some points elsewhere and give him the Book of Arcane Power.
