I haven't seen this be asked anywhere, apologies if it has already. Do you need to read the other books in the realmgate series before reading those with the undead in them or can I just read the ones I want to?
Also if you have nice friends/opponents, you could just continue playing an undead legions list even if the campaign is temporary. I doubt Nagash will be around forever in the fluff as he is incredibly powerful and would need to be defeated but death has never stopped a VC character from being...
It was a bit harsh to kill Harkon, wouldn't a slap on the wrist and a 'dont do it again' have sufficed? Vampires have been trying to kill the Emperor/take over the Empire for centuries, its got to be hard to resist :devil2:
GW are always doing that with their special characters, its annoys me that Vilitch in the chaos book is a lord choice just short of 400pts, and his only save is his chaos armour, he's my favourite chaos character but i rarely use him for this reason
