    It is allowed. You're not buying a Steed with Dread Knight, you're using a Bloodline Power. It's just wrong that anyone would even argue against it.

    o.O Of course there were Bolt Throwers.... There were also Fell Bats

    The Zombie Dragon

    I'll admit, I've only used it 3 times so far, once against a Star Dragon (Dragons don't get ASF). Everytime the centerpiece died effortlessly, leaving my Lord and a Dragon to handle any rider that may have remained, not to mention the Varghulfs I keep next to him. I'm not talking MathHammer...

    The Bestial Stirrings of a Strigoi Flying Circus @ 2250

    I think the list looks great. Here are what I would recommend for a change if you're still interested... You have 95 of 100 points in your Lord's Magic Items. I would lose one of the 20 point Stones, and replace it with a Black Periapt(better than 2 Power Stones) and Talisman of Lycni(25...

    The Zombie Dragon

    Probably not under-priced, but any lower would have been under-priced.. It's designed to take out the 'focal point' of an army. Be it a Dragon, Greater Demon, Treeman, Tank, Alter, whatever. And if it hits, it -will- take it out too. It's not designed for the Tzeentch Lord with the 0+ armour...

    The Zombie Dragon

    The Frost Blade is the best tool. It can and will take out any and everything it hits, every time (which is why Red Fury and Infinite Hatred are so key there). And honestly, while that may be tooling up for a specific type of target, it's a great combo in any game where there's always...

    Varghulf Ancient

    Strigoi? Strigoi don't exist, this is just a powerful and old Varghulf. The very laws of the universe were rewritten to exclude Strigoi bloodlines. Personally, I think it's great, though I still think a slightly higher WS is more thematic. (It's still set to 5, but I think we agreed to a...

    Just to clarify, Combat Res is -one way- to win games, not the only way. Anyhows, congrats Uncle Bob, so you went with the 16 Fell Bats as I suggested? Or still used this list?

    Varghulf Ancient

    I like it, butI think the WS should be 7. Now to give it a cost. ;)

    The Bestial Stirrings of a Strigoi Flying Circus @ 2250

    Well, personally I agree with at least 1 model having the Talisman, I know one of mine do. But only if you have the magic-item points to spare. As for wizards in infantry, that's the beauty of Varghulfs, they take the outer flanks and can't be "flanked" due to their Bestial Fury. His Bats...

    I think what Grishnakh99 meant to say was that, if you're crazy enough to do these one-on-one character vs unit battles he describes, the army will lose. I've a feeling though that you're playing smarter than that and hitting a unit with multi characters and varghulfs all at the same time...

    The Bestial Stirrings of a Strigoi Flying Circus @ 2250

    You've got the uber-mobile army of bad-asses. Kill off the wizards of the enemy and then the level 1 spells work just fine. Generally speaking though, never focus a vampire army on needing spells the first 2 or 3 turns. Focus their magic for later turns. First turns you take out the enemy...

    The Zombie Dragon

    I can only guess that they wanted to deter the Hero-Hammer style of playing. My army (Lord on Dragon) got seriously chewed in the new edition. I'm thinking that I'm gonna have to go with something else other than Vampires to feed my Hero-Hammer moods.

    Thoughts on the new/changed VC units

    Yeah, but when facing S7, 2+ won't help either. ;) When facing Wood Elves (Lethal Shots, Wardancers) or any other Killing Blow type army, (especially those Lethal Shots), that Cuirass is invaluable. I should come up with seperate builds for KB vs non-KB armies.

    Thoughts on the new/changed VC units

    Hmm, From a numbers point of view, the new 305 point Vampire Lord (when adding in Bloodline Powers) vs the 285 point Vampire Lord of old edition , we're paying 20 points for a -1(-3 for us BloodDragon Players)WS, -1W, -1A, and -1I. For many of us, the Zombie Dragon is an even bigger issue. He...
