    Which new Mortarch do you choose?

    I have a battle against the new Mannfred coming up. How exactly does his attack/wound thing work? Is it sacrificing dice for attacks, or can he also sacrifice attacks for dice? Would be good to know what I'm in for...

    Can lore attribute heal units?

    It says choose a model. What about if there is a wounded Crypt Horror or Spirit Host unit? The wounds for these units are technically a "wound pool" so there is no wounded model. So does this render them unable to be healed? What about if they are a unit of one base, or one model. Can they be...

    Have any of you seen this? EDIT TO ADD BETTER PHOTO: http://www.coolminiornot.com/314998 Sorry if it was already posted... but if not, it makes for wonderful inspiration. This won an award at the UK Golden Demon and is featured in this month's White Dwarf...

    Absolutely stunning. This is one of the best projects I've ever seen.

    Wolves only

    I've been away from VC for a long time - I've only just flicked through the book and haven't played a single game of 8th - but now that wolves count towards core, a theme popped into my head. How viable do you think it would be to use your core points on wolves only? Do their new rules...

    Opinions please, unit filler or objective

    It could work as a unit filler, but only in quite a large unit of Ghouls. If they are only 10 strong, it will dominate the unit - but it can be turned into a centrepiece to a larger one.

    Spirit Hosts. Yea or nea?

    They could be worth it. An ethereal BSB in there adds a little hitting power and combat res. They are brilliant at holding up units - in fact no unit in the game is better at holding up big beasties like the hydra. That's one thing the wraiths don't do better than Spirits: take wounds.

    Warhammer FAQ. Part Deux

    Beat me to it, Danceman! Ah well, I'll pase my thoughts here as well: No Beast Cowers on Daemons!! And yikes - killing blow is incredible in challenges. Much better than I thought. And Steal Soul gives you a wound even if you don't cause one! Lore of Death and Crimson Gem could be quite...

    Banshee (+ Wraith added)

    The lower half is the GW Banshee skirt, with a bit of green stuff love. The upper body is the torso of a Dark Elf cold one knight; the left arm belongs to Malus Darkblade, the right is a High Elf axe from the chariot sprue. A nice mix!

    RE: Banshee One wraith is finished as of just now - I'll put up pics tomorrow, when there will hopefully be a bit more light. Very happy with it though :)

    Banshee (+ Wraith added)

    RE: Banshee The ribbons are part of the spear itself, which I think is either from the High Elf chariot box, or the dragon kit. The blue tinges are probably coming through from the space wolves grey layer underneath the ghostly colours. Now that you mention it, the spear doesn't look...

    Banshee (+ Wraith added)

    RE: Banshee Thanks for the replies chaps :) I prefer the weapon solid - it gives it nice contrast. I think the bright face is due to my poor camera skills, and bad lighting... it doesn't look quite so bad on the actual model.

    Do you feel put off at all?

    It's not about wanting a challenge. It's about not wanting to play an army that people feel is flat out over-powered. Even if you don't take those items (and I don't take the Drakenhof Banner anyway) then people still give you rubbish comp because you're Vampire Counts. People still complain...

    Do you feel put off at all?

    Hero choice was at the masters. It's the fact that the tier system makes Vampires only able to take 2000 points that might be happening at the other one.
