    The Hunter

    I enjoy the vampire on hellsteed idea. Its really our only real way to deal with war machines and no fell bats cant do it since they cant march. Keep in mind though never throw him at anything thats not a war machine, 5man fast cav unit, or a chariot. Anything else is way to risky to lose a guy...

    ghoulies and size

    I field my ghouls 6x4 the unit is small enough to fit in our march bubble and still gets 19 attacks. 6 wide also gets the same number of attacks against them as 5 wide would against 25mil enemies I think. Also if the need arises you can always go horde formation if you need the attacks.

    So nobody is going? Guess I will have to do this one myself lol

    My philosophy: point to list comparison 8th edition

    lol competitive? We may be number one or two to be honest. Also using all of your points on characters is a big waste in this edition. Vampires are expensive and almost every role a character fills; something else does it cheaper and better i our book. For instance you want a combaty character...

    Who carries your BSB?

    In my Grand tournament list my bsb is always a vampire since he is a bunker mage and will never see combat. His set up currently is Vampire Master of the Black Arts Staff of damnation Bsb

    The latest foul treachery from the High Elf Camp.

    Also in the brb under the ethereal rule it says they have magic attacks and no this is not being rules lawyer it is just how it works. Magic attacks are not the same as magic weapons, its pretty clear to be honest. Also anyone who thinks the brb flaming banner is magical is also very dumb...

    2500 Tournament List

    Caster lords are the way to go in this edition. I would try a lv4 with vampires.

    2400 ETC list help

    With no way to add dice in the magic phase (and no the periapt does not count since it just shifts) and having the coach in your list does not sit well with me. Just a thought though

    Wraiths vs Spirit Host

    I am all about the wraiths but lets not discredit the spirit hosts. I dont think their optimal but in a fun list 4 bases can tie something up for a long time for you.

    plague of dwarfs and how to fix it

    Yeah that one thrall has saved my butt so many times vs dwarfs and empire.

    2500 vc

    You dont have enough core to be a legal list. Only the ghouls are counting towards the minimum.

    Wind of Undeath + Trickers Shard

    No this will still work if the characters are outside units though. Its a cool idea that deserves some more looking into.

    Invocation of Nehek

    You can not bring back something that is completely dead. If your vampire only had one wound left then you could of healed him but since he was gone you can not. Same goes for units, if it is completely gone then you can not bring back models. But as long as their is still one guy left you can...

    2400 ETC list help

    Your list looks fine, the only thing that really stands out to me is put the two units of fell bats together. Also I would drop drakenhoff buts thats just me, since I seem to be alone on that issue on this site.

    Also remember that under the DE faq that the hydra is not treated like a normal monster and handler unit. The Hydra does not get to pass off wounds to the handlers.

    2.5k VC Tournament List

    @ fades :yeah 1/36 times you will fail, but I would rather take that then have my lord sniped by war machines 1/12 times without the charmed shield. With the shield it changes that to 1/72 Also even if he does fail a stupid check he is still alive...but if he fails a look out sir check he is a...

    2400 ETC list help

    Yeah take the lv4 Thats what I do with my ect list. Also what are you going to do when you run into an army that has some good magic stopping power like dwarfs,empire,and orks? Plus 2 dice is not going to cut it. Also Im not a fan of the Drakenhoff anymore, I would drop it for something else.

    Black periapt + +1 magic lvl vs. MotBA

    Your not really getting one free dice with motba, you have to save one from the last phase witch its not a for sure thing since you may have to use the dispell dice you want to save. Motba is the way to go in my opinion. Though I am under the impression that vampire lore with a lv4 with motba is...

    plague of dwarfs and how to fix it

    Yeah if there is a dwarf gun line the best thing to do is to move forward asap. Try this hero setup,I find that he does well against any army that has war machines. Vampire Wristbands of Black Gold Dragon Helm Potion of foolhardiness Dread Knight Infinite Hatred Hell steed This guy will get...
