    Rules for Abhorash

    Khurdur: I like your overall angle here, that he's supposed to be good due to his skill and abilities, rather than due to a host of exceptional magic gear. Some suggestions however: -WS 10. Of all characters in the Old World, this is the one that should most definitely have it. His stats...

    Vampire Counts Rewrite

    I agree with you 100%. The fact that they never did anything with this, or even attempted to, is the major reason that I don't like the current 8 ed book, and decided to start my own project in the first place. As the army is now, when playing it even on a somewhat competitive level, the army...

    Ushoran, King of Strigos

    I like a lot of what you have done with him, but I must admit I do have some concerns regarding a few of the special rules. -First off, the Master Manipulator: You are allowed to redeploy D3 enemy units? That in itself can be unbelievably powerful. Even if you just redeploy one enemy unit, you...

    Vampire Counts Rewrite

    True.. Another "oddity" that separated the VC book from the rest of the books. Granted, some have dead characters in them, but that's the exception, rather than the rule. I think GW have rested on their laurels for far to long as far as good VC fluff is concerned overall. At least as is...

    Vampire Counts Rewrite

    Skittelz1981: Lost 60 zombies in as single turn due to charging ogres once. Not a big unit either.. so yes, crumble sucks. It makes our poor troops so much worse in 8th ed.. Well, never was perhaps an overstatement. But never in 8th ed to be more precise, and extremely rarely in 5-7 ed as...

    Vampire Counts Rewrite

    Count Vashra: First off, while I agree with you on a lot of your points, and I actually wish for a new book fixing some of the same issues myself, more importantly, I think the biggest flaw of the book is that it can be quite boring for opponents to play against a decent VC list, and while we...

    Ultra Competitive List

    Rawson is correct. If you intend to really take it to him by use of cavalry, then your vampires need to be tooled up. Remember, he doesn't break easily due to the BSB typically being hard to get too (assuming it is the Slann), he's Cold blooded, and his troops hit hard, especially if augmented...

    LoN: General Discussion

    It seems the project died out yet again.. I think in the end, I'm going to use what I have to go ahead with my own project at some time guys. I was sort of at odds with the initial direction of the project to begin with anyhow, so there might have been too many discussions/arguments which also...

    Nagash stronger than Teclis and Malekith according to the HE Book

    Malsteen: ahh.. you are right. that story.. keept forgetting that it exist. Kemmler used to be an unwitting pawn, but you're probably right. He is probably in on it now, assuming Mannfred told him the whole of his plan that is.. These kind of stores rarely go into that level of detail however...

    Nagash stronger than Teclis and Malekith according to the HE Book

    Malisteen: Is there any new lore which confirms that Kemmler knowingly works for Nagash? In the older lore, he was subtly manipulated by Nagash (possibly through Krell), and one certainly got the impression that he did so unknowingly. DoN: Yes, Nagash at the height of his power far...

    Vampire Lord/Red Fury Overpowered?

    Just to lay the discussion dead, and to bring it all back to topic. Yes, I realize the combination is "needed" to compensate for our poor core, but at the same time I think it is sad that it is needed in the first place, cause it makes Vampire Lords nearly all the same on the gaming table, and...

    Vampire Lord/Red Fury Overpowered?

    First off, have you read the Vampire Wars trilogy for one thing? Yes, Vlad was unfortunate on occasion (hit by cannonballs etc), but one has to keep in mind that he was very successful for hundreds of years, in keeping the largest body of backstabbing Vampires (that's including mannfred...

    Vampire Lord/Red Fury Overpowered?

    Again, I'm not arguing that his strength is less than an Ogres at all. I'm fine with them both being Strength 5 in fact, and I accept that the reason why a Vampire is stronger than his physical appearance would suggest is through ha magical change of his body. What I don't accept however, is...

    Vampire Lord/Red Fury Overpowered?

    Tawg: Even though there are wizards and other oddities in the warhmmer world, the world physics are basically always described as the same as in the real world. This can be based simply on the distances people are able to leap, how much they can carry, etc etc.. The act that one has magic...

    Vampire Lord/Red Fury Overpowered?

    I'd take issue with the idea that a Warhammer Vampire has any form of increased mass to begin with. Speed and power yes, but increased mass? From which source does this come from? This would certainly be news to me, not to mention I'd be rather surprised to learn where this supposed increase in...

    Vampire Lord/Red Fury Overpowered?

    Sometimes I'm wondering which Lore some of you guys are reading? 10x faster? Just as strong? This is where I most strongly disagree as far as many a players wishful interpretation of the lore goes. Apart from the description of Abhorash fighting to save Neferata outside Lahmia, there is not...

    Vampire Lord/Red Fury Overpowered?

    In my book (and this is what I have opted for in the Bloodline Legacies project as well) the two powers should not be allowed to combine. Red Fury is originally a Blood Dragon Power (not the greatest of wizards mind you) and Quickblood was a Lahmian one. I hope that in the next book, we get some...

    Vampire Lord/Red Fury Overpowered?

    The problem with the cost of Red Fury + Quickblood is that the bonus that one gets out of te combination as a whole, is much greater than the sum of its parts, and that's why I agree with Minty here, that paying a 100 points for these abilities combines would not be unreasonable at all. 100...

    Vampires and stealing engineers

    I see the sense in not having artillery in the current VC book by all means, but for more unique armies In the form of pure bloodline armies, you have more leeway, as each bloodline is an army on its own in many respects. :-)

    Vampires and stealing engineers

    My 2 Cents: I've actually been pondering the idea of having the Lahmians abducting the odd imperial engineer for the bloodline legacies project. My thinking was, if Neferata and the lahmians really wish to rule the old world, including the other bloodlines, then having an ace up their sleeve...
