    The Hunger and The Dead Vampire

    After rereading The Hunger, I think I have been cheating myself by not using it when the Vampire is dead. So I have questions. 1. If a Vampire dies due to Close Combat wounds, does he still get to use "The Hunger"? 2. If you play that Close Combat ends after unstable wounds are applied...

    Duplicate Vampire Powers

    My friend and I disagree about duplicating Vampire Powers on 2 different Vamps. VC Army Book says, "You cannot buy multiples of the same power for a single Vampire, but different Vampires in the same army can have the same powers if you wish." I read this as meaning: a single Vampire may...

    Spell Generation for Vampires

    I want to see if I am understanding this correctly. Do you think GW missed this in their Army Book FAQ's? When a normal Wizard rolls the same spell twice, they can choose what spell they replace the double with. "...if you roll a spell twice (whether for the same Wizard or a different...

    How would you paint these wolves?

    Here is my Army Plog: https://www.vampirecounts.net/Thread-11-09-10-Soren-s-slowly-splattered-spooky-soldiers As I hope you can see, I want my army to have a blue or grey cast to it, like it was seen at night. With that in mind, how would you paint these wolves over black primer?
