Yes, I did infact put a great weapon on my Vampire Count but I only do this because I am quite confident I will be able to survive all but the worst treatment(and if I recieve that I deserve to lose to begin with!) and it is worth the trade off for the cheap S7 attacks and added flexibility.
My heroes are self-explanitory and the rest of the army is fairly straighforwards. Keep it tight and move in for the kill(which is why I opted for the ruby ring, if my opponent decided to be a Wood elf and keep fleeing I atleast have a good chance to have 2 magic missiles and hopefully Wind of Death + Heavens).

Any thoughts are welcomed, even complete overhauls of my lord or heroes or whatever really. My only request, and I hope I am not unreasonable now, is that you motivate the change in some way(doesn't have be much! Just something!).

This is the list that I intend to use to get back on track into the 8th edition properly.

Cheers, D.
