ok so I'm playing a demons player tomorrow and I wanted to try a screamer army. I have 5 screams a turn here with my Strigoi nearly as good as my terror gheist. Think it might be fun to play?

When you're going for a scream choir style list, you'll want access to a Leadership debuff spell or two (Lore of Death/Heavens). I'd drop the Knights (they're not gunna be able to March away from the foot-slogging Strigoi anyway) for a Vampire Hero on Death and maybe with the Cursed Book. Also, be wary with those ghosts against Daemons. Ethereal isn't gonna rate against their magic attacks.

Looks like a fun list to play with and against. Finally something for VC to do in the Shooting Phase.

Thanks for the suggestions. I didn't end up changing anything and I got smashed. It didnt' help that the rolling gods were just not with me, but the screaming was sub par at best. Averaged 3-4 wounds per turn and just too many points sunk into screams. Still fun game, but not sure i'll take that strategy again.
