Haha, I like that, the current box has 20 Zombies so they just fudged the rules to fit in with that (They have to have accurately minimum-sized boxes now, some OCD thing I guess). No army of mine will ever start with Zombies again
I dont see a lack of ohter VC players as a bad thing. One, I dont have to compete for models within the stores stock, two, I like it when Im one of the only guys I know playing an army. Thats one of the reasons I like playing my Skaven so much, Im the only skaven player I know.
GW have gone all London buses on us! No good ABs for ages, then 3 come along at once*. I have about 1k worth of a DE raiding force, but won't buy any more till I know whats happening with them. The new VC stuff really took my fancy, and its looks like AB can produce some nice balanced lists. Deamons or rather chaos has always been a personal favourite, and they're getting tons of evil goodness soon. What shall I do? If the Deamon list forces or massively favours undecided then they're out the window no doubt: it just isn't right that deamons that hate each other fight together.
VC and daemons are worlds apart. I like both, and the new Daemonettes might finally convince me to build that Slaaneshi mortal army, but...I don't see one directly impacting the other. I initially chose VC over Chaos due to play style. In "fluff" terms I loved both. VC is just far more a subtle army, and that's more just me.
I see this as just more good things for more GW players, that's all. -Nathanial Von Carstein
The sooner a shiny new army comes out, the sooner the butterflies who always leap on the shiny new army move on. Too many Vampire Counts vs. Vampire Counts games spoil you and you forget how to win against anything else.
More players starting VCs just to move on and switch to Demons should mean a lot of cheap VC stuff on ebay soon (not like I donÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â´t already have 11k points, but you can never have enough undead - especially Zombies! Me likes Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â´em...)
