So I play tested my "Screaming Blending Good" Time and did not much care for it.

So I brain stormed this idea. If your wondering why so many command models its because only units with command models may claim objectives.

What's that 17 drops? Nice. I'm assuming that the VL goes with the BK's. I would worry about them getting whittled down to the point of losing Look out sir. This looks like it would be alot of fun in the movement phase. Plus with 150 zombies starting, a couple of bubbled invocations would make for a ton of models on the table!

Looks fun, I'd say drop those Black Knights and grab a wraith and a Spirit host. Guessing you're going for the 4up LoS shenanigans with the HW, if that's the case beef those 2 units up to 7 with the BK points. Remember you won't get a LoS as it is from the HW.

But what about cannons. The BK buss is to try and look out sir at least one shot before they deliver their payload.

I am planning on using hexwraiths or Vargs (in case of organ gun) to shield the vamp. (Is this what you meant by 4 up shenanigans bigbadbat ?)

Get that Vamp charmed shield.
If your VL is 3" away frim either HW unit, he may take a 4+ LoS. I've run this to great effect, albeit before the dawn of Storm fiends. Get those HW to seven though and maybe drop the Hellwraiths? You can certainly get Hard Cover from the HW or Vargs, but keep that Vamp within 3" ofthe 2 HW units. That will give you 4+ LoS, 2+ charmed shield, and a 4+ ward against those cannons. If they're not skullcannons, the HW shrug off the Cannonball and laugh.

You've got to be very careful with your angles and hit targets with multiple units and you should be alright

Ohh man I always thought that 4+ LoS was a ward and therefor did not stack with TOP...

NVM I just remembered its a LOS roll not a ward. I totally forgot about the 3 inch LOS 4up rule. Thanks for reminding me.

Maybe I should drop the Black Knights altogether and add 1 more spirit host and bump the hexwraiths up to 6 and 7 models.

Hated it at first, now starting to like it. The dual terrorgheists and screaming into combat is viscious. NEVER charge anything good (hexwraiths, vargheists, terrorgheists, vampire) into the same combat with one of those zombies units. With such small numbers in these units and wounds lost to combat res will REALLY hurt. Maybe try running the knights 3x2 to try to assasinate a character or something with killing blow
