So I have already played 8 games with this and lost one so far (I hate dwarves). But the idea is simple, all the characters go in the Skellies with the two wraith units on the sides and the 3 spirit hosts in front of them. The Ghouls and the Ghiest anchor the flanks and I scream my way through the foe

Neat list! I would also like to try something like this.

I've never had good luck with ghouls. If they hit another horde unit, they'll get decimated since str5,6 is kinda the norm now. But if they hit a unit only 5 wide, they don't do enough damage, so they become an expensive tarpit.

You could swap the ghouls for 2 units of 50 zombies to guard your flanks. It will also save you enough points to get a fell bat unit of 3 bats and another unit of 2.

Also, you can get another point of armor save on your BSB by taking heavy armor, enchanted shield and Talisman of Preservation. Same 4+ ward, but a 3+ armor save!

Have you played against Daemon armies? I'm wondering how you handle armies with lots of magical attacks.

Have you found your lack of magic a great hindrence? Typically if I go low magic I try to find a way to fit a scroll caddy in there at least.

I found that it was not such a big deal for me. Yea I had to take some nasty spells but I still make it through ok. Terrorghiest helps a ton with this as I charge him into mage units that have scary direct damage

Well I refined this list alot more since this but it was to make sure my chaff and wraiths could last longer

Ive been using a similiar list lately with no BSB and a master necro and it works pretty fabulously. Could you post your updated list sometime?

I find Strigs can carry more weight than Vampires and I dont use lore of Vampires ever in this list so I would much rather have my Lvl 4 be cheap and rocking death. Also built in Regen means the Strig can focus on killing characters with pesky magic weapons that might hurt my ladies instead of just defending himself like a vampire. Also the crown jewel is most Strig builds are cheaper:thumbsup:

Mr. Johnny. How did you used your Banshee and 2 Wraiths unit? I would love to have a similiar unit cause I think it the most awesome looking unit in the game! Thanks a lot! :thumbsup:

Strig is a Lvl1 vamps.... and that is all I take from Vampires and almost never cast the spell. Thus I dont use it:thumbsup:

What an intriguing list,so different from my usual approach.Could you explain your tactics with your revised list ie where do you put the characters etc.Also what elements would you add if you were playing at 2600 points?Lastly do you think this list would work versus the Ogre kingdoms? I am getting so sick of being mauled by ogre death-stars!
