No Vampire, Vampire list. Is it duable?

Dec 24, 2018
Greetings all, long time casual 8th edition player and I recently got a vampire counts army from a friend that stopped playing. I was wondering if I can create a Vampire army without a Vampire Lord or Vampire hero wich is still somehow playable. I mostly play friendly games against people who dont make there lists to be maximum competitive.

Yep. Master Necromancers are cheap enough, Wights and Wraiths and Banshees are all potentially tough enough. You won't have quite the same control of the game that a good Vampire Lord provides, but it's definitely viable.
