I think the intention was that the characters are game legal without using custom rules right Ghoulking?

Sweeney Todd

Master Vampire
True Blood
Yeah, I think ghouly meant to make legal versions of our characters. Back during TVC1 there was another thread with homebrew rules for our own characters. Here's mine:

Kenshiro - Vampire Lord

Vampiric Powers:
Master Strike(You're already dead)

Armor of Destiny(MANLY SAVE)
Sword of Might(Huge Biceps)
Obsidian Amulter(Too manly for your magic!)

Count Darvaleth

I <3 marmite
True Blood
Ah ok, gotcha. In that case:

Kraskor Banespike - Vampire Lord
- Red Fury, Quickblood, Dread Knight [Blood Dragon goodies]
- Level 2 Wizard [Nehklior's Training]
- Heavy Armour, Power Stone [Zacharias' Soulgem]
- Zombie Dragon [Bloodclaw]

He doesn't really have an impressive weapon or much in the way of magical items (the Soulgem doesn't really do all that much for him) at the moment. He stole a Skaven sword in the battle but it dissipated soon after; the reason it was strong was because it was a short-term weapon. Candle burning twice as bright for half as long.

This thread is pretty old but I figure it's still valid. :)

These would be my fluffy official tabletop rules for Helena.

Helena von Carstein - Vampire Lord
- Flying Horror, Beguile (shapeshifting and her speed/small size/beguiling appearance and manners)
- Talisman of Preservation, Rod of Flaming Death, Charmed Shield (defensive agility, lore of fire, lucky charm)
- Heavy Armour
- Level 3 Wizard (LoV)

And if I were to bulk up the in-game build I would add Quickblood and Aura of Dark Majesty, make her a lvl 4 wizard and give her an additional hand weapon.

Count Vashra

Lord of Shadows
Okay, here's Niklaus.

Level 4 Loremaster Shadow (Master of Shadows)
Flying Horror (Living Shadow)
Talisman of Preservation (Living Shadow, he shadow-merges when you try to hit him)
Quickblood (Lahmian)
Hatred Vampiric models (He really, really hates what he is)

An alternative approach for Helena would be to have her as a Master Necromancer instead, although it really downplays the physical stats.

Helena von Carstein - Master Necromancer
-Arabyan Carpet, Talisman of Preservation, Rod of Flaming Death (if not Arabyan Carpet)
-Hellsteed (if not Arabyan Carpet)
-Level 3 Wizard (LoV)

Much cheaper but way less interesting.


Staff member
True Blood
Agreed. A mix of the two would be the fluffiest, I think, but if I have to choose one or the other then it'll be the Vampire Lord.
