Yes indeed, I do not have much hope for this but as I'm going up against two tree lords and Allarielle I thought I'd bring monsters too. Unfortunately short of trying to shoehorn Nagash in the Mourngul is all I have.

I think that is a pretty strong list to be honest. I have played quite a bit against double Durthu and Alarielle, so I feel your fear but here are some pointers that I have learned the hard way:

  • Your Vampire Lord will probably get picked off quickly but that is just collateral damage.
  • Use Manny to annoy the enemy monsters by teleporting out of combat.
  • Focus on one monster at a time.
  • Vhordrai hits hard but beware that the treelords can force him to fight last so pick your fights and only go into fights where you won't be surrounded.
  • Be aware of the revenant's waypipes as they can teleport and take objectives on your backline if you don't screen.

Just as an update to this. I got tabled by the end of turn 4, some charges of mine didn't happen and Vhordrai fluffed his attacks in pretty much every round of combat. I was winning on points though!

Seems like a tough fight but very well played of you to still be in the lead with victory points! I have had the same thing happen to me with VLoZD... they are so high variance.
