So this is my first attempt at a vampire list. Dont rip me too much if there is anyhitng wrong, just want some suggestions. I wanted one that was a little more CC oriented, but decent at magic.

Lord

Vamp. Lord:Red Fury, Dread knight, Lord of the dead, Dreadlance, Crown of the Damned, extra magic level-445

Heros

Vampire- Forbidden Lore, Lord of the dead, Helm of commandment- 180

Core

15 Skeletons: Full command, spears-155
15 Skeletons: Full command, spears-155
15 Skeletons: Full command- 140
Corpse Cart: Balefire-100
Corpse Cart: Balefire-100

Special

20 Grave Gaurd: GW's, Full command, Banner of the barrows- 335
5 Black knights: Barding, Full command, Banner of Strigos- 215

Rare

Varghulf- 175

Total: 2000

So the Lord goes with the black knights for protection. He is a CC monster on the charge, and does fairly well without it due to his banner. Hes pretty good at casting magic. My plan is to boost up the skellie units with my two vamps in the first turn. The grave gaurd have the vampire hero behind them, so they hit on 2+ most of the time. Corpse carts are there to screw with any magic. Ill also be summoning zombies whenever i can. I chose forbidden lore over dark acolyte for the hero so im garenteed one spell caster with decent movment to have vanhels. I could use some suggestions.

If Rampage Jackson was in warhammer, he would be an ork.

Altough you'd be sure to get the vanhel's with the forbidden lore for the hero, you'd do good to notice that he can only cast it once with 2 dice (if he uses one dice from the pool) and as it's 7+ spell, you can't cast it with 1 dice if you try it with your hero. It's very easy to dispel this even with the minimum of magic defense. You'd do well to switch the bloodline powers for more generally useful ones. Avatar of death and walking death are a decent combo if you want some fighting power for example. Also the Crown on the lord isn't the best of ideas because failing that stupidity test with the most important guy on your army at crucial point may well cost you the game (remember that he can't cast magic too if he fails the test on that turn).

I find the Vampire powers let you be killy or all Harry Potter, but not do both and do them well.

Maybe have one Vampire Combat centirc and the other magic oriented ?

adamsouza, it kinda is already magic centered and CC centered. The lord cant reall improve his CC with 20 points of bloodline powers (considering i toake away lord of death, which would be crazy since then i cant summon more skellies.) The other vamp is all magic bloodlines with the helm to help the GG. And i take the 4+ ward save because its the only ward save i can use at all times. the wristband of gold are also good, but i can only use them at range.

If Rampage Jackson was in warhammer, he would be an ork.

It's good to notice that getting good combat character doesn't necessarily require the relatively expensive dread lance. If you combo red fury with hatred (either taking the bloodline power or sticking the vamp in a unit with the hatred banner), you could reap similiar results.

Good point chaoslord, ill give it a a try for a couple games. The dreadlance is just nice to have without using bloodline powers. inf hatred wont relaly work, since i want a barded horse and lord of the dead. ill try the strigos banner though (since i laready have it.)

If Rampage Jackson was in warhammer, he would be an ork.
