The flavor text references Cursed City, but mentioning Soulblight straight out (plus the base style) makes me think this guy is AoS but they're trying to tie it to Cursed City (perhaps with CC rules in WD).

Incredible model none-the-less.

Yeah I just think with the soulBlight book it’s just convenient to get some cursed city mentions in there, and he will just be a character in there.

Every so often, someone in GW's marketing team vaguely remembers a class on cross-promotion. Or they've realized all the stuff they've been doing with Bandai, Wizards, and whoever also applies to their own games.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

GW never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity, and nowhere is this shown to be more true than in their complete inability to cross-promote any licensed product.

Easily one of the best AoS models to date. I might go so far as to say, one of the best models Games Workshop has ever done.

Charging Wild Rider





From a background point of view, I'd rather see him as a Quest expansion than an AoS release - having a new character that's also linked to the "Cursed City" just makes the world feel very small. I'd also rather see more generic characters rather than yet more of those with predetermined names and backstories.

Then again, it's a nice model, so I'd rather see him released as an expensive character release than an even more expensive Quest expansion...

He could possibly be the extra character card you get with the Cursed City novel. He did flee the city so I could see him teaming up with the heroes to get revenge.

It's a fun model and interesting take on Vampires but I hate how he requires an oval base because of the cloak - just like Yvraine, Skagrott the Loonking and Belisarius Cawl.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

Well, people do call bats "flying mice" sometimes.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

Yeah exactly, hardly the first time it’s been done.

Personally at most he might be the novel tied bonus character thing, that is just a regular AoS purchase.

We have a winner. Honestly, I was almost positive this guy was modeled after Orlok from Nosferatu. Get rid of his coat, and the long legs look like the count. Though when I googled it, he doesn't have long boots, etc. I'm surprised they didn't put the final nail in the coffin, and make him bald, like Mace-pire or Mannfred, but I'm sure a headswap will fix it.

So now we have batty vampires.
A wolf vampire.
And a NosfeRATu.

Any other vampire tropes they could wriggle into this faction? I think they've covered the majority of animals Dracula associated with. The Bella Lugosi movie had a vampire bee, so HINT HINT gw. And Renfield had his whole "fly, spider, cat" schtick. Maybe something with mirrors, though Hedonites have that covered

I’m pretty sure this guy is from AoS proper, not Cursed City, because of the base. The rim of his base is painted and is the exact same colour as the Vampire Lord with the bat hair that was leaked and then shown. The Cursed City models all have plain black base rims.

100%
He just has background well timed for CC. Just for even more narrative.
(And as mentioned, could always be the special extra character or something, at most).

His hair seems a little, wind tunnely to me. I can see where someone would like him, I'm not super fond of this one if I'm honest. I'm happy to see vampires getting some good love though.

Transformation into mist or elemental dust comes up a few times in the novel from what I remember, allowing Dracula to be near-undetectable and slip through the smallest gaps. While it rarely looks good in model form in my view, I can see GW playing around with something like that - they've done a similar thing recently with the Warcry Dark Elves and their shadowy cloaks.
