Being undead is one thing, looking like FEC is another. Neferata and her servants are supposed to both pass as normal humans, not corpses, and be the most numerous, yet they got a big fat zero models in whole of AoS. I wish they got some love after mountain of literally whos from CC.


GW hasn't really done much with the bloodlines since the Buffy von Carsteins in what, 7th ed Fantasy? And it took them five years to do any vampires for AoS. At least they're now back to doing different looks, even if for the time being it's just von Carsteins, Strigoi and the new wolf ones. It's not great, but it's a step in the right direction.

Frankly I think AoS is the wrong place to look for the traditional bloodlines now that The Old World is a thing. Let AoS be AoS and wait for the good stuff to come back with the old setting.

Yeah. Bone tube top. What's the problem? It's in vogue this season.

Yes, we know, but GW has not announced it so as far as they are concerned, the box does not exist "yet". In any case, my point was, that once the box gets an official announcement, it will be released within months of that said announcement. This is why the official announcements are a big deal, they almost guarantee a release within the business quartal the announcement is made in (or if made during the end of a Q, guarantee release during the next one).

I think they covered this in an old white dwarf. Vampires can pass for human, but once they are at war such pretences are dropped (there is no point pretending to be human when you are leading an army of undead monsters). As they become consumed by bloodlust/rage they revert to their 'true' self.
(Similar to Buffy, where vampires pass for human until their pop their fangs and go all bumpy head).

So Lahmian vampires might look different in a non-battle setting.... but then again so would virtually everyone else.

The vampire is simply great. I don't play... whatever the AOS army with vampires is called, but I'm still tempted to get that model.

Come to think of it, a lot of the vampire models have been pretty damn nice. Are there rules in Warcry or somesuch for them, so that I can just paint a couple of amazing vampire models and play with them, without having to paint seven thousand skeletons, zombies or other boring chaff?

The marine is nothing special. still a nice model though. I also feel that this 'holding the shield' pose works much better with this model than with the captain. I think it is the shield being smaller so the pose seems more natural.

Its def a nice model.

Vampires have rules in Warcry and also there is the Vampire Warband in Warhammer Underworlds

Considering pretty much every vampire from the book release is also massively tall? Most likely yes because that's the new GW vampire aesthetic.

Looks a bit strange though. The bat looks fine but is she holding it with a big claw? Probably just the picture/angle (or my eyes!). I do like that many of the new vampires have options like this, even if it's just an alternative hand.

Keep in mind it's like 5mm tall altogether. Being cradled in the vampire's creepy long fingers isn't doing it any favors tho.

Yeah, what's up with the left hand? From that angle it doesn't look like it has the same proportions as the right hand. That would be dodgy design if true.

I think it's meant to look like a mix between a bat and whatever that vampire-dragon hybrid character is. I'm all for having options, even though the fingers do look a bit weird.

Also kind of odd to have a dragon being cradled outside an order army. I thought Sigmar had the monopoly on living dragons
