2500 point 9th Age Vampire Counts

Post  Druchi on Mon Jun 06, 2016 12:06 pm

Or Vampire Covenants I guess now... :S

Anyways, been screwing around in battlescripbe to make lists using models I own, and came up with the below. THoughts?
From What I am making out with 9th age is that lots of things are different. The Terrorgiest isn't nearly as scary, ghouls can take standards and musicians now, corpse carts can become war platforms and join regiments!!! I'm liking some of the changes...

You think they will open up special characters into the games? I have that ex-khorne wight king, but no character rules for him (regular barrow king now I guess).

Well here, rate my list.

Necromancer Lord - 375pts
-General
-Book of Arcane Power, Tullius' Teeth
-Mount: Cadaver Wagon (Endless horde, Bone Pyre
-Wizard Level 4 (Path of Necromancy)

Barrow King - 125pts
-Heavy Armor, Shield
-Red Plate of Gilles de Raux
-Lucky Charm

Barrow King - 171pts
-Heavy Armor, Shield
-BSB (Stalker's Standard)
-Great Weapon
-Unliving Shield

Necromancer - 135pts
-Dispel Scroll, Obsidian Pebble
-Wizard Level 2 (Path of Necromancy)

Dire Wolves x5 - 50pts
-Champion

Dire Wolves x5 - 50pts
-Champion

Ghouls x15 - 200pts
-Skirmishers
-Vanguard
-Champion, Musician, Standard Bearer

Skeletons x50 - 280pts
-Hand Weapons, Spears, Shields(? - don't know if they have shields anymore)
-Champion
-Musician
-Veteran Standard Bearer (Flaming standard)

Zombies x50 - 165pts
-Musician
-Standard bearer

Barrow Guard x30 - 405pts
-Great Weapons
-Champion
-Musician
-Standard Bearer (Banner of the Barrow Kings)

Ghasts x6 - 204pts
-Champion

Phantom Host x3 - 85pts

Shrieking Horror - 245pts

2490pts total

I'll get destroyed, but I think it'll be fun... I hope... The idea of that necro lord riding in a unit blob of zombies giving them Lightning Relfexes, parry, and a large 2d6+3 invocation could make it hard for them to die... But, they're still zombies... Oh well, need to get a game in to see how things run.

It's looks fine to me but Carson will be along soon with some advice.

I doubt they'll do Special characters as they were always a bone of contention among players. Just use the cool models as anything appropriate in your army.

Yes yes, I must have ALL the advice!
ALL OF IT!

haha, for real though, it looks like they really beefed up the VC core units, Now when I look at zombies I no longer see pant-less fodder... Now I see fodder wearing pants... Laughing

I'm here!

Vc core is still god awful, as they should be. The rules for combat loss crumbling has changed though in our armies favour...be sure to check them out, specifically what a bsb does for you. I really like your list but it suffers from the lack of a killing unit. Barrow guard are cool ,but will struggle to kill units effectively. Maybe if your plan is to drop both barrow kings into it,

Yeah. I was going to rearrange some magical items around but the idea is to put the BSB and necromancer with the grave guard, the other King with the necro Lord.

I really want to play a game. Waiting on free time and shit. Hoping Friday and I play.

I also am eager to get some free time to spray brush my hordes of minions of the night!!!
