Vampire Counts - Beginnings
I've always wanted to do a Vampire Counts army and I'm really excited to get around to doing one. I've accumulated over 100 GW Zombies over the last few years, I somehow always get some at swap meets, and since they're good in the book, or at least good enough, I'm excited to paint them up and to use them.
The army I'm planning on doing is this:
Vampire Lord, Coven Throne, Aura of Dark Majesty, Dread Knight, Quickblood, Glittering Scales, Talisman of Preservation, Sword of Might
Necromancer, Level 2, with Dispel Scrol
40 Crypt Ghouls with Crypt Ghast
10 Dire Wolves
5 Cairn Wraiths
I'll likely build from this into an army list that isn't totally bad. I really like the Ethereal stuff and I think 5 Cairn Wraith Heroes being the front rank of a bus of Zombies might be really good.
I'll be using the Wraith Harvester models from Reaper for the Cairn Wraiths. They're nice and they're reasonably priced.
Before I'm full steam ahead with my Vampire Counts I'll be finishing up some Ogres (I have 6 Maneaters that are half painted) and I'll be painting up my copy of Dreadfleet. I hope to have pictures up of the Maneaters, and the rest of my Ogres, for next Monday and Dreadfleet the Monday after that.
