Fresh Blood starting Soulblight - Army List


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I've decided to get back into the hobby. I've been out of the hobby since the dropping of WHFB 8th edition so I'm completely new to AoS. In 8th edition I've played both High Elves and Ogre Kingdoms, but I want to start a whole new army. Soulblight!

The fast playing style, low model count, general tactics and the models make this the go to army for me.

Also budget wise this should be a good army for me as I already know what I like to pick up from the shop. I tried making a list with those models and I'm curious what you guys think of it.

The models I'd like to use are:

2x AoS SC Flesheater Courts which contains:
2x VLoZD
2x Flying Horror (Ghoul Kings conversion using the little Vargheist wings)
6x Vargheists

1 box of Tyranid Gargoyle Brood to convert the Ghouls from the SC kit to 10 Fell Bats

Probably another 2 boxes of Vargheists

The list I came up with using these models would be the following:

Death - Soulblight - Swift Death = 2000 Points 

VLoZD - 440
-General -Lance, shield, chalice

VLoZD - 440
-Lance, shield, chalice

VL - 140
-Flying Horror

VL - 140
-Flying Horror

4x3 Vargheists - 150x4=600

3x3 Fell Bats - 80x3=240

This is exactly 2000 points. I haven't made up my mind about artefact or lore of the vampires.

I'd like to know what you think about it so far. If you have any tips or recommendations. If you have any tactical tips for this list?

I'll be playing in an AoS group 2 or 3 times a month and there will probably be a tournament two times a year.

The list doesn't have to be the most competitive list possible. It has to be a fun and good looking list which is competitive enough that I won't be losing every game. ;)

Welcome, @Peter1990, to our world of darkness!

I hadn't really considered just how far you could get with a pair of FEC starters, nice thinking!

I think your list can work OK. I recommend setting up your Vargheists as three units of 6, 3 and 3. The bigger pack will be your power unit for when you really want to hit something. 9 Fell Bats are kind of expensive but can work as a makeshift screen at those numbers. Use them to block access to your important things, both in movement and during pile-in's, and to go and tag lonely objectives.

Good luck!
