Dracothian Guard

Dracothian Guard (7/10)



  1. There's so much stuff with the new edition I haven't even got my head round yet, +1 damage spell on Vhordrai on the charge makes our MVP for my money.
  2. I don't think there's much to entice to people in to do it. We have Vhordrai, Manfred, Neferata, VLOZD and at a push Nagash. All monsters all benefit from Soulblight Gravelords keyword, I suppose it's more if you already have a Mega-gargant model, then you probably would want to fit it in somewhere. Given the options we have, I wouldn't be going out of my way to purchase one to put in a soulblight force.
  3. Props to GW for releasing the rules on download early. Riders of Ruin is officially go baby!
  4. So other than very limited access to high rend (which is something not many other people seem to value) we do have a great army for 3.0. Also can anyone who has put the coven throne together some me from wasting money and tell how easy it would be to get rid of the vampires currently on it and replace with the new vampire lord stepping down or Prince Duvalle with his foot on the cauldron? I’m probably looking at paying someone to do it properly but just wondered on the feasibility. Another quick point... I’m assuming after everyone lost their minds Petrifex Elite will not be able to benefit from all the +1 to armour save stuff that coming?
  5. Do the crimson court gain the relevant dynasty traits for the army you take them in?
  6. Everything appears back in stock on the website now. I'm just hoping our book is as 3.0 ready as they said it would be and history does not prevail with it being not next edition in mind whatsoever.
  7. Nah we got second wave next February with mounted vampire lord, new grave guard models, Vyrkos as a playable unit of their own, bat swarms, endless spells and Abhorash. Right? On a more serious note, having read the book a bit more I’m now toying with purchasing Radukar the beast, choppy and his ability gives anything unit + 1 attack. Maybe him and Vhordrai are true best friends?
  8. Still don't have my copy, as in my excitement I only entered half my post code! It's sorted now, just delayed the arrival a bit. Still think we might get Lumineth treatment but I'll keep quiet about that from now on.
  9. Use as scenery? Neither of them are bad ignoring the command ability and we have no mounted vampire but the mounted wight King doesn't really synergize with Blood Knights anyway and until it's faq'd doesn't with Black Knights either.
  10. On the chaff front... I'm going for Blood Knight heavy Kalesti lists but realize I need a unit of trash to sit on at least one objective. I've never in all my years had zombies, yet they seem like the better option to skegs. Or just a 20 unit of grave guard with shields? Keen on others thoughts on this.
  11. I feel 195 is fair, before points were revealed I had a horrible feeling they were going to be 240-260 which would have been unfeasible to do an all cavalry battleiline. We've argued about the lack of -2 rend on their attacks and if they had that then maybe a higher points cost would be justified.
  12. There is the slim chance we get Lumineth treatment, there's some odd things that don't stack up, no mounted vampire lord, grave guard become major playas but keep their old kit when skeletons and wight king on skeletal steed get new kits but head scratching warscrolls. Obviously the biggest omission which book 2 will rectify is the distinct lack of Abhorash... On a more serious note does anyone have nay recommendations for metallic reds? Don't really like GW's non metallic armor on the blood knights.
