The Undead Will Rise Again, Again.

Thanks to the efforts of UK exile Dave Meachen a box of plastic turned up at my place yesterday afternoon. All nicely removed from the sprue and in bags.

This is the expansion of my Vampire Counts army - used throughout 2009 - and includes:
  • Tomb Banshee
  • Cairn Wraith
  • Master Necromancer
  • Wight King
  • Mortis Engine/Coven Throne
  • 3 Boxes of Black Knights/Hexwraiths
  • Box of Crypt Horrors/Varghiests
  • Terrorghiest/Zombie Dragon
I ordered when the book was released and in hindsight suspect a single box of Crypt Horrors/Vargiests is unworkable. They will therefore likely find a role as unit fillers unless I can source others more cheaply - $108 per box locally is a joke.

In addition to this I have ordered 90 Mantic Zombies to complement the list.


  1. Might be worth making them up as vargiests until you can build 8-12 horrors. Might be useful then

  2. yeah, I'm not convinced that the Varghiests are a good use of points.
    Sure they hit hardish but have no save, are easy to wound, hard to heal, frenzy with Ld7...

    1. Vod, who are you trying to kid

  3. Not trying to kid anyone, in my opinion the Crypt horrors are significantly better than the vargheists.
