The Dead Rise - Brad starts a new army (not 40k!!?!)

So... I've been itching to mess with another army, and with 40k souring on me a bit and my Necrons and Khornetards not really enthralling me, I've decided to turn to an army I've literally been wanting for almost two decades.

Vampire Counts!

The new Nagash and his Super Friends models didn't exactly turn me off from this decision if you know what I mean! (nudge nudge, wink wink) So a couple of weeks ago, I started toying around with Army Builder to come up with a starting point... it probably sucks, but you've got to start somewhere...

Vampire Lord - "Scion of Fury" - 507 pts
- L4 Wizard, Barded Nightmare, Shield, Sword of Striking, Armour of Destiny, Quickblood, Red Fury, Summon Creatures of the Night, Lore of Vampires

Vampire - "Scion of Fear" - 216 pts
- L2 Wizard, Book of Arkhan, Aura of Dark Majesty, Fear Incarnate

Vampire - "Scion of Blood" - 194 pts
- L1 Wizard, Heavy Armor, Fencer's Blades, Red Fury

Wight King - "Thrall of Duty" - 144 pts
- Great Weapon, Heavy Armor, Shield, BSB, Screaming Banner

Skeleton Regiment - "The Pointy Enders" - 215 pts
- Skeletons armed with stuff... 40ish of them

Ghoul Swarm - "The Danse Macstinkbre" - 400 pts
- Ghouls, 40ish of them as well

Crypt Horrors - "The Dwellers in Darkness" - 114 pts
- 3 Crypt Horrors

Dire Wolves - "Sic'Em Sycophants" - 40, 40, and 40 pts
- 3 units of 5

Spirit Host - 45 pts
Spirit Host - 45 pts

Black Knights - "Thralls of Entourage" - 304 pts
- 9 Knights, The Banner of the Barrows, Lances, Armor, Shields, Barding

Black Coach - "The Scion of Last Week" - 195 pts

I'm using this as a starting point, and I also picked up Nagash and one of his Mortarch Friends, and about 40 Zombies... I have no idea how good the list above is... It's probably in the range of "Oh what a cute little puppy" on the Universal Fear Chart, so I'm assuming I'll need to change it a lot eventually, but I figured I'd err on the "collect what's cool" to start with and worry about the power level after I figure out the game...

So, I'm going to be on an Undead Assembly-fest for a while now, and I'll post updates as we move along... currently most of this army of Badassness is in various Fed Ex facilities around the world and slowly assembling itself for me to raise into the ranks of the Unliving...

Time for some square base shenanigans!
