Vampire Coast : What's your DOOMSTACK of DOOM ?

DarkLordDDarkLordD Registered Users Posts: 2,361
Hello everyone, another useless tread by me just for the sake of fun and kinship. There is already to much sourness out there, so why not !


There we go, mine is :




Explain :

Syreens are even more epic with Cylostra. They got a astonishing 90% physical resistance rating. I am really surprised with them. They work wonders and are different from there cousins the wraiths. Where Wraiths are okay against high tier, Syreens do a good job in overall battle. Also there debuff of -9 MA against enemy units is GOOD !! Cylostra got some really nice skills for these units. I group them together with my paladin on horse, he is acting as the commander of the Syreens.

A lot of few entities units, why ? Because I like to build my army themed to my lord. Cylostra is a vengeful spirit of the deep, and in my story her haunting songs awaken the creatures of the deep and are drawn to it.

The rotting leviathan accompanies Cylostra in a group, together with the rotting Prometheans. These form the front line. No one ever get them down, EVER. A HUGE advantage with a front line like this is : enemy artillery shoots and targets them and it does absolutely NOTHING. Those guys are TOUGH to say the least.

Mournguls for stalking and get behind the enemy lines and artillery if needed. They will support from the rear the moment Cylostra her team has pinnend the enemy infantry down. Luckily I have Cylostra's Bretonnian Knights summon for a quick deliverance of enemy artillery.

Necrofex Colossus. I don;t think I need to explain why these guys. I replaced my artillery with them. 1. because they are better, 2. they fit better in my theme army I have going on with Cylostra.


For Cylostra I give her the Knights of the Realm instead of questing knights. I thought it was very useful to have some anti large unit with me.


Overall, its more for theme, but it does a hell of a job.


Let me know what you guys think & share your own DOOMSTACK of DOOM for Vampire Coast !

Remember, we are here for fun, not to bring each other low ;) ! with that in mind, have fun !

    Currently ive got:

    Noctilus with sword of khaine on necrofex
    1 x carronade (shooting monsters)
    1 x mortar (clearing up squads after queen bess takes most of them out)
    1 x queen bess (destroyer of infantry - targets anti large infantry and missile infantry first as theyre the biggest pain to this army)
    1 x gunnery wight on mount (keeps queen bess at full amo and firing faster)
    3 x deck gunners (focus fire on anything flying or big that the cannon didnt deal with)
    3 x depth guard (hide in the back or on the side and charges once front line attacks, generally just them getting in combat finishes the enemy off)
    3 x depth guard with polearms (one on either side and one in the middle to kill off cavalry and fliers that bypass the front line)
    1 x syreens (same role as depth guard but used more on the flanks against higher armor targets)
    1 x rotting prometheans (holds the front line in front of the deck gunners - healed by noctilus whenever damaged)
    1 x rotting prometheans gunnery mob (also holds the front line)
    1 x mournghul (put round the side or at the back and will attack artillery or archers from behind once the AI has left them on their own)
    1 x deathshriek terrorgheist (will engage any fliers so that the deck gunners can shoot them down, if there are no fliers will engage artillery/missile infantry)
    1 x animated hulks (hidden at the back with the depth guard until enemy attacks front line then charges and destroys any valuable looking infantry without halberds)

    Depends on the type of technology researched, and also what buffs you give to the lords. My doomstack, if I was to play Luthor in Mortal Empires, is

    1 x Luthor Harkon (Terrorgheist, Lore of the Deeps, Red Skill tree related to missle damage for gunnery mobs and artilary, otherwise yellow skill tree leveled up)
    1 x Gunnery Wight (Promethean, all active abilities related to reload skill and missle damage, 3 x Training)
    1 x Lore of Vampires (Promethean, Full Invocation, Full Zombie Summon, Full Curse of Years, Arcane Conduit)
    4 x Deck Gunners (including RoR)
    6 x Zombie Pirate Gunnery Mob (Handguns, including RoR)
    4 x Rotting Promethean Gunnery Mob (including RoR)
    2 x Mortars
    1 x Queen Bess

    Other buffs include the wreck of the heldenhammer giving me more artillery damage, the three shanties giving lots of reload skill and all technology related to ammunition, missle damage and range. Other tech could be okay such as the melee defense on gunnery mobs, but I didn't need to research them.

    This is my maximum dakka army, and it was the army I used in the final battle.

    Noctilus with the Sword of Kaine is the only Doom stack I need.

    My "doomstacks" are balanced armies with a range of units and few unholy tier 5 creations, that I can actually enjoy using.

    Harkon on mount
    Gunnery Wight on mount
    Fleet captain( Vampire Healing!) on mount

    1X Necrofex Colosus ROR
    2x Rotting Promethean
    1x shade Wraith Deck Gunners

    They are pretty good. They can withstand most high tier Cav/Monsters and infantry 1 on 1 , at least long enough for missile and monster support to help.
