Good afternoon fellow Warhammer fans. I am currently working on another thread of how to make sieges enjoyable, but while I was analyzing each race I came to The Vampire Coast. I started going over each unit and what made them unique and their strengths and weaknesses. It go me thinking about how much people actually enjoyed the faction overall. https://strawpoll.com/dr84jqdsf
I created a poll listed above and I ask that people look at the faction on its own. Please do not give it a 1 if you hate Cylostra and do not give it a 10 if you are a fan of Pirates of the Caribbean. I want to know how you enjoyed their armies, faction mechanics, and inclusion into the Warhammer world to add more depth to the setting.
Pros: -Fun roster
-Some gorgeous units (See necrofex colossus/Leviathans)
-Hybrid hoard mechanics
-Unique starting positions
-Adds a layer of depth to the world
Cons: -While some units are amazing, others feel lazy or uninspired (see terrorgheists/undead wolves).
-Too many faction mechanics, makes other races feel meh in comparison.
Indifferent: -They can play expansionist or hoard style (I feel like they can do too much, but it's ultimately player choice).
-Cylostra direfin (I like CA being able to stretch their creative muscles, but I'm just not a fan of her. She is OK overall).
For those reasons I gave them an 8/10, they are really fun! They add a lot, but definitely feel like they could have had just a little bit more or a little bit less in some areas to make their roster perfect.
(Final personal gripe. I love the giant crab Leviathans. But since we had the prometheans I would have loved to see and undead kraken carcass or even whale carcass pulling itself across the battlefield.)
