Who should be the last Vampire count LL? (Assuming Neferata and Nagash are already done)

TheTrueLordAndyTheTrueLordAndy Registered Users Posts: 803
Lets assume two things for the purpose of this poll.

Firstly that we are getting Neferata.

Secondly that Nagash will appear in some form whether that be has is own legions of Nagash race of Vampire count/Toomb king LL or LH.


For the purpose of this poll assuming that those two characters are done and we only get one more Vampire count character as a DLC or FLC, who should it be?

    Any Necrach quite frankly just so we can get rid of that god awful kit bashed one.

    Also where's Mallobaude the true duke of Mousillion?

    True Mallobaude should have been an option, don't want to edit though so discussion doesn't get locked.

    If anyone votes other please specify who it is such as Mallobaude etc.

    You triggered me putting Merovech over Mallobaude lol. My vote would still be W`soran tho.

    Best thing would be all bloodlines represented.
    Sadly there is ghorst.

    W'Soran would make for the most interesting units and mechanics but Abhorash is just the best Vampire in Warhammer in general for me.
    A new type of cavalry would also be awesome.

    Definitely a hard choice there are a good number of very cool VC LL's that could be added.
  • ValkaarValkaar Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 4,789

    I would prefer a Necrarch or a Ghoul LL or some other equivalent just because I think they'd have the best chance to buff a thematic suite of units.

    I do NOT want a LL like 'Malus or Eltharion'....where it's a cool character maybe, but doesn't have a unique or easily implemented playstyle.

    I would much prefer LL's like Oxyotl or Imrik-style lords, where they have a distinct theme and help their faction play to that theme at multiple stages of the roster.

    To this end, I'm less invested in any one specific character, so much as just the general vibe of: I don't care if the dude was some type of badass in the lore. He's an inferior choice if he doesn't come with a thematic suite of buffs to a particular set of units or a flavorful playstyle. So a specialized LL, focusing on wraiths, or ghouls, or mass magic rituals, or some other distinct flavor of play would be my ideal pick.

    There are multiple LL's who likely meet that thematic criterion, such as Ushoran and W'soran. I don't know if I have any strong preferences between them

    And there many others whose only trait is: "I was a badass, and single handedly killed lots of things". Please, none of those.

    The Red Duke
    I mean I voted red duke but it’s more so I would want to see him as a FLC considering he’s already has a start having a model and such . Plus being surrounded by nothing but bretonians and Wood elves could be quite a challenge

    Idk too much about the rest mentioned but they would be better for a paided dlc

    I don't really like that 2 slots are taken up by Isabella (Who should be a legendary hero for Vlad) and Ghorst (Who should be a legendary hero for Mannfred) are most likely the reason we won't get all the blood lines represented. I still would like to see

    Probably won't get all of them, but it would be nice to have a lord for each bloodline

    Strigoi-Ushoran with Charnel Ghouls and Strigany unit(s?)

    Blood Dragon- Red Duke with Blood Guard (Greatsword Depthguard type unit)

    Necrarch- W'soran (Or Zarcharias as I've been told he is a better fit) with Fleshgolems and maybe a scrap type mechanic for enhancing undead

    Lahmia- Neferata with Handmaidens (Smaller size vampire unit with bound abilities) and Lahmian Coven.

    Could also use something like Graveguard with halberds but having a themed unit or two with each bloodline would be nice.

    Starting position, also I think they are underdogs of the Vampire Counts, while ugly on the outside they are the most just to their human follower's.

    And i really would like to be a Vampire Lord lording justly over my human follower's.
  • EmeraldThanatosEmeraldThanatos Registered Users Posts: 2,906
    It's hard to choose. I'd love to see the Red Duke, but personally I'd prefer a Strigoi LL, as that'd be very unique army focus compared to any other LL.

    Zacharias the Everliving. He's a Necrarch character so that bloodline can finally be properly represented. His story is pretty neat, and he can fit in nicely on the game 3 map if they add some new regions. Admittedly he is rather close to Sylvania, but oh well, it's not like the Von Carsteins have a monopoly on vampires menacing the Empire. The Empire could certainly use another enemy nonetheless, and it's not like he's right next door to Manny or anything.

    I just think he'd be cool, and more relevant than a ghost from the past like W'soran. He's a character for the modern warhammer world.

    I would say Abhorash since we technically don't have a Blood Dragon representative(unless you count Luthor Harkon I suppose), and he's so goddamn cool, but I think he'd probably fit more as a Legendary Hero or something.

    none. if they get neferata and nagash? i cant imagine any game 1 or 2 races getting more than 2 LL in game 3. if i had to pick a third, it'd be zacharias though

    Abhorash
    Abhorash is a no brainer. Vcounts is currently lacking a dedicated melee specialist LL.
    If not him, Konrad might be interesting with his madness.

    No Zacharias makes this poll invalid.

  • IchonIchon Senior Member Registered Users Posts: 5,695
    Abhorash
    Abhorash as currently only Isabella buffs the faster undead units but mostly the chaff.

    Abhorash gives a melee specialist which the Vampire's don't really have + buffs for cavalry and other than Ulrika and Vlad is the only semi-chivalric traditional vampire with big name recognition in the lore.

    I assume Nagash will represent for the Necarchs and Strigoi both as he is kinda both ends of the spectrum of magical research and bloody mayhem to make his plans work.

    Drachenfels is a cool character but isn't necessarily a Vampire- having Castle Drachenfels on the map as sort of an immobile rogue army led by someone in a hooded robe that has daemons, undead, and charmed men and beasts could be kinda fun for the combined WH3 map.

    Passing armies could fight and if winning get some experience nad loot but after 25-45 turns or so the Castle and army would regenerate.

    Out of all the special characters Vampires got, three are my favourites and I hope to see at least two in the game. These are the OG Blood Dragon himself Walach Harkon, the OG Necrarch Melkhior and the manticor riding doomlord of Middenland Dieter Helsnicht.

    The final rose has faded,
    The eaves will sing no more;
    The waxen ground will keep you bound,
    Death-pale until the thaw.

    I used to go by many names here. Crazycrix, Dubinekdubajs, Yrellian and finally Ariel, one of my favourite characters in the setting. Still waiting for Finubar and Naieth!

    Yes actually. I am asking for 4 VC LL (five if Jade Bloodline would be added).

    I would prefer some sort of "Character pack" for races that have (mostly) complete roster.

    The Red Duke deserves his day. Would be a shame if he was still a placeholder by the end of the series.

    It should 100% be Mousillon.

    I don't care if it's the Red Duke or Mallobaude, but Mousillon should be playable.
  • MrDragonMrDragon Registered Users Posts: 3,373

    I voted W'soran or Zacharias.
    I think the Necrarchs have the most potential for a unique feel after the Lahmians.
    But I'd happily swap Mannfred and Ghorst for a Blood Dragon and a Strigoi. (and make Isabella a hero or at least have her and/or Vlad somehow be able to integrate into the same stack)
  • xomitsiousxomitsious Registered Users Posts: 98

    I think Nagash and Neferata should be enough for the VCs.
    But since the OP asks us to assume there is another I voted "other" for Mr Hellsnicht since I'm a 4th edition guy.

    The Red Duke
    Red Duke is obvious choice. He needs to be full playable legendary lord in campaign soon or later.

    Honestly, I am not sure if Vampire Count will even get something more than just Red Duke, Neferata and unique starting positions for old Vampire Count legendary lords in Warhammer 3.
