Vampire Counts on the Cheap!

Time for a small paus in the updating army list business, to actually enjoy the hobby itself for abit! :)

Right before WFB 8th got whacked we had plans of starting Kings of War as well as WFB. Since I wanted to play Undead in both games I went out and got alot of Mantic Undead miniatures...

And then Age of Sigmar came with its round bases and forced me to make a difficult decision. Should I keep the square bases on my models because it's still legal and easier to use with WFB and KoW, or should I go all in and rebase them. I knew that I would enjoy the skirmish mode of AoS alot more if I went through the trouble of rebasing to round, and for KoW it's really the movement tray size that matters, more than individual model bases...

With that in my mind, I chopped up enough models for a nice 500 points Vampire Counts army, made almost entirely from Mantic miniatures. A cheap but cool Vampire Counts army for Age of Sigmar! Once these fellows have some paint on them, I will take them for a test game against a friend playing Empire - and then we'll add a few more points for each game until we reach 1500-2000 points... gonna be awesome!

 6 Grave Guard, Wight King, and finally 13 Skeleton Warriors.
By the way...watch out for the minion in the back!
My fearless Wight King and his retinue of Grave Guard!
