i play reptus, so i can ony offer advice from the victim's point of view.

for all our sakes please don't take too many crimson knights. not only are they tough, high defense, and hard hitters, but now they can auto-heal themselves with the vampire rules. the less of them i have to fight the better.

use all them fliers and cavalry too outflank your foes and destroy their archers/mages/clerics

In other words "Crimson knights ROCK DA HOUSE! Stock up on Crimson Knights! I pity the foo' who doesnt take Crimson Knights! Goooooooooo KNIGHTS!"

 It's the perfect time to put on  your yellow boots and go meandering around the woods looking for...well stuff. In my experience looking for stuff is the best way to find it. -Loim

I bought a whole troop worth of Crimson Knights at Gen Con, plus chattel and the rest of the vampires. When I come up with an all vampire/chattel list I'll post it.

Something Sick for 1500+ games

Lord Kentaur
Death Knight Sir Dauron
Crimson Knight Osric
Crimson Knight x8

Toss a Greater Magic Weapon on Dauron and you have a frightening troop.

Nope, it's 738 of a 1500 force.
Of course using the troop in a 750 game would be interesting.

I've actually thought about taking the Dwarf Warlord, and like 3-4 grunt models in a 500 point army just to see how it would do. :lol:

After rereading the post, I understand where I was going wrong. Sorry about the confusion! :B):

but it would make for a fun, if short, game. And if you got beat that quick then you could always just play again right away.

How does your troop fair in 1,500 point games Lord Baasen?

I like to try to field Judas and spread 6 crimson knights out over two troops. Athak leading the other one. Of course my troops usually look something like:

Judas Bloodspire
Crimson Knight x3
Wraith Harvester x3 (gotta take advantage of that trencher)
Chattel x2
Nivar or Sir Osric, depends on my opponent

Athak
Crimson Knight x3
Wraith Harvester x3
Chattel x3


Lots of points *edit*I think in the 780 range*edit* but it also puts alot on the field. This is also if I'm not building my troops for card efficency.

Sounds great in theory, but I don't think you can split your adepts like that. All Crimson Knights would have to be in one troop and all wraiths in the other.

In a Necropolis force that has Judas Bloodspire any Crimson Knights that are taken in Judas' Troop (and only Judas' Troop) are not considered Adepts.


Wraiths become non-Adept in any all Necropolis Army - both Default and Crypt Legion Sublist.

... Pay no heed to proud thoughts, famous champion. Now the flowering of your strength is but for a while. After a while, the time will suddenly come that disease or the sword's edge will cut off your power. Either fire's grasp or flood's surge or blade's bite or spear's flight. Or vicious age, or the flash of your eyes will gutter and burn out! It will be all at once, great campaigner, that death will overpower you.

 

It's terrifying!  Without enough caffeine your body undergoes these hours of partial paralysis and hallucinations! :shudder:

And any Crimson Knights in Judas's troop are his personal guard.
