Vampire Counts will be getting the next army book according to rumors in January/ Febuary.  So it was time to do a compilation on what is coming out. Enjoy

Please remember that these are rumors and to take with a grain of salt. Compilation put together by Harry.

The WD VC article should be viewed as a stop gap between books, terrorgheist will be in proper print much quicker than some people may imagine

new Krell mini coming:

Wait till you see the other new vc stuff new krell anyone?

some time ago flesh golems and black coach appeared in the rumour-mill:

Yeah but you wouldn't say no to a plastic black coach and some flesh Golems would you.

concept art for them is very cool. Half way between a big zombie and a ghoul with lots of stitching,

It seems that the Black Coach will be a dual kit.

About the Monstruous infantry unit, i've been told that they are more of Big ghouls than big zombies. Oh, and the models can have something no MI in the game have yet..... maybe something like the terrorgheist, but smaller? Don't know, just guessing.

Heard about this a while ago but wasn't sure what to make of it. Seems there might be something to it though:

The next army to go on stock rundown in GW stores is Vampires.

This is before things like Empire which some people have been whispering about as well; so my money would be on the toothy ones being released first.

A summary of the rumours so far:
- VC are next army book to be released (Harry, 75hastings69 Frgt/10), in january (ihavetoomuchminis)

- new unit "flesh golems" - something like a mix of large ghoul and zombie with a lot of stitches (Harry, 75hastings69, ihavetoomuchminis) with something no monsterous infantry has had before (ihavetoomuchminis)

- new plastic black coach mini (Harry), dual kit (ihavetoomuchminis, Harry)

- new krell and female vampire minis (75hastings69)

- and some old rumour concerning new plastic black knights - (Riders confirmed by Harry but not "black knights").

Some bits from me. The 'black coach kit' is not a straight replacement (like say the steam tank was for the Empire) and it is a dual kit. Also, we do get riders ... but they are not straight replacement for the black knights either.

Some more stuff from this thread from me:

Harry, can you confirm these riders are not surfers?

Yes ... They are not surfing.

There is a black coach that isn't exactly a black coach and it makes something else thats defo not a black coach.

There are riders that are not black knights thats another thing.

Obviously the Terrorgeist will be in.

Hastings said there is a new mini for Krell so he will be in ... so at least one new character.

The female Vampire could be seen as a return to the book of the Lahmian Bloodline.

So Yes I would say there are plenty of rumours for new stuff.

My understanding is the book has five new units + Lords/Heroes.

That is alot of exciting new options/builds.

What I know:

New Black Knights/Some other mounted stuff kit

New Dual Kit makes two war machine things, NEITHER is a Black Coach

Monstrous Infantry Dual Kit

Ghouls up to 10pts

Current Black Coach kit stays and goes finecost

February release.

But opinions vary ....

this is all incorrect from what im hearing


via ihavetoomuchminis:
Frgt 10 is right, that info is all wrong from what i've been told.

But Harry throws his lot in with Nattreehouse:

I think most of what Nattreehouse says sounds about right.

The duel Black Coach kit in which neither is exactly a black coach Check.

The current black coach staying and going finecast. Check ... which along with the plague cart gives you a fair few 'wagon type war machines' to go at.

Duel Monsterous infantry. Check

I hadn't considered a duel cavalry kit.

I know about new cavalry ... so assumed no Black Riders ... but a duel kit is doable

Hastings has posted to say the dual monsterous Infantry kit has the option to make winged mostrosities.

  2. Agree. Not that I play WFB, I'd just like the female vampire for an Inquisitor conversion.

  3. Oh god yes, Ghouls up to 10 pts please. Maybe people will use Skeletons for once(assuming they go down to 4 pts).

  4. Please let the VC book be a complete screw up, and not in the good way, I swear if VC get stuff changed because GW knows the TK book blows, then I may have to go back to playing videogames...

    Also what's with the piss poor quality of the rumours nowadays? I think I can make a rumour right now that sounds like one of the ones listed above.

    Ahem
    "Well the new MI are going to have something no one has seen before, something like a cannon? Yeah I think it will be something like a cannon... I don't know..."

  5. I'm thinking the MI have Flight. No Monstrous Infantry have that yet, and the kit is rumored to have wing options?

  6. Improve zombies,make varghulfs fly,plastic black knights and give us some kind of monstrous infantry...everything else is fine.
