The new Vampire Counts army book advance orders are said to be starting on January 7th with a release date of Jan. 14th . That puts us only a few days away from seeing a lot more information about this new Army Book.

This was the second army book I ever owned for Warhammer Fantasy back in the day. I am looking forward to seeing what is in the new release, and this morning we have a few bits about the upcoming release.

I am going to still keep these down as rumors, so take with a little salt until we get the book in our hands.

A information and pics for the book can be found here.

A few tidbits about the book:
1. All units and all characters from the book will be covered by the initial release.

Curse of undeath allows the caster of a vampiric spell to recover 1 wound, may be used ro heal another character.

Hexwraizhs have magical flaming attacks that ignore Armorsaves. Same goes for the fly through attack.

Coven throne is a mount for vampire lorsds or heroes.

Wraiths remain a rare choice led by a banshee. They can be used as characters aswell.

Dire Wolves get +1 s if they charge.

Tomb guard keep killing blow and magical attacks.

Kemmler restores 1 tomb guard or skelleton for each kill he does in close combat. He can be erheral or flying by using his cloak.


  1. Confirmed to be up on the website on the 7/1/2012. See today's blog post on Games Workshop.

  2. I do think GW could put a bit more effort into their videos.

  3. My local GW is giving away a copy of Deadfleet with every box of zombies purchased in the hopes of reviving the sea game. Not a bad deal!
