Vampire Counts vs Beastmen 750 pts

Got a game in with my Vampire Counts vs Beastmen at 750pts. We are both learning so it was longer than it should have been but fun. In the end the VC wiped the table with his beastmen.

More Vampire Counts: Spirit Host, Varghulf, and Necromancer

Continuing on with my latest inspiration to get my Vampire Counts army fleshed out a bit more and painted, I  finished one of my Spirit Host models, my Necromancer, and got a start on my Varghulf.

I really don't like the Games Workshop Spirit Host model, so I went looking for a better alternative. This is a  Reaper model and I absolutely love it. It was pretty easy to paint as well and the finished product looks good.

This is an old Necromancer model from the line of models for Mordheim that I had sitting around only primed for over a decade. Finally had a good reason to paint him.

Here is a WIP of my Varghulf proxy. This is also a Reaper mini. I do actually like the GW Varghulf model, I just don't like the price. This is much cheaper alternative and I really love the model.
I wanted the model to sit up a little higher so I had to do a little basing to lift it up. I ended up using jb weld as I was out of green stuff. It worked just fine actually.

Renewed Interest in Dead Guys

     Found a guy through dakkadakka to play Warhammer with and so it's inspired me to spend some time on my Vampire Counts army again. 

First up is a skeleton unit filler that I pieced together from my mantic skeletons sprue. It will count as 9 skeletons in a unit. 

I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Didn't take me a terrible long time either. Maybe 3-4 hours.

Here's a pic with it in the unit. works nicely in the center.
