There are two vampire players in the map campaign I am in. They both use a vampire build that I find very hard to deal with. It is a Vampire Lord (I think lvl 1), with Red Fury, +3 Attack Sword, always strike first, and a 3+ save (heavy armor enchanted shield).
This build I find really tough 8 Str 5 always striking first red fury attacks :(. Our knights survive ok against it, but it just buzz saws enough to break them almost every time. I tried putting characters up against it but with always strike first our characters die pretty frequently. After the initial charge and the lance str boost is gone I have almost no hope of killing this beast.
Any suggestions? I have had mixed results with a hard to kill lord (one opponents has been putting the vampire in the grave guard unit making it even harder to target).
Trying to avoid it and whittle it down in theory works, but all it takes is a few lucky invocations and the unit is back to almost full strength.
The games we are playing are 2,000 points so try to suggest things that fit in that points scale.
Thanks for any tips. Its not that I haven't been able to kill the vampire, just more often then not it just tears through what ever I throw at it.
