Default what is the Best vampire count core unit

I think ghouls because of there t4, a2, and poison, what do you think and why

The creatures of the Warp have but one trait with which you need concern yourself - their undying contempt for the Emperor. It is your task to quell the rebellion they preach, and the only sure way is to destroy them utterly.

It will doubtless meet mass disapproval, but zombies. Ghouls are important to do the killing but zombies allow me to control my games.
Skelingtons are useless to me.

crypt ghouls becuase they seem to form the backbone of every VC army I have seen


Violence is never the answer, it is the question, to which the answer is, yes

Here's a question, if the VC core didn't have the undead rule and couldn't be raised which would seem closest to being worth their points? Ghouls of course, and even with Undead and raising they are still the best.

The only good vampire is a dead vampire. slay them all.
Have to agree with ancient zombies are amazing when used right. I've been on the wrong end of his zombies are they are masty to deal with.

Same here, they are annoying.

i must say i am intrigued by the zombie lover and his ability to use them!

i went for Skellywags - nothing outstanding, but they get a save, can fight in two ranks if you use spears (ghouls with two attacks is all well and good until the enemy inflicts 5 wounds), and they are the easiest to paint!
