Default Vampire Counts: Legion of Araknos

hi,

Decided at games day 2011 (UK) to randomly buy the VC Terrorgeist because it was awesome; and from there I have started to build a vampire count legion, what else..... With the upcoming schools league I thought that it was a good time to start building a full 800pts army. Compleatly forgetting about my decision it came to last Wednesday (6 days before the tournament) and started to complete the army, with the help of Khrone Forever. And over the past 2 days have build, painted and based the whole army (minus 20 build skeletons).

Here are some random pictures to start, relevant pictures will follow very shortly:

You know when you have those ideas and you think they will be good........this didnt end so well (long time ago i must add)


Thumbs of a right handed painter:


By shortly I mean as long as it takes to take the pictures.

looks great!! I have always had a soft spot in my heart for the undead. My first ever GW army was an undead Army in the early-mid 1990's...the only critique I would have is watch the mold lines on the skeletons' heads.

removing the mold lines was kind of impossible as we have 2 days to assemble and paint the entire army
