All your noobish questions answered!

Q.  In the 8th Edition rulebook (page 249), Vlad von Carstein led his armies of the dead against the Empire.  Ultimately he was slain by the Grand Theogenist of Sigmar, Wilhelm the III.  Atop the walls of Altdorf, Wilhelm III wrestled bodily with the Vampire Lord, and both fell from the battlements onto the forest of defensive stakes below.

  1. Here's the really awkward part. Vampire Counts armybook page 13 " The two fell together, locked in an embrace o fdeath. First, Vlad was impaled on a wooden spike at the wall's foot, and then Wilhelm landed on top, driving the count still further on."

    Some cruel person reinserted the stake, perhaps Nagash

    1. I've never liked you, Stinky.

      For you I shall sharpen the stake at both ends in future.

  2. "Khaine" will be even more difficult to finish. Despite the chilly climate in Naggoroth and Ulthuan, and the lack of armor, Morathi and cronies seem to prefer to travel and fight half-naked.

    GW is that enlightened.
