I bought this team back in 2011. GW had just announced they were going to start producing minis in FineCast resin and I didn't like the sound of it - so I bought the last four teams I needed from them in one batch (Nurgle, Pro Elf, Khemri and Vampires). I knew that the Vampires were a tough team to use though so they did end up being pushed down the list of projects - six years in the lead mountain is long enough for them! I wanted to paint them in a dark scheme but also wanted them to be a more natural colours - so I settled on some muted browns, blacks and reds with some silver armour highlights.
I'm still deciding on what roster to take to the tournament (which is Boudica Bowl V) so I repainted Wilhelm Chaney who had been partly painted for my Norse team. He'll give me some options if I decide to try him out.
