    Similar, but it doesn’t regenerate life back to the caster.
    It’s just a damage that you don’t get a save against.
    There’s actually an undead unit who specialises in this ability and they cut through orcs like a hot knife through butter

    So not the best in combat eh. OK how about if he could affect one other gaming piece in the game with the Life Braker rule and then they could do the fighting for him.

    We really need to get round to that book of heroes at some points eh lol…

    Darkgunman-3 it looks like your still evolving with your helm it eh 🙂

    Anyway, yes your right. The back story I have in my head is based around a character called the Blood King, who was the first vampire. He was so powerful that his bite would kill you outright. However, the Blood King was defeated, and they tried to destroy his body but they could not destroy his teeth, the source of his power. So they divided them up across the lands so he could not return.

    They were entrusted to great and powerful families for safe keeping. However, over time the teeth of the Blood King corrupted the heads of each of the families and now they fight each other over the teeth.

    If the teeth are every united again, then the Blood King could return.

    the teeth themselves each hold a differe power of the blood king, and that is why each house focuses on different skills, such as magic, combat or speed etc. This would mean that their blood drawing fangs would being different places. So for instance, one family could have their fangs upon their front teeth instead of their canines.

    “is life breaker rule similar to drain touch or drain life ability?” (Darkgunman-3)

    Yes, and here is the rule out of the rulebook.

    Life Breakers
    Some of the most vile, demonic and unanimated warriors that leak into and tint the Middle Plain are so blackened with evil and chaos that they stand out from the rest of their kind for being the most twisted and terrible of all. These, the most Unholy of Warriors are so dreadful that their natural enemies upon this plain, the living can have a fatal reaction to them merely by touching these utterly evil things. Such is the wickedness and anarchy in these beings’ attacks, that the living can be overcome by their insidious darkness, which will kill them instantly. This makes these Unholy Warriors particularly deadly to all living that chooses to stand against them in battle.

    When a model marked as a ‘Life Breaker’ rolls a 6 to hit a ‘living’ model in combat, that target automatically suffers 1 life point in damage. This damage cannot be saved. Once this automatic damage has been worked out, the roll of a 6 still needs to be rolled out as normal in combat. For instance, rolling to overcome a model’s save, damage range, etc.

    Note: A Life Breaker’s attacks have no special effect against ‘Undead’, ‘Demonic’ or ‘War Machine’ pieces as they are not alive.

    So what basically you’re saying fight undead with undead to cancel out the life breaker rule.
    So how many vampire clans are there going to be?

    I’m still working on a better helmet design that i happy with.

    Yes that’s right, and their will be:

    Fray = A family based around combat.
    Luking = A family based around Magic.
    Zarro = A family based around frenzy/hatred.
    ??? = A family based around Illusion.
    And maybe one or two more. Please feel free to add in your suggestions here for names and new families.

    For illusion I have a suggestion “Maboro” though I understand it’s similar to zarro. The reason I picked it is that in another language it is similar to there word for illusion

    Maybe we should be careful not to have too many ending in “ro” lol

    hey Thomas,
    i guess you’re right on the multiple ending names with “ro”part.
    the name sort of fitted with the shape-shifting idea.
    if you don’t like,then i have no name to go with it then. i’m fresh out naming ideas.
    any suggestions?

    It’s ok I suggested a “ro” as well.
    We’ll have a think and see what we come up with

    Fray = A family based around combat.
    Luking = A family based around Magic.
    Zarro = A family based around frenzy/hatred.
    Maboro = A family based around Illusion.
    ?bizzaros? = A family based around Shapeshifting.

    Darkgunman-3 that is a really good idea (!) and thanks Thomas for naming the family of Illusion.

    We can use Bizzaro as a working title for now. I Think just one more house will do, and then that’s enough to get us going. We can even leave it open – saying not all of the Blood Kings teeth were found, meaning there are more families of vampires out their…?

    That’s fine. I didn’t think the names were bad. I just thought I’d we made any more family’s we should be careful

    Well nothing’s set in stone at the moment 🙂 we can always change it later.

    Today or tomorrow, I will set up a poll to see what undead faction we should work on next or if we should do them all in one book, but I think its clear that the Book of the Dead idea will win out.

    My vote is for the book of the dead
