So I’m a really big Nagash and von Carstein fan in the warhammer lore. I was just watching total war: warhammer videos on the new bloodline updates that come with the vampire coast. I mean, since Nagash do fought alongside the mortal realms at the end times to repel chaos from the world (forget that Mannfred idiot), is it possible for us to get a new hero as a vampire in the game? Even elves can fight alongside dwarves right? Why can’t vampires, like one of the von carsteins, fight alongside men? Emmmm, i guess saltzpyre will become salty on that.
I know there are a few problems in this. First, I really don’t known whether GW allows you to do that since GW could be demanding & strict on content sometimes. Even though it would be a great DLC for halloween, i don’t think it will be on time though. But it will still be a great DLC!.
Here are some ideas about the three classes: blood dragon lords, these are frontline warriors, perhaps a passive skill to allow them to heal in battle? Active ability, maybe to go berserk?
von Carstein vampire overlords: these are like leadership characters, give buffs to allies something like that. This could be the initial character.
Lahmians, these excel at manipulating the enemy, espionage and infiltration. Might be an assassin character, but there are too many assassins in this game. So perhaps a support character that can weaken the enemy or slow them down something like that. Onething is that when people think of lahmian, first impression was like queen Nefarata. I am not really sure but I think all characters that do such infiltration jobs are female in the lore while all blood dragon lords are male. I might be wrong though.
Necromancers, range specialist. Lore wise, not many necromancers are von carsteins, so if start with a von carstein, might not be the choice, also will overlap with sienna for sure.
Strigois, well, these are not lore friendly either since all stigoi give up man form into a ghoul form and have basically not reasoning and definitely do not treat men with good will. And I don’t think that having something just smaller than a chaos spawn in size to fight with you can be well balanced. Perhaps some other classes?
