Many Vampire Lords see undead dragons as the only mounts worthy to bear them into battle. Sitting astride these cadaverous monsters, they soar into the fray, hacking and slicing with wicked blades or spitting helpless victims upon their great lances. Those not slain by the Vampire rider are crushed and torn apart by its steed, or withered to nothing by the creature’s pestilential breath.

A Vampire Lord on Zombie Dragon is a single model. Many of these Vampire Lords wield a Deathlance for maximum damage on the charge, whilst others slash their foes with a Vampiric Sword. Some carry an Ancient Shield emblazoned with dark heraldry, and a few also bear a Chalice of Blood. Each is mounted on a cadaverous Zombie Dragon which rips apart its foes with its Sword-like Claws and fanged Maw, and its Pestilential Breath can strip flesh from bone.
Vampire Lords on Zombie Dragons can fly
Roll a dice when you attack with the Zombie Dragon’s Pestilential Breath. If the result is equal to or less than the number of models in the target unit, the attack scores a hit without needing to make a hit roll
At the end of any combat phase
in which this model slew any enemy models, you can heal
1 wound that has been allocated to this model.
If this model completed a charge
this turn, increase the Damage characteristic of its Deathlance to 3.
A model with an Ancient Shield has a Save characteristic of 3+.
Chalice of Blood:
If this model has a Chalice of Blood, then once per battle in your hero phase
, you can heal
D6 wounds that have been allocated to it.
At the start of your hero phase
, pick up to 3 different friendly SUMMONABLE
units within 12" of this model. You can heal
D3 wounds that have been allocated to each unit you picked (roll separately for each unit). If no wounds are currently allocated to a unit you have picked, you may instead return a number of slain models
to it that have a combined Wounds characteristic equal to or less than the roll of a D3.
A Vampire Lord on Zombie Dragon is a WIZARD
. He can attempt to cast
one spell in your hero phase
, and attempt to unbind
one spell in the enemy hero phase. He knows the Arcane Bolt
, Mystic Shield
and Blood Boil
Blood Boil: The Vampire Lord utters a curse that causes his foe’s blood to boil in their veins.
Blood Boil has a casting value
of 6. If successfully cast, pick an enemy unit within 18" of the caster that is visible to them. That unit suffers a mortal wound
. If a model was allocated any wounds caused by this spell but was not slain, roll another dice. On a 4+ that model suffers another mortal wound. If the model is still not slain, roll another dice. It will suffer another mortal wound on a 4+. Keep rolling dice in this way until either the model is slain or you fail to cause a mortal wound.
If this model uses this ability, pick a friendly DEATH unit within 15" of it. Until your next hero phase
, you can re-roll failed hit rolls
for that unit.
