Vampire Counts warmaster without GW miniatures

Warmaster is a great ruleset for large scale fantasy battles. As such, the fact that GW has stopped producing 10mm miniatures shouldn’t stop existing or new fans from playing the game. And even with ebay prices getting out of control (especially for the more exotic races of the game) there are many providers of 10mm fantasy and historical miniatures to help you collect your new warmaster army.

Below we try to list some of the the options available for the Vampire Counts army based on the warmaster troop types.

Skeletons
Kallistra Skeleton Warriors (301)
Magister Militum Skeletons with Hand Weapons (FSK001)
Magister Militum Skeletons with Spears (FSK002)

Zombies
Kallistra Zombie horde (307)

Ghouls
Pendraken mixed ghouls (AC24)

Grave Guard
Have not found anything that is perfectly suitable.
You basically need a way to distinguish from standard skeleton units.
So I am looking for either heavily armoured skeletons or perhaps using dismounted knights and converting/painting them as undead.

Ethereal Host
Kallistra Tormented Spirits (308)

Black Knights
Ideally we would have some heavily armored undead knights. Until then the standard Skeleton Cavalry from Kallistra could be used:
Kallistra Skeleton Cavalry 302
Or just use any medieval knights from historicals and paint it in an undead scheme?

Dire Wolves
Copplestone Castings Giant wolves (TM8)

Fell Bats
Pendraken Swarm of Bats (AC12)
Chariot 15mm Swarm of Bats (GOB02)

Vampire Lord General
Copplestone Castings Evil Characters (TM9)

Vampire Hero
Copplestone Castings Evil Characters (TM9)

Necromancer
Copplestone Castings Evil Characters (TM9)

Winged Nightmare
Copplestone Castings Evil Characters (TM9)
15mm.co.uk Wraith Lord on Fell Beast (HOT74) just use the Fell Beast.
Splindered Light Minis 15mm Skeleton Griffins – add your own rider.
Perhaps there are many other 15-28mm options for this. Feel free to add your comment.

    Great list! Everything works great except for the black coach. But with some work it’ll be fine to.
