Courtesy of Fred Scuttle over on Warseer:

"Hello All.

Take these as they are folks - to be trusted.

The entire army benefits and suffers from all the special rules for the Undead.

Vampires are more than just a character choice. Blood Knights, Black Coaches and the Varghulf are all Vampires and allow
Undead within 6 to March move, reinforcing the sense of the Vampire Counts army.

Corpse Cart:

All friendly units within 6 can benefit from the Always Strike First rule

Can be upgraded to incur a -1 casting penalty on enemy Wizards within 24, or to add 1 to the number of wounds healed by an Invocation of Nehek spell on a unit within 6.

Corpse Carts are a Core unit.

Blood Knights:

Ultimate shock heavy cavalry that will give Khorne Chosen Knights a run for their money: frenzied Vampire knights with three Strength 7 attacks each on the charge

Vampire special rule allows units within 6 to March.

Varghulf:

Bestial vampiric lone monster impressive profile with Regeneration, causes Terror and subject to Hatred of everything!

Vampire special rule allows units within 6 to March

Mannfred von Carstein:

At his most powerful, Mannfred knows all the Necromantic spells and all
those from the Lore of Death

Mounted on a Nightmare, can be used to represent Mannfred the Acolyte or Mannfred Count of Sylvania

Vlad von Carstein:

Powerful warrior and wizard, and almost unkillable with the Carstein Ring
(4+ Ward save and returned to life after death on a 2+)

Will go berserk if Isabella von Carstein is killed

Konrad von Carstein:

Most powerful Hero level warrior-Vampire in the army list

Hates everything, and stands a chance of succumbing to either Frenzy or Stupidity each turn.

Also...

The Corpse Cart has a bound spell (power 3) that will allow friendly units withi 6" to strike first in the next combat, in other words it's a watered down Hellish Vigor which the VC have had for a while now, so...

The Corpse Cart is 75 points, doesn't count towards core requirements, 5+ armor save, Regeneration, 2d6 attacks, S2, T4, 3W, M4.

Ghouls are exactly the same as before, stat line the same, except they don't skirmish and they're undead now. No musicians and no standards is going to suck. They cost 8 points.

Zombies cost 4 points.

Cairn Wraiths are the skirmishing ethereal troops. 50 points per model, minimum unit size is 3, cause terror, M6, 2 wounds, 2 attacks. One model can be upgraded to a Banshee, in which case they lose an attack and gain the Banshee scream.

No skeletal horsemen, but the Black Knights are still around as specials.

Black Coaches are rares, 200 points, no 0-1 requirement.

Ethereal rules remain the same, except they now include an immunity to spells that hinder movement.

KotBK have 1 wound instead of the rumored 2.

Skeletons cost 8 points, but come with shield and light armor. They may be upgraded to have spears.

Oh Lordy, actually I have no clue at to the current crunchiness of the armies. But it sounds like those Blood Knights could actually fight off the bigger tree-crunchies of the Wood Elves.

One thing that I do like about newer books was that they started to give other armies a chance against Skaven again.

A little surprised at the discount on the zombies. Then again the Wood Elf Dryads got a point discount so long as all the armies are getting that in good cores then it should be alright.

Most of all I am really curious how they will handle Necromancy in this book. That spell list has gone through some interesting twists.

Ugh, I want to do an army so bad. The money commitment is just too steep right now though. Perhaps in the summer.
