Defeat, but there was nothing I could do about it

The VCs have lost the campaign! But considering what has transpired, I don't think I could have done anything to prevent defeat.

Basic strategies:
  • Vampire Counts: With the lack of a lord level character, I was expecting a lot of comets to be thrown my way. My main focus was on spamming Invocations of Nehek to deal with the many Lizardmen area of effect spells.
  • Lizardmen: The whole army was geared for assassination. Everything that could be thrown onto the VC General and his unit, would be. And he had a Slaan to help.
So here is the tempest of spells that I had to weather:
  • 5x Comets of Casandora (1 was dispelled, 2 of them were 12"+ radius)
  • 3x Steal Soul attempts on my General. (All ward saved)
  • 3x Burning Alignments of at least 7" radius. (one of which was during a charge)
  • at least 100 shots from assorted skinks, razordons, falling rocks, etc
Surprisingly, the whole army was still relatively intact until turn 6, at which point the invocations just couldn't keep up. Truth be told, I don't see what I could have done to better my situation aside from sacrificing more chickens to the dice gods.

The Lizardmen have won this campaign. Time to reap the fields of battle and embark on another campaign in the jungles of Lustria.
