I'm preparing to play 2000pts against DE and I was wondering if anyone had any particular tips or suggestions. I know I'll be up against a fair amount of shooting- more so than when I play Empire.
DE's give me the most trouble but here's what I found to work.
Maxed out units of core knights with cheep heros leading them, only V. Imp Kt and V. Noble Distain as upgrades.
Get into combat ASAP to lessen the shooting attacks.
Take a Lv 4 with the feedback scroll. It will help against casters that take the reverse ward save item.
Pegasus Knights for warmachine hunting.
Assuming its 75% plus shooting, this should get you started.
Thanks Jacks. Surprisingly, there wasn't a lot of shoot. He had 2 units of 10 crossbows and 1 bolt thrower. The crossbows didn't do much with my armour saves when firing long range and multiple shots. I think I lucked out with the bolt thrower not spearing too many knights before I got into combat. His magic killed me; lvl 4 and a lvl 2. He also had a large unit of Black Guard and guys with 2Handed weapons.
I play Dark Elves, my wife Bretonnians. The games we have are always close, but whilst I can put out a good amount of missile fire, she turns the sky black. I you fight Dark Elves again, I can recommend archery being your key theme. We Dark Elves, unfortunately, make great pin cushions! ;-)
