Here's an idea I just had, a more defensive style list.
Supreme Sorceress-level 4, 3 Null Talismans, Sacrificial Dagger
Sorceress-level 2, darkstar cloak, dispel scroll, dark steed
Master-BSB, Pendant of Khaleth, Sword of Might, heavy armor, sdc, shield, dark steed
18 Corsairs, full command, Sea Serpent Standard
29 Warriors, lordling
5 DRs, crossbows, musician
Assassin w/ 2hw, Rune of Khaine, Manbane
5 COKs, musician
6 Shades, great weapons, bloodshade
This one is more of a magical gunline style. I sit there slinging spells and arrows while the DRs and Shades run interference. The BSB will run around hunting monsters and such, while the Hydras and COKs counter attack.
Nice list for what you want to accomplish. I only have one comment. The sea serpent standard Could screw you over. I usually field a frenzy unit in the center with 2 other infantry units next to it. So it can only be redirected in the way I want to go. But with it might be tricky to avoid this with your list.
Still think the list works as it is, it just caught my attention.
I thought about that too, but I intend to keep them back to prevent anything stupid from happening. I could drop the Bloodshade and 4 Corsairs (going 7 wide) to pick up 5 Harpies to keep them from doing something stupid. Banner of Murder could work too.
a couple of questions out of interest. How does the BSB do for you? where do you put him? Don't you worry about losing the BSB to a ranked unit or does he only go after war-machine hunters and fast cav, etc.
Why no command on the warrior unit?
Does the Bloodshade really payoff?
Does the Assassin really work? I've only fielded one once and he was terrible (couldn't hit anything or wound anything, even with rerolls) Does he play bodyguard or run with the shades?
The BSB is there to challenge big nasties like Bloodthirsters and Dragon lords. He has the pendant and decent armor so most things will bounce off and the extra CR keeps him from auto-breaking thanks to outnumber. War machines and fast cav are other priority targets.
The Warriors are fodder, first and foremost. I have the lordling for challenges.
I've got the Bloodshade because I can't fit another Shade in there
The Assassin runs with the Corsairs and rocks face. 5+D3 attacks that always wound on a 3+ is a very nasty surprise for a unit that normally has problems with armor.
