A long time ago, I read the story in the Dark Elf book where Malekith and bodyguard hacked through an army to safety. My heart filled with pride.
To be honest, I've had quite a long stint away from the game... after dusting off the book and re-reading that story, as well as my fondness for Abstrudal Vect and his slave *ahem* Dark Kin, I want to go ahead and buy all the funky stuffs. .
Eggs/basket/winning doesn't matter, I wanted a hardass unit in an average game, with the favoured Malekith at it's reigns to re-make that battle on the tabletop. Not that I intend to use it regularly, but if it half works, it may even see the tabletop!
(note: eye bleeders, turn away now)
Malekith, Witch King
BSB w/ Hydra Banner
Manbane + Rune of Khaine
Total: 240 Pts
Ring of Darkness
Total: 195 Pts
Dagger of Dice
Total: 160 Pts
5 Dark Riders
Total: 117 Pts
Total: 141 Pts
(Dagger stab here)
Cold One Chariot
20 Black Guard
Kouran, Musician & Standard w/ Hag McGraef
Total: 391 Pts
Additional hand weapon, Rune of Khaine
Black Lotus, Touch of Death
Total: 171 Pts
Total Army Cost: 2245(?)
(P.S cheers to Zhaf for the layout presentation, saved me a lot of time )
Unbreakable, shooting mods, magic, ASF Cold Ones.... couldn't ask much more of a bodyguard, but I kinda am!
As far as I know, the main problems I will be having against such a unit would be Dragons+Characters/ High US monsters to the non-front facing, aside from having wounds placed on charcters slowly but surely.
Does anyone have any ideas how to go about tooling a list like this, or to keep the trend and try a differnt approach? Malekith is being 'cold-oned' soon, and Mr Sorceror has to be in the list (I love that old model). I tried to work with a Cauldron, but it takes my Hag out of the Guard, I could drop a caster, but ... aaargh it's already coming apart!
Thank You in advance

I would put Mally on the dino, Stupidity has a way of ruining things.
What is your Death Hag doing? Frenzy is bad if she runs off on her own. I'd go for a Cauldron and leave the flag at home, or at least stick it in with the BG.
Needs more Warriors to sacrifice.
Some Dark Riders and/or Shades wouldn't hurt to go after war machines and disrupt the enemy.
A Hydra wouldn't be out of place either.
