    Just need a helping hand

    Hey guys, as you can see from my name, i'm not the most familiar to Fantasy.
    I don't have the big red book, but i've picked up a few things along the way through store games etc.

    I had a very shoddy and bad old rules Dark Elves Army, with the horrible looking cold ones, and when the new rules came out, i just shunned them into the back of my shelf to focus completely on 40k.

    I just recently bought myself a new Dark Elves Army Book and i'm trying to write a 3k army list. Please give me tips and a helping hand in making an effective army list. Here's what i've put together so far:

    Lords

    Dreadlord XXpts (w/Cold One Knights)
    Sea Dragon Cloak +6pts
    Blood Armour +15pts
    Pendant of Khaeleth +35pts
    Sword of Might +15pts
    Dagger of Hotek +30pts
    Cold One Mount +30pts

    Supreme Sorceress XXpts (w/Black Guard)
    Level 4 +XXpts
    Darkstar Cloak +XXpts
    Tome of Furion +XXpts
    Ring of Darkness +XXpts

    Heroes

    Sorceress XXpts (w/ Warriors Block)
    Level 2 +XXpts
    Dispel Scroll+XXpts
    Sacrificial Dagger +XXpts

    Sorceress XXpts (w/Warriors Block)
    Level 2 +XXpts
    Dispel Scroll +XXpts
    Sacrificial Dagger +XXpts

    Death Hag XXpts (w/Executioners)
    BSB +XXpts
    Standard of Hag Graef +XXpts (ASF Executioners)

    Core

    20 Warriors XXpts
    Full Command +XXpts
    Shields +XXpts

    20 Warriors XXpts
    Full Command +XXpts
    Shields +XXpts

    16 Repeater Crossbowmen XXpts
    Shields +XXpts
    Guard Master +XXpts

    18 Corsairs XXpts (6x3)
    Full Command +XXpts
    Sea Serpent Standard +XXpts

    Special

    5 Shades XXpts
    Bloodshade +XXpts
    Great Weapons +XXpts

    20 Executioners XXpts
    Full Command +XXpts

    5 Cold One Knights XXpts
    Full Command +XXpts

    12 Black Guard XXpts (6x2)
    Full Command +XXpts
    Banner of Murder +XXpts

    Rare

    I'd change the death hag to a master personally due to the death hag being subject to frenzy and having no armour saves to protect her. Where as the Master can be upgraded to have heavy armour sheild and seadragon cloak for 8 points.

    Also, Drop The corsairs for Dark Riders If you can dark riders are as i call them herders flanking the opposition and setting up charges whilst shooting at bits and peices if given hand bows

    5 with full command and hand bows come to 145

    but yeah thats my thoughts on it

    I agree with the above, but there is one problem. Your dreadlord is illegal. He has two magic weapons, so you are going to have to choose between one of them.

    Valdy you legend!

    Thanks for pointing that out for me mate!

    Okay, i'll drop the corsairs, good idea, but i don't think that my dreadlord will be very successful at killing things. What combination of stuff do you guys suggest??

    Have a good one,

    Tomo

    It depends what you want your dreadlord to do...
    To kill characters heres some ideas
    Dreadlord with Potion of Strength, Hydra Blade, Heavy Armour, Shield
    Dreadlord with Dagger of Hotek, Armour of Darkness, on a Dark Steed

    For light troops
    Dreadlord with Black Dragon Egg, Hydra Blade Heavy Armour, Shield

    Or heavy troops
    Dreadlord with Chillblade, Shield of Ghrond, Heavy armour
    Dreadlord with Great weapon, Armour of Darkness, Black Amulet

    But alot of people just play around with combos till they find one that fits with their army

    Thanks heaps pricless.

    I think i'd like my character to be able to take out light and heavy troops, so i'll try and come up with a combination for that.

    Thanks again,

    Tomo
