I'm a long term Dark elf player but new to the latest edition of warhammer and all the new books. I have played only 1 match this edition which i drew (and would have surely lost if not for the hydra!). So I have read my book a few times, painted my models and test fought units and come up with this. Any feedback is appreciated!
Dreadlord, Black Dragon, S.drag cloak, repeater crossbow.
Death Piercer, Armour of eternal Servitude, Pendant of Khaeleth.
Master, Cold One, S.drag cloak, repeater crossbow.
Ring of Hotek, Crimson Death.
2x Disp scroll
10 Fodder... I mean Warriors
19 Corsairs, command, War Banner, Handbow on Reaver.
5 Dark Riders, Herald, Repeater crossbows.
6 Cold One Knights, Command.
Null Talisman, Banner of Murder.
Assassin, 2x H.weapons, Touch of Death, Rune of Khaine, Black Lotus.
Exactly 2,000 points and my second army list written from the new book
(went a bit ott with magic on my first list!)
You have some good hammer units in there but not really anything to hold things in place for the flank-charge except maybe the Hydra. I would like to see either a big block of warriors or a BG unit, something to be able to take a charge or hold for a round or two so you can flank. Easiest way I see to do that is drop the Assassin for the BG, or just beef up the warrior block you already have to 20-25 with command.
Thanks for the advice, the assassins purpose was actually go with the shades a pick off loose casters or war machine crews by leaving the unit or using them as a shield. But your right, the corsairs could tie up things a while but better not to have just 1 unit for that role. The geared up assassin comes to 171 points, meaning i could only get a unit of 10 BG /w command. But the warriors I already have can go upto 31 strong with shields and command (being 1 point over i could just drop a repeater crossbow from a master and make it 32 strong and 1 point under)
I will be using the list in 3 weeks time, you think the 10 BG /w command is a better option than enlarging the wars and adding shields?
