I've been playing for a while but never really played outside of my group of friends and kinda want to check out the tournament scene
Hows this look? Please give me your thoughts
Dreadlord-Deathpiercer, Pendant of Khaeleth, Heavy Armor, Shield, Sea Dragon Cloak, Cold One 245
Master -Null Talisman (1), ahw, Heavy armor, Sea Dragon Cloak, rxb, Dark Steed 129
Sorceress- lv2 Focus Familia,r Power Stone 180
5 Dark Riders rxb musician 122
10 rxbmen shields 110
14 spear elves full command shields 113
Assassin Rending stars Manbane 151
Assassin ahw Rune of Khaine Touch of Death 151
10 Black Guard w/fc Ring of Hotek standard of Hag Grief 225
5 Shades w/gw and light armor 120
5 CoK fc 175
The Plan is to centralize the Black Guard so that the ring of Hotek covers as many units as possible and sit the Sorceress in the rxb to one side so she can use her familiar to cast while still under the ring of Hotek
The shades and the melee assassin will attempt to engage as soon as possible covered by the Dark Riders who have the Master so that when they get magiced they will have a little protection mine always fall prey to a magic missle
The spearelves will sit 7 abreast and sit to the weaker side to protect my flanks
The CoK and the Dreadlord will charge anything that approaches hopefully in conjunction with spear elves and the Black Guard will take any elite's that come
The Hydra will target other big things and hopefully decimate and light regiments it comes across
The other assassin with rending stars will accompany the spearelves and use his stars to auto kill chariots and harm anything else that has high toughness
Im still a little worried that I dont have enough magic protection but unless there casting a lot of bound spells or have a lot of weak spells the ring tends to f*** s*** up the Black Guard are amazing and can even see swordmasters off with ease. I will need to use my units in conjunction because none of them have enough ranks to really rack up bonuses. The assassins should kill their targets with ease and with one having 5-7 poisoned killing blow attacks should be able to kill high profile targets. I usaully deploy my rxb 10 wide with no ranks is this a good idea they can always reform if trouble comes my way.

At 2k a single Lvl 2 wizard will get absolutely nothing off in a tourney setting.
What in the world is going on with that understrength warrior block? Warriors are meant for static res. Assuming a character is in the unit, the best that block can muster is a +3. That won't beat anything. If it is an assassin, then you might win by a small margin, but you need to win by quite a bit to get the break. Bump it up to 20-25 or don't take them.
Armor on shades is a waste of points. A 6+ won't save them against much of anything. A finger save is only nice when you don't have to pay for it.
Same thing goes for shields on the warriors. If they are getting shot at, it is probably at a decent minus, or there is a large enough volume for the 5+ to not matter. If they are in combat, the are going to lose, why throw away the extra points?
Full command on a minimum sized CoKs block is pointless. Static res doesn't matter when the best you can muster is 1 and break a tie. You win with them by generating kills, and flanking the enemy. A banner and musician do not help with this, and cost as much as an entire knight. The champ is too expensive, and should only be taken if you are wanting a magic item he can hold. If you have the points, ONE static res upgrade might be appropriate.
Your Dreadlord isn't a very good build. Death piercer is pretty expensive for KB. I would look into some better builds, the one you have can almost be a master's, but much cheaper.
If you need more magic defense against bound items, a SS in place of the DL, (you can still have a master as general) and seal of ghrond on the master is the best option. Adding a scroll couldn't hurt either.
Overall the list suffers from too many upgrades and not enough bodies.
If you are interested, I can give you an optimized version of this list.
Thanks a lot partly the unit of 14 was because i was too lazy to get more models but yeah im gonna. Ill definitely send you an email with a revised list on it and will also post the revised list here
