Hey guys, i'm finally picking up a bunch of dark elf models i found someone selling after loving them when i was a kid but never buying more then a box of old mono pose warriors. I've recently been playing tomb kings, dwarfs and skaven. With the models i'm picking up below is my list i think i will get going with and learn the nuances of dark elves.
armour of darkness
pendent of khaeleth
tome of furion
TOTAL CHARACTERS - 580
20 warriors (1 sorceress)
18 corsairs (dreadlord)
sea serpent banner
10 xbow men (1 sorceress)
5 dark riders
TOTAL CORE: 677
12 witch elves
5 cold one knights
7 executioners (will follow a unit that hits heavy armour and flank)
TOTAL SPECIAL - 363
2 reaper bolt throwers
TOTAL RARE - 375
TOTAL - 1995
Any advice on the list? Other models i have unused are a cauldron of blood, assasin, 7 more witch elves, about 12 more warriors, 4 more xbow men, a black dragon, a dark pegasus and i can pick up more characters if needed. I know this list isn't a powerhouse but is it built well enough to compete in casual games and get a feel for the army? Should the builds be more optimised? Currently i plan on eventually dropping some stuff to add in 15 black guard with ASF and 5 shades with great weapons. I could also straight out swap the corsairs and executioners in the above list for a dragon but i worry my warriors and witch elves will be too slow to keep up....

The list is fine as is. Corsairs and executioners of course a bit weak, but that isn't something that matters unless you are playing against very hard lists.
Since you are running one of the wizards in a block of warriors, it might be worth it to give her the dagger. Power stones are kind of pointless when you have PoD and extra bodies.
I personally don't like the dread lord that much here. He really doesn't hit hard enough to justify his 225 points. He is a bit hard to kill, but not as hard to kill as he could be. I would just go with a master with a pendant and great weapon. At most it should cost around 129, and all you are losing is 1 attack and 1 leadership and 1 WS. As for what you should spend your nearly 100 points on... shades cost 90 for 5 with GW. Or you could shave off some points elsewhere (probably the corsairs) and upgrade one of the wizards to a Supreme sorceress.
