    3000 points army I play tested today

    This is an army I toke today VS a chaos warrior's army

    LORDS
    Morathi, heartrender, Focus familiar =525

    HEROS
    Malus Darkblade =275
    Death Hag, Cauldron of blood, battle standard bearer =225

    CORE
    20 Repeater Crossbowmen, Musician, Shields =225
    20 Repeater Crossbowmen, Musician, Shields =225
    20 Repeater Crossbowmen, Musician, Shields =225
    20 Spearmen, Musician, Standard bearer, Lordling =135
    20 Spearmen, Musician, Standard bearer, Lordling =135

    SPECIAL
    9 Cold one Knights, Musician, Standard Bearer, Dread Knight, Banner of murder, =308
    9 Shades =144

    RARE
    2 Reaper Bolt Throwers =200
    2 Reaper Bolt Throwers =200
    1 War Hydra
    =175

    Total = 3000

    The main block held the line with the shades acting as a pain on one flank with a single bolt thower and the cold ones on the other Morarthi was off on her own went up one flank.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    after the game with the army above and I must say Morathi Rocks killed 16 Marauders 5 hounds 2 ogres 5 chaos knights 2 level 2 chaos mages (1 in H2H) and over 25 warriors and did 2 wounds on the giant and making the other 4 ogres WS1 for the hydra to eat and a unit of warriors ws1 next turn for the cold ones to wipe out.

    It was a fun game and I will run this list again.

    The “word of pain” spell then “bladewind” on the same unit does a lot of damage.

    Any one have any ideas to improve it.

    i'd swap out 1 unit of crossbowmen and beef up both spear blocks to 30-ish with War banner etc.

    Apart from that, Banner of Murder is sort of overkill on CoK's who are already S6 on the charge. Turning -3 save into -4 isn't a huge improvement for the cost.

    Otherwise it looks fine.

    i agree with what was said above, but against chaos warriors u need all the armor modifiers u can get. i would personally give them the always strikes first banner, now being able to not only strike first, but possibly being able to reroll to hit is pretty fun.

    You know Dark Elves already have ‘hatred’ to re-roll to hit in the first round of combat ?

    We elves and our bird bones aren't made for combats longer than 1 or 2 rounds. If you need those re-rolls, you were already in trouble my friend. But yea, other than special characters being evil (personal prejudice) manu hit it, not much to change, just a couple tweeks, more spears would be good.

    Thanks for the reply's if it helps the tactic I used on this army works kind of like this
    S = Spearmen X = RXbowmen BT = Bolt Thrower

    Shooting set up

    .BT...BT...XXXXXXXXXX..XXXXXXXXXX..XXXXXXXXXX...BT...BT
    ..............XXXXXXXXXX..XXXXXXXXXX..XXXXXXXXXX

    ............................SSSSS...........SSSSS
    ............................SSSSS...........SSSSS
    ............................SSSSS...........SSSSS
    ............................SSSSS...........SSSSS

    RXbowmen reform for combat and spearman move forward set up

    .BT...BT.....XXXXX.SSSSS.XXXXX.SSSSS.XXXXX.....BT...BT
    ................XXXXX.SSSSS.XXXXX.SSSSS.XXXXX
    ................XXXXX.SSSSS.XXXXX.SSSSS.XXXXX
    ................XXXXX.SSSSS.XXXXX.SSSSS.XXXXX

    This gives me 120 shots then a trick line of 100 elves hopefully this will force enemy units bigger then 5 models to have to charge 2 or more units which I believe should give me +7 combat res before any attacks even start.

    on a side note this set up come to me after reading one of the battles in the malekith book were every 2nd archer stepped 1 space back and to the side letting the spearmen run past to from up, this is the closet I could do to that in game.

    unless I'm missing something, the best SCR you can have without magic banner SCR is 4. Banner and 3 ranks. You only ever get +3 for ranks, no matter how many there are.

    There's no outnumbering any more. In terms of SCR, if you charge, you can have 5 for 3 ranks, banner, charge, with of course more for flank, rear, or downhill charge. So even going to the front, you can start with 6 if you can find a suitable hill, otherwise 5.
