I love monsters, it's one reason I'm considering starting a dark elf army. So how does this list sound, is it viable? Competitive? Critics welcome please.

hey i like the idea around your list but i have some opinions on how to make it better. first off your core, you could take 2 units of 25 warriors both full com and one with the warbanner 10crossbowmen with musician and have enough points left to take 5darkriders with bows/musician or a small unit of 10 corsairs maybe with handbows cause u can move um right in someones face and let off 20shots then let them either move around u or they charge and u stand and shoot with another 20shots b4 u even get into combat.but alot of ppl dont like big units of corsairs they are str3 toughness 3 which isnt really worth the points imo.warriors are cheaper and fight 3ranks and give u nice combat res in this list. just duel charge with your dragon/coks/chariots in the flanks and your gonna clean up.that core came to 627total. ok onto the heroes, dread lord is perfect,but you need more survivability on your bsb so i changed it to "master,bsb,lance,manticore,shield,sdc,and obsidian armour from the brb.that gives him a 2+armour save 1+against shooting and a 4+ward save.the sorceress is fine maybe get her a dispell scroll, but plain is fine too.put her in the crossbow unit.that comes to 1045for heroes and then rare is good at 350 points now the special is the hard part i like the chariot and i would do the COKs 6 full command with ring of hotek and maybe standard of slaughter.but if your going for a monster heavy list you gotta take the ring cause of your lack of magic res just keep your knights near the bulk of your army and maybe put your crossbows with the sorceress on one of the far flanks to keep her out of the 12" bubble range.now the prob is fitting a good unit of executioners in the list.i would run a unit of 18 6wide full com but theres only 151 points left so u could do a small unit of them 12 6wide but i think you would do better getting another chariot or 1 bolt thrower to sit next to your crossbowmen then with the 51 points left get either some magic items for your sorceress or even put her on a pegasus since it goes with the list,or just the standard of slaughter on the coks and get another 1 crossbowmen and i quess gaurdsmens that would put u either way at 2499 hope this helped a bit i might build this army at a later time too it looks really fun.just make sure to try and take out the enemys mages asap.good luck
I would take a champ on the X-bows to protect the sorceress and BS is just that little more cost-effective.
Hey everyone, just wanted to say thank you for the advice, I've taking it into consideration and made many changes to my list
Could you post an update of your list? I'm curious how it turned out.
