Cheers for taking the time to look at this list.
I have no experience with dark elves, and have only been playing warhammer for like..three weeks, so any help would be great.
I've decided to use dark riders as my core due to being lazy and not wanting to paint loads of warriors!haha...so i've made a list around that..hoping it is fairly competetive..bearing in mind i'll be playing against HE and WoC mostly.
Level 4 sorceress
Pendant of Khaleth
All mundane armour
Whip of Agony
10 dark riders
10 dark riders
5 dark riders
5 Cold one knights
black lotus (use this against HE and manbane against WoC)
6 points shy of 2000
Is there anything i've missed really..or anything that is important to a fast moving army like this?
Thanks in advance
Errata first. The Sorceress isn't allowed to have more than one arcane item. Drop the familiar since range won't be an issue. Also, assassins can only use one type of poison in a game--either the standard poison or whatever you buy.
This list would have been solid in the last edition but not now. No ranks and a low model count, combined with the nerfing of march blocking, will prove disastrous against the large blocks of infantry you can expect to see in every game. The only way I can see all-cavalry working is a Cold One Deathstar, with units of 15-20 Dark Riders with shields and full command instead of crossbows. This isn't something I've playtested and I don't recommend it...but it's all I can think of.
I'm sympathetic over how much time it takes to paint the cheap troops...but, in all honesty, Dark Elves are not a low-model count force. If you're unwilling to do much painting then this isn't the right army for you. Maybe Chaos Knights or Ogres?
