Only have a few games of 8th under my belt so I thought I would throw out my current list for a critique. I'm trying to build up a core list that I will be able to tweak for 2250 to 2500 point games. The list works out to about 2350, give or take, so I can add/drop things accordingly.
+Darkstar Cloak (correct me if i'm wrong but I think this gives me +1 dice to dispel as well)
+ Cauldron (suggestions for any cheesy gifts of Khaine other than manbane)
Full command/Shields/ Banner of Murder
+Musician so they can be set up in a gun-line or in a block (maybe shields?)
Full command + Serpent Banner
18X Black Guard
Full Command + Crimson Death
1x Bolt Thrower
Any and all suggestions appreciated guys. How would you tweak this? What units could I pull a few soldiers from? What would you add to this list? I'd like to find a way to add either Dark Riders or Shades (prefer Dark Riders)....But I'm not sure how many DR I want...probably going with 10.
You should get a caster. I'd reduce corsairs. I'd probably take 3 squads of 10 crossbowmen. I like to give them shields and sometimes full commands. I use them to fight when my big block of spearmen get in the fight. Usually for a flank charge. The full command really only benefits them if the bowmen get charged before the spear men, or simultaneously.
If you need more points, you could drop black guard to 15 or so, and im really not a fan of just 1 bolt thrower. I usually like 2 or 0. I suggest taking at least 1 more war hydras, as these are the real big hitters.
Eldar -APOC- 6500 Points
Chaos Daemons -Fate Crusher- 3500 Points
Grey knights - 1000 Points
Darkstar Cloak States "1 Power dice" so no it doesn't give us an extra dispell dice aswel
Also note that the +1PD it gves counts towards the 12 limit but can only be used by its wearer.
Shades work better now as a unit of Dark riders needs to be 10+ strong to be really effective now unless ur plan is just to have them running in circles avoiding combat at all costs.
