supreme sorceress lvl 4,talisman of preservation
master,bsb,pendant of khaeleth,blood armour,halberd,shield
29x warriors,shields,full com.
19x crossbowmen,shields,full com.
5x dark riders,musician,repeater crossbows
20x black guard,full com.
1x war hydra
this is a new set up for my master bsb dont ask about the shield its only there cause i had 2 points left.but he will be nice for his points later in game he will have a 1+ save until then pendant will save him plus hes str5! hard to kill for a bsb cant do much better than that. any suggestions on how to take this to 2k though. i have 20corsairs,another hydra,10wars,10 coks,lord on cold one,foot master,sorceress foot and mounted.ill prolly take a lvl2 and some items for both sorceresses but other than that i cant decide what to take might buy some bolt throwers
The only problem is that your BSB cannot have any magic items other than the banner. I would use the extra points to give your black guard a crimson death, and bulk up on mundane armour for your bsb
thx for the post but your wrong your bsb can have magic items as long as he doesnt take a magic banner recheck your book.and crimson would be nice ill need to free up some points some where.maybe go down to 18 black gaurd that would free up the points
Crimson Death is a nice addition for Black Guard (I myself give it to a champion quite often), but for those 25pts you would be better served by a Magic Banner, such as the Banner of Murder.
At the minute your list is more or less fine. A unit of 19 Crossbowmen is good, but (I'm assuming they'll be 10 wide) they tend to be unwieldy. 2 units of 10 are more maneuverable and allow you to split your fire, rather than being restricted to shooting at the one target. They both have pros and cons. I personally prefer units of 10 as I tend to use my Crossbowmen units like detachments, although I did use a unit of 38 just for giggles (76 shots.....)

Yes apparently i've been misreading that BSB rule forever now. Thanks for the correction!
