Ok i want to design the most competitve list but without using alot of named characters
so far i have:
Sorceress (lore of metal)
Pendant of Khaeleth
Ring of Hotek
2 units of 20 crossbow men with musicain
2 units of 5 dark riders with musicain, shield and crossbows
Perl of Infinite Bleakness
Banner of Murder
20 Black Guard
Banner of Hag Graef
the plan is to have the sorcerrer in 1 of the crossbow men and cast the +1 to hit armour piercing spell and just shoot
the 2 masters and assassin join the black guard
the hydras are distractions which will run up the flank and create as much damage as possible
I have never played dark elves so i have no idea what works and what doesnt so any help wld be much apprciated
Banner of murder on the executioners is pointless. Executioners are already striking at strength 6 causing minus 3 to armour save, which is strong enough to kill most troops without the additional armour piercing bonus granted by the banner.
Banner of Hag Graef on the black guard was good last edition, however with 8th edition rules and striking in initiative order, the only thing striking before black guard will be high elves.
Ring of Hotek was good before it was FAQ'd, now the character carrying it has to be within 12" of the caster to cause a miscast.
Venom sword on the assassin is a lot of points, and for less points you could have a extra hand weapon, +d3 attacks, killing blow assassin which would be much more effective in combat.
I'd also recommend upgrading one of the masters to a BSB. Even though dark elves already have high leadership, the ability to re-roll leadership tests is priceless.
