    Black Guards
    10* 16 whit Musician, standard bearer and master that = 195 points

    Bolt thrower
    100 points

    what should a taker next? Warriors? or a Chariot? or dose the Black Guards cost to muck?

    You should scrap this and go with Dark Riders with RxB, and some other core stuff.

    If you are playing standard games you need 2 cores and a character in 500 points. you won't have enough left with the stuff you have now.

    I'd say:
    5 dark riders, musician, RxB
    5 dark riders, musician, RxB
    Noble
    Bolt Thrower, and something else probably.

    1 level 2 sorceress,
    15 spearmen with shields & standard
    10 RxB warriors
    5 Dark riders with crossbows

    Thats a fairly decent 500 pt DE list. 500 is way too low to take an effective offensive army, so you need to go defensive (stand & shoot), and this is probably about the best you can do in that regard.

    I'd also say aim for 600 points so you can take a Reaper bolt thrower too.

    Cheers

    well it depends on who you play, taking that many dark riders would be a disaster v a skink or undead army. against other elves or humans or even orcs its a good choice, but i would do this

    noble=84
    heavy armor,halberd,SDC

    warriorsx11=88
    shields

    warriorsx10=110
    xbows

    darkridersx5=120 (i think its right, no book)
    xbows

    boltthrower


    ok this list has your speed, alot of shooting, and a defensive small block to take on whats left of your boltthrower/xbow fire, and a noble with str 5. hope you like this list

    xbows

    darkridersx5=120 (i think its right, no book)
    xbows

    well if you want a sorc, take out a warrior and put in 1 sorc, but i wouldnt do that cause in 500pts if he fields a sorc to then your 2DS + 1 for your sorc he isnt getting magic off same for you. just his 2DS would stop a lvl 1
