For those who dont know, there is a WHFB votewar running now.
I think voters might not understand the subtle strengths of DE, so its up to you guys who DO know, to get in there & support your kind
Im up against Bretonnians on Wednesday, so drop in then.
That aside, I just wanted to share the list with you anyway
2000 Point Dark Elves. Vote war army
Raiders of Ashen Coast
Noble (General. Rides in chariot): 119
-Heavy armour, Sea dragon cloak, Enchanted shield.
-Seal of Ghrond (+1 dispel dice)
Noble, Battle Standard bearer - 140 (joins spearmen)
-Heavy armour, Sea dragon cloak
-Sword of Might, Talisman of Protection
Sorceress, level 1 - 140 (doesnt join a unit, hides safely in a forest/building etc).
-2x Dispel scrolls
18 Corsairs (6x3) - 230
18 Corsairs (6x3) - 195
20 Spearmen (5x4) - 185 (Battle standard here)
5 Dark Riders - 127 (flankers)
Musician, Repeater crossbows
6 Harpies - 78 (war machine hunters)
Cold one Chariot with spears - 97 (Noble here)
Cold one Chariot with spears - 97 (stays next to Noble for combined charge)
5 Cold One Knights - 172 (flankers)
2 Reaper bolt throwers
TOTAL = 2000
Spearmen in the centre, with Battle standard.
On one side of them would be the War Hydra. On the other side would be the General & his chariot + the other chariot right next to him.
Then the units of Corsairs on each side of those..
This gives me a centre where 3 strong units of infantry all benefit from both the Battle Standard bearer & the General's leadership value, making them very resistant.
The corsairs have sea dragon cloaks (extra +1 to save vs shooting) to keep them safe from archers & magic missiles etc during the advance.
The War Hydra will cause Terror tests to anything that charges the Spearmen, Corsairs or the Hydra itself. Like-wise, the chariots cause fear.
Dark Riders & Cold one Knights will deploy on each flank. Once the centre units have tied up enemies in combat, these units will flank charge if possible.
The Dark riders can also act as march blockers against armies which are fast enough to charge me first. Or bait enemies to charge & then flee, leaving them stranded & exposed to counter charges
Harpies deploy where-ever they can find a path to enemy war machines to slice up the crew, keeping my units safe. If there are no War machines, they will act as a 3rd flanking/march blocking unit, or target small squads of skirmishers etc.
Sorceress is placed somewhere that she cant be easily reached, shot or killed. Keeping my magic defense in tact & denying easy victory points.
Bolt throwers will NEVER deploy next to eachother. I always keep them seperate so that 1 single tactic can never get both of them (so for example, fliers or a burrowing unit can only attack 1, not both).
They will shoot down tough units such as monsters (Giants, Ushabti etc) or well armoured Cavalry & rank-&-file Dwarves etc.
My army will advance quickly, some units reaching the enemy on turn 2 & some on turn 3. The centre units will mostly maintain that original formation to keep all those benefits.
I dont have a lot of magic defence, but it's enough to ward of any major damage while I advance. Once I reach combat, it is less of a problem (wizards are killed or cant see etc). Then I hold an advantage in combat due to the points I save on magic.
Both Chariots will charge units head on at the same time, causing 2D6+2 S5 impact hits + 3 S6 attacks + 7 S4 attacks + fear, enough to crush almost anything.
The Hydra will charge & cause terror tests amongst the enemies centre (at least 1 unit should flee per game).
Sorry if some of the description seems obvious to you guys. It was written so that the general non DE voters could understand the army & how it works, Ive just pasted it all out of wordpad.

Just one quick question, what banner is the BSB taking?
karmoon: cow-man... you really should poke girls with your udder >_<
Dark Elves Record Sheet
W8 D2 L3
His not taking any magic banner, he is just a fighting hero that gives the unit an addition +1 CR bonus.

The list is awesome, it's basically the 2k list I am building (mainly as a result of checking out your previous post on this forum. I hope that this soothes your wounded pride :yes:
The reason I didn't vote was that I wasn't sure of the outcome of such a battle. Your lines may have broken or they may have held. It would be all about the dice. I am not an experienced player, nor have I ever played against Brets. Therefore I abstained.
I think you were very unlucky with the opponent and terrain. On most battlefields you would have won, I am sure. But you are still in the game right?
Rork edit: Woah! Check your spelling - you only give "special chocies" to your girlfriend.
