2250 Dark Elf Army List
This is the list that i want to build over the summer, since i finished WE, i would like to dip my hand into their darker cousins. the list costs 355 dollars to buy. Would anyone propose a different better list that costs less? if so please tell me.
Lords and Heroes
Cold One- who doesnt like a cold one
Gauntlet of power S 8 no armor saves is always fun, and no one ecpects it
Mystic shield of light 5+ ward save is always nice, making opponents WS 1 is no slouch either
Sea dragon cloak-standard
Banner of Nagarythe- who doesnt like +1 combat res, and unbreakable
Sea dragon cloak-standard
Tome of Furion extra spell is always handy if you dont like your pick
Dispel Scroll- standard
Extra Hand weapon-standard
Man bane great against standard troops
Rune of Khaine who doesnt want an extra attack
Repeater Crossbow- nobody wants 36 shots coming their way from a hill
War banner-standard (combined with the BSB makes for +4 combat res and unbreakable)
Light Armor- youd be suprised how many times ive passed that worthless 6+ save
2 Repeater Bolt Throwers- who doesnt have repeater bolt throwers in there elf army
War Hydra-terror causing, man eating, fire breathing.. you get the point
Power Dice: 4
Dispel Dice: 2
Does anyone have any suggestions. i know that i lack manuverability, but DE cav is very expensive money wise, and they can get trashed really easily. stray cannon shots massacre cold one knights, and just about anything hurts dark riders
Lists should go in the army list section but anywhoo..
-Mystic shield of light wont help him much, he'll strike first most of the time anyway, so the enemies WS wont be reduced to 1 until after he has attacked. He'll also hit most opponents on a 3+ anyway which wont be improved by them being WS1 (this is the thing I hate about WH, you should be able to hit on 2+!!, but anyway).
Opt for the cheaper Enchanted shield, or a mundane shield + Crown of black Iron
Im not a big fan of the Gauntlet either, its rather expensive & overkill in most situations.
A level 2 with a Tome of Furion wont cast anything at 2250 points. 55 points wasted on magic. Just make her a level 1 with 2 scrolls, or 1 scroll & seal of Ghrond.
Assasain in fine.
Those units of spearmen are too small. Merge them into 2 units of 25. Then reduce the crossbow unit to 10, or split it into 2 units of 10.
Probably drop the blood shade, spending points for +1 to hit is a bit wasted when its only a S3 shot.
Rare choices are good.
