    3000pt Malekith himself + his hard-ass crew

    Lately I've just been making up lists for fun. I wanted to make one with Malekith. I decided that 3000 points is the minimum reasonable level to take a character that costs almost 1000pts.. & I decided it would be fun to take advantage of his no 0-1 on Black Guard.. & then, why not give them a battle standard to make them even more immovable!

    LORDS
    Malekith, the big bad boss of badness :yes:

    HEROES:
    (Malekith x3)

    Noble - BSB - 255
    -Heavy armour, Sea dragon cloak
    -Banner of Nagarythe

    CORE:
    5 Dark Riders, musician, crossbows - 127
    5 Dark Riders, musician, crossbows - 127
    5 Dark Riders, musician, crossbows - 127
    10 Crossbows - 110

    SPECIAL:
    6 Harpies
    Cold one Chariot with spears - 97

    RARE:
    17 Black Guard - 307 (BS
    Full command

    24 Black Guard - 405
    -Full command

    24 Black Guard - 405
    -Musician, Standard

    TOTAL = 2997

    The BSB unit has less numbers because they are unbreakable. The other 2 units of Black Guard would go on either side of the BSB unit, making them all Stubborn Ld9, with re-roll break tests, +1 CR, and 1 unbreakable.. nasty.
    Even Grail Knights would have a hard time breaking these units!

    The Harpies would follow Malekith to support him.
    I just wanted to take 4 cheap core choices to fill up the slots, but the Dark Riders will be good for anti-flanking for the Black Guard. And the crossbow shots might help CR a little. But the warriors are mostly there to guard 1 flank of 1 B-Guard unit.

    But Im thinking maybe drop the BanneroN, to give the Noble some magic items to keep him alive. He would still give the Black guard re-rolled break tests, which is enough. At the moment, he could be killed quite easily. It would be cheaper too
    Maybe heartstone of Darkness instead?

    Downside, horribly outnumber.

    Cheers

    god. this is a list that ive been waiting for. its damn near hard to pull off against horde armies but is very fun to play. Just have Makaieth and the harpies go after warmachines and flanks, while the black guard just move up the middle. then your riders will move forward protecting the flanks and shooting their crossbows.

    Yeah, it also wouldnt work against magic heavy armies. Only 4 dispel dice. Im sure theres some armies that could have around 20 power dice at 3000 points :ninja:

    The unbreakable is from the BSB right? So why can't the BSB's unit just be spearmen or something, to save some points? You might be able to field an extra chariot then.

    True but its partly because it fits the theme of Malekiths personal guard. Like, THE army of Naggaroth, best of the best etc.
    Plus the BSB is still only T3, 2 wounds, 5+ save. Easy to kill. Then Im left with weaker spearmen, where as 17 Black Guard are still formidable.

    I was considering dropping the unbreakable banner though, to make the BSB more survivable. This would also add weight to keeping his unit as black guard.

    This is only a hypothetical list though, I wont be making it.
    Cheers for the input
