im kinda new to dark elves and only played some small battles with them. I am used to playing a bretonnian list with some shooting units in it so i made this list for my DE. Some advice would be very welcome.
Sorceress (goes in one of the RXbow units)
tome of furion
Noble (supposed to go in the chariot)
sea dragon cloak
2 hand weapons
reaper bolt thrower
10 dark riders
5 dark riders
my main tactic is to hold the center with shooting and magic and go around the flanks with the cav trying to stay out of the shooting of the enemy
Insomnia always seemed really cool...
Till i got it...
You posted two nearly identical threads, I deleted the other one since it didn't have pretty bold. You can edit your existing threads rather than posting again (look for the edit button on the bottom right of the post).
Here's my thoughts on the list: too shooty.
Combine the infantry into 1 unit of 20 spears.
lose 5 of the dark riders and the unit standard. Dark riders are fast cav. They don't get rank bonus, and most of the static CR should probably be left in the hands of infantry. The fast cav should attack flanks and the rear of the enemy for kills and flank bonuses. With the extra points you could get another chariot or a small unit of harpies.
Hope it helps.

ok well lets strat offwith ur characters, your sorceress cannot have tome of furin and the cloak seeing as they are both arcane items, i'd reccomend giving her the seal of ghrond whih gives u an extra power dice.
also if this is a cav based army give her a dark steed and let her run around some dark riders.
as for your noble again i'd aabuse the fact taht qwith a cheap mundane lance he can up his weak str 3 to a str 5 on the charge if he is in a chariot. also give him an enchanted sheild to get his armour save up.
with your RXB elves in my opinian if your have a cav based army have it all cav based. drop the RXB's altogether. you want your army to consist almost fully of cavelry and with your dark rider units you will have more then enough shooting anywy.
also a single charit alone is good but without support they arnt being used to their best potential so if you have some points stick an extra chariot in there aswell..
just my 2 cents hope it helps
karmoon: cow-man... you really should poke girls with your udder >_<

first off cowman the seal of ghond give the player dispel dice not power dice and the noble has Str 4 not 3
now onto the list
sorc-she cant have to arcane items, so id either drop the tome, or both and replace it with the seal becuase if shes not level 2 then there is no point in giving her more offensive capiblity
Noble- you had the right thought here but i belive that you can put a lance on a chariot nobe if so do it it will give him 3 Str 6 attacks on the charge for like 5 points or something really chea, Also give him a sheild
ok now is when i stop liking the list, you say you want to play a defensive army but you have to static infantry, so my advice would be to dropthe 2 xbow units and take 11 spear unit
Also there is no point to having another rank of DR because they do get ranks i would drop 5 and the standard and add music and xbows
the RBt is good as always =)
with the extra points you could try and get another block of spears or you could get another chariot/RBT i would personaly go with the chariot beacuse 2 in 1k would be nasty.
hope it helped
At 1000 points I would drop the Sorceress all together. The Noble is enough on characters, but you should give him the Seal of Ghrond to give a little more magic defense..
Give the noble a better weapon. A lance + Enchanted shield would be nice since he is in a chariot (+seal of ghrond. heavy armour, sea dragon cloak)
As Koosh said, merge the 2 crossbow units into a unit of 20-25 spearmen with sheilds & standard & musician.
Use the points saved on the Sorceress to get a second chariot to support the Noble.
