Lo i have just decided to create a new army in fantasy (my last was dwarves) and after a few practis games at GW i have decided to collect a Black Ark Dark elves fleet (including scratch built ships). This army will have no COK, Black Guards or Spearmen. But will be Corsairs heavy including a converted highborn.
wat i was wondering can anyone give me any tips to help decide wat my first 500pts will be.
Im always 2 steps a head and one step behind you!
Your mind is a maze and only you have the map. (I lost mine years ago.)
you already said it. after getting 2 units of corsairs and a highborn, you won't have many points left. I would suggest a reaper bolt thrower and maybe some harpies or fast cav with bolt throwers.
You need at least two core unit for any game up to 2k, so 2 corsairs. you aren't allowed highborns up until 2k, so take a noble.
Really, for a 500pt game take the spearmen. For 500 pts you could have a noble with 70pts extras, 10 RxB men, a scorceress, a RBT and points to spare.
Why blow it on 2 expensive units of corsairs?

ok from my lore of tactics(strike fast and hard with minimal magic) the first 500 pts should be something like
corsairsx15(bump this up to 20 later)
xbows(if points allow)
this should be somewhere around 500 points and will give you a nice starting force to build from.
