I cant seem to beat a chaos army. Does anyone have any advice on a list that can beat warriors of chaos. I mostly play 1500 pts.
Is this a particular Chaos Army? If you could post the opponent's list or a brief note on what playstyle he plays it would be greatly appreciated. Posting your list as well might also do the trick.
5000p. High Elves
sure thing, he normally goes for 2-3 units of chaos knights, 2 units of mauradur horses, 2 dog units and a unit of 15 warriors with festus. he also has a hero on steed and sorcerer on disk.
my army consists of a death hag w/ rune of khaine and manbane, 1 sorc w/ lvl2 darkstar cloak and scroll, a master w/ h. armor a shield and the sword of ruin,2 units of 5 darkriders w/ crossbows,2 units of 5 harpies, 2 RBT's, 15 BG, and 5 CoK. Full commands on all units

Is there a certain part of the army that usually dominates your forces? From the looks of it you should be able to control the knights decently easy with RBT's and your own units. Set up a bait for a charge from the knights and have a unit get a flank.
I imagine the hardest part of the army must be that unit of warriors. My advice is to try to ignore them. March block and such to slow their advance down, then once you've dealt with any other threatening part of the army deal with them.
Hope this helps!
thanks it did, the warriors are the hardest part to deal with thanks
No problem, that is one of the most defining parts of a Dark Elf army, its mobility. Also it has some of the best march blocking units, so I suggest you utilize them in this case. Let me know how it goes.
They way i found was best to defeat WoC is to make a unit of black guards with assassin and master in it and asf banner which is like a super unit and challenge his own super unit and give the assasin the poisen that gives double combat rez and challenge his unit champ with it and should score around 4 wounds which gives 8 combat rez
Well this worked for me exept it was on a master in the unit and he rolled 3 1's and 1 killing blow
Dark Elves W/D/L/ 11-3-3
Dwarfs W/D/L 0/1/2
Last game: Dwarfs - Draw
thanks for replies, after victory points i had a minor victory by like 25 points
Congrats!! Did any of the things mentioned end up working for you?
yah the thing with ignoring the warriors did
