    I'm new to the game period and getting the basic feel for it. The friend i'm playing against has an army of Dark Elves and i was wondering what would be a good army to fight against, for a beginner?
    Shas army supposable consist of the following:

    Noble - sdc, ha, 2hw

    Sorceress - extra level; DsC; dark steed.

    20 corsairs - FC, warbanner. (Deployed 7*3 with noble for maximum frontage.)

    5 dark riders - musician.

    5 dark riders - musician.

    10 warrios - RXBs.

    Reaper bolt thrower.

    Total - 997

    advice?

    Ouch, only 1K. That never leaves room for much flexibility, or error. Well, I'd go with the following, maybe someone could notify me if I'm at all wrong. This may also go a bit over on the points, so feel free to slim it down if you must.

    1 Bolt thrower
    Knights and light-armored troops fall equally against its wrath, it can really mess with low-number armies like this one.

    16x spearmen
    Trust me, you need something with a backbone to hold off the D. Knights. A good charge will kill in CC, fortunately, they are not big units (watch for flank charges?)

    10x spearmen
    For backup/support charge

    2 units 5x Silver Helms
    They could be held in the rear to countercharge or attack flanks of engaged foes.

    LV 2 Mage
    Annulian Crystal and Channeller Honor.
    This will limit their casting power, increase your dispell power, and let you cast with an extra dice (esentially a LV3 mage)

    Hero
    Mounted
    Not exactly sure about wargear yet, perhaps something for support in CC. I like the Ring of Fury too, forces your enemy to reserve a few dispell dice each turn, or get fried.


    Obviously kill the little units of knights first. The infantry can be baited and out-manuevered with your cav. Make them come to you if possible, so that you can try and deploy away from the Bolt Thrower.

    You might want to check out the high elf battalion box which is coming out soon. You'll get 16 spears, 16 archers, 8 silver helms and a rbt. Usually works out cheaper that way too.
    The iron crowned is getting closer,
    Swings his hammer down on him,
    Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
    Down the Noldor's proudest king.

    Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
    You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.

    Well since fluff wise, they are the same people, same race, same army, that kind of makes sense. the only difference between the two race wise is dark elves were twisted by hatred / chaos (and promptly tried to wipe the rest of the elves off the face of the earth) where the high elves remained "pure".

    Never thought of that. Didn't like the 90$ lump-sum you have to pay. Would be cheaper though.

    PS: HE and DE were related a few thousand years ago. Not much option when your lightly built with no teeth or claws... :blink:

    Dont Dark Elves get hatered against high elves which allows them to re-roll misses in combat. But atleast the spearman get to fight in 3 ranks

    Is the battalion box out yet? I didn't think it was available, as the new plastic RBT isn't released yet.

    Hatred is re-rolls in the first round of combat only, on the Black Guard have re-rolls every turn (Eternal Hatred).



    The only true and effective way to win with HEs is with Cav, being as he only has fast cav and infantry a Silver Helm force should be able to take them. A cheap commander and mage should do well enough, then as many cav units as you can fit in with maybe great eagles to hunt RBTs/Mages.

    But then I've never played with my HEs yet, so I'm not the best at giving this advice.
