My G/f wants to put togethor an army of mostly or at least with lots of women - witches
Here is what I was thinking
Heroes - Morathi 470
40 witch elves - 520pts (Perhaps add command?)
5 Harpies 65
Cauldron of Blood 205
War Hydra 220
2 Reaper bolt throwers 200
She has 5 dark riders - 130 pts
20 black ark corsairs full command 225
12 RCBs 144 pts
She also is considering a strike force of maybe 8 cold one knights and 2 chariots (2 special slots some 100 point ish hero in Cold one unit for)
That leaves me with around 300 more points to reach 3000
What should I invest the last 300 in?
Was thinking more which elves or more stuff to screen them from missile fire?
She is kind of not that into making army lists so if someone wants to come up with a 3000 point Dark elf army with lots of women in it please do so. It has to have at least 1 RBT, 5DR, 12 RCB, 20 corsairs and 5 harpies as that is what she has so far (also she has morathi but could play as lesser character..)
First of all: dont put witchelves in units of 40! Split them up, and yes, get command. Manbane and other stuff is too good to be passed.
To screen them from missile fire, make maybe a bigger unit of harpies and get some shades. Skirmish units are ideal for screening since they can take up alot of space.
Get something more then morathi too, like a scrollcaddy and maybe a noble to bump up the corsairs.
The standard with a d6" more charge movement is ideal for witchelves, since they are frenzied and will charge anything..
Make a little changes and put up an army list with pointcosts for the units and all that so its easier to add critique.
You know, if your g/f wants an all-female army, it's reallly easy to do with the new Cult of Slaanesh list for Storm of Chaos. You can take Daemonettes and Devotees of Slaanesh (Witch Elves with slightly different rules) as core choices, and your army General must be a Sorceress or High Sorceress. There's also a choice for Mounted Daemonettes as Special, and of course, you can always just pick out the female Dark Elf models from the box set if you want to take Warriors or whatever else.
Just lettin' ya know!
Well, you dont have to use the male fighterheroes and lords models.
You can convert female models like one of the beastmasters into a highbornette or a noblette. (uh? )
Definitly use the SoC list. Devotees of khaine are vicous,everything with WS4 or below(ie,almost every regiment) will hit them on a 5+. Daemonette cavalry rocks. Lore of slannesh rocks. To be honest,theres not much i DONT like about the Dark Elf SLannesh list,to the point of me thinkings its a tad too powerful in some aspects.
