I'm currently in a campaign and new to 8th edition. The last game I played was 1200 points (against Empire) and this week we are bumping it up to 1400 points. I am playing the Dark Elves and I'm not terribly familiar with the army. I will post the list I used last game and would appreciate it if you guys could comment on anything that I could change to make me more competitive against the Dark Elves. I'm even open to drastic list changes-- any ideas are welcome.
1200 point list from last week:
5 x Warhounds -- 30 pts
5 x Warhounds -- 30 pts
18 x Warriors -- 401 pts
41 x Marauders -- 288 pts
- Banner of Rage
1x Warshrine -- 150 pts
Chaos Sorcerer (Lore of Fire, in Warrior block) -- 140 pts
Chaos Sorcerer (Lore or Death, in Warrior block) -- 160 pts
- Level 2
- Spell Familar
- Enchanted Shield
Total Points: 1199
- Level 3
- Infernal Puppet
- Favor of the Gods
Hey dude. The 1200pt list looks pretty good as is although I'd consider making one Sorcerer Level 2 with MoT, Blood of Tzeentch and the 3rd eye to steal spells off the enemy casters. The other Sorcerer I'd just make level 1 and give him the Puppet, or dropping him entirely for points to go towards more troops or a monster (Scylla is awesome in small games)
For the new list I'd try and add in another unit. Even if it's an 18 man Marauder unit with flails. 2 Combat units just seems like 1 too few in my book. Some Knights wouldn't be a bad thing if you don't want some more Marauders.
If he has a shooty list those marauders are going to die quick. Might want to upgrade the lvl3 to a lvl4 and get rid of the level 2 - do you find you're using both sorcerers? High armor chaos knights are expensive, but they do well against low strength shooting - they soak up a ton of shots.
Agreed, add knights and lose the marauders against DE, put the nurgle/rage combo on the knights, and you have too much going on with those casters. You could trim some fat there.
