    1400 Campaign Vs. Dark Elves

    Hi Guys,

    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.

    Thanks!

    1200 point list from last week:

    Core:

    5 x Warhounds -- 30 pts

    5 x Warhounds -- 30 pts

    18 x Warriors -- 401 pts
    • FC
    • Halberds
    • Shields
    • Nurge
    • Banner of Rage
    41 x Marauders -- 288 pts
    • Khorne
    • GW
    • Musician
    • Standard
    Rare:

    1x Warshrine -- 150 pts
    • Tzeenthch
    Heroes:

    Chaos Sorcerer (Lore of Fire, in Warrior block) -- 140 pts
    • Level 2
    • Spell Familar
    • Enchanted Shield
    Chaos Sorcerer (Lore or Death, in Warrior block) -- 160 pts
    • Level 3
    • Infernal Puppet

    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.
