Can you please stop posting the naked value of things. It is part of the forum rules, please read them.

Besides that, I have never liked list with witch elves, cauldron and executioners. I like the lord but could you not make a budget version master on a dark peg? and have a LVL 4.
I myself would use corsairs for core and black guard and coldone knights for special. I would also drop one of the bolt throwers.

Sadly lucus on this occasion i will have to disagree with you on the corsairs Dark shardes with shields they can shoot and reform to be a tar pit and are by far the best core followed closely by dark riders.

Drop the lord no matter what you do he will still only be toughness 3 take a level 4 thats really a must if you want to be competetive.

On the hag only take the ruin of khaine for extra attackes and the ogre blade bsb witch brew has you at minus 3 LD for frenzy you won't be able to control that and a good opponenant will have you chasing a chalf unit. second point on the cauldren take black guard not witches they benefit most from it really.

I would say at this level the kind of list you would want is

Level 4 sorc i prefer metal for the armour boost for the infantry but dark is pretty good magic tali of pres steed

master peg armour of destiny sea dragon cloak shield lance though i think there is a better cheese build for this guy

Hag ogre blade rune of khaine cauldren

28 black guard is enough to make a horde when put with the cauldren with the razors standard you only need 4 ranks deep as they are stubbon but can add a 5th if you have the points

Dark shardes shields i often take 30 so they are 15 wide 2 deep and if enemy closes 5x6 standard musician banner of flame or gleming pennant

dark riders to finish up core shields spears rbx 2 units of 6 perfect chalf flank guards

5 warlocks to put sorc and a couple of decent spells to be honest at 2 k below i just have 2 units of these for magic.

I would say the last of your points on as big a block of excutioners as possible

hope this helps

I fully agree that dark shards with shields are awesome. I just like corsairs as a melee unit for core due to the 4+ save.
I also agree with most of the rest, although I have never been a fan of the cauldron or Hags at all.
I suppose it is down to taste but I like the idea of a disciplined dark elf army.

I don't like cauldron either but if you gunna use it use it best. Thing is its a standard 4 + and they are only strength 3 there are alot better cc units than corsairs in dark elves like wise don't think you should take range outside core units in dark elves.

Just the better combat units tend to be outside of core.
I may be biased as my army is based on a corsair raiding force.
