Should be fun. Keep in mind that against armies that are largely (or entirely) immune to psychology,(Undead, Deamon, Slaanesh and Khorne Chaos armies go to the front of the list) the Deathmask won't be the best item to kit the Noble with.
But I'd love to see the look on the face of the Greeny player when you reveal the Deathmask

Had to bring this up... it might be more fun to give the Noble w/ Deathmask a Dark Steed and ride with the High Sorc and Dark Riders. It's a lot of points to put in a unit of Fast Cavalry, but it's a highly mobile source of Terror. He probably shouldn't stay in the unit very long, especially against a shooty army, but if you're using the DR's as a shooty unit, he has business closer to the front of the line anyway. If you don't mind charging your DR's, the Sorc might not want to stay in there all game, neither.

Seven DR's (plus possibly a Noble with the Deathmask ) charging, even to the front, should be feared (literally) by most troop-types. A flank charge would be better, of course, but I've found out all too often that the Dark Steeds end up doing the bulk of the killing for the unit. (I've never tried putting any characters with the DR's, so I can't say how much more effective it would be. My latest lists reflect a major change in this.) (My DR units win a lot of combats for me, so I'm not exactly complaining here. ;D I wish I could take a unit of the Steeds themselves... they're mean enough to make it happen, plus I wouldn't be tempted to pay for RXB's..)

Here's the payoff... this option would gives three somewhat mobile sources of fear and one very mobile source of terror. >

alright, a note before I comment: the format you post your armylist is confusing to read, since its just in a line.

Now to comment on the army. As I have mentioned to you before, the high sorceress should DEFINETELY have some protection, like the heartstone of darkness. You're paying 358 points for a 3 wounds model that only has a 6+ armour save for protection, and is T3.

The giant unit of dark riders, I understand your reasoning behind them, but they lose their manouverability. Big time. That is the main thing that they have going for them.

The deathmask is not being used to it's full affect, since it is already in a fearcausing unit.

Other than that, it's looking good.

I dunno, there are situations where this could be very useful.

Especially against a Beasts of Chaos army with mass Ogres/Trolls/Minotaurs/Dragon Ogres, who Cause Fear themselves but aren't otherwise immune to psychology--- in most cases. (Mark of Slaanesh comes to mind, plus attacking Dragon Ogres with a Lightning-based spell. If you do this, you deserve to have a bunch of Frenzied beasties chewing you up.)

It would also prevent the Fear test the COK's would have to take against Terror-causing opponents, such as Giants and Dragons. (Yeah, I can think of thinks I'd rather do than charge my Knights into a Dragon with a bad-a$$ Lord-level character riding it, but it's an example of what you may run into.)

There are times when it would definitely come in handy, I can also see loads of armies it would be mostly useless against.
