Default Calling all dark elf players!



Im now ready to start my army....i have the option of buying cheap (45 for the lot) - 16 spearmen, 16rxbmen, 1 manticore, 1 sorceress on dark rider, 1 RBT, 1 Chariot... Could you advise me on what models are worth it (i will stop at 3000pts)

im not totally sure all these models would be useful. An ideal 2000pt list at the moment would look like this for me -

Lvl 2 Sorceress, Dark Rider, Seal of Ghrond
Lvl 2 Sorceress, Dark Rider, Dark Star Cloak

5 Dark Riders, Crossbows, Musician
5 Dark Riders, Crossbows, Musician
16 Corsairs, Full Command, War Banner
12 Warriors, Crossbows, Shields, Musician

2 Cold One Chariots with spears
5 Cold One Knights, Full Command
5 Cold One knights, Full Command
9 Shades

2 Reaper Bolt Throwers

Umm... ease up the abbreviations, it would help.

Overall, the list seems to lack shooting. Consider a Reaper Bolt Thrower, or some Repeater Crossbowmen.

I think it looks pretty solid. as long as your cold ones dont get bogged down with shooting.....and watch out for cannons, theyre stinky little bugers.

Overall I like it. and youve got plenty of shooting with 10 dark riders, 12 xbows, 9 shades,+2 bolt throwers.....if you shoot 6 times with each bolt thrower thats like..................mmmmmmmmmmm........74 xbow shots......thats a s**t load of xbow bolts eeesh

Taking cold one knights is a fat risk - chariot's do as much damage, are cheaper and if are destroyed who care's! their cheaper!

But since you've already got two, stock up on some bigger or more core troops. Right now a decent zap of magic or shooting and your coldone knights are down and dead, leaving your cross bows, reaper bolt thrower's looking pretty vunerable

personally i think its a fantastic army. plenty of shooters(coming from the WE)
lots of fast attackers. and bolt throwers. only thing it could be lacking is strength. sure the bolt thrower has some but is just seems a lil weak to me. mabye a hydra or somthing can help. wait you got corsairs....well it's not all that bad then.

all in all. good list. 8/10

maticore is pretty awsome i would take him. it's esspecially good to use them on weak and easily scared troops like goblins and skavenslaves. then watch the little one run. 8)
