Default Dark Elf List

With the new DE's coming out, I'm going to expand the few DE's I have to a 1000p army.

A quick look and it seemed pretty possible. With buying a Battalion, Army Book and AoW's awesome DE Noble and using 16 unmoddelled DE warriors I think I got a pretty good army. Comments needed.



Heroes:
(1) Noble
- Armour of Darkness
- 95p

Core:
(24) Dark Elf Warriors
- Lordling
- Musician
- Standard Bearer
- (24) Shields
- 217p

(20) Corsairs
- Reaver
- Standard Bearer
- Musician
- 225p

(10) Dark Elf Warriors
- (10) RXB
- 110p

(10) Dark Elf Warriors
- (10) RXB
- 110p

Special:
(5) Cold One Knights
- Dread Knight
- Musician
- Standard Bearer
- 190p

TOTAL: 947p

Gives me 53p spare.. any idea?

Omg Alex. Honestly, drop the whole communist thing... it's just screwed up.

Anyways:

20 RXB? Why? A shooting unit should never expand over 16 IMO. 16, two 8 wide ranks, on a hill. That's serious pinning.

You probably won't win any combats with 12 Spearmen. I suggest you buy a battalion, and combine into this:

2x10 RXBs
24 spearmen (with character in to make total of 25, if they can take magic banner then give them a warbanner... guaranteed CR of 5)
20 Corsairs

You must give up communism. It won't work outside MMO. I would have to say that it does work [glow=green,2,800]INSIDE[/glow] MMOs, but only inside MMOs.

Nice army though, but you need more spearmen.

Exactly! It's a broken system, just look at old Soviet...

Anyway back on topic:

I don't think he needs more spearmen? That looks like a good 1000pts list to me. Corsairs to jump in/flank and win with lots of vicious attacks, spearmen to win through pure CR and fire support.

However:

Your hero honestly looks kind of weak, that armour is good and he won't die easily, true. But look at it this way:
Give him an Cold One so that the Knight's stupidity test will go on a Higher Ld and then give your hero a lance and heavy armour,that'll work fine for 1000pts.
Remove your musician from the Knights, 4 spearmen and you should be able to fit in a Reaper bolt thrower (or at least I think so?).
In that way, you'll have a strong lord, charging in with the Cold One knights, for a total of 9 S6 attacks with Hatred and 6 S4 attacks... that hurts.
You'll have fire support, a good CR unit that'll just charge into combat and win through pure CR (and then having the knights or corsairs flank).

Sounds really good, but the idea was to use only the Battalion and a Noble, with the exception of the 16 DE warriors I already got.

Alright. Well, I think your hero looks weak. Give him a normal shield, cheap magic armor and a good magic weapon. And for those left-over points, press in as many magic banners as you can.
