Ok, the release of the new dunkelelfen is drawing closer and im sure that you all have ben starting to think about what to include.

If you ask me i think my army will include lots of crossairs, a few cold one knights, the almost mandatory noble and sorceress and asuming that they have improved maybe a small unit of black guard and if i can find the points for it a few bolt throwers.

It looks like this would make a rather balanced force with the crossairs giving a decent backbone while the cold ones can chew through tougher units, and the black guard asuming that they are still stubborn will be able to tie up enemy infantery while the sorceress and bolt throwers give ranged suport.

What about you? what do you think you will include?
NOTE: This is not an army list post, just a little speculation on what you think will be usefull :p

Can't tell for sure before the release, but i'm thinking of something, including corsairs, some lord on dragon, RxB warriors (one of my favourite units), witch elves with eternal frenzy, cold ones and RBT. I'll wait for the release to make the final decision though - no more buying until July (?)

I'd like to crowbar in lots of sweet, sweet black guard. Based on what GW did to units like swordmasters (highly elite, but only now become choppy), they're bound to be pretty hardcore.

But as per usual, a new Chaos army has distracted me away from DE (I'm a slow painter), so I'll get around to that next year...

Corsairs for sure, I always wanted multiple units but price was prohibitive. I plan to eighter buy new cool plastic models, or buy all metal models I can before they get phased out, if new plastics prove ugly.

Some elite infrantry -witch elves or executioners - are likely.

i will be starting with a Khaine army.

the plan is:
2x units of 20 WE's
1x COB (of course)
2x units of converted warriors. (capes and hoods so that look assassin-y)
Morathi
and hopefully a new Witch elf hero

First thing I'm getting is a unit of cold one knights. My army desperately needs them right now. Then perhaps corairs, and I'm not sure what else. Depends on what they do with the rest of our units. I might make my witch elf unit a little bigger.

Considering the fact that I've already got one of everything, and two (or more) of most things... I will buy the spearhead, so I can get the new army book and all the new models.

Then I will read the army book and see how GW has changed things. Which units have been nerfed? Which is the new "must have" unit? Have Dark Riders been moved to Special, thereby making my most common army build nearly useless? Are chariots no longer a 2-for-1 choice, ditto? Have witch elves finally become survivable enough that it is feasible to include them in the army?

I'm looking forward to the new Corsairs, from a painting & modelling perspective. I very much want to see the changes to our army. Will we get a lot better, the way HE and VC have, or will we merely be changed, the way O&G and Empire were?

I'd also like to un a cult of khaine army as well. probably 2 units of executioners and witches each, CoB, and warriors. I'd realy like to have them all in white with blood splatered all around and heads lying everywhere. I'd like to base it off of the malus book and maybe even field malus along with them as the scion of Khaine.

Hydra, more corsairs (depending on rules), more DR, and a Dragon.

I plan on using DE with RXBs, DRs with RXBs, Shades with RXBs, probably a noble with Lifetaker, and some solid combat units, Corsairs, Exec, Blackguard, to back all the RXBs up.

I'm very keen on the thought of the new assassin (hide in enemy units) if that is keept, he might be found in quite a few of my armies (if not 3 of them at once :))

I also find it very hard to resist the rumors on the Hag on a manticore with the weapon that doubles her attacks... Thats probably 7 str 4, and 5 str 5 attacks, rerolling to hits. Along with a rank breaking ability... Even a frontal charge against medicore inf is something she should reliably win by 1 or 2 pts... crazy if you ask me.

I'm also looking forward to test a 2nd lvl scroll caddy, with the ability to cast spells with 4 dices, but it depends on the lore. I think it might be worth it, if not going magic heavy, as it seems to get quite a bit stronger...

Beside heroes, I also would like to see corsairs, maybe hydra and CoB...

Do you think that we will be the new RAF? 2 rare manticores, witchelf manticore and a lord on manticore? maybe to make it interesting a sorc lord and a lvl 2 sorc for a decent magic phase. The new Manti sorc will be less of a liability with the hatred, as long as she doesn't have to be in combat more than one turn. And if assassins can hide in enemy units think about a three manti list with 2/3 assassins, jumping up and killing art and any ranged threats along with casters...

The new DE army seems to be getting both competitive, as internally well balanced... At least I can't get all the heroes and lords I want into a 2k game.

Personly I am realy hoping that Malekith gets better (ie less likly to have a heart attack if facing a skink priest) so that I can use him to represent my lord and thereby have a strong magic phase and a lord on a dragon (as fits my army background)

Other than that I will reserve jugment untill I see the list, but I will probobly use more infantry, Corsairs around a core of Black gaurd if they get the rules hike I expect. Plus of course a unit of cold ones.

I already have a unit of just about every option. I didn't get a CoB or a Hydra because I hate the models. If they are redoing the Hydra and if the rumored rules are any indication then I am definitely buying one. For the CoB I want to use the Avatar of Khaine from Forge World and convert it.

With an army fluff already oriented to corsairs, and the possibility to field three different kind of corsairs (present-day, with shields, and with crossbows), I will sure buy two units of them.
Now, if an attractive sorceress comes along with a revamped dark lore, I will definitively buy one as well.
Else... depends heavily on the new rules. I'm curious to verify that many units can come in a number of 5 per unit. That will be awesome for my MSU. So whichever can do that will fit.

I'm thinking of getting another Manti and running a list with a Lord on Dragon and two Manti's. If Hero lvl Sorcs can take DP's, I'll run two lvl 2's on those with it. Also 3 units of DR and a couple units of Harpies for war machines, and maybe Manflayers or a big unit of COK (not stupid!). I think that's a list that would be awfully fun and very effective.

I also plan on getting a HE Dragon and converting it.

I definitely plan on getting a couple boxes of the BAC, dunno if I will get the new CoK tho. I already have 10 of the currents.

I wanna get 5 more BG and Execs depending on rules.

I got 6 harpies, 6 shades, 2 RBTs and one CoC. Figure that is enough.

Almost 50 warriors split between spear and xbows. With my current 22 Corsairs and the new I plan on getting, I will be doing really good with core.

Oh, and I got like 8 DR. I need more.

I kinda think that it's way too early to think about planning anything. We barely have rumors about what we'll get. I would really like to be able to use the units I rarely use.
