Personally I would drop a unit of harpies and the small unit of dark riders for another unit of CoK or two chariots. You have some decent punch, but I would like to see more. Sadly he would not be able to do that and meet the minimum 3 core unit requirements. All the DR have to stay as our Harpies ...

A very comprehensive run-through of WE and very valuable. It even tempted me to try out a Hellebron/WE/Khainite list with multiple units of 7 WE. WHile they did not do a lot of damage, they served as wonderful re-directors of Chaos Knights! I managed to send a Khornate Exalted BSB off to the corner ...

Welcome and good luck with the list!

However, please remove the point costs of individual items from the lists. Stating the entire cost of a unit is fine (like you have done with DR and Shades).

For me, I used Lokhir Fellheart in a unit of frenzied corsairs against VC and they took on the Grave Guard initially before getting help from the Hydra and Dark Riders. His rerolls to wound and an extra attack is good against a ranked up block of skeletons or whatever. Malekith isn't bad and he did ...

First of all, welcome to the wonderful world of DE! I might suggest that the caddy sorceress be dropped down to level 1, as she appears to be ther eonly for the scrolls and the extra level seems like a bit of overkill. Also, all sorceresses are able to use PoD spell regardless of the lore taken. Tha...

And the less complicated it is, the easier it is to play and games go smoother and faster. A good game is a fast game.

Naturally we are all hoping that the DE FAQ doesn't have any of these errors in it also!

Just on saturday my Hydra initially went into a block of 12 White Lions with my Corsairs in support and were held up by the Stubborn rule. In came a BSB on Tiranoc Chariot with Banner of Balance, and 5 Swordmasters into the Hydras flank. Not only did the Hydra not take a single wound (due to some po...

Just a thought, for a nice 15pts the Banner of Cold-Blood could go on one of the 2 CoK units that have no magical standard to help mitigate the effects of stupidity a bit further. Not sure exactly where you could pinch the points from, but I would start by taking the shields off the Riders. Personal...

Hi All, I am taking part in a long awaited grudge match this coming weekend against our squeaky-clean cousins and have come up with the following list. Any thoughts and crtitiques welcome! Master - Armour of Darkness, great weapon (109) (in Black Guard) Master - Caledor's Bane, HA, shield, SDC, Dark...

Ok, I have had a while to review the list and fill it out a bit more to bring it up to exactly 2500 points. With 2 Hydras, a master in chariot, solid unit of CoK and the Black Guard I have a decent amount of tough, close combat troops now backed up by even more magic. I decided to ditch the Ring of ...

Well, we have an update. The points limit has now gone up to 2500, so I have another 250 points to play around with. Options could be: - a second hydra and some more troops - another block of combat infantry - another unit of Cold one knights - two small blocks of RxB troops All seem like reasonable...

List looks pretty good, Lokhir is a cool character and pretty tough. I have been looking for a way to squeeze him in a list of mine. However, I think that putting a standard at all (let alone a magic one) in a unit of 10 corsairs might be just giving your opponent 100VP. On a bigger block, I would s...

Thanks Acumenth, I do hate that the dragon has less effect against both these armies, and I am sure I could use my Dark Elf-themed HE dragon miniature as a pseudo-manticore (I don't have the manti mini). Shooting could be good against Daemons due to their low T, but the armour piercing has no effect...

Yes, it has worked out rather well that my 3 most active warhammer opponents and I had our new books in sequence! I have a game booked vs Daemons for Aug 16th, so have until then to come up with my list. Thanks for those pointers. I think on reflection it is probably too character-heavy with essenti...
