I love my reapers. Maybe they are a tiny bit overpriced but not so much as to reduce their value to some lists. They are no easier to take out that before by any significant margin (unless against poison). They give great long range fire S4 which helps against T5 units like Aboms and can sit deep on...

2: ye divert not by fleeing, but by placing them in a way the charger (see above about having to charge) is in a nasty position after overrun/persue. But this is where the problem comes in. If the opposition don't need to charge they can take the charge from the witch elves and line themselves up t...

Yeah I thought about the executioners instead of the witch elves. I guess I just don't like having the Death Hag model in the Executioners I would much prefer a male model in there. I might change it up but the Witch Elves do kick out incredible combat damage. It depends what I can get painted. Also...

Heavily Comped Dark Elves Big Blocks of Specials 2000pts

Ok guys yet another tournament list to have a look at for you. I have tried to do some things differently from my more recent lists especially as this is a far more limited tournament than a lot of the others. Limits you need to know: 2000pts 35 models with shooting (over 20 inches) 10 Power Dice No...

Well I thought I was out of that one. After a couple of turns I was really feeling up against it. I'm really finding the spears are helping to give me a back up when the original plans were going wrong. The Lord really needs to stay in his unit more often I was taking far too many chances to with hi...

I know you were trying to limit yourself but I think your list would be alot more potent with some blocks of 20 with full command on your spears then the BSB would really add something. If you want more models drop the corsairs. A couple of bolt throwers could give you at least something to do other...

Naked no need to spend extra points on something that can't charge. People rarely charge a Cauldron twice. Recently mine has beaten a plague furnace for two turns running on it's own and killed 10 night runners in one round of combat.

It doesn't affect the character as Skaven Characters wouldn't risk Skavenbrew on themselved just their underlyings whose lives are of course expendable.

The night runners are there from a modeling perspective and to be honest although I wouldn't take them myself if they came up turn 2 a ripped through my shooting it could have made a huge difference. I don't really see the point of your lord combo. Weeping blades avoid the risk of taking half wounds...

I've gone off Dark Riders to be honest they wer pretty rubbish for me at Mersey. I don't mind shades but they don't fit my play style to well I like to put it up them a bit more.

Also why would I want to drop a stupid unit? :lol:

I think that is a pretty good basis of a learning list to be honest. I would only change a couple of things.

SCGT is a 2250 comped event main resitrctions are: 9PD/8DD Pendant counts as a rare. Ring of Hotek counts as 4DD and can't be taken on a champion. Limits on Sh...
