Hi there,

i will field this list on a tournament in january and i would like to hear a few opinions. The idea behind the list is to play a weak fluff list. I cannot win a single battle with overpowered DEs so i play the miniatures i like most...

1 Highborn @ 274 Pts
General; Heavy Armour; Sea Dragon Cloak
Draich of Dark Power [50]
Heart-stone of Darkness [45]
Cold One

1 Noble @ 153 Pts
Heavy Armour; Sea Dragon Cloak; Shield
Sword of Might
Seal of Ghrond
Cold One

1 Sorceress @ 140 Pts
Magic Level 1
Dispel Scroll
Dispel Scroll

10 Warriors @ 120 Pts
Repeating Crossbow; Light Armour; Shield

5 Dark Riders @ 127 Pts
Spear; Repeating Crossbow; Light Armour; Musician

5 Dark Riders @ 127 Pts
Spear; Repeating Crossbow; Light Armour; Musician

10 Witch Elves @ 130 Pts

6 Harpies @ 78 Pts

15 Executioners @ 240 Pts
Standard; Musician, Champion
Banner of Murder [45]

5 Cold One Knights @ 206 Pts
Lance; Heavy Armour; Shield; Standard
War Banner [25]

1 Cauldron of Blood @ 205 Pts

2 Reaper Bolt Thrower @ 200 Pts

The noble will lead the CoK and the highborn will lead the executioners. The rmy should be a khainite cult list and i think i have most units associated with khaine in this army...

what do you think?

A couple of tweeks.

The Dark Riders probably won't need RXB's. At 97 points, they always earn their points back.

There is not enough witch elves to make the couldron worth it. I am not saying drop it, but it is a waste of points with so few WE's.

Everything else seems fine.

Not giving Dark Riders RXB? Wtf?
With RXB they are among the best, if not THE best fast cav in the game!

I don't think your foot-tropps will be able to last very long, sience they are gonna be outnumbered very easily, and aren't able to dish out damage like SM, Chosen warriors and other high-end elite-infantry.

You've putten your trust in your cav, and if they get shot, or stuck in combat for too long, you will be in a very risky situation.

And allso, what Little Aaad said about the couldron I agree with.
