So, I've got two possible lists. They're very similar, bar one includes sorceress' (two level 2s), and the other spends those points on other stuff. Both are fast, hitty and hard to get to grips with; the plan is hold them in place with the giant (Ld 10 Stubborn), or the fast stuff, then smash them to bits with chariots.

Which do you think is better, and (more importantly) why?

I'm leaning towards the first. The lack of magic is an issue, but I've beaten a 14pd Tzeench deamon army with my only magic defence being only 3dd, so I'm not too bothered.
