Spearmen go in the middle as tarpit with BSB and Sorceress. Assassin goes scouting with shades to wreak havoc. Shadowblade just happens to materialize next to the general/ most expensive character and goes choppy-choppy. Chariots either sprint down a flank for combo charges and Dark riders generally just be annoying w/ flanks, bait and flees. RBT goes after big monsters and cavalry.

Do people just not like DE, or do they just not like shadowblade, or is it not just an interesting list?

Shadowblade is highly, highly, highly unfair. I like the idea of him, but he's an assured 500+ victory points for the Dark Elf player and that is precisely why he is not a currently legal Character.

I would make it more universal, by adding a second Sorceress and using Steed of Shadows etc to get the Assassin where he needs to be.

for friendly games shadow blade should be ok

i believe shadowblade is legal, just in a WD rather than the DE book.

can you get rxb's on your dr(i know they are overcosted), at the moment perhaps the enmy will just ignore them? esp if you have nothing to set up a combo charge, unless you go agressive with the spears, otherwise they will bouce of anyhting vaugly tough. i love the chariots but they are quite unreliable. i doubt they will be near shadowblade so will be testing on ld8 for stupidty each turn.
the lsit seems you are rellying on shadowblade to win you the wholegame, and possibly the the 2nd assasin.

You can't test on shadowblades leadership anyway as he's an assassin.

not even if he is also the army general? (can he be army general?)

No, shadowblade is not the army general, but I love the BSB, is there anyway I could make a good list with him and shadowblade, if so,please tell.
