Army overall:
Pretty stable centre because of the infantry & hydras. Shades will harass the centre & Harpies goes for war machines. Dark riders goes for fast cavalry, war machines & threatens the flank. What do you think?

Your BSB is vulnerable and very expensive. I would drop one hydra for some more specials. And with all those harpies, do you really need 2 units of shades? I think one unit of hapies and one unit of shades would be good. If you wanna use a BSB with that ASF standard then put her in a unit of executioners with a champ. A juicy unit of executioners is what you could need in this list. Drop one hydra and some shades and you have it.

Hydras are awesome :rolleyes:. The thing about the Battle standard is that no one is gonna hit her. Deployed to the far left or right of a unit she should in normal cases only touch one model. With a average of 7 str 4 armour piercing attacks with poison she should manage to kill a single model in my opinion.

Good idea. But i stil belive you could do it even better with executioners and one unit of shades less. Spearmen are just average in close combat. Otherwise its a good list. Althought its not my type of play to have 2 hydras, they may be good but it would perhaps be more fun with some more variety, but thats only me. Good luck.

I'd drop the warriors down to 20 man units. You can almost add a 4th with the points saved. To get the rest I' drop hydra #2 and transform the extra points filling out the unit commands and a chariot or bolt thrower.

For starters I like the list, very interesting choices you made in general.

I agree with ivrg in his suggestion of executioners. Spear elves are great with their full CR support to other units, but I think you need one more hitty unit in the list to complement the already powerful 2 hydras you are fielding. Drop the unit of 26 Warriors and get a nice sized 15-16 strong unit of Execs. With the ASF banner they'll be nigh unstoppable and should you give them the BoM, they'll just be OP.

I don't have my book with me, but shouldn't your lord be 240pts? I might probably mistaken though. Will you be giving him a GW perhaps? I hope so, just stick him with the execs. and tear it up.
