Ya, thanks for the tip *sarcasm*...

Well, here's my new list. It's a gunline breaker, made for fighting Dwarfs.

Heroes:
Master 140
Sword of Might
Hydra Blade
Heavy Armour
Shield
Sea Dragon Cloak


Core:
20 Spearmen 120

10 Crossbows 100

5 Harpies 55

20 Corsairs 230

Special:
8 Witch Elves 80

Spearmen make great walls to hide behind. Corsairs go behind them. Witch Elves in there too. Harpies rush cannon/bolt throwers. Crossbows can drop bombs on the enemy.

um not to be an ass but how are you going to take the sword of might and the hydra blade, the only way to up your ST and use hydra blade is potion of strength. Which of course you cant do on the noble.
Use crimson death. Cheap and good.

Aren't they both hand weapons...? Fine, droppin it back to Crimson Death. Also; what do you guys think about using Black Guard over Witch Elves?

Another nice little unit is a noble with: GW, Hvy Armor, En. Shield, Cloak, Ring of darkness.
Nice in unit of black guard or executioners since the ring of darkness counts for the unit as well.

An DE army without a Hydra/RBT is a crime!
Looks like a nice list vs Dwarfs, atleast you will outnumber them =P

I would definatly give shields to your spearmen its always worth it I find. If you drop the corsairs and witch elves you have 330 points to play with more then enough for shields and a hydra.

No, they are both magic weapons. It doesn't matter, though, because a character can only take one magic weapon (and only one piece of magic armor, and only one enchanted item, and so on).

I think rather highly of using black guard over witch elves, especially if you find the points to give them the ASF banner.

Black Gaurd rock and roll, one of the best units in the game at ws 5 always rerolling to hit at s4 and with the ASF they are nutters- I use the cauldron to make sure that they can even do for cavalry or murder heavy infantry. This would be a good addition when you work your army up towards 2k.

Try not to tailor your army to fight 1 foe- have a "I'll play anyone list" because it will make you a much better player in the long run.
