There seems to be a lot of dark elf armies in this forum at the moment, so i apologise if im boring anyone! Will be getting a dark elf army for a tournament (to be honest i think they look cool), and using the battalion as a basis (as i already have that).

Any critisms muchly apreciated:

Lokhir Fellheart - 250
Master - Lance, Hvy Armour, Shield, Cold One - 110
Sorceress - Dispel Scrolls x2, Lifetaker - 180
Sorceress - Level 2, Tome of Furion - 150
Assassin - XHW, Rune of Khaine, Touch of Death - 151

Warriors x25 - Shields, Command - 190
Crossbowmen x13 - 130
Corsairs x19 - Command, Standard of Hag Graef - 250
Dark Riders x5 - Repeater Crossbows - 110

Shades x6 - XHW - 102
Cold One Knights x5 - Command - 175

Repeater Bolt Throwers x2 - 200

Total = 1998

Thanks again :)

corsairs can't take the Standard of Hag Graef, the can only tke a 25 point banner, hence sea serpant standar is popular

shades are far better off with great weapons

have you use fellheart yet?

Ah, must a missed that when i was making my list... and no i havnt used fellheart in a game (i dont have that many dark elf models yet).

Surely an extra hand weapon would be better for shades to take advantage of their higher initiative? Although i suppose their job would be to kill war machines / flank charges so initiative wouldnt really matter as they'll be charging. Although any ideas on what models to use?

So far:

- change the banner in the corsairs to sea serpernt banner -10pts
- give great weapons to shades instead of xhw +6pts

so will have 6pts left

I hate corsairs but without changing the army so much here's what i would do:

-Banner of murder for corsairs.
-Warriors go down to 20
-Master goes away
-Sorceress become legal (one gets the second scroll since the first one has more than 50pts of items)
-Black lotus for assasin so he loses poison attacks
-Xbowmen down to 10, shields if possible
-Shades down to 5 if u need the points
-Get some harpies and a Hydra.

does look ok, fellheart is cool, but I'm not sure hes worth his points, you could use the model for a cheap master and save 100ish points and get another unit shades or a chariot

I'm dubious about the vaule of the Assassin, its 2000 points and you have over 700 points in characters which is a tad much to me in an elf army

I would drop the Assassin, and use fellheart as a normal master and get a pair of chariots to support your infantry

this is the list with fellheart that I have worked out

Level 4 High Sorceress @ 670 Pts
focus farmilar
black dragon egg
Pendant of Khaeleth
pegasis

Fellheart 250(general)

Level 2 Sorceress @ 175 Pts
Dispel Scroll
Tome of Furion

10 Dark Elf Repeater Crossbowmen @ 110 Pts
shields

10 Dark Elf Repeater Crossbowmen @ 110 Pts
shields

10 Dark Elf Repeater Crossbowmen @ 110 Pts

17 Black Ark Corsairs @ 220 Pts

6 Cold One Knights @ 226 Pts

Reaper Bolt Thrower @ 100 Pts

Reaper Bolt Thrower @ 100 Pts

war hydra @ 175

Total Roster Cost: 2251

Wow thats a beardy list :-D, are chariots any good? I've heard mixed reviews on them to be honest, plus you cant get the dark elf chariot model anymore (which is anoying as it could easily be converted to use the new cold ones). I think i'm gonna go for a more balanced list for my army, the group of gamers that are in the store are a sound bunch and not *too* beardy so should get away with it. Although i am templted by a lv4 sorcererss on a pegasus now, may write up a list when i get back from uni today.
