just bin reading your thread and think the khainite theme is a really nice idea, just a shame gw didn't make it more viable, but it could still work. I think you definitely need some harpies or shades for attacking missile units and warmachines - even if they die in the attempt it takes some shooting off the important parts of your army - but also for helping you set-up charges, dark riders could be useful too. I would also take at least one more assassin, especially in a khainite list, and I can see why you've took em but aren't the sorceresses a bit out of character?

Maybe Shades, but Harpies are just hideously ugly models. They could be the most powerful unit in the game and I still wouldn't touch them with a bargepole. A lot of the army will be coverted to some degree as the Dark Elf range has both awesome looking and frankly rubbish miniatures.


I would also take at least one more assassin, especially in a khainite list

Possibly, I could drop Shadowblade for two "lesser" assassins but there's still not much else I could lose to get the points for it. The Black Guard are Hellebrons escort so she doesn't get shot to ribbons, and the Executioners are nice heavy-hitters. My four WE units make up my minimum Core so I can't lose them.



and I can see why you've took em but aren't the sorceresses a bit out of character?

Yeah, but they're still naked elf chicks who kill things, and I'd need *some* anti-magic, even if it is minimal, and they Look Cool, which is the number one priority for me.

yeah I know what you mean about the harpies I wouldn't use em either, maybe some daemonette conv might look ok I dunno. But the shades are alright, although I'm using glade guard with corsair weapons for mine, and glade riders as dark riders cos I like the horses better. As for the sorceresses I'd be tempted to go all-out combat and take a master on a manticore with the seal of ghrond instead, wouldn't be as effective anti-magic as the 4 scrolls but does look cool and could maybe take out an enemy wizard or two as well. Either way I think your going to have plenty of bloodbaths with this army!

You're not filling the core requirement, but I'm sure you knew that...

A repeater bolt thrower might be nice for some covering fire, too, to at least try and ward away enemy skirmishers, especially as you have none.

It all seems cool, though. Which is definitely worth something!
