i'm in a fury trying to shrink this to 2250 for tourney play.. right now its sitting at a pretty 2499.. what would you take out to keep it tough and all the terror in there?
i'm thinking the lev. 1 with scroll could go.. but its iffy..
anyway.. heres the list

dreadlord on dragon - deathpiercer, and reverse ward, heavy armor, shield, and cloak - 535
master on cold one with battle standard, standard of slaughter, lance, cloak, and shield - 170
lev. 1 sorceress on dark steed with 1 scroll - 137

4 units of dark riders all with musicians and xbows - 117 ea.

2 units of 5 harpies - 55 ea.

3 units of cold one knights -
1- x5, FC, ring of hotek - 200
2- x6, FC, war banner - 227
3- x6, FC - 202

chariot - 100

2x hydra - 350

just took out the sorceress and a unit of dark riders.. added heavy armor to my BSB and it came to 2249..
scary not having that extra dispell die and the scroll though.. just keep everything close to the ring :)

Keeping everything clsoe to the ring will be good, means most armies won't dare cast offensive magic, at least not on 2 dice! You can muck up vamps VanHels buses as well, as they will only be able to do it within 8"

Daemons - well horror blocks with 1 dice won't care, so you will take some punishment from the bottom spell. expect pandemonium to be cast on any riders or units that stray out the 12" bubble though...

Seems you've solved you own problem!

I would have suggested the same thing to be honest. No need for a sorceress alongside the ring.

sweet.. thats what it will be then!
i know this type of list will only do well against certain other lists anyway.. not worried about deamons, just because i would no matter what list i would bring..

Vampires will be your biggest problem with that list (in my opinion) not daemons.
the 1 dice casting combined with redirecting zombies (taking advantage of hatred) and flank charges will be the biggest issue.

That said, in all I think its not a bad list

I'd take out one unit of dark riders and the small COK unit. Then i would give the sorceress another scroll and put the Ring to the other COK unit.

But do as you see the best.
