Hey there once again everyone. I've been working on making a Dark Elf list for myself a while now, and am finally starting to come up with something I like the look and feel of. The following list isn't complete or set in stone, and that's where you folks come in. I'm looking for your advice on what magic items to add, what characters should be added to round me out, etc. Anything you can think of adding/changing to get this list to the 1500 point mark would be insanely helpful. Thanks.

Master-
Heavy Armour
Shield
Sea Dragon Cloak
Cold One

Assassin-
Additional Hand Weapon
Rune of Khaine

20 Dark Elf Warriors-

12 Black Ark Corsairs

There are 2 things that stand out from your list:-
1) No magic defence/attack
2) No units to bait, redirect and warmachine killing

You do not have enough points to get a sorceress and then anything else so look for items to give you some magic defense. The usual ring of hotek, null stones, etc.

You will need either Dark Riders or Harpies to do the baiting, redirecting, etc. Two units of 5 DR will finish your list quite nicely. DR are less throw away than harpies but suits the mood of your list more.

Great, thanks for the advice, PeeKay. I know about the lack of magic defense, and definately many of the magic items I choose will be in an effort to hamper my opponent's magic. Also, I like your idea on the Dark Riders, and how they suit the mood of my list better. It's themed towards being a raiding force from Clar Karond, so yeah, that works. Okay, thanks for the advice, and I'll see what I can do about finishing it up!

Looks good to me. I am not sure on the Reaver and Guardmaster but I guess you did that fill points.

Hopefull someone else will comment and give you some more suggestions/endorsement

I would be inclined to drop the Corsairs in favor of a Cold One Chariot or a second Reaper Bolt Thrower and perhaps some Repeater Crossbows for your Dark Riders. Otherwise, it looks sound to me.
