in lower point battles is 3 DD acceptable for 1000pts and 4 DD for 1500pts and lastly for 2000pts 5DD

also would a Dreadlord on manticore a unit of 10 CoK lead by a master and chariot all charging a block of 48 grave guard with 2 vampires (one is a lord)

Putting a Dreadlord on a Manticore is an aweful idea and a bad waste of points. Put it on a Dark Steed, into a unit of Black Guard with a Pendant of Khaelith. Honestly though, manticore is worse than a war hydra and it doesnt move as fast as a dark steed. Get a war hydra and a steed on your dreadlord for a total of 203 points instead of 200 for the manticore. The hydra has 13 attacks and will take down the tomb guard of 48 2x faster.

ya put the lord on a CO or a horse get a hydra bump the cok down to 7models and graba wizard. more dd is needed vs VC and she can hurt them bad even in combat (casting soul steal,horror)

Take two hydras, run circles around the GG and breath fire on them. You only need to worry about dispelling Danse.

Peril is correct - the only spell that really threatens a Dark Elf is Van Hel's Danse Macabre. Why? because an out-manouvered Dark Elf is a dead Dark Elf.

My 2250 list runs 3 DD, 2 scrolls and the Ring of Hotek. I do tend to knock out at least one wizard by turn 3 though.
