So I currently have:

10 Dark Riders
12 RxBmen
10 Corsairs
1 Sorceress
1 Manticore

and my question is, what shall I get next? I have 50 pounds to spend today, and I wish to build my Dark Elves. Please could anybody give me a pointer as to what I could work towards please? Thanks :)

Without doubt Cold one knights !! and maybe some more infantry ?

Box of Warriors, Cold One Knights. change 2 of the RxBmen to spearmen so you'll have 18 spears and 5 CoKs (ask around for that 1 more spear).

Witch Elves of course. The reason to play DE is to field skinny skanks ;)

Rather than buying all the stuff separately, maybe just get the battalion? Gives you the warriors and knights plus a few more corsairs.

Make that 2 votes for the batallion.

Batallion is definitely a good move, you get a whopping amount of good stuff in it. Or maybe a Hydra...? Hydras are always nice :p

For 50 bucks today, I'd go for a Hydra and a box of CoKs.

Get some black guard.

Crikey, thank you for the replies! :)

I've got a battalion and box of warriors now, for a total of 28, so I'm thinking 10 sacrifices and 18 spears for killing, with the potential for 5x5 should there ever be an opportunity :)

For the next addition I'm torn between harpies and black guard. I'm weighing more towards harpies as I'll have Corsairs and Warriors for infantry already, and more fast stuff to support infantry is always something I like!

Thanks again for the replies!

Get black guard, then you have a decent anvil to hold the line, setting up flank charges with your other infantry/manticore.

That's probably a good idea to be fair Sulla.

20 Black Guard?

After reading an article on 10 corsairs w/handbows as shield units, I'm tempted to add them!

18 ranked up 6x3 is how most people field them. Give them the banner of Hag Graeth and the champion Crimson Death or whatever that halbred is called.

25-08-2009, 23:46
You can get away with as few as 12 in my experience. Get as many as is practical for your budget, but don't worry if you can't afford 18-20.

25-08-2009, 23:55
14 @ 7x2 works great. Banner of Hag Graef with Crimson Death or Soul Render on champ is a solid unit without being a make or break piece of your army.

Harpies are amazing, I would strongly recommend them in your next purchase. The ability to fly is a great way of march blocking/re-directing the enemy.
