I also thought about doing a hellebron themed army. The thing with Hellebron is that witch elves counts as core units for your army, so i would suggest, at least for the theme's sake, to add a couple of units of WE and a unit or two of executioners..

MY opinion is that there arent enough troops worthy of the COB buffs. Yes, crone is savage in combat, but i think as she is khaine she cannot join non khainite units. I'd like to see: 20 WE with helbron. 20 executioners with ASF BSB, then perhaps 25 warriors with warbanner and assassin. Build the rest of the army around this solid centre. Perhaps 4 RBT would be a bit over the top but could work well, using the theory that im har din combat, your hard in combat, but if i shoot you with 24 str 4 Ap shots a turn you will become pnasies in the face of my combat troops.

khainite charachters can join non-khainite units, but non-khainite charachters cannot join khainite units

You have to have witch elves really for this army to make sense.
I'd never normally say this but you do a unit of 18-20 witch elves to support her.
Normally i'd say never take more than 12 or 14 of any elite infantry in DE list except black guard but here i'd say its neccesary.
Also you need warriors to use the full effect of the cauldrom otherwise its uses are limited, you have one unit that can be targeted by the cauldron really and thats your BG an opponent that knows what the cauldron does will destroy that unit becuase BG arent tough, taking some warriors gives you options, if an enemy charges your weaker spearmen and then u bung an extra attack or 5+ward you've got a 20 attacks with spears thats incredible, also witches are stubborn when near the cauldron ud be mad not to take witches.
Take a few units of 12 or 14 and get some flank charges in, DE elites are used to support DE core infantry thats there job really so dont take 20 because 10 odd of those are wasted points, unless its fluff for crone
