OK this list is short on models but after some thought I wanted to try an all mounted force and brets just aint my thing so here goes, Dragon and Hydra will be juicy centre, darkriders will screen the knights/bait charges. SOOOO any thoughts will this work or did I just waste my time?Oh and bsb will go with unit of cold ones without the magic banner.

I'd try and get the Ring of Hotek in there (best on the unit champion that the BSB joins), you're very light on magic defense otherwise. Also, try and put null talismans onto the other COK champion and the Dreadlord.

You might do better with just one unit of knights, and instead take some shades. This'll be more competative, but obviously doesn't fit your theme entirely.

Other than that, this is a pretty sound list. Very competative, but not as harsh as some of the other tournament ones that are floating around.

Mounted army, but no steed for the scroll caddy..

The sorcerer with lucky shooting or scouts maybe magic, could go down fast and with that magic can walk over your army. A lore of bests or a lore of metal could potentially shut down your army. It is sound but my friend ran a list like this against my slann and I have massacred him three times. You are going to need hotek or a bunker for the sorcerer.

Ok here's an updated list. I droped a unit of COK for shades with an assassin for warmachine hunting/march blocking. Took rending stars on assassing for an extra punch in shooting phase. Added the ring of hotek and some nullstones,sorc still unmounted by a coldone is 20pts and so are rending stars...Thoughts is this better or worst? Should I keep with the all mounted or are the shades a better investment?

With shades, you'll probably only have one round of combat before someone breaks or gets wiped out, and you'll need strength 5 to reliably cause some damage.

You can't take the pendant and null talismans

Are you sure about that? I understood null talismans to work just like power stones and dispel scrolls, i.e. you can take multiple ones on one character, can take them on multiple characters, and they allow you to take another talisman. Is that incorrect? If so, can you point me to an FAQ or an errata that says so?

If you have a null talisman, you can't have any other talisman on that model

Here's a link to the DE FAQ:

OK added greatweapns to shades, drop illegal items from lord, any more thoughts agan was I better off with 2 units of cold ones or are the shades + assassin a better pick?

Any more thoughts guys or is this the way to go. This is going to be my next army so I'd like some feed back before shelling out the cash. As a side note My best friend plays High ELves so I can't wait to pit this army against him.
