noble:127pts
extra hand weapon

Probably want armour of darkness instead of all the mundane armour and a great weapon.

Looking at Heimagoblin's list...

You don't need 19 Black Guard, a unit of 13 with the character is plenty, or 12 if you've got 2 characters. Give the champion Crimson Death and the unit standard bearer the Standard of Hag Graef.

The Pendant master should also have as good a mundane armour save as possible. But, if he's going in ASF Black guard he won't reall need the ward save. Give him the Armour of Darkness, a great weapon and the Ring of Hotek, and give the BSB full mundane armour, a great weapon and the ASF standard. Then give the unit standard bearer the Armour-Piercing banner.

You need a level 1 with 2 scrolls in there.

The xbows could do with shields and a musician, that way you can use them to screen the BG and the flee through them.

Not really sure why you've got spearelves in there, they're not an assassin delivery system and there's nothing they can do that soemthing else already in the list can do better. I'd save the money (and points) and drop them as they'r enot even there to fill up the last core slot.

Shades work better in units of 6-8, 5 isn't really enough.

If you're looking to save money, don't but the metal harpies or dark riders- use the plastic daemonettes/bloodletters, the new plastic gargoyle wings and some green stuff will make great harpies. You can use the Glade Rider box set with the DE warrior and corsair bits to make great Dark Riders.

I would still reccomend 19 as a smart opponent will alwasys find ways to kill some of them.

The Pendant master should also have as good a mundane armour save as possible. But, if he's going in ASF Black guard he won't reall need the ward save. Give him the Armour of Darkness, a great weapon and the Ring of Hotek, and give the BSB full mundane armour, a great weapon and the ASF standard.
leaves the bsb very easy to kill.
I diagree again. 4+ as and pendant is bountiful defene and it will be needed becuase he won't kill a lord or other beastly hero.Against these opponents the ward will work better than any armour.

Then give the unit standard bearer the Armour-Piercing banner.

You need a level 1 with 2 scrolls in there.
You don't need it but it could be useful.
The xbows could do with shields and a musician, that way you can use them to screen the BG and the flee through them.
Makes them very expensive. ld 9 with re roll will rally crossbowmen, mo mus needed

Not really sure why you've got spearelves in there, they're not an assassin delivery system and there's nothing they can do that soemthing else already in the list can do better. I'd save the money (and points) and drop them as they'r enot even there to fill up the last core slot.
No harm in having another combat unit to back up the black guard and give the army an actual centre

Shades work better in units of 6-8, 5 isn't really enough.
5 is easier to hide.

If you're looking to save money, don't but the metal harpies or dark riders- use the plastic daemonettes/bloodletters, the new plastic gargoyle wings and some green stuff will make great harpies. You can use the Glade Rider box set with the DE warrior and corsair bits to make great Dark Riders.

Good modeling advice. I wrote my last list in a bit of a rush so here is the complete article.
Master, pendant of khaleth, soul render, heavy armour, sea dragon cloak
Master, bsb, armour of darkness, ring of hotek, great weapon
5 dark riders, x bows, musucian
5 dark riders, x bows, musucian
10 repeater crossbowwmen
19 black guard, command, asf banner, crimson death on champion
war hydra
2 bolt throwers
8 shades
assassain, +d3 attacks, killing blow, re-roll 1's to wound, extra hw
5 cold one knights
8 shades
20 warriors, standard=126
10 repeater crossbowwmen=100

I can personally guarentee no friends but there you are! took some off tamari's advice, at 2250 add scroll caddy
