So for the first thing vs magic heavy opponents the sorceress will get 2 scrolls, and i can drop a banner off the crossbowmen and give it to a DR unit if my opponent goes a little over. this list is for both 2k games and 1,999 point games. if i go up to 2.25k I was planning to add a hydra and crossbows to my DR units or give the standard of slaughter to my CO Knights. The corsairs are for killing horde units but I can drop them and for 2 bolt throwers to bring the pain at a distance.

So what do you guys think? I am trying to have a little of everything in this list as you guys can see and that is so I can gain a better understanding of the new mechanics for 8th ed.

I have:
Chariot
magic
magic res
fliers
Range
large mounts
psychology
Fast cav
block of infantry
assassin
heavy cavalry
Scouts
Variety of weapons

and possibly war machines and a monster with a template weapon

I think the only thing i am missing that DE can get is killing blow, cauldron of blood, and ASF which i will experiment with later after a few paychecks =P

I think the banner in the crossbowmen is looking like free points but we will have to see how they function in the next edition

I agree on the banners as well but just as you said it depends on the next edition. from what i can see they are required to hold table quarters so if this is true my crossbowmen will do that as my spear men try to get capture one of theirs and if i throw it on the DR i can even try and to steal one of theirs last turn.
