Basically im trying to get something thats straightforward to start off with and wont cost the earth so i can start trying it out sooner. I really like the whip of Agony, even more after erratas to beastmasters scourge (always str 5, extra attack, armour piercing.) So wanted to put it in the army somewhere.

Whip of Agony,Shield, Heavy Armour, Sea dragons cloak, Pendant of Khaeleth
(To go with corsairs)

Level 2, Talisman of Endurance, lore of Fire or shadow maybe?
(to go with Xbows)

11 Repeater Crossbowmen (6 wide 2 deep with sorc)

17 Dark Elf Warriors (5 wide)
Shields full command

11 Black ark Corsairs (5 wide with dreadlord)
Full Command, Frenzy Banner

2 Repeater Bolt Throwers

995/1000 points

Please remember this is just for friendly play to start off with so i appologise for not taking a couldron now. Other than that any comments would be ace, either on revisions to this list or what alterations or extra units you would go for at higher points.

Skaven and high elves are the two armies im most likely to fight but im attempting to not specialise in killing their armies... yet (any advice would be handy incase they try talioring theirs against me... then its fair game for me to do so :D)

List building is where i think my big weakness is.

HE, should have fun against this, they have a lot of bows to eat up your T3 army, a hydra could be an option for the list in my opinion, its thunderstomp plus its attacks will eat up most Infantry

I was thinking a squad of crossbowmen and 2 RBT's was a decent ammount of fire power to throw back at the T3 high elves

guess not as viable as id hoped

Im thinking BSB its so worth it in this edition drop your wizard to lv 1 and just throw 5-6 dices at the spell might blow you up but will take a few with it. As for the army a hydra would go a long way and you should try and get a bigger core for your army. I find that its the troops that matters this edition so fare so i would spend less point on the chars and more on troops at 1000 pts. My 1000 points empire army has Bsb, 1 lv 1 fire wizard big core of spear men with a priest for hate. sword men and handguners. and 2 mortars. The lvl 1 wizard gets a unite of 10 spear men for 50 points to protect it from archers. and just throws 6 dices into the fireball spell 3D6 s4.
