I'm over 15 pts, but really wanted the Standard of Discipline to give my sorceress lord LD 10 - See any changes you'd make to drop back to a legal limit?

General tactics: Blackguard and Exe's form the middle line, with spear elves to either side. Usually Witches rank in front of spear elves, buying me time and potentailly a S8 combat bomb from the Supreme Sorceress using Okkam's. Supreme Sorceress uses the Egg in the first round of combat if she isn't safe in a challenge vs a S5+ attacker. Sorceress aims to KB a character using the Cauldron and her firebreath in a challenge. To either side of the main battle line are Hydras, and then RXB on the far sides to harrass. The harpies and shades kill warmachines. Running opposition to enemy Knights is my Level 1 Metal sorceress, who funnels all my dice on an early turn into a powered signature spell, hoping to wipe them with an IF. Then she just saves the scroll for the CoB if they have Pit or Dwellers.

It's pretty flexible, but benefits from early engagement and small frontage fighting. My common opponents are WoC, Lizardmen, Undead, and Brets.

The thing about executioners are they strike last and are only T3.

5+ ward from the Cauldron isn't bad though...

As daft as it may sound, while the Supreme Sorceress will get the +1Ld from the Standard, thus taking it to LD 10, the unit of Spearmen will still only be Ld 9 (8+1) as the Rules for the banner state that the unit may not use the general's Leadership.

If you want to cut points out, you could easily cut the shields from the crossbowmen. They'll be the least favourite targets for your opponent's missile fire (who'll spend most of their time firing at the larger blocks and War Hydras) and you'll not be putting them into combat until the last possible moment and generally into someone's flank, where you'll be attacking first and won't, be facing supporting attacks back.

I don't think I'll have a problem with executioners. They may be shot, but really they are not that expensive of a unit. My Blackguard and Hydras are a more tempting fire magnet. With well over 100 models on the table I can weather the storm.

I got some harsh C&C on Dakka, mostly about the small witches not being usable and not enough mages. At this time I think the witches might be usable, but I also made some adjustments that leave me with 15 points of goodies remaining (probably more executioners).
