I'm playing in a lunch league with a 750 pt cap. I have a hydra, chariot, 14 spear Elfs with full command & a gleaming pennant, 10 crossbows with FC and a master with hvy armor, SDC, charmed shield, Luckstone and swordthatcauses fear. With 143 pts remaining what to buy?

A unit of corsairs with frenzy banner and FC is 150. Should I just bump up spear Elfs and crossbows? A lot of other DE players too, so I was thinking of giving banner of flame to crossbows for any other hydras I might face. Also thinking of dragon egg for master.

Thoughts?

Drop the champion on the xbows.

Xbows can't take a magic banner unfortunately.

I'd suggest either some shades, black guard or flaming banner witch elves.

Must have missed that in the army book. Thanks for heads up.

Flaming witches. Interesting...

Is there a reason why the Master is so toned down?

I would beef up the Spearmen unit personally, or not take them at all. 14 bodies is quite useless, you would get more attacks from corsairs, and make it pirate-y themed.

The master was toned down because the fist week is only 250 pts and then it bumps up in points every week. I could change some of that out to the armor of darkness and crimson death, but I was trying to make a supporting hero.

Maybe I'll look at putting him on a Pegasus and have him fly around. I do like the witch elf unit with eternal flame though.

14 spearmen isn't enough. I'd bump them up to 30, then use your remaining 38 points to buy more crossbowmen

I'd say 10-15 (depending if you drop other stuff) witch elves w/F lamming banner.

Run 20-25 Spearmen, and then take a decent weapon and A.S with the Master, throw on a Peagsus, then put the rest into the BoEF 15 man witch unit maybe?
