In the second one I was thinking about putting Warriors with shields instead of Corsairs and adding an Assasin but not rly sure about that 1 less attack.
Anyway, all your opinions would be read and consider so post a lot :P

Woah that's a lot of crossbowmen! Basically your first list is awful as it is. Gunlines just don't work in this edition as combat usually starts by turn 2 or 3 at the latest. You'll get almost 130 shots per turn yeah, but once they get to your lines, you're very very dead.
Then again at 1000pts, the only things that will survive those shots will be very very heavily armoured units... so maybe it isn't so bad. I'd advise against it as if nothing else, this will be boring.


List #2

Much better. :)

Master is good, sorceress is good but you cant pre-pick your spells you have to roll for them. Lore of fire is nice at 1000pts, but I'd also advise shadow instead. Up to you though.

Otherwise this list is pretty good. Play semi-defensively and then attack with combined charges of corsair and hydra and you should do very well.
