Hi All:

So I am fairly new to fantasy and normally play Warriors of Chaos but want to fiddle around with DE list building. I tried a game last night against an extremely heavily comped magic/ethereal Vampire Counts army and was unceremoniously destroyed. This is what I cooked up. Do note that I kind of want to avoid the standard Witch Elf / Executioner with Cauldron of Blood Deathstarts running round the net.

Personally, I think that the magic weapons on the unit champions are largely a downgrade but having to fight a Vampire Counts ghost wall with mundane weapons and magic was….horrible… Using Swedish Comp, this score about a 10-11, so it ought to be "average". It is comparatively light on the shooting and magic that I had originally intended. I haven't tried Cold One Chariots but I like Chaos Chariots so yeah. Thoughts?
