Few questions come to mind.
1. Is All Cav Dark Elves competitive at all? I keep getting mixed messages from people about how well it performs.
2. Should I bother running the 9 Dark Riders for the Sorceress, or just stick with min units?

Other than that, suggestions/critique welcome. Currently I have 3 boxes of Dark Riders and a box of Dreadspears, but I'm trying to hold off building them until I have a finalized list. Will be a pain to build them then have the list change and what I build doesn't fit.


Edit: Been fooling around with ideas and I have a second list now, since I figured Cold One Knights wouldn't go astray (and they look cool).
