Greetings,

Haven't posted here in a while. Haven't really played warhammer in a while as I've been doing other things. Well, I'm starting to get back into it so I thought I'd pull out the old dark elves. I used to run a Khaine themed list that did decently, though it had a scroll caddy. Not sure if I can run without it, even with dedicated mage hunters. Let me know what you think.

List looks good, but I'm worried what would happen when ANY magic came your way. You are sitting with 3 dispel scrolls and no other form of magic defense.

I know sorcs go against the Khaine feel(right?), but is there someway you could justify it simply to make the list viable against armies with moderate magic?

Swap the assassin for a scroll caddy and I think this list will work very nicely

This list is mean and nasty-especialy when commanded by a superior general. The ring of hotek works surprisingly well against magic. I think that a unit or two of salamanders could cause it problems...

How is this a khain list without a sorceress. And only 1 assasin

but a very khain like selection of units. Decent list,

And I agree with you on a scroll caddy. I think u need 1

A Sorceress can be devoted to Khaine, right? I think that you should swap the Assassin for a Scroll Caddie, or, if you really want that Khainite feel to it and don't want to drop the assassin, then drop a chariot (I've played some against twin-Chariot Dark Elf armies, and the Chariots never made up for their points).

You've never played against Datalink! :( He'll distract you with his dark riders, threaten you with the executioners, and suddenly the two chariots will be charging your key unit in the flank! A scroll caddy might be useful against certain magic heavy lists, but the two nobles can cause low/medium level magic armies a world of hurt.

Chariots aren't really that good - slow, stupid, prone, over-priced, all the qualities I don't want to see put together.

Drop the chariot, repeater crossbows on the Driders will do more kills, at least IME.
