Been toying with this list, as Im interested in fielding Menghil and his Manflayers. See what ya'll reckon.

L - High Sorceress
Level 4, powerstone, Steed

H - Sorceress
Darkstar cloak, powerstone

H + H - Beastlord + Manticore
Lance, L Armour, SD Cloak, Web of Shaddows, MANTICORE

C - 25x Warriors (thinking of using Corsairs instead...)
Shield, Spear etc, Full Command

C - 12x Warriors

C - 10x Warriors

C - 5x Dark Riders
RxB's, Muso

S - Menghil Manhide and 9 Manflayers

R - 2x Reaper Bolt Throwers

R - 1x Reaper bolt throwers

TOTAL - 1997

Now, Im trying to be strong in all fields, CC, shooting and Magic. I think its ok, but would like suggestions (particualy on whether Spearelves or Corsairs would be good in this list....)

Regards, Tim

I'm afraid that apart from the manticore and perhaps mengil you'll get slapped around in close combat no matter whether you use corsairs or warriors. If I used this list however I would prefer warriors because they are more defensive and your army is pretty defensive (2 shooting units 3 RBT). In your warriors case you can use either spears if charged by hordes with low T and/or AS or if your opponents are a bit more elite but withouth high strength modifiers you might think of choosing handweapon and shield instead of spears to fight for the extra +1 AS in cc. Also the few extra men you get for warriors gives you a better chance of keeping your 3 CR for rank bonus.
