I have written up a list for a Dark Elf army in Kings of War.
This is pretty much a straightforward conversion of the Warhammer army, for which I make no apologies as I wanted to be able to use my models in Kings of War.
I wanted to follow the convention of a simple army-wide special rule (not making one up) and as Abyssal and regular Dwarfs share a rule, it made sense to have Dark Elves as "Elite", like their kin.
Assassins are a unit upgrade, just like throwing mastiffs and infact function identically, the rule fits like a glove.
I left out a few problematic units as they were awkward to balance without more playtesting and feedback. So there are no Harpies, Dark Riders, War Hydra or Cauldron of Blood as of yet.
I also left out Executioners for now as they were too similar to Black Guard.
I'd like to have repeater crossbows but left them as crossbows for simplicity. Pistols for Corsairs would be great but until Mantic have a pistol armed unit, again simplicity wins out.
So please give the list a try and tell me what you think. Feel free to suggest your own ideas for the units I left out.
