Hi!Fantasy Army: Dark Elves
I'm about to prepare for a doubles, so I got to settle on what to paint up. I got a bunch of leftover Witch Elves that I haven't played for ages (one army book and one edition away), so obviously a lot have changed. Initially I wanted to cram the Cauldron in somewhere, but with only one Khanite unit and a limited point budget, it was hard to justify. Here's what I'm looking at:
Supreme Sorceress (250)
- Sacrificial Dagger
14 Dark Elf Repeater Crossbowmen (150)
10 Dark Elf Repeater Crossbowmen (110)
28 Witch Elves (355)
-Banner of Murder
8 Shades (128)
I'm especially curious if you think the Witch Elves would work in this kind of setting. I haven't played them since they kicked ass in 7x2, so I sort of have to re-learn the unit, but they look really good on paper, and not prohibitivly expensive. Manbane is a little expensive on a T3 champion with no armour, but with I've killed off heroes with it before, so... Sorceress gets Shadows, probably, and gets chucked in with the larger Crossbowmen regiment so she has some victims for the dagger. Standards in both Crossbow regiments to help out in Blood & Glory.
Ed.: If I dropped Manbane and the banner in the small Crossbowmen regiment, I could expand the Witch Elves to 32 (8x4). Don't know if it's worth it, though.
