Here is my list for fun and casual play... I would like to know what you think of it.

CORE = 4
RARE = 2


Master - Crimson Death, Armour of Darkness - 130

Death Hag - Battle Standard Bearer, Banner of Hag Graef, Rune of Khaine, Manbane - 200

Sorceress - Level 2, Dispel Scroll, Darkstar Cloak - 185

Sorceress - Level 2, Dispel Scroll, Focus Familiar - 185


10 Crossbowmen - 100

10 Crossbowmen - 100

5 Dark Riders - Crossbows, Musician - 117

5 Dark Riders - Crossbows, Musician - 117


17 Executioners - Full Command, BSB goes here - 234

17 Black Guard - Full Command - 256


War Hydra - 175

Bolt Thrower - 100

Bolt Thrower - 100

TOTAL - 1999 Points

A simple plan really, run the Black Guard and Executioners down the middle, while being supported on the flank by the War Hydra.

The Bolt Throwers and Crossbowmen sit on the hill providing cover fire.

The Sorceress go in the 2 units of Crossbowmen.

The Dark Riders go down the far flanks march blocking, and taking out the enemy fast cavalry

just one twig you need to make: every DE army has to have a unit of 20 Spearmen, just a must have at 150pts, drop a unit of xbows and find the 50 extra points

20 spearmen with full command are 155 and I don't see any spearmen in your dark elf list...

I think the core is fine.
Go for either 2 hydras or 4 RBT i personally think, a mix isn't as effective
Can you have 4 heroes in 2000pts?

Yes, you can have 4 heroes.

I really like this list. It's well balanced and not overly powerful. It packs a punch, but doesn't go overboard with all the stuff people tend to moan about. Great work!

Thanks Monsterzonk. I also want to create a cavalry dark elf army so I will be posting that up soon.

I'm not saying a mix wouldn't be successful, but taking 2 hydras is way too good to pass up and maybe you could find something to do with that extra 25pts. :) Great list, bro.

I think as it is the list will work OK. However, a couple of tweaks I would make

1) 2 harpy units + 1 Dark Rider unit >>>> 2 dark rider units. Especially when you need to prevent your executioners frmo being baited.

2) Replace the RBTs with either spearmen (and then give a sorceress sacrificial dagger), Cold One Knights, or Hydra
