A friend and I are considering starting Warmaster at our store. It'd start with the two of us and progress into... maybe as many as 6 others. The end goal would be for each person to have about 4,000 points.

Now, I've got all the downloads and whatnot, but I'd like some advice from you grizzled vets as to what dark elf units I should get for 2,000, 3,000, and 4,000 armies. A side board is ok, too.

I know I'll need at least 8 spearmen units (3 stands each, so 8 blisters, right?), 4 crossbow units, and 1 general (or is it 1 general per 1,000 points?) - how many would you recommend of the other units?
