Dark Elves!

Post  nathanr on Mon Sep 30, 2013 4:12 pm

With a lot of the new army book's rules floating about online here (http://plastickrak.blogspot.co.nz/2013/09/dark-elf-rules-leaked.html?m=1), I've started putting together a 1250 point list that I think will work quite well:

Core:
3 units of 5 Dark riders with light armour, shields, spears and repeater crossbows.  Musician in each unit. - 330 points total

Special:
9 cold one knights with full command and some magical banner - 350 points
1 scourgerunner chariot - 150 points

Rare:
5 Warlocks - 125 points

That brings me to 955 leaving 295 points for characters.  I don't know what I can get for that but I'm thinking I can probably squeeze in a couple of heros, one being a bsb.

If I decide to flesh out the army to 2500 I'd likely invest in some infantry.

After 5 games with my new dark elves I'm starting to get a feel for the army. Some things work well and some things need improvement. One of the things that needs to be addressed is the lack of performance by the scourgerunner chariots. I feel like I can get better (or at least more consistent) results from some pegasus mounted heroes. They have the same number of wounds, a much better armour save, are much more manouverable and are more dangerous in close combat. I can give them repeater crossbows but I'm sacrificing a lot of potential shooting power. They are pretty much the same number of points (actually a bit cheaper) too so the switch is easy. With the points that I save I can give repeater crossbows to my two cold one mounted heroes as well so that it becomes a straight trade of increased combat power for 2 bolt thrower shots (that usually are hitting on 5+).

I'm going to keep the scourgerunners in for now as they are built and painted but I want your opinions on whether or not the peg masters are a good choice so I can start modelling them up.
