Default 3000 Dark Elves. New, please help

Let me begin by saying: I don't (yet) play WHFB

I have been given some education on the game, and have played a bit but without an army of my own.


So, here is an idea I'd like to run past everyone.
Please, let me know what you think.
Say whatever you like, but please know I'm new and don't fully understand what I'm doing. So saying "That's stupid" isn't helpful. Following that up with "But here is how you can fix it." helps a lot.



Here is the list I've tooled around with:
Themes: Fast, Ranged combat
+ Magical Oomph

3000 points

Lord: (320)
Supreme Sorceress (general)
Level 4 upgrade
Sword of Anti-Heroes
Dispel Scroll
Dawnstone
Dark Steed
Lore of Darkness

Hero: (745)
Death Hag
Battle Standard Bearer (Wailing Banner)
Gift: Cry of War
Mounted on Cauldron of Blood
(3 Cauldrons)
- fast, magical, scythed wheels, causes fear and terror =D

Core (995)
(20) Dark Riders, full command, repeater crossbows & Shields

(20) Darkshards, full command, shields & magic banner (banner of Eternal Flame)

(20) Corsairs, full command, repeater handbows & magic banner (Banner of Swiftness)

Special (430)
(10) Harpies

(4) Reaper Bolt Throwers (thunderfire cannons)

Rare (510)
(20) Doomfire Warlocks, W/ Master
Soulblight

Thank you everyone for all the great advice.

I am really, really glad I've gotten so much wonderful advice.

Now, here is yet another updated list - and I think it will be MUCH better then what I've posted previously =D


So, let's try this one out...

Supreme Sorceress [General]
w/ Level 4, Dispel Scroll, Talisman of Protection and a Dark Steed
+ 5 Doomfire Warlocks
(The sorceress will join one unit of Warlocks)

5 Doomfire Warlocks

Death Hag, w/ Witchbrew & Cauldron of Blood
+ 35 Witch Elves w/ Musician, Standard Bearer (Razor Standard)
[10 wide, 5 deep centered around the cauldron of blood]


Master BSB w/ Repeater Crossbow, Heavy Armor, Sea Dragon Cloak, Sword of Might, Enchanted Shield, Dawnstone.
+ 30 Har Ganeth Executioners w/ Full Command & War Banner
(Master will join the executioners on foot.)

5 Dark Riders w/ Musician, Repeater Crossbow & Shield
5 Dark Riders w/ Musician, Repeater Crossbow & Shield
5 Dark Riders w/ Musician, Repeater Crossbow & Shield

Reaper Bolt Thrower
Reaper Bolt Thrower
Reaper Bolt Thrower
Reaper Bolt Thrower

10 Cold One Knights w/ Full Command, Banner of Eternal Flame

War Hydra w/ Spit Fire.

That's 3K on the nose.

As you see I have listened to a lot of advice. The Hydra comes in from a suggestion that I have a big war monster in there. I was unsure, and still am.

Please, let me know if this is going well or what?

Thank you all again, so very much

Maybe less snarky about things. It is a good way to discourage people from trying to help.

Emjoy making your list and learning the hard way.

Oh, and your list is very powerful and you will win every game it is that broken.

Note above information may be false.
