Default First 2000 pt Dark Elf/Friendly Game

I am playing against my buddy's WoC army, it's a friendly game, but I want to show him what my "bird bones" are made of.

LORDS
Supreme Sorceress - 370 pts
General
Lv 4 Shadow
Dark Pegasus
Darkstar Cloak
Pendant of Khaeleth

HEROES
Sorceress - 180
Lv 2 Metal
Tome of Furion
Seal of Ghrond

Master - 196
BSB Hydra Banner
Beastmaster Scourge
Shield
Heavy Armor
Sea Dragon Cloak

CORE
11x RXB's - 126
Muscian
Shields

34x Warriors - 263
FC
Shields
Magic Standard/Banner of Eternal Flame

25x Corsairs - 300
AHW
FC
SSS

SPECIAL
7x COK's - 189

RARE
Hydra - 175
2x RBT - 200

Army total: 1999

Notes: Lv 2 will be with RxB's and BSB will be with Warriors. I'm using Eternal Flame because he likes to give his guys regen buff.
Also, I was just thinking of dropping the CoK's since they tend to become stupid when I need them...adding a chariot and shades. In the games I have played so far, 5 Shades have been my best unit.
I could proxy another Hydra, but I dont want to be a dick.

First giving hydra banner to a warrior block isn't a very good idea. You will end up getting 4 extra attacks from warriors and 1 from bsb but you will have a vulnerable BSB.
Either give him a cold one and add to the CoK or give him magical items and drop hydra banner. (armor of darkness+dawnstone or eternal servitude+dragonbane gem+magical weapon)

Your caster lord is solid but I'm not sure if you need a flying caster for shadow as the spells already have a long range. A shadow-caster can be located in a bunker with sacrificial dagger I guess.

If you are against WoC I would suggest taking a couple of assasins (touch of death,rune of khaine,black lotus) with additional handweapon. WoC characters and champions can't refuse a challenge. (In fact I use them with cauldron of blood BSB as assasins are khainite and become stubborn when within 12' of CoB and with a rerollable LD10 this guy can keep a unit for 2-3 rounds of combat or more depending on the number of characters in that unit.Then you can give him 5+ward and with WS10 he might endure for another round--there is a slight possibility of him to break the enemy if 2-3 killing blows occur against a lord or hero)

Shades won't do much good against WoC. But against most other they are golden.

I would drop bolt throwers as they usually don't earn their points back. You can spent those 200 pts for something better. (assasins and a couple more spearmen maybe)

Good lord, keep as is, although you might consider running her on foot in this low a points game.

You don't need a level 2 in a 2000 point game. Save it for 2500 and above.

It's a good idea never to take magical BSB's. Switch this out for a cauldron BSB if possible.

Resize to 10 because uneven numbers annoy me.

A decent block, but keep in mind, RXB are the best core.

Usually pretty decent. Same as above.

Take 6 with musician, and only take them if you have the Cauldron. It's what makes them worthwhile.

Hydra - 175

Switch 2 RBT's for another Hydra. RBT's are pretty useless now.

If you don't have the models for another Hydra, don't use him. 5 shades would be good, but you can cut fat in other places. Just make sure if you use CoK's, you use the Cauldron. It can make back it's points with a single boost on the charge sometimes.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.
