ok so I've posted a bit on here about wood elves and chaos which I have played etc but i'm gonna be selling most of my models soon and totally refurbishing my collection in order to regain some of the passion for gaming.
Plan is a Dark Elf army, as i've alway loved them and the new plastic models allow me a chance to collect affordably the army i always wanted.
However i am relatively inexperienced in both collecting and playing against the dark elves....
which leads me to my thread....
My plan is to theme the army (i love story!)
around a very succesful corsair, one with notariety and friends in the right places, and one with a particularly savage interest in slavery, and in raiding the high elves, also one with a particular disdain for the vermin of the underworld (my main opponent plays skaven!), and they're unclean filthy hides, all the better to slave away their reamining days in the mountains!
so the owner of his own large raiding vessel... perhaps even a black ark?! :o
so the general plan for the list is this...
The corsair lord will be on a cold one along with his trusted bodyguard of knights ie; 1 mounted lord and 5 cold one knights.
the base of the army will be his mistress the sorceresss lv2 and her body guard of 20 spearmen, wth full command and 2x 10 cross bowmen no command.
The rest of the army comprising of 20 corsairs with full command hiding and assassin, 5x shades for scouting, and a war hydra and 2x reaper bolt throwers for back up...
I know there's probably plenty of holes and weaknesses in this but its just my starting point and I dont think it even makes up quite 2k points yet.
but what significant changes would you make and what would you add?
I plan on using a refused flank tactic against most opponents with bowmen, and bolt throwers and spear led my sorc on one flank. with the hydra corsairs and cavalry going down the other. the shades are purely to remove warmachine crew and/or rogue wizards in advance of the main army.
all help very appreciated!
