The Relic Sword is useless on a caster. Earthing Rod seems pretty useless, since she's on a Peggy she should have Focus Familiar or a Darkstar Cloak. Preferably, she should be on foot with the sacrificial dagger in some warriors, but hey, you probably already assembled that PegaSorc.Juno, High Sorceress - Lvl4 - Pegasus, Earthing Rod, Pendant of Khaeleth, Relic Sword -380
These are decent choices.Dotty, Sorceress - Lvl2 Feedback Scroll -185
Patty, Hag queen - Cauldron, BSB -225
A different banner would be much better here. Gleaming Pennant in particular.40 Warriors, Full Command, Lichebone Pennant -310
Give them musicians.10 Crossbowmen - 100
10 Crossbowmen -100
Too few for that investment, bump it up to 20.5 Harpies -55
14 Black Guard - Full Command, Banner of Murder, Tower Master has Armour of Darkness. -267
Get rid of these, and get some other alternatives for high S in there. A 6-man Cold One Knight unit would work well.2 x Reaper Bolt Throwers - 200
Yes, it actually works out quite well as a flank protector, as it is nigh invulnerable to the usual warmachine hunters.Hydra - 175
Should be 1997 in total.
I've not used the Cauldron before but it's ability to buff other units looks very helpful. I'm assuming that as a warmachine it can't join units so it's best used behind the main battle line?
Despite how Dark Elves used to fight, the Black Guard unit will be too small to make a difference. They'd probably get shot up before they ever even get there. Considering the investment you put in the unit, that's just not going to work.I kept 2 small xbow units rather than 1 big one as I intend to place these as flank guard for the 3 main fighting units.
Working out how to handle HtH in Fantasy with the DE has proved my biggest challenge. The Dwarfs that I used for the first dozen or so games were easy. You marched up, got stuck in, and usually won. The DE are much more fragile. I've therefore gone for a Hydra on the basis that it's manouverable and hits hard. A 40 strong Warriors unit to take advantage of the Horde rule or the Steadfast rule (I'll alter formation depending on what they are fighting). And a smallish Black Guard unit that I intend to run only 2 ranks deep. (I'm hoping that at I6 I'll go first and 18 Str4 Armour Piercing attacks
-assisted by the Warrior Elite rule- will carve big holes in almost anything.
Reapers are pretty shit. A combat character, the Sorcs, another Hydra, any of those would be better options.Finally a couple of Reapers - to keep Monsters honest.
So comments please.
Thanks in advance
Finally, as a note, Vaz, you can't take Beasts for Dark Elves. It's Dark, Death, Shadow, Metal or Fire. As well, Sea Serpent Standard is for Corsairs only.
