Another Dark Elf list...

Just thinking out loud really with this one...after slagging off DE Chariots the other day I began wondering exactly how many I could get into my army, should I choose...so, 2500 points, DE COC.  Ewww. :(

Also, yes, Banshee article.  Working on it.  lol.  In my head.  Not working Friday, hopefully I will be sober most of the day and can try to get it written then.



So, we start with Special, and the Chariots mentioned above.

Oh look, no options.  Well, that's neat.

We can have 3, so we will.

That's 300 points, so I have 325 more of Special available.  COK, me thinks.  5 with Standard is...141.  Two of these units - 282...leaves 43 for Banners?  After a quick look there are a few interesting ones - but nothing that seems important enough.

NOTE - Stelek has really been pushing the importance of Scouts recently - I think I can see why, but sadly DE seem at a slight disadvantage here, unless Dark Riders or Harpies got FAQ'd to have Scouts, and I missed that part/forgot.

So, the list so far:

Cold One Chariot - 100
Cold One Chariot - 100
Cold One Chariot - 100

5 Cold One Knights - Standard Bearer - 141
5 Cold One Knights - Standard Bearer - 141

Okay, now Core?

6 Dark Riders;
RXBows, Musician - 139

Seems a nice unit, no? Spears to charge with, RXB to shoot with off Marching, cos we're Fast Cav.  Musician to regroup after bait and flee.  Funkyzeit.

Okay, 6 of these?  No, 5 will suffice.  5x139 = 695

MOAR Chariots then!

Sadly, Malekith and his special Chariot is illegal at 2500, cos he is 600 on foot... :(

Heroes I suppose...

Master;
Chariot, Great Weapon, Heavy Armour, Shield, BSB, Banner of Nagarythe - 305

Master;
Chariot, Ring of Hotek, Enchanted Shield, Great Weapon - 204

That's 509 on TWO Heroes...erk.  It's also 1786 altogether.  :(  If only I could put Assassins on Chariots? Looks like this is another Fail list HE do better.

Round off with 2 RBT, I suppose.

So, altogether the list is:


Master;
Chariot, Ring of Hotek, Enchanted Shield, Great Weapon - 204

Master;
Chariot, Great Weapon, Heavy Armour, Shield, BSB, Banner of Nagarythe - 305

6 Dark Riders;
RXBows, Musician - 139
