A quickie before bed?

Just a short post here, to splat up a Dark Elf list I wrote this morning over breakfast.  Keep an eye out later in the night (ie, in 4 hours) when the Alpha Legion army list i just wrote gets posted to the blog.  Crap.  Actually, I need to edit it, so there is a full army list at the end.  Don't go anywhere, I'll be right back!



Okay, I'm back.  That was close, huh?  Almost looked like a tool...

Anyway, the list seems pretty self-explanatory to me.  2500, I have one decent block of Spears to get stabbed in the back by a Sorceress, and to hopefully hold and grind stuff that breaches my Hydra wall.

Lots of XBows, and the 4 RBTs that I understand are my limit now? How sucky.

I haven't finished my read-through of the 8e book yet (iffy PDF scans are annoying) but this is just a ball-park idea I was throwing out to myself over my cereal while debating the utility of Meltabombs on Wolf Scouts to myself.  I was also wondering about how many hot people would be in work, what colour shoes I should buy next, whether a Triceratops could beat an Ankylosaurus in a fight, and an Internet Fight I was having on Facebook.  Pretty sure I won, fyi.

So, the list.

Rather than tidy it up, I'll post it as I wrote it - cos that will display the thinking, so as to help you non-Fantasy n00b types see what kinda stuff appeals, and better target the advice. Or not.  Up to you, really.

24 Spears;
Full Command, Shields. - 183

2x RBT - 200

2x RBT - 200

Hydra - 175*

14 Repeater Crossbowmen - 140

14 Repeater Crossbowmen - 140
14 Repeater Crossbowmen - 140
14 Repeater Crossbowmen - 140


5 Dark Riders;
Full Command**, Repeater Crossbows - 145


5 Dark Riders;
Full Command**, Repeater Crossbows - 145

Supreme Sorceress;
Lvl4, Sacrificial Dagger, Tome of Furion - 300

Supreme Sorceress;
Lvl4, Focus Familiar, Pendant of Khaleth - 320

Assassin;
Extra hand Weapon, Manbane, Touch of Death - 151

Assassin;
Extra hand Weapon, Manbane, Touch of Death - 151

Assassins go in RXBows, probably.  Hadn't decided.  Also, I know how Lores now work - ie, pick at list - but haven't really studied the Colleges yet, and so hedged my bets.  Suggestions, ofc, welcome for this.

---------------------------------------------------

* - In hindsight, I realise I paid 100 points short for this, so actually, my total is not 2430, but 2530.  Suggestions for trimming, gratefully appreciated.

** - Also in hindsight, paying for a Full Command on 5 models that are there to break a lot of the time is stoopidity of the highest order.  I blame these guys.

Oh, okay.  Really, more like her.

  Although, really...she's not a well-drawn Triceratops.  Looks more like a Styracosaurus.  Well...maybe that's just me.
