There be pirates!

Nice list. But I would consider dropping corsair champions and RxB elves for 5 RxB DR with a muso. They are so usefull, and they are part of the raider forces. They do not deliver the amount of arrows as the RxB elves, but they have great usability. Alternatively you could drop the BT, buth then you could have a hard time against armoured opponents.

Your noble is a bit unusual. Handbows have only 8" range, but you can always stand and fire. I would consider dropping the handbows and the hydra blade, and instead give him a sword of might, and the amulet "you can't kill me". And if you find the points a DS.

HA, Shield, SDC gives only a +3 save, the reversed ward realy helps against high strength attacks. I l love having a hero that is hard to kill so he can challenge and stop kills to our softer rank and files.

But that is joust my advises.

i was thinking about doing something like that. i was gonna drop the repeater handbows and something else for the dark riders.
i used the hydra blade for my blood armour. wit ha possible 6 attacks he would be wrath incarnate. though the pendant would be fun. i have a friend who's gonna get ogres. there's also a bretonian player at my club who's addicted to knights and as smug as any bretonian noble.

The DR should be nice against the faster armies. I can see the points on the hydra blade blood armor combo but you need someone with higher strength. He should be designed to the way you are going to use him. If he is with executioners then he is not likely to get the charge and a good save and a sword of might could be good. If he is riding with DR so can a combo like +3 str lance and enchanted shield be deadly :twisted: .

Alternatively you could keep blood armor and give him dagger of hotek (ADH ASF). But then he needs to be on foot and without a shield (starting only with a +4 save). But he have 4 str 4 ASF attacks.

I think you could definitely benefit from adding a more maneuverable unit or a hard hitting unit. Thus, I would say find points for either a chariot or a unit of 5 dark riders with crossbows. Their prices are roughly equivalent by 10-15 points.
