Lv4 Supreme Sorceress on Dark Steed [363]
----Sacrificial Dagger, Lifetaker, Seal of Ghrond

Lv2 Sorceress on Dark Pegasus [235]
----Focus Familiar, Dispel Scroll

Master on Manticore [330]
----Armor of Darkness, Crimson Death

Assassin with Additional Hand Weapon [171]
----Rune of Khaine, Touch of Death, Black Lotus

Dark Riders x5 with Crossbows, Musician [117]

Dark Riders x5 with Crossbows, Musician [117]

Dark Riders x5 with Crossbows, Musician [117]

Crossbowmen x10 with Musician [105]

Warriors x20 with Full Command [155]

Corsairs x11 with Full Command [160]
----Sea Serpent Standard

Cold One Knights x5 with Full Command [175]

Reaper Bolt Thrower [100]

Reaper Bolt Thrower [100]

Total [2245]
8 power dice, 6 dispel dice

I'm more used to taking the full 10 levels of magic, so trying to fit in the Manticore was a bit difficult for me. Would I be better off going Dreadlord on Manticore with three lv2 Sorceresses instead? Is 6dd + 1 scroll sufficient magic defense?
Any other thoughts, comments, pointing out inaccuracies, etc. are all appreciated.

Gotta turn in a finalized list in a couple of days... Any serious weaknesses in this list that I should be watching?

This looks pretty decent. What is with the corsairs though? They look very out of place. Frenzied, small and by-in-large easily destroyed. Personally, I would drop them for 10 more crossbows and a unit of harpies.

In regard to magic defense, I have found that if you are worried, switching out the seal for another scroll might be better. One extra die may or may not help while a guaranteed dispel is always useful in those first few turn.

I really wish I had some harpy models, but I sadly do not. I could put together another unit of 10 crossbowmen, but a lot of what is currently unused is more corsairs... they sure give you a lot in the army box, eh? :? That said, I've never had my corsairs fail me in my other list, but that was admittedly much heavier on the magic and used Morathi - this tournament won't be allowing special characters...

I can easily eat through those points by taking putting a Dreadlord on the manticore and taking 3 heroes, but I don't know if that's the more effective option. The characters are where I have a ton of points, and the most room to play around, really.

I find that the pendent and sword of might are a better combo on the master on manticore. With full armour you have a 2+ save to shooting anyways, so the inverse ward is very useful here if your not giving it to the level 4.
