How to get a high Swedish Comp Score?

So, for a Tournament they are requiring Swedish Comp of between 8 and 14. At 2500 points, my typical Draft list comes in at a 0.8 !lol!

So I started tweaking with it and could get it down to an 8 without having to totally gut it, but they are also doing Active Comp where the difference in Comp Scores (x100) is awarded as Bonus points. So a 14 vs an 8 would yield +600 points in favor of the 14 when tabulating results.

Looking for ideas for the best lists that score at the softer end of Swedish? I've managed an 11, but that requires me to almost completely drop Executioners and go down to two RBTs... It doesn't seem plausible to get a higher score than that without taking 0 Warlocks.

Does anyone have experience with very soft comped Dark Elf lists?

My friend - this is very possible indeed! :) Getting good scores on DE is a bit tricksy since our book has hardly no bad choices. So, in general, swedish comp forces you to let some of those "tools" go and think about how to best utilise other units that are normarly considered maybe a bit subpar. Like you say, warlocks are harshly comped in swedish, but you can deffinetly get them in and still have a good score if you want to. Here is what I have been toying with lately:


Quote:
Dreadlord: Giant Blade, Other Tricksters Shard, Dawnstone, HA, SH, SDC, Brace of Rptr Handbows, Dark Steed- 287 (-29)
Supreme Sorceress: Level 4, Lore of Metal, Dispel Scroll, Opal Amulet- 260 (-35)
Master: Battle Standard, Dragonhelm, Potion of Strength, Luck Stone, HA, Shield, Lance, Cold One- 154 (-18)
Sorceress: Level 2, Lore of Light, Ring of Hotek, Dark Steed- 175 (-11)
23 Darkshards: Full Command, Shields, Gleaming Pennant- 334 (-10)
9 Dark Riders: Full Command, Shields - 183 (-6)
6 Dark Riders: Musican, Shields - 112 (-6)
10 Cold One Knights: Full Command, Banner of Swiftness- 345 (-17)
24 Black Guard: Full Command, Razor Standard- 435 (-21)
5 Harpies: 75 (-4)
Repeater Bolt Thrower: 70 (-7)
Repeater Bolt Thrower: 70 (-9)

Total: 2500
Comp: 12,7


This is probably the list I will be trying next, I feel it has most things you need while still retaining a good score.

6 Dark Riders: Musican, Shields - 112 (-6)

21 Black Guard: Full Command, Razor Standard- 390 (-16)
5 Harpies: 75 (-4)
Repeater Bolt Thrower: 70 (-7)
Repeater Bolt Thrower: 70 (-9)

Total: 12,2
Total: 2490


Not entirely sure about this one, but I feel it has great potential. Lore of light is such a good lore for the CoK bus and having that high strength banishment is nice vs stuff that try to avoid me.

All in with the crazy witch elf/cauldron horde. Add in light magic and you have a unit that is lightning fast and not so easy to avoid all of a sudden!

Most of these lists have been masterminded by others, but I have put my personal flavour on them (the unit of BG for instance) :)

I do have a comp 13,7 list with double dreadlords aswell! :D

Well I would avoid warlocks, they get clobbered. I would also only take 2 RBT in swedish, the third and fourth are pretty heavily comped. If you are taking executioners, consider lore of metal, it doesn't get hit that badly and the +1 to hit and the scaly skin spell work pretty well with exeuctioners, depending on tournament rules final trans can give you a hail mary option against deathstars.

Op where are you from? Sounds like your prepping for a mid Atlantic masters qualifier. Colonial carnage?

Have you been able to get together any good lists? :) Sometimes one need to shift focus from character
