As you can see, quite a fluffy corsair list. Now i know i lack a hydra to get those high S attacks, but i mainly play against Horde armies.

As we know, Corsairs arent the strongest, but they throw out a lot of attacks. The Dreadlord is probably going to be in one of the Corsairs units, as will the master.
The sorc might actually churn up some magic, and with the dispel scrolls should provide basic protection.
The assassin i will send in either with the shades, or stick him with the RhB corsair unit, so that when they get attacked, most likely by not to strong a unit, he can do some damage.
The Harpies and dark riders shall serve their purpose; Harpies are annoying, march blocking, and if they get lucky, a doom diver maybe.
Dark riders are dancers, disrupting lines and marches.
RBT's are mainly for punching holes and hopefully causing panic, mainly in goblin units.

Now, i know its rather specifically tailored to fighting hordes and is very much based on Corsairs, but i think that if risks are taken, they can actually do quite well.
Still, any constructive criticism is very welcome.
Look for the story of 'Far Sea Tempest', coming soon!

Seal of ghrond is too expensive for a tower master.

As you say, this army is tailored to hordes. Is this because that is what you will be playing against? I'd hate to bring a themed army like this and face an all cav or chariot heavy army.

Personally, I can't see any reason to go bigger than 10 or 12 in corsair units, but then I frequently come up against 'Strikes first VC spammers' or all mounted warriors. Hope you do well. Let us know how it goes.

thanks for the heads up on the seal, missed that 5 pts after mixing things up a bit. gave him a null talisman now instead.
and yes, the guys i play against are mainly just plain and simple horde,(one is O&G, the other only Gobbos, and then one with WE)

You might want to give your Dreadlord a potion of strength instead of the egg.

For those moments you'd wish you had something with high strength.

I assume the 206pts Shade unit is a typo??, because there are only 5 shades there one of which is a bloodshade, not that expensive.

Also BGs shouldnt be in a corsair army.... :) Joking!, I got that spheel to even when I accomadated it in my fluff that they are the elite guard of my Lords Black Ark this one person just wouldn't buy it at any cost.

I like this list, and I'm glad we have another member to add to the Brotherhood and as your opponents are all lightly armoured ******* you are going to go through them like a hot draich through lightly armoured *******.

Sorry this is a no go, 50 pts of magic items only, drop a dispel scroll or the Tome of Furion. Also one level 2 will not really aid in your magic, for me its a minimum of 2 level 2s if I want magic support to go through. For magic defense only, a Level 1 with 2 Dispel Scrolls is what you want.

Also, there is no point paying the points for your Sea Dragon Cloak, Armour of Darkness cannot be upgraded past its 1+ save. I know you have a corsair theme but you can just model the SDC onto your Captain as part of the amour of darkness.

Otherwise a good themed list that should be fun.
