Re: noob's first 8th edition 2.5k list, advice welcomed

I would give the rxb command and shields so they can work as a combat block too. I also agree with calisson that it's probably too many war locks, I would personally also go for shades to help heal with redirectors and blast template war machines that will hurt your combat blocks. or take a hydra or...

Re: 2500 Tourney List

Sorry mistakes of writing: Shades have GReat weapons. Masters have SDC too. About lore of life, not too many people play skavens in my group and city tournaments so I can handle with it. About Sorceress with Twilight cloak, what do I do with my master then? I think one thing this list left is a Dre...

Re: 2500 pt U Can't Touch This

I'm not sure this kind of list is that suitable in this edition. Although it looks interesting and certainly a nice change from typical DE lists, I think that the absence of killing power means that scoring VP's will be tough. Large infantry blocks that swap to a large frontage will catch alot of th...

You might want to think about combining the crossbows into one unit because as it stands your army only has one main combat unit of infantry that can actually take casualties. As one unit they can reform and operate fairly well in closecombat. Also if you can find some points to make your Witch elve...

Definitively go with tmarichards' suggestions. I just wanted to add that you might want to consider a level 4 over two level 2's since even though you have variety in your spells, the benefits of a level 4, especially in 2000 points are too good to overlook.

Well there are a lot of factors that can influence how a unit operates in your army, but there seems to be a major consensus that repeater crossbowmen are one of our best units. If you have 20 of them then a good way to use them is to make that one unit with shields and command. That provides 40 sho...

I would recommend dropping the warriors down to 20 models and using them as a bunker behind your main combat units and then taking those points and replacing the master with a cauldron BSB, since the buffs are extremely well suited to corsairs and blackguard.

One other option you could consider would be to take corsairs (probaly 30 of them) as your second main combat unit. This way, you can give the ward save to the execs as they advance and the corsairs have their own protection against shooting. Also, corsairs compliment execs really well since they ca...

I would suggest witch elves as they are more flexible in smaller units which will be the case in 1000 points, compared to executioners that require 30-50 models to be very effective.

I actually never though of the increased charge range from wide units, that's really clever. You are definatly right about war machines though, they are really rough to play against. So what's your conclusion about blackguard? Mine have been packed away for most of this edition but are you finding t...

Well sounds like you have a cool game up ahead, be sure to let us know how it goes. Your list is definatly solid but there are a few changes that I would suggest making. Instead of taking soulrender on the dreadlord on peg, give him the sword of might instead, that way he has a 2+ save against every...

This is definatly a strong starting list to use. Here are a couple options that I suggest you look into for an even stronger list. Drop one unit of harpies and the chariot, you already have enough skirmishers for 1000 points and any more will begin to lower the capability of the rest of your army by...

I think you might be in better shape by combining the cold ones into a large unit of 12 with the asf banner and the whip of agony (or the ring of hotek since if he doesn't have teclis he might have a lev 4 with the book of H). This way you have a main combat block that will deal a lot of damage and ...

Well if you feel like you need more units to deal with war machines, I recommend dropping the sorceress (lev 2) and replacing her with more shades, you could run 2 units of 7 with additional hand weapons which would be 28 shots at BS 5 and they will role over almost any artillery in close combat.

I would also recommend the first list, though consider taking a unit of 20 repeater crossbows with shields and command to act as another combat block if you need it too, then use the points from the extra repeater crossbows to increase the corsairs to 18 so they are a bit more usefull.

Well it is really dificult for assasins to get their points back in this edition so cold ones would probably be a better choice, if you dropped both assasin's and the bolt thrower you could fit in 10 cold one's with the standard of hag graef, which would be a very potent combat unit.
