for me to win over him!

Turn 3: Hes second Chariot charge Morathi...
She's lucky and survive.
Chimera dies by my Kharibdyss!
My Warlocks, not shown in pictures, killed hes Marauders. I managed to dispell all hes nasty spells from Daemon Prince into my Witchstar... Thats why he was carefull entering CC with him.
I casted Soul Blight on Daemon Prince in my magic phase.

Turn 4: My Pegmaster helped Morathi from the last Chariot! My Kharibdyss charges he's Daemon Prince... And kills him!?
We stoped after that.

Conclusion! MVP this game was for sure the Kharibdyss! Killing both Chimera and the Daemon Prince... Or was it my dices that should be MVP?.
Pegmaster with Chill Blade/Cloak of Twilight combo was not that successful. The low S makes it hard for hes attacks to go through Chaos armor saves.
Sorc lvl3 was a gamble to accompany the Witchstar. She ended up with 1 wound left in the end.
I was Lucky hes Hellcannon Blow up in Turn one, otherwise the game would've looked quite different!

Fun game. Your list looks very tailored to taking on WoC (e.g. the executioners and witchstar) - was that a deliberate choice from knowing who/what you were going to be facing or just happy good fortune? Dark Elves can do anything well but can't do everything well. In my experience, melee oriented dark elf armies can indeed chew through ranked up WoC armies like his was, although it is - as you noted in your BatRep - dice gods contingent. Either way, good win and thanks for sharing.

Thanks for Response :)
Hes goal was to the max list to destroy me! Only thing i knew then for certain, was that i'll likely see a
Daemon Prince, Chimera and a hellcannon. So none of us knew how our lists should look like :)
only speculations.

My strategi was to field a witchstar with a sorc lvl3(ring of hotek) to give them some magic ress.
joined up by executioners, so they could benefit from the COB's Wound rerolls and the Frenzy spell.
Only threat to them that i knew of, should be the Hellcannon.
My Pegmaster was builded to take on Chariots or maybe stop hes Prince for a round or 2.
Morathi was a clear choice, since she has great deff against magic, mobile (stay away from Daemon Prince), and you can pick the
Signature spells from Death,shadow and Dark, if needed.
Kharibdyss was ment to protect the star from flank. I will probably field 2 of them next time i face him :mrgreen:
That was the best list i could figure out to counter WoC! The biggest threat i see... that damn Hellcannon! feels like there's
nothing we can do about it! And if we try to do, we need to put to much effort in it so it's a win for him anyway. Unless someone know
a " I'll stay here for a while" build to Pegmaster :mrgreen: ?
