Let me know what you think.
I m not sure on the brace of repeatyer handbows on the Dreadlord and Master since I can t march and shoot with it.
The lore of life sorceress is there to try to bring wounds back to the monsters as needed. The warlock will cast the offnsive magic.
No Wych Elves, no cauldron no big troop. Feels more like how Wood Elves used to play back in 7th ed

I have not seen the book in detail yet but I can't imagine the bows on the lord and hero will be anywhere near as lethal as their mounts would be in combat and I seldom see solo characters anymore.

Personally I think you have too many hammers and not enough anvils. Even if you double charge the maticore and dragon into the flank of 50 man skaven block and kill 30 of them, they will still be stadfast for a turn which gives them an opportunity to counter them. They will also be ripe targets on approach to cannons of any type.

At a minimum I'd drop one of the Hydra for some infantry, maybe the manticore too. Just my $.02 of course.

DE can take lore of life now!?

Thanks for the feedback Jeff.
DE have now access to 9 lores.
With the capability of gaining wounds back from the lore of life attribute, I think the monsters can act as anvil as well as hammer with the sheer of attacks they can output.
Against hordes. The army has 110 shots a turn and 2x2d6 st 5 magic missiles from the warlocks units if I focus on casting doom bolts.
I believe the blocks the monsters choose to fight will be pretty depleted before they are in hth.
