Thanks for all of the great advice! I am leaning towards an infantry based army supported by chariots and maybe some dark riders and maybe an RBT or two. My plan is to purchase/paint the army in manageable 1,000 point chunks and have it completely finished before moving on to the next chunk.

Again, thanks for the advice!

Don't go too infantry heavy. Infantry work, but too much will just lead you to buying more dark riders later, rather than sooner.

2 Cold One Chariots - spear, rxb
1 Cold One Chariot - spear (BSB's ride)
6 Harpies
18 Black Guard, full command

I like the second list a bit more. But I'm no fan of RBT's. (I JUST DON'T LIKE THEM, OK!?!?!?!) But hey... it looks like a cool list for a start. Go for it.

I added the RBTs to kill light cav and supporting units. My main adversaries will be HE, O&G, Dwarfs and Chaos. Of course all of this is just speculation as I've only watched games up to this point and not actually played any.

RBT's are really good at that sort of thing... but so are RxB's. I'm not saying they're bad. I just don't like them on a personal level. |I

Both lists look good, actually. And both are nice and mixed, which will teach you the game well. Good luck
