We played a two player team game. My Dark Elves allied with Skaven against Warriors of Chaos and Demons. The non-chaos evil guys did not bad but it was most likely a draw when we called it. A couple things of note from the game. Having two magic heavy armies share the same dice pool and then consistently rolling below average can be frustrating. I guess sharing the dice pool is the standard way to do it and would probably work if you both planned your army-lists together from the start but it wasn't the best for two independent armies.
Also my list really is designed for 7th edition. I have a few 20-25 person blocks and then lots of smaller support units. The Demon army had 3 units total all hordes of over 50 models. I like to think that on a board with lots of space I could have outmanoeuvred him and worn him down with flank and rear charges. But on a cramped board and a half more poor elves had no chance. Overall it was fun to play a game but left me wanting to play a different game, like Flames of War. Which is a funny transition into....
My new VAMPIRE COUNTS ARMY!
This is my first army that has every reached real horde status 3 blocks of 40 infantry and a bus of 20 knights. 40 zombies isn't a ton compared to most VC armies but it is more guys than I have ever had in a unit. The black knights are actually older Chaos knights, but with rusty armour and glowing eyes I think they should end up looking pretty good. Not sure how actively I'll paint this army since my enthusiasm for fantasy is not what it once was. But it was a good deal so it's not a bad thing to have waiting in the wings.

Mudboy on the forum sent me this sweet Ogryn Sniper all the way from Denmark. I think this means I have to finish the rest of the squad sometime soonish.
