Expecting the terrain to be denser than it was I dropped the Mamakil and mounted Sergeant Regiments opting instead for additional heavy infantry and some Sargent Troops.
The Dark Elves set up to hold in their centre and attack on their right, with a few flying units on their left to snipe some objectives late in the game.

My plan was similar but having a larger force I could cover more ground. I would attack on my left with my best mounted / flying units, attack in the middle with my heavy infantry, and look to disrupt on my right to contest a few objectives. The Troops of sergeants would be used in the rear line to counter any sneaky flyers hopping over my front line.
So the stage was set for a major conflict on my left as my main attack ran into the Dark Elves biggest effort. The elves winning the initiative pushed forward on both flanks whilst holding back in the middle.
