ok, so i already have 2250 pts worth of Wood Elves, and Dark elves, and i would like to go to the HE, and make my elf set compelte. i dont know how much anything from the new rules cost, but i would like to make this army
20 pheonix guard
20 pheonix guard
4 repeater bolt throwers.
i really want to make a pheonix guard army, im willing to drop the bolt throwers and just get 400 pts worth of pheonix guard more, just to make it fun.
aah the first of many new HE players.
Well you're idea for a list sounds interesting.
the idea for a PG list is a very good one and a cool one. And you are doing a good job at it.
I would though include either some shadow warriors, Reavers or eagles. This for the usual blocking, mage hunting and charge redirecting. Always handy.
Okay next point. Don't use units of 16 archers.
Use HE archers like Glade Guard (i play woodies besides HE) get a unit of 10 maybe 12. Not more. And you might want add a musician just in case, that is if you have the points.
Then maybe add some other cav. This mainly to counter enemy cav. Though you're PG will probably survive a charge, it is better to prevent it.
Hope it helps
and welcome to HE:party:
"Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and terrifying to know"
Really like the idea for the list, am pretty tempted to do something similar myself. Particularly with the shadow and death spells to make phoenix gaurd cause terror.
Changes I would make are below, similar to Elf warden's suggestions
Have fun and welcome to the fold.
You have played the rest now play the best or something like that.
really like the idea of gathering the elven armies
im building my he army based on the army of saphery and hoeth, but have never thought of a phoenix guard list before
your list looks fine but (surprise!) dont field your archers like that
i would have used 2 units of 10 instead leaving you some points to spare
maybe to invest them in an eagle or some silver helms
anyway, i quite lie your ideas
