I have been given the opportunity to participate in some Warbands games, and decided that rather than go with my standard Imperial warbands list, I'd try to use the new High Elves. So, here it goes...
Heavy armor, Greatweapon, Reaver Bow
shields (noble goes here)
total- 500 even
The idea behind the list is pretty obvious- shoot EVERYTHING. In warbands games, the units are smaller, and the troops are usually lighter and lightly armored. Tough, armored foes will be slain by the RBT and Reaver Bow. These weapons should be able to drop about a unit per turn. The Seaguard should do an excellent job at waxing the lighter opponents. The Dragon Princes are just there because I love the idea of 8attacks on the charge against such tiny units...
Wouldn't archers be a better bet than seaguard? They aren't going to use those spears after all.
Up, up and away!
Well, you don't get a rank bonus in Warbands unless your ranks are 5 wide. So to get a +1CR i'd need to have 10models and not take any casualties. So I decided that I would go with two ranks of three. I'm still not getting a rank bonus, but i'm minimizing my frontage (and therefore incoming attacks) while maintaining my attack output.
Plus, the Seagaurd with shields are only 2 points more expensive than the archers (assuming i don't give the archers ANY armor). All together, with only 11 seaguard, i'm only saving 22points. There's not much that i can do with that, sure, buy 1 more archer- but my Noble is already maxed out, and I won't have enough for more DPs.
Considering the options, i dont think an extra shot with 6inches more range and no CC ability at all is going to be worth the swap.
The big question is whether i want to swap the SG for normal spearmen, and/or swap the DPs for something else.
or you coulld just use hw and shield to improve your as
