Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey Guys, I'm a Lizardmen player by trade and this is my first foray into playing as High Elves. It wasn't a completely unnatural change...High Elves were what got me interested in the first place! I have what I think is a fairly round army, except for the lack of magic. I haven't found it all that important in my 1000pt games, except when I played against Tomb Kings! damn them...
Anyway, let me know what you all think. Basically, I bought the army box set and a few extra models, so thats all I have so far, but I plan on expanding, so suggest whatever you think will help!
Prince, Helm of fortune, Guardian Phoenix, Lance, 159
Barded Elven Steed, Heavy Armour
20 Spearmen, Full Command 205
8 Silver Helms, Full Command, Shields 224
10 Sword Masters
Repeater Bolt Thrower

Welcome to Librarium Mikey!
this list looks really good, Maybe get a shield on your Noble for that magical 1+ rerollable armor save :party:
Your Core looks great as well.
As for your specials, I have 2 suggestions. The first is to replace your cavalry with 5-6 Dragon Princes with a musician and possibly a standard if you have the points (I usually go with the warbanner or Banner of Ellyrion). They are much better than silver helms for their points, especially since your 8 helms won't get a rank bonus anyways.
As for the second suggestion, I would replace your swordmasters with White Lions since you have no mage with Shield of Saphery to support them. Also the stubborn that the White Lions possess will net you a combat unit that should stay where it is supposed to.
Your Rare also look spot on for 1k. Though with only 2 choices its hard to go wrong
Just my $.02

I agree with everything demandred has said. 10 swordmasters will get shredded by any bowfire and white lions are much more resistants to missile fire. Dragon princes are also far more effective for their points cost than silver helms. Since you have brought the boxed set perhapse convert the silverhelms or possibly your opponents will alow you to use them to represent th DP until you can get some. I like your list and i also agree that under most circumstances magic is not very effective in small points cost battles.
Ok, I agree with all the suggestions. Here's what I've got...
Prince Helm of fortune, Guardian Phoenix, Lance, 163
Barded Elven Steed, Dragon Armour, Shield
Spearmen x20 Full Command, War Banner 230
Archers x10 110
Dragon Princes x5 Musician, Standard, Banner of Ellyrion 195
White Lions x10 150
Repeater Bolt Thrower 100
Great Eagle 50
General can hang out with the DPs or behind the line for leadership. So in a situation where I don't know who I'm playing, I think this list should do ok, right? Any other suggestions for tweaking? Personally I like this list. With a few minor conversions (extra spearmen, Dragon Princes) and very few other models to buy, its not all that hard to collect and start playing.
Can't wait to try it out!
I like your list it looks robust flexible and most importantly reliable. I think it should do well good luck.
