Hi there! I've been playing OK for few months and I recently decided to buy some high elves since I find the models really cool.
Here's my problem; I'm not very experienced and I would need some advices on my army list.
Here it is :
Mage lv2 175 pts
Ring of fury
Mage lv2 135 pts
Noble 162 pts
Spearmen (x15) 160 pts
White lions (x14) 160 pts
Dragon Princes (x5) 160 pts
Lion Chariot of Chrace
In future, please do not post the points costs of units without upgrades. - GN out

This list isn't bad at all Antego and covers more or less everything at 1250 points.
Really the only changes I would make would be to drop the Eagle and Lion Chariot, (sorry not a fan of chariots), for another RBT and a unit of 5 Shadow Warriors. Ideally you would also boost the Spearelves unit to 18 so that you could have all 3 ranks of 6 ASF.
You may also want to think about putting the Armour of Caledor on the BSB just to give him a nice 2+ save and dropping the Reaver Bow.
With a bit of jiggling you could also give the Silver Wand to the Mage with Ring of Fury and the Jewel of Dusk to the other Mage. This would really add to their offensive potential.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for your comments
Here's the modified list :
Ring of fury
Jewel of dusk
Armour of caledor
White lions (x14)
Dragon Princes (x5)
Shadow warrior (X7)
A good balanced and I would think effective army list. My only basic change i would suggest is, if the sacred incense mage is intended for the unit of WL, the points would be better spent elsewhere, if however it is not ignore this advice. I fight a white lion army and they have the best basic save in the HE army against missile fire(at 3+) and against canons this wont help at all. They can also avoid other missile fire ( such as RBT) as they can move through any woods without penalties. They are however vulnerable to magical bomb spells ( with like all elves T3) it would be more taticaly effective perhapse to invest in the banner of arcane protection as a defensive measure for your unit of WL ( I know that this would involve jiggling some points). Good luck and have fun!

I agree with buckeroO shooting seems to be much more effective in low points battles ( whilst magic seems much less effective), in a 2K list I take a BsB as you have him set up in the last list, but in a lower points cost battles the reaver bow may well make the difference and I set up my BsB with a reaver bow at under 1500pts. However you have to fight with a list you enjoy using and only you know the types of opponents you will be fighting so good luck and as always have fun.
