Trying to fit in the swordmasters and change my list up a bit. What do you think?
I was also thinking of selecting portent of far, and second sign with the Seerstaff mage, since I roll so horribly all the time.
Don't think I can give up the 3 casters yet. I'm kind of leaving my prince without much protection, but I figured the champion can always take the hits/challenge or my BSB seems to stay alive so well.

I would consider taking curse of arrow attraction and shield of saphery with the seerstaff mage, as that will supplement your large shooting quantity a bit better.
I would also think about dropping on of the bolt throwers for a pair of great eagles, who will harrass a lot better, and give you some much needed war machine hunting ability.
Beyond that, it looks very good. I assume the Lord goes in the swordmasters, and the BSB in the Pheonix Guard?

I like this list with the SM,DP's & PG a potentially very aggressive and offensive list. I would agree with GN though I would drop one RBT for 2 GE or some ER's , not necessarily to war machine hunt, although they can at a pinch but to march block and redirect enabling your elite troops to pick their fights more easily. Its a difficult call though because I also like the fire power produced by 3 RBT. However if you are going to adopt an attacking style of play, and with these troops you certainly can you probably will not get the investment back on 3 RBT's, two can deal with enemy war machines in most circumstances. I also love the SM with the banner of ellyrion it protects them quite well in most circumstances and it gives your opponent a real problem because they can charge through almost any terrain and use it for cover whilst setting up the charge. I really like this list its seriously aggressive and I would'nt like to have to play against it. Nice one buckeroO!
I played my friend's TombKings today and slaughtered him. We both rolled dice horribly. I actually took 2 lore of light spells on the seer mage. The one made 3 of my units ItP for about 3/4 of the game which saved my bacon. I think I will drop 1 speaman to get my SM champ the gem of courage. I managed to fail several leadership tests with my Prince and with my swordmasters (they never got into combat because they failed a terror test from the Bone Giant)
I am considering dropping one RBT, but am not sure what to put in it's place. Eagles don't work well for me. They charge about half the time (failed leadership tests) they never kill anything in a warmachine crew, so usually are outnumbered and flee from combat) Reavers do slightly better, but my RBTs are the best warmachine hunters I have. I also take 3 of them in anticipation of new VC army book (1000x better than HE in terms of magic items and customization of characters imo). The RBT's are usually really good, even when I roll poorly. I still manage to kill stuff with them.
Maybe I'll try 1 eagle and just bulk up the swordmasters or add a champion to my Dragon Princes with amulet of light or something.
And yes, the BSB and usually the Ringed mage join the Phoenix Guard, one mage joins the spears usually, the Prince depending on the opponent, sometimes runs around and shoots stuff adding his leadership and helping in combat when needed. Today, I was planning on him taking out the screaming skull catapult, but he narrowly survived 2 direct hits from it and failed his panic and then got eaten by a scorpian because I couldn't roll to hit or wound the stupid thing.

I did say I would find this a tough call, I also like the reliability of RBT. If you think that keeping the 3 RBT's works best for you then I would keep them and just swap the spearman for the gem of courage as you suggested. The new VC's are magic heavy as you would expect and both it and their advance is relentless. So IMO multiple RBT's and lots of high level magic are going to be essential in dealing with them. Congratulations on the win against the TK I hate having to fight them, but rather them than the new VC.
I think this list is really great.
I however must say that 3 RBTs are a lot of points for what they do. Also isn't your prince illegal? He's got two magic weapons and I don't know if it's legal to have on CC magic weapon and one ranged magic weapon but I don't think so.
5000p. High Elves
I didn't think of that, and to be honest, I don't know if there is a ruling on it or not.
I was actually thinking of maybe trying out a different prince setup, which is kind of of out there (unprotected)
274 Prince Dragon Armor, shield great weapon
- Radiant Gem of Hoeth makes the bearer a lvl1 mage
- Vambraces of Defense
this way I can bunker down if needed and the prince can protect the RBT's from tunnellers, fast cav and flyers. Or he can head out with the spearmen or swordmasters as needed.
The other alternative would be to drop the 1 RBT, get an eagle and give me dragon princes a champion with amulet of light
drop the 1 RBT and try to fit some reavers in there somewhere (I'd have to drop a PG though)
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.

Ancalagon is correct, you cannot take a magic bow and a magic CC weapon. I don't know why you'd want one though, if you want to leave him with the infantry; they are going to be marching a lot of the time, and he won't be able to shoot his bow. But more to the point, Great weapon on foot / Lance on horseback >>> any CC magic weapon available, unless you are building against a particular army where you know Foe Bane will be good.
IMO either of the first two options would be better. I would'nt drop any of the PG. The prince in the combination you give will not need the shield since you can't use it whilst using a great wepon. Realy nice list buckeroO
