    2250 exact

    basic idea is phoenix guard hold the centre while my other units wipe out the flanks before folding back in .. very basic but very effective. oh the fact i have no lords isn't a mistake apart from wanting to squeeze every pointy eared warrior into my army as can fit i also wanted no question to who was leading, it's only right that defence of the temple should be handled by the dude in charge of it


    Please do not post points costs of units or characters that have no upgrades in future - GN out

    I like the look of this army but it could use some cavalry for a fast counter attack these could be accompanied by the noble, this would give your army alot of mobility and it will have a solid center. To make the points you could reduce both spearmen units to 20 and the archers to 10 and also remove a tiranoc chariot, this could get you 5 dragon prices or 8 silver helms with shields both of these would also have a full command.

    I love the theme and even like most of the choices you made. This could really turn into a neat modelling force. I would change a few thing though or at least make a few suggestions to help you in game play. I don't think you have to have Dragon Princes to win with HE this edition. You could do an all infantry list and still hold your own.

    tiranoc chariot ;

    5 shadow warriors, 1 shadow walker ; 92 I don't think the shadow walker helps you much here. He has to be in combat to add any advantage and that's the last place you want these guys.

    18 phoenix guard, full command, warbanner, amulet of light ; 335

    core=

    14 archers ; really 10-12 is the only decent size unless you're guaranteed a hill. Even then I think they are only worth having 10 because they are easy points for any unit that can reach out and charge them.

    24 spearmen, full command ; 241 20 is probably sufficient unless you're thinking these guys are going to take casualties and are just dying to have full ranks.

    24 spearmen, full command ; 241

    heroes=

    caradryan ; *general If you want to go cheap, and more effective, I would get another noble with armor of caledor, great weapon and guardian phoenix. Caradryan is not worth the points in my opinion and can't fight his way out of a wet paper bag with only 3 str 4 attacks. Good ward save, but that's it. He's got to keep your BSB alive. A prince would give you some other options too, by dropping some of the extra numbers of troops, you could either get more special crack troops or a prince. Having 2 units of phoenix guard migt be worth considering or conver some phoenix guard into swordmasters and have a unit of SM to add some kills to your combats. They would look the part that way and still fit the theme.

    noble, bsb, battle banner, sheild ; 192 *both he and the general accompany the phoenix guard give this guy some armor at least and preferably a barded horse. He is worth a lot of points, but has no more protection that your spearman champion. This guy is so underprotected, it's scary, also a lot of players call the battle banner cheese, if you care about that.

    mage, lv2, scroll, silver wand ; 165

    mage, lv2, scroll, tricksters pendant ; 185jewel of dusk would be helpful if you want to get a spell off. Power stones for each mage would also help if there was something you were desperately need to cast.

    my shadow warriors will get into combat though thier primary job is machine hunting and ideally 1 round of shooting should reduce their number to 2 crew then a next turn charge will finish them off

    i just really like archers i wouldn't be adverse to droppin a few but their isn't a great deal i could do with the points atm

    20 is sufficient if u run ur units in ranks of 5 however i'm fond of units 6 wide so 24 is needed to maintain impact + looks cool

    caradryan is in there for fluff and model purposes primarily and a kamikaze dwarf lord bomber secondary

    again due to the fact i love the model i wouldn't mount the bsb but i could give hime dragon armour with points from droppin an archer or 2

    i run a generalist list so it's safer for the mages to have scrolls, the tricksters pendant is purely for fun it's hilarious to see orks and ogres having to roll twice they almost always blow up

    see i'm in two minds about cavalry on one hand they are incredebly useful ... in the other theres my sheer and utter hatred of moddeling and painting them (somthing i discovered a while back while doing brets) in the end the army plays very defensively with the chariots and eagles doing the countering

    regardless i wouldn't take the bsb away from the phoeinx guard without it they just wouldn't be able to kill enough to win combat and while hard are still elves and as such would eventually be ground down
