Welcome to Librarium Online!
Whipped up this list today, see what you all think. The main idea was to have the Spears in the centre, flanked with WL and SM to form a solid centre. Missiles setup on a hill, or where ever else they can, Cav flank, Eagles machine hunt, flank, etc. Here it goes:
L - Archmage
Level 4,Seerstaff, Guardian Phoenix
I did my best to keep this guy cheap - it's very easy to get to about 370 points for this guy! Seefstaff allows me to chosoe the lore depending on my opponent. Heavens (for cestial shield) Beasts (for dragons) and metal (for Cav) come to mind...
H - Mage
Level 2, staff of sorcery
H - Noble
Barded steed, shield, dragon armour, lance, Talisman of Loec
C - 20x Spearmen (Archmage here)
C - 12x Archers
S - 14x Swordmasters
S - 14x White Lions
F/C, banner of Sorecery
S - 5x Dragon Princes (Noble here)
F/C, banner of Eleryion
R - RBT
R - RBT
R - Eagle
R - Eag;e
A very good list indeed though it needs some minor adjustments:
Your archmage could drop the seerstaff for silver wand as he already have access to all the lores in the BRB and with silver wand will get 5 out of 6 spells. This makes him cheaper8Y
Your archers should be fielded 10 in a long line so I would drop two of them. I wouldn't recommend fielding your WL in two ranks of seven as they are a flanking unit and that would be a waste of movement. Add one and field them 3X5.
Other than that your list should do fine.
5000p. High Elves
Silver wand vs. Seerstaff is tough for me, coz if I take the Wand, and dont roll the spell I want, I may be screwed and kicking myself (there's usually 1 'must have' spell in the lore - such as Beast Cowers, Spirit of the Forge, Celstial Shield, etc...), that's why I invested those points. You are correct, tho, and it's an easy 20 points if i want them.
Good point about the WL's, didnt really think of that. 5 wiode also means they can hide in woods a little easier. See what I can do...

Some good points there, Bukeroo.
The crystal is a great idea, That change is easy.
I know the Loec is risky, but I think I'd like to at least try it. If it doesn't work out, I can swap it for and Enchanted shield pretty easily.
I dont tend to concern myself too greatly with whether or not a banner will be lost. If the unit is geared for combat, I give it a banner, that's that. Same goes in my Beastherds and Darkriders. 8 Darkriders (or any fast cav I imagine) with muso and standard are an awesome flanking unit, and the banner always helps. It can get costly tho...
Anyway, thanks dude. Id love to get a HE force, but all those damn metal models continue to deter me....see how I go...
