    3000 points list against the elves of Athel Loren

    Hi guys,
    Soon I'll play against my friend with his wood elves.
    It will be a 3000 point battle so this is what I was thinking of:

    Lord Elurian
    sword of hoeth
    armour of caledor

    Archmage Arion (level 4)
    ring of fury
    starwood staff

    Xillion (noble) BSB
    battle banner
    shield/ dragon armour/ barded horse (he'll go with the dragon princes)

    Finreir (level 2 mage)
    1 dispel scroll
    jewel of dusk

    3 x 10 archers
    all 3 with musicians

    9 dragon princes
    full comand

    20 phoenix guard
    full comand
    dragon horn
    war banner

    20 sword masters
    full comand
    skeinsliver
    banner of elliryon

    20 white lions
    full comand
    banner of sorcery

    3 bolt throwers

    please tell me what you think of it.
    Bye!

    Armour is good, but does he need the Sword of Hoeth against light armoured, low toughness enemies. I'd say no and given him the Blade of Leaping Gold instead. What about giving him Talisman of Loec to give him some extra punch?

    Archmage Arion (level 4)
    ring of fury
    starwood staff
    This guy is good.

    Xillion (noble) BSB
    battle banner
    shield/ dragon armour/ barded horse (he'll go with the dragon princes)
    Here you can save some points by dropping the Dragon Armour. As far as I know, the WE don't have any flaming attacks.

    Finreir (level 2 mage)
    1 dispel scroll
    jewel of dusk
    Fine.

    3 x 10 archers
    all 3 with musicians
    Have never tried that many, but they should do well against WE.

    9 dragon princes
    full comand
    Why that many? You're paying a lot of points for them, and I think you would do better by splitting them in two units of 6 if you get some spare points.

    20 phoenix guard
    full comand
    dragon horn
    war banner
    Fine.

    20 sword masters
    full comand
    skeinsliver
    banner of elliryon
    Interesting. It's a lot of points but I guess you'll need the numbers in this unit.

    20 white lions
    full comand
    banner of sorcery
    A bit large for my taste. I would have split them up and given the Banner of Sorcery to the PG instead.

    3 bolt throwers
    Fine.

    please tell me what you think of it.
    Bye!
    Good list with some adjustments. Are you going to play defensive or offensive? I would recommend defensive with this list as if you go on the offensive your archers and RBT's will be next to wasted points.

    I want to know where you are putting your characters, what kind of list your opponent are fielding if you know and what lores you are using.

    Hi herman,

    tanks for your comments. I'm going to change my lord Elurian. Arion is going to use High magic and Finreir lore of life. I was thinking of putting Xillion in that unit of dragon prices because that unit will together with Xillion face a unit of wild riders joinded by Orion. About the Sword masters: yes I know it is trickey but if I can get them in combat and protect them with shield of saphery they should do their job.
    Those white lions are going to start behind a wood get trough it, make sure it's clean from ennemy scouts or whatever he puts in it and them move up to his "gunline" consisting of probably 40 glade guard. That why i need 20, to have enough combat resolution because of their ranks to compensate their 'low' amount of attacks.

    I'm not sure what I 'm going to play, probably move up all my combat units and leave my archers and bolt throwers their where they start. I actually don't know what I could else.
    regards,

    I actually think that you could use some shadow warriors, there should be plenty of terrain and they can get amongst his glade gaurd and do a good amount of damage with their high weapon skill and hatred (unless the 1 unit has 40 guys in it not 4 units of 10).

    I also think that you should put the banner of Ellyrion on the Dragon Princes, You will have a hard enough job pinning down his wild riders even with the banner, that does make protecting the Sword masters an issue though, but the pressure applied by the White lions and Shadow warriors might be enough.

    Good Luck either way
