I am planning on starting HE and as such I am trying to get a list sorted before building it. I want it to be pretty balanced, hence the list.
14 Whitelions+FC+lion standard=265
5 Dragon princes+m+sb+banner of ellyrion=195
The Archmage would go with the whitelions and the other mage with the 20 spearmen to get 3x7 ranks.
The tiranoc chariot provides support.
My concern is I may not have enough magic power so was thinking of dropping a scroll and a spearman to change the lion standard to the standard of sorcery.
Do you think this would be a good change to make?
Any constructive critisim welcome
It is a pretty good change to make. I find that the Banner of Sorcery is a must have with an Archmage to get him enough dice to be really effective.
I used to love chariots but often can't find a place for them in my lists anymore.
Assuming the BSB will go with the DP then I would try and get a champion (with Helm of Fortune if possible) into your DP unit to protect your BSB from a challenge. If a semi-decent character attacks him he could be squashed and that is a lot of points, not to mention losing the incredibly potent Battle Banner.
I love the outline of this list. It is a wonderful build, and I doff my cap to you, as I might try this list, with a couple of minor personal alterations. If I was looking to comment though, I would try the following:
1) Get the Banner of Sorcery. It will bolster your magic phase, and make you a force to be reckoned with.
2) Replace the White Lions with Phoenix Guard. Their ward save is immense, and causing fear is a nice plus. I just find them more survivable in a straight fight.
New LOChat functions now avaliable.

Cheers for the feedback. I was having a think last night and came up a revised list getting in the banner of sorcery and retaining the 2 scrolls for magic defense.
The only thing is I had to drop the spearmen to a unit size of 18. Although not ideal, I was thinking of putting them in a 3x6 formation. Hopefully they would have enough numbers to hold. Do you think spearmen at unit size of 18 would be effective?
And yes, the BSB was planned to go with the DP's
14 Whitelions+FC+Banner of sorcery=290
5 Dragon princes+FC+banner of ellyrion=215

For spear elves, I look at their frontage based upon my likely opponents, especially enemy cavalry...
A frontage of 12cm = maximum 6 enemy cavalry in b2b contact (including corner to corner) so yes thats a perfect width (It's actually the same as if the unit was 5 wide - as then there would be 4 in direct B2B and 2 corner to corner anyway)
