    2250pt High Elf Balanced force

    Have been thinking about expanding my 2000pt army to 2250.

    Here is the list. I'd like some critique before I buy the extra models.

    The idea is to have a strong but balanced list that is fun to play and competitive.

    Lord:

    Arch mage+lvl4+silver wand+ring of fury+talisman of protection+scroll=340

    Heroes:

    Mage+lvl2+seerstaff+scroll=185
    Noble(BS+gw+da+shield+radiant gem=171

    Core:

    10 seaguard+shields+m=135
    23 Spearmen+FC+lion standard=257

    Special:

    19 Pheonix guard+FC+banner of sorcery=365
    6 Dragon princes+m+sb+banner of ellyrion=225
    12 Swordmasters+m=186
    Tiranoc chariot

    Rare:

    2x RBT
    2x Eagles

    Total = 2249


    The idea is to have 2 main combat blocks, the arch mage hiding in the pheonix guard and the BSB in the spearmen.
    With the BSB I'd go for bears anger to make him a force to be reckoned with and help out the spearmen.

    The talisman on the arch mage was to use up the last 10pts!

    Any ideas on how to improve the list?

    The Seagaurd, not worth the points, and Chariots are only cost effective in pairs... IMHO, I perfer using the Book of Hoeth with my Archmage, but thats your call, Musicians are usually a good call but with DP, if they run due to panic, your likely to have rolled a couple 6's or something... There are a lot of small changes I would make... Seerstaff Staff, well never a fan, I dunno... 21 Its all good I guess ^^

    Cheers for the comments.

    The number of spearmen being 23 is so that with the BSB they can make a 6x4 formation.

    I take the point about the chariot, will see how it does.

    Lastly, are the seaguard really that bad? I thought they could maybe act as fire support/RBT guard/melee support unit. You know, jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none

    not a bad list, i'm not sure i like the unit of 12 Sm at 2250 pts, i guess it depends on your oppent. what Vanquisher said about the chariot is true, they work better in pairs in any game over 1k. i'm unsue about the LSG archers would probly be better, but its up to you. as for the BSB what it the point of the gw if he is going to have bears anger cast on him? he can't use a weapon or shield when it's on him, so those are a waste of points, also he lacks armour so anything that can hit half hard will probly beat him, the new warriors of chaos, the dark elf assissen, Dwarf thane, ect

    What don't you like about the unit of 12 swordmasters? Their unit size?

    As for the BSB, the point in giving him the gw and shield is in case he can't get the spell off.

    yea the SM unit size could be a probley be an issue depending on the army you play agianst and the style of play your oppent uses, but then again i'm going by my persoanl expirance and alot of people around here love shooting. as you the gw or shield, pick one casue he can't use both so you'll be wasting one
