    New to High Elves Need Help

    Play alot of 40k and vampire counts and am looking at a new WFB army so I'm going to proxy some lists to see which army to go for, it's between Empire, High Elves and Bretonnians. I like the number of troops the Empire can bring to the table (I play guard in 40k mainly) but the elite nature of the high elves army is interesting to me.

    The only problem is I think I've over done the elite troops, should I drop some guys for more spearmen? can this list work or does it last focus? I'm also afraid it's too light on magic defense with only 5 DD and 2 scrolls in 2.5k a VC player can have 10-14 power dice pretty easily.

    Lords and Heroes:
    Alith Anar XXX
    Korhil XXX
    Mage 185
    2 Dispel Scrolls, Silver wand, extra magic level
    Mage 175
    Annulian Crystal, extra magic level
    745
    Core:
    Spearmen x25 275
    Full Command, Standard of the Lion
    Spearmen x20 205

    In terms of the magic thing I guess that you know what sort of defence you need. I have only had very limited success with a medium magic phase. You could drop the BoS and the additional levels on the mages and change Alith Anar to Eltharion.

    He is a slightly better combat hero to bolster the Phoenix Gaurd or White Lions, and add an additional dispel dice.

    Other things I would definitely change,
    Lion Standard to the White Lions (stubborn and immunity to fear etc will be great)
    Put Korhil in the PG (stubborn and immune to fear then)
    The numbers on the spears should keep the spears safeish could give them magic resistance if you like (do vampires cast many offensive spells).
    Give the Warbanner to the Phoenix Gaurd

    Maybe put in something to flank but that is not really needed,

    I really want to put in a BSB, make your stubborn units awesome, maybe change a mage into BSB with Radiant Gem of Hoeth, will lose the crystal though and that may not be worth it.

    Good luck
    Cheers Allonairre
