Hey I have benn pondreing a 2nd army for WFB for quite some time this lsit is my latest thought. Please let me know what you think. Another thing to keep in mind is that my current army is a balanced empire force(1 scroll caddie, lots of gun static combat cr) my desire is to build and play something that is very diffrent to this.
Elysian the grim on his griffion
Level2 mage with the antrysliun crystal (-1 power dice for your oppenent +1 disel dice for you)
Level 2 mage with silver wand, dispel scroll, gem of courage
2 units of 14 seafeeares (one with bow and spear) full command, shields
2 units of dragon princes with standard and muscian
2 lion chariots
What do you think ?
Could you make a bit more effort to check your posts before submitting.
That aside, there aren't a lot of details to your list.
I think that one of the Dragon Prince units should take the Banner of Sorcery this will help give you that little oomph in the magic phase.
Would also give the mage the seerstaff instead of the silverwand, better to pick which 2 spells you want than get 3 spells you don't really need.
I think that I would split the seagaurd up into 20 spears and 10 seagaurd.
I would also like to see a couple of eagles in there to redirect chargers away from your cavalry flanks. and maybe an extra bolt thrower.
anyway i posted it at work. okay I thought the seaguard were better because for 3 points i get the ablity to pepper withrange and fight in three ranks. Also I was thinking about the flanks which is why i added the chariots?
I think that I understand,
the point with the eagles is that they can be used to take a charge and force overrun/pursuit in a less desirable direction, you really don't want to use a lion chariot for that.
The grim is fun to play with. You have the dragon princes to support him. I like running two lion chariots, which I could afford three. I had to put Korhil in one. He is our only hero that can ride in one. It gives you a unit str of five therefore you can void rank bonuses if you strike the flank or rear.
Usually you opponent will not accept the charge from two lion chariots unless they are already into combat.
I have to agree with allonairre about the silver wand and the seerstaff. The silverwand I only give to a dragon mage. The banner of sorcery is a must also, just gives you more die to play with.
I do not like the LSG archers and spearman are cheaper and better. That is a personnel choice and I am leaning towards changing my mind about them.
Please keep us updated about how you do.
What am i missing about LSG. they are 12 points apiece and give you both the shooting ability of the archers and the fighting ability of spearmen. When archers get in combat they die also they have no armour so get shot up to and only cost 1 ppoint less. So iwas looking at it like wow for 1 point i get lightarmour and a spear. I thought high Elf epitomized quality over quanity. Another reason forn the LSG was to reinforce the grim taking the fight to nagorath . Revised list pending..
Please do not get me wrong, I just do not like the LSG. That is a presonnel choice and opinion. You are not missing anything. When I was using them I tended to use them as spearman and I would forget about shooting.
yeah if you wer just using them as spearmen thatn you are overpaying by 3 points. Since iw as going to use archers i thought they wer a steal. Since game workshop decided that 5 was a rank as opposed to 4 but did not update their boxes. My 1st purchase was going to be the battlion which comes with 16 spearman and 16 bowmen. so I was going to set up with the full command and 2 spears in the first rank, then for the 2 nd rank all archers and the thrid will be spearmen.
Here is my revised 2k list
eltharion the grim ridiing storm wing
Mage Annulian crystal
Mage seer staff, dispell scroll
5 dragon princes standard, muscian
5 dragon princes banner of sorcery, muscian
2 lion chariot of charce
14 Lothern Sea Guard
I would take the banner of sorcery off of the dragon princes and put it into one of the infantry units. The princes will get into combat and could die. Other than that your list looks okay but is weak in infantry. Keep the chariots around them for protection. please keep us informed about how this works out for you.
