    I've would let beside the Ellyrian reavers and the Shadow walker and take instead 2 Great Eagles to hunt the canons he probably uses. Unfortunately we have one of the worst Light Cavalry unit in the game (of course it's maybe only my opinion, but 5 reavers for 95 points... and of 5 shots maybe 3 will hit and 2 will make an armour save....) But if you want to use them don't give them spears but maybe add a musician.

    Also, instead of giving the Banner of Ellyrion to the DP take the banner that gives you an additional +1 to the combat resolution (i think it's called Battle Banner in english, but i'm not sure).

    I hpe I could help you :-)

    HE fast cav is good, it has 9 movement right? thats awesome. Though I would drop the shadow warriors for 2 eagles. You could also drop a level 2 mage if you wanted, I usually find a level 4 and 1 level 2 enough especially considering one is a level 4, but it will really out magic everything so its still not bad to going that heavy.

    I think the shadows for 2 eagles is a really good call, I just get blinded by the fact that THEYRE CALLED "SHADOW WARRIORS" which is a great name for a unit.

    In terms of magic in that list there are only 2 level 1 mages. Its Teclis who is the mage, not Tyrion.

    Tyrion is the Prince who DOESN'T DIE EVER.

    I like the banner of Ellyrion in the unit where Tyrion will go because the opponent might think i cant get to them... but...

    Thanks for the comments

    IN your list you have written Teclis, and now I am confused as to which it is Tyrion or Teclis.

    I would keep the spears on the Reavers and drop the bows, with no spears you will almost never charge as you just give up combat resolution (no kills and a couple of deaths) with spears then you can consider the charge.

    Drop the shadow walker to afford this, otherwise looks good as.

    Looks like a lot of magic defense if it is Teclis, but about right if it's Tyrion.
    Cheers Allonairre

    for bsb graeat weapons are 2 handed, can you use 2 hands with a banner?

    against empire drop the reavers, they will get shot to pieces and get banenr of arcane protection for dragon princes as such an expensize unit will die from batteries of cannon

    have 15 swordmasters and your shadow warriors will kill those dumb crews ^^

    Hello,

    as I told, it's my opinion about the ellyrian reavers, I prefer playing with shadow warriors and great eagles (movement 20).
