this is the list i want to have at the end of june this year,
LORDS & HEROES
prince, stardragon, A of C, V of defence, talisman of loec, lance
mage, lv2, annulian crystal
mage, lv2, scroll, scroll
24 spearmen, f.c, warbanner
15 white lions, f.c, lion standard
5 dragon princes, drake master, standard bearer, banner of ellyrion
this is 2047 points. i don't want any RBT because this list is ment for combat, and not shooting. the mages will both join a core unit, the dragon princes will help de prince on the stardragon with the tyranoc chariot. the lion chariot will hang around the spearmen and white lions on the other flank and in the centre. i've got 203 points over, but i don't want to buy another unit of dragon princes because they are so expensive. what do i buy to fill the last 203 points? i could drop the levels of the mages by one, because they are here to defend and not to attack, then i would have 273 points to spend on a unit. i don't know what to ad to the list, please help.
you could add a nice block of PG's or SM's.. i should add some pg,s but that's just because i like their fluff
furthermore you could add some marchblockers.. Great eagles, of shadow warriors.. i would add the shadow warriors, but that's because of the fluff again
good solid list tough
yes, if i drop the level upgrades on the mages, the talisman of loec, 4 spearmen and the banner of ellyrion, then i've 334 points for a unit of 20 with full command. then this would be the list.
LORDS & HEROES
prince, star dragon, armour of caledor, vambrecers of defence, lance
mage, annulian crystal
mage, scroll, scroll
20 spearmen, f.c., warbanner
15 white lions, f.c., lion standard
20 phoenix guard, f.c.
5 dragon princes, f.c.
because the mages are to protect, i think two level 1 mages can do what they have to. and by taking some points from a few units i could make a unit of phoenix guard, 20 elves strong. i think 15 is not enough for outnumbering and a 3th rank bonus to win in combat.
I dont like first level mages with the HE but that is just my option.
can't you scrap the command from the phoenix guard, and put the banner of ellyrion back??
i usually take my phoenix guard in multiple small units of 10-15. most of the time this is enough because they won't die, and the enemy will auto-break if they lose the combat..
maybe its best to make it a PG unit of 15 strong, with command, put your extra rank back behind your spears, and get the ellyrion banner back.. i have no idea if that will fit in the points, but i think that's best
yes, gary, it's a bit wierd for me too, to see only two first level mages in 2250 points, but keep in mind they are here for defensive magic, like the shield of saphery and for the scrolls and dispell dice. they're not ment for heavy magic. i just want the cheapest but effective way to protect me from the most heavy magic.
byjugo, i don't know if it's better to put an extra rank with the spears and the B of E with the DP's and make the phoenix guard a unit of 15. i like the unit if they are with 20 elves, because you'r almost sure to outnumber the enemy and ofcourse the B of E is a big advantage for the DP's but if i manouvre them right, i think i'll not need it. i do like the spearmen 24 big, but i need 36 points and i don't know where to take these from, any ideas, except from the PG.
Other options would be less White Lions, which might depend on how you intend to use the unit. Or you could drop the lion chariot and replace it with a small unit of swordmasters and have points left over.
