Hey, I'm new to high elves/fantasy, I'll be buying my first HE box set soon
Anyway I thought you mite want to take a look at my list.
8 Ellyrian Reavers
Muscian, ellyrian Standard (if possible, I have the old HE codex), Harbinger
12 Dragon Princes
Muscian, Lion Standard, drakemaster (biting blade)
20 White Lions + special character (mage inside too)
21 swordmasters of Hoeth
Muscian, Lion Standard, Blade Lord (biting blade)
10 Archers x 3
Repeater Bolt Thrower
I'm probably a few points over, and I'll probably have to drop a few Hoeth swordmasters and dragon princes.
Anyway the list is set-up top to bottom - right to left or left to right. So e.g. the Repeater will take the left flank while the ellyrian reavers take the right.
Also the Hoeth swordsmen and dragon princes will use the white lions to block LOS from Missiles and magic... when the white lions will be charged the following turn the swordmasters/Dragon Princes move out (left or right) to get a straight line counter charge the following turn on the unit that will charge the white lions..
What do you guys and gals think? I'd also like to know what you prefer, dragon princes or silver helms and why?

I might write like a ork but i fight like a poet.
Some one tell me they have ever seen a nightbringer die from a Nemesis Force Weapon.
I don't know if you used to play a long time ago or not but unit sizes are generally smaller than what you have given.
12 Dragon Princes is very large as most of its combat resolution comes from it sttacks, and the extra points you spend on the back rank are a bit of a waste. The same can be said for the unit of 8 Ellyrion Reavers and the 21 Swordmasters.
Both the Dragon Princes and the Swordmasters should really be split into 2 units, 6 and 6 for DPs and 14 and 7 for the SM's.
Magic items are also unique, so you can only take Biting blade once in the army, and it replaces any mundane Weaponry, ie Your Swordmaster Champion puts down his Greatsword (+2 Strength) in favour of the biting blade (-1 to armour save), a very bad change, "Vauls Edge" would be a cool magic item upgrade for a mundane weapon, giving it an additional -1 to armour save and making it magical for 15 pts or something, but unfortunately it doesn't exist. Ellyrion Reavers can no longer take Magical Banners.
Korhil, the White Lion Special Character is now a hero in his own right and purchased as such. A solitary mage will probably have very little impact on the game, except to help you control the enemy magic phase.
If you don't mind me asking which Army Book do you have, the list looks like it is from 5th edition but that is from a very long time ago.
ok 2 things:
1 WHFB armies do NOT have a codex, its an ARMYBOOK!
2 Get yourself a copy of your respective armybook before you do anything else!

Alloniare has covered the points I would as well. TBH you probably haven't got enough of an edge in Leadership - I would get a Noble in tehre somewhere at the very least, in order to get the Ld 9 for the majority of your units.
Korhil would be a good general in this sort of army, but you will probably find yourself getting eaten by big scary monmsters else magicked to death. A couple of scroll caddies is a must at 2000 points.
