    New High Elf Player First Army (750pts)

    Hello everyone. With the recent release of the 8th edition there is an escalation league starting at my game store. The first army we need to create is 750pts and one of the armies im leaning towards is a high elf list. I am wanting to do a list with mainly infantry with some magic and bolt throwers with some cavalry thrown in on the flanks. I am also somewhat doing this list However since this is a 750 list ill keep it simple. Any advice is appreciated and needed, thanks for reading mates!

    Lords & Heros:
    - Level 2 Mage
    *w/ Gem of Sunfire, Lore of Fire or Lore of Life

    Core:
    -x15 Lothern Sea Guard
    *w/ Musician, Banner, Sea Master 575

    -x15 Lothern Sea Guard
    *w/ Musician, Banner, Sea Master

    Special:
    -x8 Phoenix Guard
    *w/ Keeper of the Flame, Musician, Standard Bearer

    TOTAL POINTS: 750 POINTS

    With this list i will be able to field almost 40 guys and be able to lay down some fire with my seaguard and mage. The phoenix guard are there because i think they are awsome and will be able to provide some protection for my mage who will be in the unit with them. Tell me what you think, again all thoughts and advice are needed and appreciated. Thanks.

    the gem of sunfire is unworth because it is one use only.
    and in new edition it should be better to have a 24 unit (6x4) of lothern sea guards
    and 8 pheonix guards is never worth, i only play pheonix guards in big blocks (15-30) swordmasters and white lions in smaller units.

    with small changes the list looks like this:

    lvl 2 mage w/seerstaff 165 high magic: number 2 and 4

    24 lothern sea guards w/ shields and full command 313

    15 pheonix guards w/ full command and banner of ellyrion 270

    748/750

    first you cast curse of arrow traction on enemys best unit to get a lot more fire power on enemy or maybe fury of khaine to kill a lot

    Thanks for the tips mate, however with the new magic in the rulebook i really am leaning towards lore of fire, wouldnt that be a better choice as i have so few units i could do much more damage?

    yeah maybe you need more fire power!
    but if you want you can change the mage to a noble and put him in the big block (its really big for 750 pts) of pheonix guards to make the chance of winning the battle and outnumber a lot better! and then your general get + 1 leadership!
