First attempt at an 8th ed 2250 army list, for a local semi-competitive tournament:
Archmage - level 4 (forlaiths robe, seer staff and sacred incense) taking lore of life
Dragon mage - level 2 (guardian phoenix and silver wand) taking lore of fire
Battle standard bearer (2 handed weapon, dragon armour and reaver bow)
2 x 28 Lothern sea guard, full command
14 x swordmasters, full command (banner of sorcery and skiensliver)
5 x ellyrian reavers, musician
2 x tiranoc chariot
I felt that this was a fairly balanced army list, but a little worried about a lack of offensive punch and ways to deal with lots of armour, also unsure which unit to deploy my two characters in...
Any suggestions/comments/criticisms welcome - have about 5,000pts of helfs (bar dragon princes - cant stand the models) so can put in pretty much anything else as a substitute. Thanks.
I like the characters that you have taken, was thinking of trying to fit in a dragon mage into my list somehow, but yeah the think you miss out on in this list is numbers.
If you fought a shooting army (dwarfs, empire) you may be in trouble.
I would drop the bolt thrower for 2 eagles, for killing warmachines, tying up shooters(flank charge them), or killing lone characters, or directing attacks on them base to base. When i use a dragon mage i escort him with the eagles. Maybe drop the the reavers and chariots for some pheonix guard or some white lions, WLs kill armoured troops well and pheonix guard are a good bunker for you level 4, then put the banner of socery on them.
Just play test the army a few times and see how it plays, then tweek it, just know theirs always the option to switch stuff around.
