    2000 pt 'Hidden Mages' List

    This is a variation I am considering on a hammer and anvil-type list that I've ran recently with a fair amount of success at 2000 points. That list included a lvl 4 Archmage as the Lord choice with 2 lvl 2 Mages, pumping out some serious damage in my magic phases, with a unit of 15 PG w/ Caradryan and a Banner of Sorcery to hide said Mages inside. I experimented with Swordmasters or Silver Helms/Dragon Princes as the hammers, and 36 LSG w/ Shields to act as a "tidebreaker" to protect flanks and my lone RBT. It does well against the 3 opponents I've faced so far (Vampire Counts, Warriors of Chaos, and Greenskins), but I'm curious how this variation will perform and would appreciate any input:

    Lord
    Eltharion w/ Stormwing 490 (General, undetermined Lore, likely Life or High Magic)

    Heroes
    Lv. 2 Mage w/ Silver Wand 145 (Undetermined Lore)
    Noble, BSB, Halberd, Radiant Gem of Hoeth 159 (Undetermined Lore)

    Core
    LSG x 36 w/ Shields, Full Command, Banner of Arcane Protection 518

    Special
    Swordmasters x 20 w/ Full Command 330
    Phoenix Guard x 15 w/ Full Command 255

    Rare
    RBT 100

    Total points: 1997


    I've been debating dropping the Noble as a BSB entirely because Eltharion will be mounted on a Large Target, so his Inspiring Presence range is already increased to 18", meaning if I keep him centered between the PG and LSG, they can both benefit without needing a BSB at all. Although it does help during those crucial combat resolutions.

    i think the idea is fun, but i really don't like your BSB without saves of any kind.
    Any lousy champion has a change of defeating this guy in 1 turn.

    besides that it's a nice, and foremost fun list.

    let us know how it went

    Nope. 25% allowed in each. 2000 point list, so up to 500pts in each.

    I'd rather have a BSB reroll than +1 or 2 on my Ld.

    I would amend the BSB to have a GW, and maybe drop down the SM and up the PG a bit...

    Eltharion cannot choose high magic, only those eight from the rule book.

    Why don't you give the BSB the Banner of the World Dragon, immunity to most spells? In a Phoenix Guard unit, yes! Personally I hate the special characters, don't use them, never will.
