Okay, so the Archmage and the Noble will join the Phoenix Guard unit giving him and the unit some pretty good cover (-1 to hit etc, etc..) The Bolt Throwers will sit back and gun the enemy forcing them to close with me, when they come in range the Archers will also start peppering them, eventually they will have to close with my Swordmasters and Phoenix Guard units which will mop up any units which come in range. The reason for me giving the Swordmasters the Banner of Swiftness is because most people won't be expecting it, bringing them a little closer. If any comes within charge range of my Bolt Throwers then they will get 6 single bolts (in case of calvary) or 36 bolts (In case of infantry) if anything survives that then there will also be 54 Archer shots coming at them. Now this is more of a defensive list, I am also taking advantage of their shooting and magic.
Here's where I need help, what magic do you normally take? What magic lores is suited to each situation? A brief explanation would be excellent, and one last thing, about the lores would you say which spells I should take since I can take which ever ones I want!
youve made quite a strange list for an High elf.
usually we don't go for the sooting line, because dwarfs, empire and wood elves are better at it.
But if you're sure you want to go this way, there are a couple of things you might want to change.
give the Archmage the silver wand. This way he has 5 out of 6 spells(and if you throw a double, you can choose too!)
Lore of life works great with high elves to make them survive better, but in this list you might want to use your Archmage as an atillery piece and give him Fire or Death.
Give your Noble a Great weapon. S6 ASF is great
The archers are pretty good units. In what formation will you field them?
Swordmasters are great, but you might want WL's in this case because they can kill everything your archers cannot.
The Phoenix guard are great for this purpose, though their numbers are very low right now. Take the armour of caledor out, and up them to 20
6 Boltthrowers is totally brutal.
Oh, and one more thing: why the heck do you want a 2400 point list? why not 2500?
'Its better to have a swordmaster and not need her help, then to need her help and not have her'
Byjugo's WIP Thread
You are not allowed to have 2 arcane items in you list (now dispell scrolls counts as one)
If you want a shooty list it is never wrong with lothern sea guards (if they are many).
they can shoot down a lot a that who still are alive get killed in combat (i often field them in units of 50).
and of coarse as Byjugo said you should give your noble a great weapon.
this list is defensive so why do you want banner of swiftness if they just gonna wait.
then you should take silver wand instead of seerstaff because 5 of 6 spells is almost evyone and you will almost always get the spell you want.
i dont think you will need the white lions when you got 6 bolt throwers.
and why do you want 2400 points instead of 2500.
an army that seeks to fight without the protection of the eagle claws is clearly courageous or inept. either way, í wish no part in it - Eolaran Greyhawk, Seamaster.
I guess its 'the new thing' now that we've gone back to percentage based army selection to chose a number which, when divided by four, gives a more even number.
In my group we've started doing 1600pts instead of 1500pts for example.
I know that this can seem silly - its not that hard to didvide 2500 or 1500 by four - but I'm personally liking the 1600pts limit at least =)
About the army list: I'm still reasonably new to High Elves, but I find that the banner of Sorcery is awesome - perhabs you could fit it in your PG unit?
