So I'm pretty new to this game but I greatly enjoy it and especially playing high elves. I'm in an escalation league and this month is 2500 points so I'm trying to field a competitive list while still working with what I have. I have swordmasters, lions, sea guard, archers, ballistae, and a crapload of cavalry (which I was planning on fielding as proxies for dragon princes, I already cleared it with the league). So this is the list I came up with, it's actually over by about 40 points but I figured as long as I'm posting on here you guys could help me out with some of that too.
Sea guard- 4 ranks 5 wide, with extras on the end. Swordmasters and White Lions ranks 7 models wide, 3 deep (swordmasters will actually be one short in the back rank but oh well). Dragon princes two ranks of 6 wide w/extras behind. BSB with the white lions, mounted hero with dragon princes, archmage in the block of 23 seaguard.
Plan is to get into CC and kill stuff. My only worry for the Dragon Princes is that they'd get mucked up in a tarpit of models. I'm hoping to remedy this with the banner of swiftness (this means I get my choice of combats on turn two with them). Is this still a workable strategy or do the 8th ed rules make this less practical?
I'm also hoping to fit an annulian crystal on my mage but I'm already 40 points over so that might be tricky. Thanks in advance.
Lords: 305 points
Archmage of Life, Level 4 w/Forliath's Robes
Heroes: 286 points
Noble w/Greatweapon, Battle Standard, Armor of Caledor, & Guardian Phoenix
Noble w/Barded Elven Steed, Lance, Enchanted Shield, & Lance
Core: 635 points (625 Minimum)
23 Sea Guard + Full Command
22 Sea Guard + Full Command
Special: 1115 points (1250 max)
20 Swordmasters w/Full Command:
20 White Lions w/Full Command:
13 Dragon Princes w/Banner of Swiftness and Full Command
2 Repeater Bolt Throwers
Total: 2541 (looking to trim it down to 2500 square)
list seems pretty good.. I personally would take of 4 dragon princes (with the noble in this unit its 5x2) this gives you some extra points to spare
give the archmage a book and get rid of the robe, if my calculations are right your total is now about 2475
use your last points to kit your noble on steed proparly! cause the way you fielding him now is just a deathsentence
