    Just started playing warhammer

    Just started playing warhammer and i just wanted some help on my army list. This is for a 2.5k point game. I would appreciate any kind of feedback for a beginner to the game plzz help me out.

    Well here's the list

    Lords:
    Archmage Level 4 (Lore life): Book of hoeth = 360
    Going in the Phoenix guard

    Heroes:
    Mage level 2 (lore Shadow): Silver wand = 145
    Going in a Spearmen unit

    Noble, barded elven steed, Guardian Phoenix, Great Weapon = 134

    Core:
    -25 Spearmen, Full command = 250

    -25 Spearmen, Full command = 250

    -12 Archers = 132

    Special:
    -24 Phoenix guard, Full command, banner of sorce = 440

    -12 Sword masters, Musician = 186

    -12 Sword masters, Musician = 186

    -5 Dragon princes, Full command, banner of ellyrion = 215

    Rare:

    - Bolt Thrower = 100

    - Bolt Thrower = 100

    Looks pretty good. I only have 2 suggestions really. First- drop your Archers and use the points to boost your Spear Elves to Sea Guard. With 2 RBTs, you don't really need the extra 10" range from the Longbows, and for their cost, the Archers are very overpriced. LSG make better use of their bows, since they can Stand-and-Shoot before levelling their spears.

    Secondly, I'd drop the Mount on your Noble and give him the Battle Standard Bearer upgrade. Having the ability to reroll failed LD tests is absolutely awesome, and when the upgrade is so cheap, you should never pass it up. With him off the mount, you could drop out a Spearman from a regiment (he'll fill in the gap). This will give you enough points to upgrade those Spears.

    I wouldn't worry about the Eagles, they're more of a personal choice. You'll hear people defend them and people tell you that it's not worth losing the RBT. I'd say that if you want eagles, drop your SM regiments down to 10 men each and pick up an Eagle, then possibly drop the Champ from your DPs, and Musicians from the SM and pick up your second Eagle.

    I would give the BSB the Armor of caledor in addition to the guardian phoenix for a 2+/5++ save and replace the halberd with a great weapon.
    The dragonprinces dont need a full command, just keep the standard bearer if you want to keep the banner of Ellyrion.

    Yep- that looks much better. You'll notice that you actually don't lose much from your army. You removed 10 shots at 30" and replaced it with 36 shots at 20".

    You could make the argument for a musician in your Dragon Prince regiment, on the odd chance that you do find yourself fleeing, but that's up to you.

    What I believe would be better

    Totaly agree with this choice

    Heroes:
    Mage level 2 (lore Shadow): Silver wand = 145
    Going in a Lothern seaguard unit
    May I suggest placing him also in phoenix Guards

    Noble, BSB, Guardian Phoenix, Armour of caledor, Great weapon = 168
    Going in a Lothern seaguard unit
    To protect your mage her is a tip Phoenix Guards

    Core:
    -23 Lothern seaguard, Musician, Standard bearer = 314
    -23 Lothern seaguard, Musician, Standard bearer = 314
    (To save a few points merge in a unit of 50 with the extras u get from removing some SM)

    Special:

    -24 Phoenix guard, Full command, banner of sorcery = 440
    (with what I told you they would be reduced to 22 people for 410)

    -12 Sword masters, Musician = 186

    -12 Sword masters, Musician = 186
    (1 unit of 20 full squad for 330 points be better probably for you)

    -5 Dragon princes, Standard bearer, banner of ellyrion = 185
    (Full command I know you dont need it but with what i placed i had 37 points and full comand can be helpfull)

    Rare:

    - Bolt Thrower = 100

    - Bolt Thrower = 100
    (Perfect)
    Total = 2498 pts
    2493 the way I set stuff up but I believe it would be better
