    I've not played WoC before but this army does seem productive.

    You are 4 points short from core, but I guess that is down to your enermy to agree. I would drop the F/C from the archers and add two more LGS(?) as Archers are useless in combat.
    Split the WL's into two units could be more effective.
    I heard taking lots of RBT (Eagle Claws) are effective against WoC so 3 should do nicely.

    Not really much more to say sorry, but good luck.
    High Elves \ Ogre Kingdoms \ Lizardmen \ Blood Angels \ Dark Angels \ Dark Elves
    W100+/D20+/L100+ \ W17/D0/L2 \ W1/D2/L2 \ W3/D0/L3 \ W7/D2/L9 \ W1/D0/L1

    Interestingly enough, I found his list while looking in a forum. This is a friendly game, so I'm just looking at what I need to look out for, his strengths and weaknesses as I'm not too familiar with WoC.

    Lord:
    Lvl 4 Sorcerer Lord: 440 pts.
    Mark of Tzeentch
    Disk of Tzeentch
    Charmed Shield
    Talisman of Preservation
    Infernal Puppet
    Third Eye of Tzeentch
    Stream of Corruption

    Hero:
    Exalted Hero BSB: 206 pts.
    Mark of Tzeentch
    Chaos Steed
    Shield
    Blasted Standard
    (Rides with Chaos Knights)

    Core:
    40 Marauders: 250 pts.
    Mark of Khorne
    Great weapons
    Full Command

    18 Chaos Warriors: 358 pts.
    Mark of Tzeentch
    Shields
    Full Command
    Rapturous Standard

    5 Warhounds: 30 pts.

    5 Warhounds: 30 pts.

    Special:
    15 Chosen: 400 pts.
    Mark of Tzeentch
    Shields
    Halberds
    Full Command
    War Banner
    Favour of the Gods

    5 Chaos Knights: 285 pts.
    Mark of Tzeentch
    Musician
    Standard bearer
    Banner of Rage

    Total: 1999 pts.

    Above is my list.
    My plan is to use the RBT against his Warriors, Archers and Seaguard against his Marauders, Metal Magic against his Knights, and hopefully kill a bunch before they reach my lines. Thoughts?

    Sounds like a solid plan, if ur mages fales to cast on the knights what will u do pepper them with the RBT? Your mage is stil only a lvl 1, casting against a lvl 4 so if your opponent smells your plan i think he'll want to save his costly knights. U could get a eagle and make the marauders charge him, just land in front of them in a good angle and smash there flank

    im a WoC player, and I the absolut worst thing I have faced playing against highelfs is a big unit of swordmasters with the banner making your unit completely immune to magic (WoC have no shooting besides marauder horsemens and hellcannon so no need to worry about shooting). put a noble lord inside the unit with killing blow, or extra attacks.
    remember WoC HAVE to challenge and allways acceot challenges.
    Your noble lord have higher I and AsF even against a chaos lord, and swordmasters simply slice through the majority of anything WoC has =)

    If he is smart, he is going to pit his marauders against your SM's/WL's, and butcher you.
    An eagle would ruin his day. If said Eagle survives the first magic fase.
    He will counter the Eagle with his hounds.

    I wouldn't be to scared for his lord, Tzeentch magic isn't all that. But he will use your spells against you! Keep your casters outside his LoS.
    Shooting him would be a waste, try Magic, especially spells that don't allow for wardsaves.

    Miscast once, and your dead.

    Please feel free to correct my spelling.
