Here is my first go at a 1550pt aarmy list, i think its legal, will welcome any feedback guys thanks.
1 archmage lvl 3 325pts
Noble- barded mount, H armour, shield and 25pts of magic items 132pts (I intend for the noble to joing the dragon princes)
30 spearmen- sentinel, musician and SB and magic banner 320pts
12 archers-w light armour 168pts
12 Sword masters-bladelord and magic items, musician, SB and magic banner 285pts (may drop magic banner/s if points do not allow)
5 dragon princes- musician, SB with magic banner 220pts
1 RBT 100pts
Really odd points limit, why not go to 1600 for easy 25%?
The mage could use some protection probably the Talisman of Protection in the rulebook and you need to specify a lore for him to use. To be honest with 3 spells that you are rolling for High is probably your best bet, the only really bad spell in the lore is Stubborn spell and even that has its uses. The rest are just really cheap for what they do and don't rely on getting other spells like life does. With 4 or 5 spells I would say use Life.
You may as well state the magic items and banners that you are intending to use, that isn't a breach of copyright and it gives us a little more to go on.
Good luck and let us know how any games go.
Id say swap archers for a few more spears and a second rpb. Your range and damage output is better, and your spears are more survivable.
Thanks for the replies guys, yeah its a weird points limit coz i just went with what i wanted lol rather than give my self a limit and stick to it. Was going to keep the archmage alone but give him : staff of saphery to choose spells, guardian phoenix for a ward save and amulet of fire for a bit of magic resistance was going to give my noble just the helm of fortune to increase the armour save and allow a reroll.
The spearmen were going to get the lion standard. As for the rest I havent really thought too much into was gonna ask for some advice rele.
The models i have are:
5 D princes
1 mounted noble
12 S Masters.
I also have teclis alith anar and a prince on dragon but I dont rele have enuf core so cudnt rele see a way of using these models. What would you guys come up with out of this?
Lvl 4 Archmage Seerstaff of saphery with Guardian Phoenix/Talisman of Protection
Noble, Great Weapon (for str5 every turn), Dragon Armour, Barded steed, shield and helm of fortune for 2+ rerollable. Maybe a ward save if you can afford it
30 spearmen FC, banner of arcane protection/lion standard
10 archers (light armour is a waste imo)
5 Dragon Princes FC, maybe a Warbanner or whatever else you want.
12 Swordmasters FC
Then theres about 130 points left for magic items or other units if you buy them eg. eagles
Thanks looks like a sound list to me whats the total points value there?
Think its about 13xx, variable on the banners and choice of magical items.
kool, Thanks. May take off the Bolth thrower and make it a 1200 pt army. Alot of people are telling me bolt throwers are useless nowadays
I would advise you keep the bolt thrower.
Bolt throwers are far from auto include any more. I like them a lot (I own 6) for clearing the field of obnoxiousness, like fast cav and skirmishers, and to soften up monsters.
They will rarely kill 100 points of stuff. Its hard to justify them under that mentality. However, in smaller point games, id say it may be pretty sweet. It can really help you deal with things the rest of your army cant, and with units being smaller in low point games, its hits will mean more. The only way to really gauge its usefullness to you is play a couple games with it, and figure out if you like it.
Yea guess your right, thanks for the help mate.Hopefully get chance to have a battle with this list in the near future
