Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey theres an upcomming 1k tournament at the local GW so its using HoH rules. I have yet to play a "real" game with my HE, but I've been ripping it up at warbands Lustria so im hoping things should go good. Any comments/ suggestions would be appreciated on this first draft of my HE army list.
Mage w/ lvl2; Ring of Fury; Jewel of Dusk; Pure of Heart; probibly Lore of Heavens
Commander w/ Heavy Armour; Shield; Fusil of Conflagration
+ Great Eagle
Silver Helms x5 w/ Musician; Heavy Armour; Shield
Dragon Princes x5 w/ Musician; Banner of Sorcery
Bolt Thrower x1
1) I personally don't like the fusil, I would much rather take a sword of might and enchanted shield for the points
2) You don't have a holding unit of any type. If an enemy with large numbers, ie skaven or goblins make it to your lines, you are done for!!
3) I would choose high magic for the mage, get seer and a silver wand, and maybe give the ring to the commander, that way you can pick fury of Khaine, curse of arrow attraction and one other!!
If you could answer these concerns, then maybe i'll be able to understand the list better
Your more then right, without a holding unit a proper ranked up unit will have a field day against me. However in my experience so far if I consontrate my fire on one unit for 1-2 turns I usually at least cause a panic checkif not kill them off. Know this list will have more acrhers and a bolt thrower to add to that. Fusil of conflagration is just something I see as being effective since it will be on my eagle and march blocking. Plus it will aloow me to flame those ranked units before they get to my line. While highmagic is good I would need seer, and that would screw both my characters up as I need the ring of fury. Heavens is for A)the rerolls which are so important especiallly with a bolt thrower and hopefully get one of the magic missiles for mage hunting. Also the reason I gave a musician to eeach cav unit is so they can run and rally (hopefully) Sure its playing chicken but it may buy me enough time for some more shooting.
I fail to see how giving seer to you mage is a disadvantage.
If you gave him seer and jewel of dusk, and gave you commander the ring of fury, (which would be much more effective than the fusil any day), then you could have the best of both worlds!!
Curse of arrow attraction is essential if you are having a shooting list, and although rerolls would be useful, the ability to reroll all hits would be better!!
This is of course only one mans opinion
dragon princes r a waste o time, swap em off fo another bolt thower and sum more silver helms, also swap the gr8 eagle for a normal steed n put ur commander in with the silver helms, that way ul hav a cavalry unit that might b able 2 actuli do sumthing
