Hi! This is my first post here.:yes:
I'm going to play a battle of 4k points. It's 4 armies vs 2. Empire, Bretonia, Wood Elves + High Elves(1k pts each) vs Orcs + Vampire Counts (2k pts each). Me and my team mates are desperate to win this battle, so we thought it was a good idea to post in LO.
I need help with the HE. If you also want to comment on the strategy for the rest of the 3 armies of my team please do so.
Well, we thought:
-WE: archers and flying creatures.
-Bretonia: Cavalry to support the flanks.
-HE: bit of everything.
I'm thinking to include:
2 bolt throwers,
a commander in a great eagle,
5 silver yelms, 10 swordmasters,
a lv 2 mage
+ some archers.
What do you think? Please help!

I think with a 1k army you need 2 core units. I would let the Wood Elves bring thr achers as you have said. If you want Swordmasters and Bolt Throwers you might use this army.
Hero (goes with Swordmasters)
Armor of the Gods
Extra Hand Weapon
pure of heart
1mage level 2
Jewel of Desk
Standard & Musician
2x Bolt Throwers
I think that is 1k on the spot.
With the Swordmasters having the Commander and the Lion Banner they are immune to Terror, Fear and Panic.
If you need 3 core units at 1k switch the Swordmasters with 19 Spearelves with Standard, Musician and Lion Banner.

yes, I agree with you, its better to have more core units.
I would bring the following for 1K.
Mage lvl 2 - seer - channeller - pure of heart - 170
Mage lvl 2 - ring of corin - jewel of the dusk- 180
Mage lvl 2 - ring of fury - 160
5 Silver helms - heavy armor - shield - 115
5 silver helms - heavy armor - 105
Chariot - 85
Chariot - 85
Eagle - 50
Eagle - 50
Now this is totally against what I usually take but if it goes into a 4K total force it's fine.
Here's the idea behind it. HE will have the best magic of all your armies so you should load up on the magic. Empire, WE and Bret's don't have chariots so you should bring those too. Then eagles are 1 for 1 with WE so you should bring them with the HE.
The Empire should bring the infantry with detachments. (also a hellblaster for good measure).
Brets can take the rest of the heavy cav you need and one or 2 more mages (remember O&G and VC will have alot of magic, you will need to be able to dispel this).
WE should bring Dryads and (non warmachine) shooting and a Treeman.
mmmm... interesting. The thing I don't like is having so many mages.
Are Orcs + VC so powerful with magic? 3 mages can be excessive. I would get rid of one and put instead some swordmasters. What do you think?
This will give you 5 DD. I can guarantee you that the VC player alone will have a minimum of 7 with a bound item or two. And that's if he's nice to you. If you deside to get rid of a mage trade it for more 2 chariots. It will work well with empire/bret/WE. There is a reason why they don't have chariots.
another thing to keep in mind is that your opponent has 2 2K armies so he can bring 2 lords.
I'll tell how it worked.
