Any one here who runs a really really cheesy army. I'm going to enter a tournament and I want to win this time.
Depends on the points - I would classify Dragon Spam at 2000+ points as really cheesy - Dragon Mage + Prince on Star Dragon, for example, or two Dragon mages...
really I often use dragon spam
I don't know if it works but Teclis backed up by BSB w/ Battle Banner and a Dragon mage (or 2 defensive mages), with archers as core. Special, Phoenix gaurd w/banner of sorcery for Teclis to hide in Shadow warriors for disruption, rare 3 bolt throwers + eagle for further disruption.
It might not be effective (have never played it) but it would definitely be considered cheesy.
Watch out for Hochland long rifles (and cannons) shooting Teclis though, it would deserve that!
Could change Battle Banner for Banner of the World Dragon.
I suggest that you don't play cheese with high elves though, if you must win and there are no soft scores (painting, composition, sportsmanship etc) go with Vampire Counts or Demons (or even Dark Elves) if you have the miniatures, they do it better IMO.
no offense, but cheese does not win tournaments, Knowing how to play, rolling reasonably well and getting decent matchups determines who wins tournaments.
*That's not the sort of thing that flies on LO.*

Hmmm... I would have to agree that 'cheese' isn't going to get a win. Balance is the way for the High Elves. Also, knowing ahead of time (aka scouting the pools) is a great way to get yourself a victory. I do this religiously- I often know who plays what armies competetively in my area, and before a comp. my ears really perk up to hear who's buying what and who favors which new book. That way I can be reasonably sure what type of lists I'll be up against. Obvisouly, this doesn't work in larger venues.
If I were you, I'd post your list into the Army List section, mark it as a Tourney hopeful, post a link to it in this thread, and let us go from there. Maybe (no offense) your whole take on the High Elves is flawed, or you are missing some very useful combos here and there. With decades of experience between us, I'm sure that we on the boards can help you put together something tough.
+1 to the Teclis Defense of Doom though.
I played in th tourney and did ok lets have a bit of fun and put together the cheesyest army we can think of
I was thinking a noble two units of shadow warriors two great eagles and as many archers and RBTs you can fit in. It might not work but it is cheesy.
That army probably isn't all that cheesy because the archers and RBts are soft enough, and HE shooting will not get through cavalry lances from a Bretonnian army, for example.
I classify the following set-up as cheesy:
Prince on Star Dragon with lance, Armour of Caledor, Lance, Temkador's Gauntlets, Amulet of Light etc etc
White Lions led by Caradyran, Banner of Arcane warding
Phoenix Guard led by Korhil with champion holding amulet of fire, Battle Banner
3 x Dragon Princes, one with Banner of Ellyrion, other with Lion Standard, champions have enchanted shield and Dragonscale shield or amulet of light
2 x RBTs
2 x Eagles
2 x small units of Archers
