So I had my first fantasy game today (500 points) against a new orcs and goblins player and won by a landslide
My most valuable squad of the game was by far my repeater bolt thrower killing about 12 black orcs plus black orc big boss in total. However after the game another high elf player told my that a high elf army under 1000 points should not include bolt throwers (as much as I love them) so I was just wondering what you guys think

Well that's highly dependent on your opponent, if he brings O&G I'd say it's not a good idea in general as you'll most likely face huge units of Night Goblins, but as you were up against Black Orcs it was a great idea.
Great job to win though, winning small points games, especially against O&G are hard for HE. Any chance to have a look at your list?
5000p. High Elves
Yeah, this is what I used
Level 2 mage
Jewel of dusk
I know that this is not the best list but I was very limited on the models that I had with fantasy being very new to me

I'd drop the point costs mate, Forum Rules, and besides I don't need them to see what you used.
I dare say it's a pretty unusual list for small points games you have there, but hey, if it works for you...
It's an interesting list and I might be tempted to try it out sometime.
5000p. High Elves
I disagree with that HE player Always use a RBT. My daughter never played at that point level so he could be right. Therefore I have no personnel experience.
First of all, congratulations on your victory.
Your list is a little unconventional as it has only core and rare, not including the mage of course. This is a rare combination, but I can see why it worked at this points level. Lots of shooting with a pretty good magic phase should give you domination in 2 of the 4 phases. Combine that with your superior movement, and you should do it.
Personally my 500pt list is a little different, but it does contain a bolt thrower, as they are easily the most effective shooting we can put out.
Anyway, best of luck with your continuing journey
