Hi all ,
Lately i have been tempted into making a pre-sundering Nagarythe themed army , with Prince Malekith leading it , Morathi as a sorceress etc, it wouldn't need to be a huge force , as fluffwise i feel i could completely justify it being 1k points however i could go to more , i was just looking for any suggestions on which models , units , and magic items etc to use in the army to emphasise the theme, i am keen to have archers,spearman and shadow warriors in the army , silver helms representing knights of Anlec and possible dark riders using ellyrian reavers rules? to represent the raven heralds.
In short i'm looking for any suggestions that may help me , my biggest worry is if the armour may clash visually.

Pre sundering, there was a much smaller standing army, there wer more dragons, so mages and princes ought to be dragon-based, I would use White Lions rules for maybe Nagarythe Rangers/guards.
There is so little known about the makeup of the army at this time I don't think anyone could cry foul, except Morathi was actually decried by Malekith pre-sundering, and there would be mages i the army, not necessarily sorceresses...
In the novel Nagarythe has quite a large standing army indeed , they have a very spartan feel about them , id prefer to avoid dragons and the like and would rather focus on the martial discipline of Nagarythe's forces.
Could a High elf army at around 1k points survive without swordmasters/white lions/dragon princes etc?
Thanks for the reply !
Sounds like kind of a cool idea.
I would steer away from spearmen as it wasn't until after the sundering that spearmen became the core of the High Elf Army. One of the phoenix kings instituted it along with building th gates.
With that in mind I think that Shadow Warriors, Phoenix Gaurd, Silver Helms, Dragon Princes, Sea Gaurd, Archers and Tiranoc Chariots would make the bulk of the force. Particularly the chariots as Tiranoc and Nagarythe were close. Swordmasters, Spearmen and White Lions didn't exist in their current forms yet.
Can't help too much with which models to use though.
