Hi there, I've decided to take a totally different army to the GT this year, I'm resting my usually stalwart Dwarves, and giving a force with some movement a chance. I'm pretty happy with the army as a whole, but think I might be robbing my troops of valuable booster points in favour of strong characters, see what you think:
Ring of fury
Jewel of dusk 325
Dragon Mage (Lv1)
X2 Dispell scrolls 400
With 918 pts total, that is almost half my army allowance, and so some units contain nothing but basic troops. Any ideas?
Also if you had 10 pts to play with and could give a musician to either a unit of Lions or Reavers, bearing both units currenly hold only basic troops, which one would you give the musician to?
I don't think I would take a dragon mage to a tournament unless someone was paying me some serious cash. What's with the weird layout and lack of upgrades? If you're going to pay the points for lvl3, you'd better make him lvl4 and then back him up with 1-2 lvl2s and standard of Magic. foliarth's robes are terrible. They are expensive and completely worthless against attacks made from demons, and most elite troops and characters.
give your noble on chicken a lance.
There's no way I'd take this many points in characters in 2k unless I was out of models. You need an army to back this up and HE are too expensive and frail to last more than a couple of turns based on what I see here. Imagine you'll be playing your dwarves 1st game. These elves (no matter what you have in the rest of your list) wouldn't last more than 2 turns against your dwarves.
Cheers for the advice,
What is the problem with Dragon mages? Are they no good? I must admit to getting carried away with the possibility of using big beasts, as along with magic, it is not a thing we Dwarf players have access to.
If I ditch the robes, what should I take intead to protect my mage, as you said these Elves are rather weak.
The problem with Dragon Mages is that the rider is only T3 and cannot take armour. He is going to die VERY quickly.
I would recommend a nice sized unit of Phoenix Gaurd as protection for your mage.
In terms of your pidgeon noble. I've always liked the set up of:
Noble - Great Eagle, Star Lance, Dragon Armour, Talisman of re-roll everything.
Current painting project: 2300 pts of Dwarfs in 5 weeks.
Well cheers for the advice, I think I'll do a major re work, I've been swayed again a magic heavy force by now, and will probably just take a scroll caddy, to support to strong fighty hero types, (big beasts included of course).
