So my friend convinced me to get in on 8th edition and we traded IOB sets, so I have 2xHE. I have also acquired 2x lion chariots, mage on foot and 3x great eagle. I will also be looking to either get more seaguards, or preferably about 40 spearmen for my cores.
So from here I would love to hear any input and advice. I would like to build heros/lord to be magic heavy.
By the way I will for the most face: skaven, Lizardmen, and both types of chaos.
I would like to have 3 casters, for lower games I have been considering using eltharion on foot along with 2 level 2 mages. With all three going for damage type lores. Including Death for the chance of generating more dice.
A different and cheaper options is to have a cheap L1 with beast lore for the +1 S/T.
The flip side of the coin would be to use something like Teclis/L4mage along with a dragon mage and possibly a level 1-2 mage if pts allows.
Please share your thoughts and ideas, how would you spend the points, and what lore to use etc. As well as any game experience with lists such as this.

How many points are you aiming at?
I put together a list last night for 2.5k, it looked something like this:
BSB on foot, Dragon Armour, Shield, Helm of Fortune, Great Weapon, Guardian Phoenix
Mage (L2), Silver Wand (I think)
35 LSG, FC + Banner of Arcane Protection
20 LSG, FC
16 Swordmasters, FC
16 Phoenix Guard, FC
Pretty nice looking list that you have there. Seems well rounded, what lore would you use?
I'm not gunning for a set specific list, but I will play mostly 2.5k with the occasional 3k game. I was thinking that for less then 3k I would use the first option with multiple low level mages. And for larger games try and use teclis along with the dragon mage.
