    One or Two mages?

    Hey,

    I am a long time warriors of chaos player, but I am starting a high elf army for an alternative army. I made a list for 2200 points but it isn't really finalized and I'm getting high school graduation money soon so I will spend some of it on the high elf army. My list now includes Teclis, 50 Sea Guard, 14 Swordmasters, 20 Phoenix Guard, 10 Dragon Princes, a BSB, and the rest of the remaining points put to bolt throwers (probably 1-3 or so). This is very flexible still (I'm willing to swap any of this except for Teclis and the BSB.) I don't care about theme or model look or anything (I'm very competitive.) What do you veteran high elf players think is more economic? Just Teclis or Teclis and a lvl 2 wizard. The level 2 would give me access to a different lore and give me an extra channel attempt but are these reasons worth the 100+ points? I mean, high elves have some good stuff and with Teclis, my magic phase is already pretty solid. My second question is which banner I should use with the BSB. I am debating between giving him a razor standard and putting him in the unit of 50 sea guard to give them armour piercing or giving him the banner that makes a unit immune to magic. In this case, I would put him in the unit of swordmasters or maybe mount him and put him in the unit of dragon princes. My concern with this is that a) it's 15 points more expensive b) I can't buff those units with my own protective spells or heal them back with lore of life and c) it would be pointless against armies with little or no magic. Even against armies with sufficient magic, high elves have a strong magic phase and strong magic defense. Do I really need to invest 60 points in that banner?

    Screw the spray gun. I paint my own models!

    Our dudes aren't as hard as WoC - so you're better off using magic items to keep your BSB arrive and sticking magic standards on the units.

    I always bring an Archmage and a lvl. 2 Mage, but recently I've been wanting to try just an Archmage, as I feel I rarely get to use my second mage for anything. I would reccomend trying a couple of matches to see what fits your playing style. Also, what lores are you planning on taking?
