hey guys, i've been playing HE about five years, and last summer i thought that now i wanted a new army so i played VC the whole summer, getting up to 3k.
So i've realized that they were not the thing for me, and after a long thinking i've decided to get back to HE.
Taking the mighty elves out of their case made me realize that after all they have been my first army so the painting was also that class.
So i've just decided that i'll just start a new army to play mostly just-for-fun so no need to be competetive, just to look good and be fun to play,
for example i dont want to play a list like: teclis, bsb, 50 sea guards, 2 eagles, 2 rbt, 2x20 sword masters, no. that's not the point. I just want an army that looks good.
So give those theme ideas, and there are no limits of what and what i wouldn't do.
thx for the tip, mate, will be concidered. Oh yeah, just remembered, that some nice fluffy stuff would be cool too.
An army I been thinking about is making a Chrace themed army. with lots of white lions (duh) and using the white lion body's for archers and spearmens. having white lions riding warlions as dragon princes. I think it would make an awesome theme for an army but it could quickly get expensive to make.
for 1,2k of points that would fastly get over 200e/pound/bucks, forjust the lion chariots, and white lions, but will be concidered, let's get those suggestions coming, people!
A list with one lord character on a dragon, plus two dragon mages. Then add the core you need, then Dragon Princes. Dragonspam, mf!
Warhammer Fantasy: Warriors of Chaos, High Elves
Warhammer 40k: Eldar, Space Marines, Orks
love it, but 'cause dragons have just been raped by the new rules, that will be a little less concidered option .
The way I see it you have two choices, theme via a region, Chrace would be cool, Nagarythe would also be cool (terrible gameplay but lots of potential), White Tower could be very competitive, SM and Mage spam and of course Caledor.
Or theme via a story, Some noble, and his house guard (small elite unit) lots of citizen levy to begin with (Silver Helms, Spears etc) then grow the army a bit organically based on advancing fluff, battle results etc. Harder to do but potentially more fun and flexible in the long run.
I think I would go with a story, The key figure in my story would be a mage. Important son of a noble that has a great deal of potential. He has been tasked by the White tower to do something and they have given him a unit of SM 7+ Bladelord to assist in this secret task. Further to that he has the crew of the ship that he has travelled on, (makes up the core of the army) and perhaps some bolt throwers initially (500-1000 point army) further expansioon of the army can then be justified to include whatever you want, but make sure it makes sense in your story. As the army grows your mage can improve, and occassionally may be a smaller cog in a larger undertaking.
to me that sounds really awesome, allonaire. My idea would be a noble and his small force(thinking of a battalion, more spearmen and other stuff?
