ickebeebom got me thinking about eltharion with his 0-1 for swordmasters no longer applys rule
which got me thinking about an army of hoth :w00t:
it would include eltharion and a few units of swordmasters
i could even use a lord as bellaner but i doubt the lords stats give this guy any justice
so 2 questions:
what other units could/should i use :wacko: would they stay inside with the fluff of the army?
and would an army with so many swordmasters actually work on the battlefield? or would they be knocked about by shooty stuff?

I like the idea
To keep with the fluff, add in some Mages and Archmages
Are the Swordmasters still a special unit? If they are still I would use mainly small units of silverhelms or archers to take up the core choice and a unit of spearman as core choices.
On the battlefield this army would be mainly defensive to get the full advantage of the Swordmasters special rules. Therefore you could add in Mages and Bolt Throwers to get rid of any missile units the enemy may have and entice them to come to you. It would be a fun army to have. But the list would be fragile against artillery.
yes, unfortunately the swordmasters are still a special so you can only have so many of them. as for filling the cores..... i would use archers.
Hey what's up guys, very new Warhammer, and to HE, but having done my reading...
How about throwing in a few eagles along with those rbts to harry artillery? Between eagles and some Helms you should be able to get around to their artillery and other support. Just a newbie's $.02
swordmasters still remain special so you can only take so many units based on the numbre of points the battle is.
i would take spearmen nad leave the archers at home, use your spearmen to take the charge (they hold really well) adn attack the with the swordmasters

It sounds like a cool idea, try to model your spearmen to have spears on their backs and sowrd and sheild in hand perhaps to make them fit in with the swordmaster theme. But when I read 'Hoth' I thought of Star Wars, a ton of freezing cold high elves dressed as storm troopers charging at the rebels. As for Bellanar, perhaps you could use the eltharion stats for him and just use a lord for Eltharion. I know it would down grade Eltharion but you would still have your kick-@ss Bellanar
Just use LOTS of Swordmaster models and strap spears to their backs. Of course metal models are very expensive...
Time in reconaissance is seldom wasted...
