im thinking of doing a a themed army on Ellyrion(sorry if i missed spelled it, dont have my codex on me).i have right now 6 silver helms, 32 spearmen, 12 archers, 8 reavers, 2 bolt throwers, 2 mages, one commander or lord on foot.
im not sure how to theme it around ellyrion, i was thinking getting another 8 more reavers. silver helms kinda work, but its more of Caledor themed. So could you help me out i have 2 more rare slots for dogs of war or some other units.
I also thought of making a unit called ellyrion Knights, which would be just silver helms with light armour. i also have a problem with what im using as my reavers. im using glade riders. which i gave them spearmen heads, and different standard and musicain to make them look more high elfish. how else should i fix them up?
Sorry for all the questions. But i would be very happy if you answer them all.
thanks in advance
well, i would max out your special slots with Elyrian Revears, and then take lots of silver helms to be your core choices, give the silver helms light armor, and use Elyrian reaver models to represent them, to give them a fluffy feel. you coyuld try to take chariots too, but they might not fit in as well... give the conversions feathers, that would help them to look more HEish.
I don't see a prolem with the Ellyrion knights idea, so long as they were painted in appropriate colours. If you wanted to go for an all out cavalry force (which would definetly help the Ellyrion theme) take all your Core as Silver helms, but I think for that the Heavy Armour is a must, Special, go for the Reavers, and I personally wouldn't take any rare, unless you fancy chariots (which are from somewhere else, can't remember exaclty where, so maybe not). Keep the points you would normaly spend on Rare choices for more units of Ellyrion Knigths, or bigger Reaver units. Finally, DO NOT take any dogs of war. They would severly detract from your theme.
Time in reconaissance is seldom wasted...
but then again, you could use dogs of war, and make them HE. they dont necessarily have to be human because their dogs of war, you can convert them to be elves, although there is nothing that can be done about the stats...
