i want to have an offensive army....
i allready bought a regiment of silver helms.
and i don't know what to buy next.
can anyone give me some (good) advice? :unsure:
Chariots, Reavers(for you everyday mage/machine-hunting) Dragon princes..
If you want an offensive army with the High Elves, you would probably want cavalry, as they are faster and hit harder than the infantry, though more expensive.
Id reccomend: get alot of Silver Helms (I have 27 of them, myself), some Dragon Princes (5 will do, including command), 5-10 Ellyrian Reavers (you could use Silver Helm legs (the ones without armoured cloth) and archer torsos for a nice convertion), and you will need at least 2 Great Eagles. That is the main basis of a HE cav army. Also, Chariots are nice for hardhitting, cheap chargers.
- Silver Helms
- Dragon Pricnes
- Ellyrian Reavers
- Great Eagles
i was thinking of 2 regiments of silver helms (16 silver helms in total)
1 regiment of ellyrian reavers (8 in total)
1 regiment of dragon princes (8 in total)
a commander and a mage
i all counted it and i come to al total of 1498 points
Dont do cav units larger than 6, and Reavers should really just be 5 strong. In my opinion, at least, paying 4x23 or 4x26 pts for +1 CR isnt worth it. At all. Always take Musician and Champion for SH and DP, but leave the Bannerman if you dont desperately need it, as its cheap VP for your enemy if you were to break.
Also, with Reavers: Take a musician. Always. No champ nor SBearer.
Slai, if i take your advice i dont think im going to get to 1500 points.
maybe i can add 10 archers.... <_<
what do you think?
If you want offense, you will be advancing and fighting alot of close combat. And what good are archers if the enemy is in CC all the time? None. Thus, I wouldnt get archers... Get Silver Helms, Reavers, DPrinces, Eagles, and Chariots. Thats what makes an offensive cav army. Thats all I have in my cav armies, actually, if you've seen any of my cav lists ^__^ .
i see what ill do.
i think im gonna buy allot of different units and then choose what to putt in.....
maybe im gonna make an offensive and a defensive army.
The great thing about silver helms is that they're core, you can take as many units as you want, cheaper than a lot of heavy calvary in other armies too. If you want all cav and are afraid you will be under in poins (gasp! anything but that) i would just take more units of them.
