Title says it.. what is the best way to go about wiping out a 3000 point high elf teclis super magic powered army? opinions and lists welcome
You could be cheap and do two Gen 2 Slann . You'd destroy them in magic phase. Or play a Sacred Host of Tepok list that would work pretty well to.
The Old Ones have not forgotten me!
Basically just adjust your army to suit his weaknesses. A high magic powered army for HE will be costing then harshly in points and the CC phase. By taking the Sacred host of Tepok you can pretty much nullify their worst magic (thank you OldMagik), use a couple of salamander units to pick off anything that tries to charge you and counter charge with a mostly CC based army. Terradons may work here because i doubt he will be packing a huge ranged amount since he will probably feel his magic missiles will supply enough ranged attacks...prove him wrong by picking off some casters. Since you dont need to bother with the points drain of a slann (unless you want to try to outduel teclis) you can pack a seriously tough Oldblood to provide the head of your choice of hammer units
Hope some ideas there helps
thanks, those are good ideas i was thinking i wanted to try to dominate CC so I might go with that. I've never faced teclis though so I was worried that choosing to not worry about his magic phase could mean him blowing all of my units away before they ever annhiliate his.
Terradons kill him easy. Take a large unit. Fly in, 6 s4 attacks on him, fly out. If it doesn't kill him, try again next turn
You'd be surprised how many dispel dice u can harvest even in 2k with Tepok spawning army, im playing against HE as well and i can field 11 dispel dice quite easily.
if teclis is out there on his own,he's easy to kill T2 no save. skink skirmishers could do nicely to take him out
you coudl of course always use the cursed totem against him. toughness tests on T2? tasty >=]
i would think spell sniping an ecellent means of killing him though. with a bane head you can use direct targeting spells spells from lores such as death to cause direct damage to tecilis your self ;Y

[16:19] <@Alzer> Arky's right though
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> I know he is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> He usually is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> Sometimes it's intentional.
[00:01] <+zubus> i love you, ya skirt wearin nothern monkey! ^_^
i think really all you have to worry about is if he hides teclis into a unit, he coudl be quite nasty to ferret out if hes tucked in with a unit of swordmasters or white lions, especially if there are other HE CC characters around too
go mailly on close combat skinks could work against low toughness and armour saves a word of advice watch out 4 pheonix guard and target his magic users drain magic would be awsome watch out for dragon princes a level 2 mage on a dragon for 385 points will wreak havok so put your skinks in many small units so if he attacks he cant stop ur shooting I once saw a dragon mage stop 30 thundreers shooting from the start of the match( ok thats four words of advice)good luck
