Just throwing this out there for opinions. If you had, say 1,500 points, and your goal was a dominating offensive magic army, which army would you go with?
I play TK now, and I'm very close to adding HE as a second army with the goal of making an overwhelming offensive magic phase. I'm thinking Dragon Mage, L2 Mage, Banner of Sorcery and the Annullian Crystal at 1,500pts.
Magic heavy VC seem to focus on IoN spam, Lizards really aren't magic heavy until 2k when they can field a Slaan, I'm not sure that WoC or DoC really have enough magic options at 1,500 to complete with the HEs. At 2k Teclis really takes them to the next level, but I tend to play smaller games thus the focus on a smaller list.
So, is HE the best option at this point level for magic?
Thanks for your advice and opinions!
The nature of Dark Magic is more offensively charged than that of High Magic, which tends to be more defensively charged (I'm not too sure if the DEs still get +1 to cast though).
DoC have the ability to generate magic from units, and the lethal Bolt of Change.
As such, these are the armies I would say:
Even Empire if given all the right things (don't underestimate their flexibility).
I think AFG has the order pretty much right, with TKs scraping in 5th lol Although i can imagine a (Tzeentch) WOC list can also put out the power too...
(Note - Oh look! All the 7th ed armies are at the top! What a shock )
Of course we already have DoC and DE players in our group
Thanks for the list though. It's given me food for thought.
What about Lizards? Don't forget them!
1 Lv 4 and 2 lv 3 eqivalents at 2000 point matches.
Just because they only have access to the 8 lores doesn't mean they can't still dish it out!<--Uranon's Thunderbolt FTW
Not dead, just sleeping
My wife plays Lizards
I have to say Dark Elves. As a player myself beneath a 2k list if everything goes right you can generate an overwhelming amount of power dice. As the points get larger in size I would expect the strength of Dark Elves magic to get more equal to that of lizardmen and chaos, but in lower levels it dominates if you get the right set up.
And my buddy plays DE
He's never brought a heavy magic list though.
I can put out some magic with my empire, with all wizards i can dish some damage but also tend to become very weak CC wise.
