I have a friend, who is considering starting an army. He wants to begin playing warhammer mostly because he likes the magic element of the game, so my question is basicly, which armies are the magic-heaviest ones?
Many are and can be; here's a bunch:
Daemons ( Tzeentch, ridiculous numbers of powerdice )
Vampire counts ( they need it to raise back models, not terribly offensive magic )
Dark elves ( Offensive is their name )
High Elves ( They've got a good lore, dragon mages are nasty, can choose all lores from the rulebook )
Lizardmen ( Skink priests on engines of the gods ( I am not sure if those are really possible anymore with the percentages in 8th edition ) , Slann in a templeguard bunker )
Warriors of chaos ( their wizards can bring the pain, and aren't fragile in combat either )
High Elves is definitly a very magic heavy army, as we have Teclis, the greatest living mage (fluff-wise) and as the bearded one pointed out, a very good lore. I've faced a WoC magic heavy army before, and that was just nasty.
One of my regular opponents plays empire, and he created a terrifying boundspells army. 2 warrior priests ( 2 boundspells ) , an archlector ( 2 boundspells ) on waraltar ( 1 boundspell ) and a 'one use' item with random spell from the rulebook in it ( 1 boundspell ) , a level 2 wizard ( 2 regular spells ) with a boundspell item ( 1 boundspell ) , so that's 6 boundspells a turn, and a 'one use'.
