Good evening folks, I need some advice on taking on a high elf army. I have not played in a very long time, but last time I played a high elf army was almost a year ago. I remember being out numbered and out sped. They magic was also very painful. Any thought or advice would be appreciated.
high elfs can be a pain in the ass , but a word of advise is dont brin monsters exept trolls ( thay have good save ) cos high elfs got high str and kill monsters easy and whit the always strike first thay get nasty. hellcannon is good vs high elvs and chariots ( cos chariots inpact hitts goes befor the always strike first ). and dont use Fire spells on them cos many are immun to fire cos of the dragon armoure thay have .
well hopes they helps and good gaming.
As it stands now I run with 2 spawn instead of a chariot, last time I used a chariot against him he messed me up with the lore of beasts. If I get a charge on him with a spawn, as long as they're not the sword masters do you think my spawn would live long enough to do any good?
naa i dont think spown if any good. If u whant monsters use trolls. thay are good agens all he's tropps cos of the regen thay have .
Watch out for drain magic, and his casters riding dragons. Either go full on magic or none at all. Keep in mind that even with ASF spearmen, his normal units will do pitifully poorly against yours. Watch out for the lion chariots! Dragon ogres with great weapons will smash them (and anything else) to peices.
It is hard to counter high elves without knowing his exact playstyle, however.
He loves magic, and shooting. I will consider the dragon ogres, I don't currently owe any, so that may not be an option. His lion chariot is fear causing if I remember correctly, any good way to counter that? Without anything that can dish out a STR 7 hit asides from a charge with lances from Chaos Knights or a dead on shot from a Hellcannon I think I might be out of luck there. Any other suggestions?
if you have any mellee heroes just give them a flail, good chance he might be able to bust a chariot for you.
Chaos Knights with lances are only strength 6 on the charge (their lances do not count as enscorelled weapons, just normal lances (check out WOC Errata on the GW website). Any exalted hero with Great Weapon will crush the chariot (his elves are already ASF so great weapon won't matter). If on Daemonic Mount then he is faster and causes Fear as well.
You would do well use magic defense and anti-shooting if your opponent loves the both. I would take a block of six knights (no champ because champs dont count for rank-and-file restrictions on lookout sir) and give them a blasted standard and mark of Tzeetch for a 4+ ward against shooting and use that unit to hunt war machines because they will own you if you let them sit there. You also might want to drop an exalted hero on a steed of slaanesh with a shield, a flail and Fury (the gift that gives you Magic Res 2) into this unit. He can charge out "18 and kill war machines or chariots (4 Strength 7 WS7 attacks) if you think you can overrun away from the shooting or off the table.
Adding mark of nugle to your most expensive units will also help you against shooting. Bring at least one scroll caddy (level 1 with 2 dispel scrolls to stop "Spirit of the forge" because if he is smart he will take Lore of Metal and wipe out your knights. You should also have a charater with Collar of Khorne/Mark of Tzeentch combo. You have magic res 2 and a 5+ ward.
