    I am assuming that the Sphinx is impassable.


    Chameleon Skink placements are a hypothetical. They would be deployed to attack Bolt Throwers on turn 1 (the Chameleons have 24" threat range range).


    My army is fairly good at silencing and withstanding shooting but I think it is still prudent to engage as quickly as possible. The Temple Guard block has 2 banners that give them better charge distance (3D6 with a reroll) so I'm hoping for a turn 2 charge. They have Stubborn o I have no problems going into the wood.


    My Slann will attempt to cast Wildform or Pann's Immpenetrable Pelt when combat is imminent The elves have low strength so this should be effective. Casting will be hard but Focused Ruminations should give me a 2/3 dice advantage and assure a spell gets through each turn.


    I want my Slann to be within 24" of an opposing wizard so I can use Becalming Cogitation and Cupped Hands more effectively.


    Terradons want to drop rocks on Eagles. Poison shots want to go into Bolt Throwers (a unit of 10 skirmishers or 5 chameleons has a 52% chance of killing a Bolt Thrower in 1 round of shooting from 24" range). Skirmishers will try align to be able to stand and shoot eagles but will always go for the artillery first.


    Salamanders want to flame sea guard block.


    The High Elves can stand up to my combat. The Sea Guard can beat my Saurus blocks but the Sea Guard are unwieldy. So my strategy is to limit his shooting damage and then crack open a few of his expensive units/character bunkers.

    Since there are no tactics I'm going to assume that the high elves player would play it the way I would
    The chameleon skinks have a 52% chance of killing an RBT? That still leaves all the archers, seaguard, and 2 or 3 remaining RBT's. Let's just say that, even with S3 shooting, the high elves would win the shooting war. In addition, if there are any wounds left on an RBT the high elves could potentially heal them up if they are close enough. Since the argers are dealing with the skink part, I can assume that the DP's and Prince will deal with the salamanders due to their 2++ against fire (someone correct me if I'm wrong about the flaming attacks)
    If the eagles stay far enough back then the terradons won't be able to fly over them and hit them. That way they can charge, and if they combo charge they could possibly win that fight. While the lizards will get a bunch of points from the RBT's and possibly archers the High Elves should get most of the skinks, at least one unit of salamanders (probably two since the LSG could shoot at them) and one or two of the terradons. Since the High Elves kill more chaff, they win!
    They totally need to put Bagpipers in for the high elves.

    Yeah, anything that doesn't have 'Saurus' in it's name is going to get turned into a pincushion, and maybe even snapped up by the Seaguard and PGs. This is one case where I think that the High Elves might have a bit of an edge. They aren't going to have any problems at all until the Saurus close in, then all hell breaks loose because yeah - Saurus are brutes.

    If the HE player is bright, he's going to pick up MindRazor with that double. Also, that L4 lucked out and basically has every spell he wants right now. Can't complain at all about that. Saurus will drop if hit with Dwellers, and moreover, the Slann isn't particularly resilient to Dwellers either. That could actually do very well for the Elves if they can shut down the Frog.
    Eagles keeping those Saurus at bay will buy the Elves enough time to cash in the points on the Skink regiments. By the time the Saurus close, the Elves should be able to hold on long enough to bag the game.

    I'm agreeing with Stahlfeld, and giving it to The Valiant Host. Even though they all lose by default for not sending tactics

    The High Elves will put everything full of arrows, but those Saurus blocks are Coldblooded and won't break. I can't really see the elves shooting destroying any of the valuable units before they get to charge. The Lizardmen shooting should be able to get good VPs out of bolt-throwers and eagles. When the combat is joined the whole battle probably grinds to halt but some of the high point-value elf units (Dragon Princes and Phoenix Guard come to mind) lack the numbers to take the attrition. Thus, I'll go for a close win for Itza Korconqua.

    In my opinion, it comes down to the High elves shadow magic. Either The Enfeebling foe or The Withering will allow them to kill the saurus very quickly, in combination with either Dwellers or Bolt Thrower shooting. The Slaan can't be relied on to shut down a BoH Archmage, but he can definitely shut down the level 2. The Bolt Throwers can be protected from Chameleon skinks with clever deployment, however there aren't enough units for this to be possible, so there is most likely going to be at least 1 dead bolt thrower turn 1. Wyssans will help keep the Temple Guard alive, and they are all that's needed to dismantle any of the High Elf combat units.

    Victory to Itza Korconqua

    With the Elven magic it is always possible for a crushing victory as saurus are swallowed by the earth or dropped down pits but most likely it will be average results of one spell or so getting through on each side. That brings us to shooting and combat. I think the lizards will eventually win here as the elves are more likely to give up more VP's based on smaller units and more expensive chaff. So I think it will be a stand-off in the middle of the board with Itza Korconqua coming out on top via VP's.

    Itza Korconqua because I think the Lizards will kill more chaff, and in this case chaff is Archer units and Bolt Throwers worth several hundred points. Besides, I want to give the HE player a space for error, which now he doesn't thanks to having no tactics.
