    2500pt tournament list

    So I'm taking this list to a local tourney in January. The tournament isn't using the khaine magic rules and there's no nagash or khal franz ascendant. The list is fairly standard dual Phoenix with cav bus.

    LORDS
    Archmage
    Book of hoeth, talisman preservation, lvl4 life, elven steed

    Prince
    Barded steed, armour of destiny, shield, sword of anti-heroes, dragonbane gem, ironcurse icon

    HEROES
    Noble
    Bsb, lance, barded steed, dragon armour, shield, banner of the world dragon

    Mage
    Lvl2 high, khaines ring of fury, dispell scroll, elven steed

    CORE
    14 silver helms
    Full command, shields

    5 ellyrian reavers
    Musician

    5 ellyrian reavers
    Musician

    5 ellyrian reavers
    Musician, bows

    SPECIAL
    24 Phoenix guard
    Full command, razor standard

    RARE
    Frostheart Phoenix

    Frostheart Phoenix

    2500pts

    It's a very standard list I understand. Basically all mounted characters make up the big cav bus. The phoenix guard and the cav bus plow down the centre of my opponent with the frost Phoenix's flank to support. The only thing I thought about changing was the razor standard to the banner of swiftness.

    What do people think does this list stand up too the current meta?

    I think that you could end up getting your chaff in the way of your own units if you are not careful.
    The list is good. The only issue I have is putting mages into combat units, they will be targeted and they will die.
    Last issue is the prince has 2 enchanted items, so you will have to drop one.

    I would drop one unit of reavers in favor of one small unit of archers to bunker down the lvl 2 and stick the lvl 4 with one of the other reaver units.
    This way they will not have to deal with any combat threats too often.
    Upon wings of iron they fall upon the foe

    Well I'm not too afraid of my lvl 4 being targeted because he's got a 4+ ward.

    If I was to change the list so that my cav bus was like this:

    Archmage (sits in the 1st rank)
    Lvl4 (shadow), book of hoeth, talisman of preservation, elven steed

    Prince (1st rank)
    Barded steed, shield, armour of destiny, sword of anti heroes, dragonbane gem, ironcurse icon

    Noble(1st rank)
    Bsb, barded steed, shield, lance, dragon armour, BotWD

    Mage(2nd rank)
    Lvl2 (high), khaines ring of fury, dispell scroll, elven steed

    14 silver helms (command in 1st rank)
    Shields, full command

    This would give me a lot more protection for my cav bus by having high magic and would also give me a lot more protection for my lvl2.

    Do you think this would improve the list?

    Your lacking high strength attacks. It's not an optimised list but should do ok. You have alot of characters the general consensus is lvl 4 Mage and bsb necessary and maybe a second level 2 Mage. Princes are to get you dragon after that again general consensus is he is useless.

    The thing with the silver bis is it lacks strength after the charge I had some success with a bus with 4 nobles one bsb champ and standard in front and then level 4 beast in second rank with 5 silvers and then a back rank of 6 for 18. Then savage beast the nobles and watch the enemies fall. Brets are better at this.

    You have not alot in your list for 2.5k you have a small small anvil in 24 phoenix guard they excel at this roll but at this points level I really would like to see a minimum of 30.

    Also I would take flamespyre to help break down enemy ranks so your small units can break them

    Hope this helps
