who are your main opponents? All I can think about is how this setup would be great against certain armies, but really bite it against other. I have a hard time seeing the eternal guard being as good without the usual setup either (stubborn w/Eternal Kindred)

Like I said, I don't like this list in a tournament, because there are too many other armies that can tear it apart (ie. magic heavy, toughness4 guys, shooty heavy, etc.)

Well, since the BSB is a noble they are still stubborn but with the banner they also cause fear and give off a MR bubble.

Not quite sure I am with you entirely here. In regards to magic heavy armies I am really only slightly worse off than the majority of WE lists, I do have a scroll caddy and the banner gives off the MR bubble which helps. My Scout noble is also perfect for picking off lone mages and the like. I aslo believe that I have a enough fast movers and heavy hitters to handle nearly anything that gets thrown at me.

well, you know your opponents better than I do. I just see you having problems with the High Elves, Dwarves, lizardmen, O&G and Empire armies I play every week. If your scouts or scout lord can see to shoot, they can be targetted with magic themselves. You only have 3 units with magic resistance and they only have MR1. You can dispel 1 bound and 1 spell a turn. Most High Elf armies have 9 power dice and a bound spell without going magic heavy. A lot of Empire armies are the same including prayers and bound spells, O&G too. The Hunter's talon can only wound on a 4 (except vs. skink priests) at best. Against dwarves and orcs and the like, you're going to have a harder time getting it to work. PoShrikes is allright, but if you're in range to shoot it, then you're in range to get toasted by magic) BoL and AB only works against heavily armored troops. On Dwarves you'll need 5's to wound and orcs could care less because of their numbers.

i'm just sayin against a lot of armies, this won't work as well as you like (at least, it never did for me and I had 5 dispel dice)

Ouch! That BSB is quite expensive and very fragile, he will net a lot of points to the enemy, he is after all T3 with a 6+ save.

Having a scout as your general is a bit problematic as you tend to have them in dangerous situations so you risk giving your opponent another easy 100VP.

I like the rest of your list though. Lots of cool stuff.

I like the list.

You do realise that a character doesn't have to be of the Eternal Kin to join Eternal Guard?

By the way, I really like the Eternal Noble, I have used that one to great effect.

yep, but I think I like him the way he is.

excellent... from the way I understand it the HoDA can be used in a stand and shoot for a bit of a surprise.

I was also thinking about moving the warbanner to the EG, good or bad idea?

A warbanner can be a good thing, but with EG your relying on your stubborn Ld 9 to tar pit your opponent.

I prefer to have my warbanner on the Wildriders, which you do at the moment.
