Kivena Firecrest, Loremaster of Hoeth @ 355 Pts
Magic Level 4, Pure of Heart, Seer, Ring of Fury, Dispel Scroll, Amulet of Fire

Commander Aeneas @ 149 Pts
Lance; Dragon Armour; Shield; Ithilmar Barding, Blessed Tome, Helm of Fortune, Steed

12 Swordmasters of Hoeth @ 236 Pts
Great Weapon; Heavy Armour; Standard; Musician; Bladelord; Banner of Sorcery

20 SpearElves @ 250 Pts
Spear; Light Armour; Shield; Standard; Musician; Captain

20 SpearElves @ 250 Pts

6 Silver Helms @ 152 Pts
Barding; Lance; Heavy Armour; Shield; Standard

5 Silver Helms @ 129 Pts

2 Tiranoc Chariot @ 170 Pts

3 Repeater Bolt Thrower @ 300 Pts

Casting Pool: 6+D3, Dispel Pool: 4

Total Army Cost: 1991

What can I spend the last 9 points on? And what else is wrong with this army? My only hesitation is that my archmage is a bit too vulnerable - although the targeting rules, Magic Resistance and Walk Between Worlds should keep her out of too much trouble.

I'm basing this army around the archmage by the way, so don't ask me to replace her with two lower level mages. :) One more thing - should I replace one RBT with two Great Eagles?

i'd lose the commander and a unit of silver helms in order to get more mages and a 4th rbt apart from that it looks good

I agree with Plague, but I would make the following alterations

1) Drop the Commander (-149pts)
2) Drop the unit of 5 Silver helms (-129pts)
3) Add a level 2 mage with the annulyian crystal (+170pts)
4) Add a musician to the silver helms
5) Add a unit of 7 shadow warriors (+105pts)

With the shadow warriors you should be able to march block some of the opposition army long enough to make your shooting effective.

I hope this helps :ninja:

dropping one rbt for 2 eagles is the BEST possible change you could make. WITHOUT question!!!

apart from that its probably one of the best lists ive seen on this forum (imo, there arent many good high elf lists here to be honest) . Id keep the commander for challenges, and a little more punch on the charge.

Shadow warriors are garbage. end of story.

Thanks for the replies, especially Lord Anathir - this is my new list, still incomplete:

Athena Firecrest, Loremaster of Hoeth @ 355 Pts
Magic Level 4, Pure of Heart, Seer, Dispel Scroll, 50 more points of undecided magic items

Commander Aeneas Stormwolf @ 147 Pts
Lance; Dragon Armour; Ithilmar Barding, Dragonscale Shield, Ring of Fury, Steed

12 Swordmasters of Hoeth @ 261 Pts
Great Weapon; Heavy Armour; Standard; Musician; Bladelord; Banner of Sorcery, Blessed Tome

20 SpearElves @ 250 Pts
Spear; Light Armour; Shield; Standard; Musician; Captain

20 SpearElves @ 250 Pts
Spear; Light Armour; Shield; Standard; Musician; Captain

5 Silver Helms @ 115 Pts
Barding; Lance; Heavy Armour; Shield

5 Silver Helms @ 115 Pts
Barding; Lance; Heavy Armour; Shield

2 Tiranoc Chariots @ 170 Pts

2 Repeater Bolt Throwers @ 200 Pts

2 Great Eagles @ 100 Pts

Casting Pool: 6+D3, Dispel Pool: 4

Total Army Cost: 1963

The main questions remaining are:

(1) What to give the archmage to help her in both offensive and defensive magic?
(2) How to use up the last 37 points?

Question 2 is really a choice between 3 more Swordmasters (2002pts), 2 Standards for the SHs (1991pts), 2 more horses for each chariot (1991pts), and I'm sure there are other things I could do. The more horses on the chariot thing is simply because I think it would be a cool conversion to do. :)

The only thing I'm worried about is the Swordmasters - they add such a lot to the army (D3 power dice and LD10 beign the main things) but are very fragile. What can I do to make them safer?
