hmm, well, its a quite nice balanced list, personally i'd be tempted too swap the shadow warrios for either a bolt thrower or an eagle, also, dropping enchanted sheild and sword of battle for 3 more spearelves, a mundane sheild, and extra points for bolt thrower might be worthwhile, that way you have 3 ranks of 6 elves + hero, then arches and bolt thrower taking out flankers/hero's units . . . also, dont be afraid too muti-shot warmachine crews =)

what should i use against dwarves. i reallly want to fit a bolthrower in but the shadow warriors are good against warmachines

I would keep the list that you have and just try to shoot the midgets to death... You should be ok but a bolt thrower would make the list really tough...

my worst fear is a massive unit of orcs swarming me, because my units are'nt big enough. should i swap my shadow warriors for a bolt thrower?

16-09-2007, 10:32
Yeah.. high elves are really not practical at those points... given they are themselves very expensive.

eg.. empire can fit nearer a hundred models into the 500 points... and sadly the same goes for orcs.

You just dont have the frontage to protect your flanks ... i'd suggest throwing caution to the wind and taking an offensive cavalry uber unit.

It isn't a bad list; however, you'll lose against dwarves, o&g, and possibly other armies. You don't have ranks, you lack mobility (a part of the shadows), your shooting is poor. However, you do have different units, which should help you during deployment.

Let's try something:
Commander, heavy armour, great weapon, 78p.
1 Unit of Silver Helms 95 p.
1 Unit of Ellyrian Reavers with musician 97p.
1 Unit of 16 Spearmen with musician and standard 174p.
1 Great Eagle 50 p.

You see no shooting, better none than a shooting that kills perhaps 1 enemy every turn (or less...). The great eagle kills warmachine crew better than shadow warriors (costing less). The ellyrian reavers give you fast cav, which is the key. All cav units are here to negate ranks.

the thing ive found when fighting dwarves is that they tend to just sit back and let you come to them. Because of their low movement they will be looking at you coming straight to them so they can hit you with shooting. a bolt thrower is always a must in most HE lists, i never take my HE anywhere without atleast 2, as i only play games of 2000pts or more then this helps when i need an eagle. for a 500 point list id recomend the Eagle. cheaper and more effective at warmachines as mentioned above

what happens when the eagle dies?

19-09-2007, 12:42
what happens when the eagle dies?

It shouldn't. It flies (high mobility= low possibility for your enemy to hit it), isn't a large target, is T4. It has 3 wounds. If it still dies, well, consider that a bolt thrower dies as easily or perhaps even more easily.

yeah! never thought of that.

20-09-2007, 12:28
Just a try. It couldn't work either :) But my opinion is: if your missile fire is ineffective, better no shooting at all.

21-09-2007, 10:43
yeah. high elf shooting sucks reallly badly.
if only we had ap bows
