Hi. I was just thinking. All those new improved and overall fancy High elves can fight without the urgent need of strong characters. So why not enlarge the number of elves in an armylist. So I made a 2250p army which I hope to be effective and especially intimidating. Let me know what you think. Any suggestions which do not diminish the numbers too much are welcome.

Characters:
L1 mage + 2 scrolls

Core:
- 20 spearman + Stand + mus
- 20 spearman + Stand + mus

- 10 Archers
- 10 Archers

Special:

- 6 Silver Helms + stand + champ + sh
- 6 Dragon princes + stand + (banner of ellyrion)
- tiranoc chariot
- 18 swordmaster + stand + mus + champ + (banner arcane protection)
- 18 phoenix guard + stand +mus + champ + (champ has amulet of fire)
- 5 ellyrian reavers

Rare:
- 2 repeater bolttrowers
- 2 great eagles (go mage hunting)

in total 2248

113 models, 1 chariot, 2 monsters and 2 warmachines

I was thinking to swap a special slot to add some shadow warriors, just to hunt mages, but I can't decide which special unit.
What are good tactics/changes to minimize the magic weakness without paying hundreds of points to 2 or 3 characters.
I really like fluffy armies. So I want to avoid cheesy list as much as possible. I already have a Brettonian army of 2000p with 63 knights.

please comment,
