Your dragonmage can't have both the silver wand and seerstaff, since they're both arcane items (you're only allowed 1!) I would go with the silverwand since it, effectively, means that you're granted an extra powerdice.

Personally not a fan of lothern sea guard, but if you like them you like them.

I would drop the Sword of might on the dragon princes. Having a magical weapon means you're not allowed to use your other weapon, thus meaning you won't benefit from his lance on the charge. The sword of mighty simply doesn't compensate for the loss of S on charge and extra pts.

With the drop of Seerstaff and sword of might you have 50pts to spend. I would spend it on a Banner of Sorcery for your dragon princes, to boast your offensice magic.

And if you can find the pts, you really would need a dispel scroll there somewhere.

Hi there,

Just a few points to help you squeeze the most out of your points given that high elves are so expensive...

If you turned the seaguard into spearmen, you'd save 112 points - thats what, nearly 1/15 of your army's points? You could spash out on a tiranoc chariot, or a unit of shadow warriors (for the shooting you just lost) or ellyrian reavers. [either way you are now +1 unit]

What about if you replaced the Dragon Princes with Silverhelms? I'm pretty sure you could squeeze 2 units of 5 each with a champion out of that unit of six. [you are now +2 units!]

Good luck man, i was going to suggest turning one of your chariots and bolt throwers into a small unit of swordmasters and an eagle as well - variety being the spice of life and all... Still its up to you i realise... Why not post again after you've tested various ideas?

i was looking at making the most of the bolt throwers after my pal said hat they were 1 of the most dangrous units available

sorry to burst your bubble, but that wont work jimbo, since i think atlantis made a mistake,

16 spear elves with full command arent 121 points, but 169, and that makes a hell of a difference,
but thats not the only mistake... the unit of dragon princess you have there cost you 280 points

so i think youll need to redo this list atlantis

Drop Sea guard for archers. You already have spearmen, another very expensive unit of sea guard won't help. With the points won by replacing sea guard with 10 archers, replace a lion chariot with a normal one and add some swordmasters or more Dragon Princes.

Lastly, if a unit of archers shoots at your dragon mage, what defences does he have? T3 and no save is asking for a volley of arrows.

I don't know much about High's as Im a Dark player.

But I know this.

That list has many costly units which will be easily defeated by, for example, a quick flank by Dark Riders?

Most of what I would highlight has been mentioned above.

But why are the Spearmen in 16? I think 18 would work better.

It makes the Dragon Mage 325 points - it gives him a 5+ Ward save :)
