ok im thi nking of running this list korhil and the chariots act as my hammer for this army the spear elves are my anvil and my white lion units are their for flank charging for the spear elves and the rbts are there because i dont know if i should add in more spear elves more white lions another mage or just leave it the way it is
anyways it goes like this

Korhil, chariot-270
Archmage, talisman of protection, seer staff, dispel scroll-285

20 spearelves, fc-205
20 spearelves, fc-205

10 white lions, fc-185
10 white lions, fc-185
10 white lions, fc-185
lion chariot-140
lion chariot-140

bolt thrower-100
bolt thrower-100

korhil is staying in the chariot regardless just because he is so much better in there and the mage will be lore of high magic and put 5+ wardsave on korhil and then fury of khaine on the unit korhil will charge
im thinking of adding in a unit of maneaters (using lions) maybe 3 with heavy armor and cathayan long swords
i was told that you couldnt use lions as man eaters is there any way of getting around that
thanx in advance

I think your maneater list would do better. More shooting and better charge range with the ogres, er... big lions ; )

to be honest i liked the look of the first list more, i would try to lose the archers and put the spearelves back in, i also find that white lions should be feilded in units of ten, or in maxed out units of twenty. in my experience units of fifteen are not too efficient as they are too small to reliably win combat as an anvil unit, too expensive to be a throwaway unit and much too excessive as a flanking unit

the second list with ogres is there more to fluff out the army the more white lions the better for the theme of my army

You'de be a lot better off without the maneaters.

You can get another unit of 17 white lions with full command for the points of the ogre maneaters.
How about not using special character's?

i want to use krohil he is the whole reason why i chose this army and he is the only one aloud to ride the lion chariot

and would more white lions be better than maneaters when i play against alot of magic heavy and ranged armies they seem they can take more damage and get to the other end of the bored alot faster than the white lions

ok what about this list

arch mage, level 4, seer staff-290
korhil, chariot-270

10 archers-110
10 archers-110

10 white lions, full command-185
10 white lions, full command-185
10 white lions, full command-185
10 white lions, full command-185
white lion chariot-140
white lion chariot-140

Its tricky that desicion, as youd only have 2 blocks of infantry, but they would be more effective. I suppose its your descion, however have you considered two of 10 and one of 20? best of both worlds then

take 4 white lion units and korhil

ok ive done this list the mage is now a level 3 but it has more items to make him more offensive
korhil is still the same and ive swaped archers for spear elves to fill in the core units choices

Archmage, seer staff, ring of fury, talisman of protection-305
Korhil, chariot 270

10 spearmen-90
10 spearmen-90

20 white lions, full command-335
12 white lions, full command-215

2 white lion chariots-280

2 rbts -200

Your first list was best. High elf infantry are imba.

something you could also try is taking 3 units of 15 white lions that way they are all balanced and have the same effectiveness.

ok so go with the first list but is a level 3 arch mage enough magic defence or should i loose one of the white lions units and go for another level 2 mage???

make your mage lv4 with staff of solidarity and 4 powerstones (or 3 stones and a scroll). he really doesnt need a seerstaff when at lv4

I agree about the Lvl 4 with the powerstones...but I think that you are going to be suseptable to enemy magic wither way.

either as above, or add a banner of sorcery and give him a book of hoeth.
or if you are feeling particularly nasty, do what i sometimes do and just go for teclis and a banner of sorcery

i will go for teclis but only in 2500 and yeah with a banner of sorcery i wa thinking of making a sorcer with lion cloak(just to stick with the fluff) and put a lion head on the staff and use it as counts as teclis just to burn people
