Come on guys, I know that everyone is sick of high elf lists, but I would really appreciate a little input.

Cheers,

I have played against high elves, but not actualy read the book, so if I say somehting stupid, tell me.

IMO your PG should carry a War Banner. They have great defence, so mass CR will work well with them.

It can be worth it to add 1 or 2 models to each of your ranked units, so you can keep your full ranks after a light peppering.

To pay for this, I would suggest taking out the lion chariot. If gets you more points then you pay out, add a dragon knight.



Also, When I played against HE that right of hoteth was REAlY annoying. Every phase I had to save 1 or 2 DD to make shure my cavalry were not obliterated. To pay for this, well, with drain magic you don't need too many scrolls.

BUMP unfortunately, still could use some input, I have a game this coming week against the new daemons and would appreciate some more input.

Consider putting Korhil with the Phoenix Guards. Stubborn and Fear is not a bad combination.

Put the BSB in one of the Spears and give the PG Champ the Amulet of Light. That way your toughest unit can deal the magical attacks.

Looks like a solid list. I would, however, ditch the Banner of Arcane Protection. The War or Lion Banners would help out more. If you're facing Daemons I would suggest the Lion Banner then. Else, drop it altogether and give your BSB the Guardian Phoenix for a 5+ Ward save.

Thanks Marwynn, I'll give some more thought to character placement and the unit banners.

the bsb cannot have a great weapon but overall i think it is a good list and maybe you could take a larger unit of white lions instead or2 small ones

Pretty good list tbh. Not much that can be said about it.

Maybe lose the Lion Chariot as they're a bit fragile for their cost...mind you, if you're playing Daemons (who usually don't have much shooting) it should see some action.

Yes the BSB can wield a Great Weapon, unless there's a ruling outside of the Army Book.

The WLs are fine as they are, although it's probably better to bump them up to 12.
