View Full Version : Combat Oriented High Elves - 1000 Points

13-06-2008, 02:36
Not satisfied with my last 1K list with the LSG and such I decided to step back a bit and apply what I've learned.

Noble: Armour of Caledor, Amulet of Light, Great Weapon
10 Archers
14 Phoenix Guard: Musician
12 White Lions: Musician
5 Silver Helms
5 Ellyrian Reavers
Repeater Bolt Thrower
Great Eagle

Total: 995 points

What have I learned?

1) Shooting is necessary, critical at lower points games. Can't dismiss it. An RBT backed up by Archers does plenty.

2) Mobility. Sword Masters are wonderfully killy but White Lions are stubborn and ignore woods. The fact that I can put my Noble in there and hunt me some Ethereals or Treethingies can't be overlooked.

3) Silver Helms really don't suck. They're suboptimal, but they're dependable heavy cav. At least you won't be so disappointed if they fluff all their charge attacks.

4) I miss cheap rank denying units. Hence the need for the two cavalry who'll have to pull double duties.

5) Spearmen have made me too defensive. I march across the field and plonk down in front of people expecting them to charge in... Even though the PG aren't the hardest hitting guys out there I wouldn't hesistate throwing them in against the toughest fire.
