I'm replacing the 2 units of Ellyrion Reavers in my army and I need advice on what to replace them with.

Which is better to have:

A.

Dragon Princes(6)
~Standard Bearer
~Banner of Ellyrion

Dragon Princes(6)
~Standard Bearer
~Banner of Sorcery

3x Lion Chariot

Or B.

Dragon Princes(5)
~Standard Bearer
~Lion Banner

Dragon Princes(5)
~Standard Bearer
~Banner of Ellyrion

Dragon Princes(5)
~Standard Bearer
~Banner of Sorcery

2x Lion Chariot

I voted for B, Dragon Princes are harder to kill than the chariots and they are more manouverable too.

I'm a little confused... Are you removing 2 units of reavers and putting in 5 other units instead for the same points? :confused:

I originally had 2 units of DP, 2 Chariots, and 2 Reavers. I'm asking which would be better:

A. Adding a DP to each unit and a chariot

or

B. Just a unit of DP with the Lion Standard

Sorry for the confusion.

OK thanks for clearing things up. I would still vote for B though.

Be is more durable and more versaltile. Two chariots are enough.

Ah that makes more sense. I was just wondering how big those two units were when I realized something was wrong. :p

I definitely agree with Aranel, B is better.

B is fine, 2 chariots are plenty for -2000pts army

Ugh, I hate to say it but B is probably better. I love units of 6 cav, but it's hard to argue with 3 units of Dragon Princes. Unless you're worried about comp scores, then for the love of God don't max out all your special/rare slots :p
