Celeborn
Glorfindel

Solid



Haldirs Elves 2 Formations - 195

I'm really not sure about these, i know that they are actually 5 points cheaper than the identical generic, but i feel that you would be better served with more bowmen. Particularly in an elven list where numbers will be scarce, and considering that they aren't intended for combat in general, the banner and the musician are wasted. I would go:

Galadhrim Bowmen (3) - 150


Wood Elf warband glaives, 3 formations, captain and banner - 220

Nice, but i would consider switching the glaives for Longbows. For the same price, they lose the 1 point of Fight value but gain a long bow; which considering that they cannot be shot back unless the enemy are within 12 inches sounds pretty good to me!


Galadhrim 3 formations, shields, captain, banner, stormcaller, hornblower - 350

Nothing but solid, personally i like the stormcaller, particularly in a list with so little other magic, but others may disagree.


Galadhrim knights 4 formations - 200

Again, great, i assume Celeborn goes here? Also, consider shields, the extra protection may come in useful, but then again you may prefer more bows, your call. you could also consider dropping 1 company at this points level, again your call.


Mirkwood sentinals 2 formations - 100

I don't really think that you need these, and on top of that they aren't directly relevant to the rest of your army (unless you are calling them Lothlorien Sentinels). I would remove these.

That would give you 145 points to spend, considering the saving on Haldir's elves and the removal of the sentinels. You could remove the stormcaller and a company of the Galadhrim knights to save an extra 150 points, but again up to you.

I would certainly advise you to flesh out the army a bit, including Glorfindel you have only 5 units, with only one above 3 companies. I really like the Guardians of the Galadhrim court/ Guardian of Caras Galadhon. Particularly in view of the models soon to be released. They are expensive, but they are nice.

A solid base would be my opinion, i little tweaking could result in improvements however.

Good luck and i hope that helps.

I would consider this list more competitive, quite similar to yours...

Epic Heroes
Celeborn
Glorfindel
Haldir

Common

Galadhrim Regiment
3xCompanies (Shields, Captain)

Galadhrim Archer Regiment
3xCompanies (Stormcaller, Haldir)

Woodelf Warband
3xCompanies (Longbows, Captain)

Lothlorien(Mirkwood) Sentinels
3xCompanies (Captain)

Galadhrim Knight Regiment
3xCompanies (Shields, Banner, Celeborn)

Total: 1520p

I think this would give you a relatively balanced force to work with.
