Recently my high elves have had a dreadful run of luck so i'm considering rethinking my list.I'm playing against dark elves on wednesday and am torn between two lists. Any opinions in which is better at a non tournament level would be greatly appreciated.

List 1
Lords
Prince on star dragon with star lance vambraces dragon armour and shield
Mage with silver wand and ring of fury
Mage with seer staff and dispel scroll
Core
10 archers
10 archers
Special
5 dragon princes full command
5 dragon princes full command
5 shadow warriors
Rare
repeater bolt thrower
repeater bolt thrower
repeater bolt thrower

I feel this is a strong list but would it be a bit too extreme for a club game ?THe DE player is accustomed to winning so I would like to beat him and turn around my dice rolling form.

A friendlier list i think would be
List 2
Lord
Mage ring of fury and silver wand
Mage seer staff and dispel scroll
Noble bsb with radient gem of hoeth and heavy armour and great weapon
core
10 archers
20 spearmen full command (noble in here 7 x 3 )
Special
5 dragon princes full command
13 sword masters full command (mage in here 7 x 2 )
14 white lions full command with banner of sorcery (mage in here 5x 3)
Rare
repeater bolt thrower
repeater bolt thrower
repeater bolt thrower

which list would you take and why?

high elf shooting isnt strong enough to attempt a gunline list, which is more or less what your first list is.

id go for the second list given the choices, but drop 1 bolt thrower and grab 2 eagles( i think eagles are half cost of a bolt thrower?).

thefirst list isn't a gun line list.The archers were there because sea guard etc can't keep up with the faster elements such as dragon and the princes. The bolt throwers are mainly for killing anything which mioght threaten the aggressive units. I like the second list and might change for the eagles or use ellyrion reavers. The jury is still out on that atm.

I'd be inclined to run list 2, as it brings more variety to the table.

Being a Dark Elf player I will say this much: Asur close combat units are a tall order for us to deal with, so we like to shoot you, alot. Respond accordingly.

take it people on the whole feel that the swap of a bolt thrower for ellyrion reavers is a good swap?
felt that some light cavalry could probably compete with dark riders... as well as out flanking the druchii.It was them or shadow warriors so people disagree I'd love to hear it i still have 20 points left thinking of plonking the war banner on the dragon princes...
