Looks like a solid list to me. You're vulnerable to shooting, but I suppose that can be countered through use of magic and your own Bolt Throwers.

Maybe its just me, but I think the best unit in the army are the spearmen. You can usually go six wide and get three ranks. Eighteen spear attacks for a cheap unit. So you may want more of those but its just my opinion. I'm a big beleiver in core units.

looks like a solid list, i really like the lion chariots, but your DP serve the same purpose. Very balanced, but personally I'd start taking it apart with the sword masters so keep in mind most enemies will likely do the same.

Thanks for your replies!

@The SkaerKrow: My main thought was to have my archmage use high magic for offence, and have my mage pick out the rain lord and the howler wind spells to protect me from shooting.

@TheHaunted: Yes, I also like the spears! Too bad that almost no HE list uses them nowdays. I also is a strong core believer, my firts though was to bring a 20 strong archer unit but I decded to buff up the WL's instead.

@D'Haran: My gaming group plays almost only with very balanced lists so I actually tried to make this list balanced, good to hear that you think it is! I'm really not a big fan of Lion Chariots, almost as expensive ans 5 DP's but so much more vulnerable, also a chariot puts out 6+D6 S5 hits on the charge while the DP's do a solid 10 S5 so I like them better. Also, the models are beautiful!

If you can afford DP's they're a very good choice, the Lion Chariot's advantage isn't that it will do more damage than DP's but that it costs less than a decked out unit, gets a free pivot, and causes fear, yes it's more squishy but welcome to HE's. Though either unit will draw alot of attention, I guess I like them partly because often I play against other HE's or a DE list with a death star and impact hits are among those I can rely upon.

Something that should not be overlooked is the fact that Dragon Princes are much faster than Lion Chariots. Chariots are excellent infantry support units, but in mobile/cavalry oriented armies, they're almost out of place. In your list, your Dragon Princes fulfill both the role of hammers, and of outriders. Chariots could not provide you support in the latter of the two roles.

I know chariots cant march but otherwise they are the same speed as dragon princes so i don't think they are really much slower.
