3 Themed HE lists, hopefully competitive:) What do you think?

I'm not too convinced by the theming.

The second list seems to have Dragon Princes plonked in from nowhere, and the first just seems to be a hotch-potch of units from all over the place.

I'm probably notorious for this by now, but my first question with any themed list is: have you included spearmen and/or silverhelms? By the background, these two units are the bread and butter of any High Elf army, regardless of province. I'm therefore slightly suspicious when all three lists have the minimum core 10 archer buyouts, and dragon princes in lieu of silverhelms.

Ok, I may be a miserable pain in the **** with this, but I firmly believe that theming a list means more than just filling out your special choices with one type of unit :).

I have to agree. If the army isn't from Caledor, why the dragon princes/dragon mage?

I'd see the cult of Asuryan list as being interesting if you had spearmen/archers are devotees of Asuryan, who are backed up by lots of Phoenix Guard (perhaps with the PG special character).

Of the three lists, only the third one seems really themed to me.

Ok I apologise. I forgot that spearelves & silver helms are a must (atleast spearelves) in almost every themed list, just wanted the lists to be more competitive:p, but these are more themed lists than competitive ones so I will change them:)


If the army isn't from Caledor, why the dragon mage?

It was because of the Dragon Mage in the Phoenix list I started to make these 3 themed lists in the first place. You see, my brother has been converting & painting a Phoenix for me & the Dragon Mage seemed to be the perfect way to include it (ok it's not immune to fire & no ward save but it's the closest you can get)


Of the three lists, only the third one seems really themed to me.

Reworking the lists now, hope you'll see the other ones as themed too;)
