I like it, but what's this Flame Banner that I keep seeing pop up on 8th HE lists...

Cool list mate, I can't find anything to really bash as it looks pretty gold other than you're bsb being alittle squishy. You could mount him for a better save and loose nothing in his attacks since 2x weapons still are at +2 while mounted, but u'd have to find the points for that somewhere.

Um, i might be wrong, but if he mounts the BSB and puts him in an infantry unit he only gets "look out sir!" on a 4+ instead of a 2+ but i agree, a little squishy. i personally decked him with armor of destiny (5+/4++) and give him a great weapon or something depending on where he sits (my guy is in spears so he's spear and shield 4+/4++)

Also i'd switch the silver wand and seerstaff around. if you roll the same spell twice you get to choose. on 5/6 on the archmage means you'll likely get to choose what spells you want for him. seerstaff on the mage means he gets what he wants too.

i've always realy hated the Tiranoc Chariots. even in the last edition, where str 7 junked them, when fighting armies that didn't have cannons i found they died to archer fire too easily anyhow. do you feel that those 2 chariots will do better than 1 unit of dragonprinces?

I have a unit of DP. And the Chariots are support units.

As for the BSB being Squishy, yeah i did notice that, was considering finding 10 points and throwing an enchanted shield on to him. That or take Lore of Life on the level 2.


I agree, I'll me rotating the Seer Staff and Silver Wand, having played a game with a list roughly resembling this one.

The chariots Im toying with, they are decent filler, and can threaten a flank together. Honestly I took them mostly to get to 2500 right on the button.


I do have some extra points, because apparently the Flame Banner is only 10pts, not 25 like i initially thought.
