My first crack at a 2000pt High Elf list

CHARACTERS

Archmage
- Level 4
- Book of Ashur (+1 to cast and dispel)
- Guardian Phoenix (5+ Ward save)
= 365pts

Noble (BSB)
- Great Weapon
- Armour of Caledor (2+ save)
- Pond Stone (Re-rolls missed armour saves)
= 168pts

CORE

25 Spearmen
***BSB Here***
- Full Command
- Banner of Arcane Protection (2 MR = 5+ ward save vs magic)
= 275pts

10 Archers
- Musician
= 115pts

10 Archers
= 110pts

SPECIAL

18 Sword Masters
- Full Command
- Banner of Sorcery (1-3 extra power dice)
= 350pts

18 Sword Masters
- Full Command
- Lion Standard (immune to fear/terror)
= 325pts

RARE

2 Bolt Throwers
= 200pts

2 Eagles
= 100pts

TOTAL POINTS = 1998pts

The book of ashur is pretty impressive on a high elf level 4 archmage. Add to that the extra dice I get from the banner of sorcery and the ability to take some of the nice new magic lores :) I have +5 to cast and +6 to dispel...I may just roll 1 dice a lot :)

The spearmen will form the centre of my army supported on each flank by the nasty swordmasters. I plan on running the spear elves 5X5 and the swordmasters 6X3.

Anyone like the list? How is my character set up?

Well make sure you roll your multiple dice spells first or you may see your magic phase end real quick with a natural 1 or 2 roll.

Book of ashur sounds nice but with a +4 already paying 70pts for an additional +1 isn't really all that. If you had extra points sure.

That said I think you will do better trading in the book for a lv1 or 2 beast mage. This will insure you can keep casting if you do roll a 1 or 2 or you can keep dispelling after your first failed dispel.

Besides, why wouldn't you want S4, T4 spear elves or buffed sword masters.

Overall looks good but you really need to make sure those swordmasters don't get flanked, maybe you can use your eagles and archers to help here.

Beast mage... you know you want to :=)

Book of Ashur gives +1 to casting and dispelling. Not just a meager +1.

I would try and include a Mage with fire lore and flying carpet, just for lols

and aren't swordsmasters hoeth anyway? Take more mages in higher points games

what lore is your mage? (you have to choose during the list build). Looks good, though if i was making a saphery list i'd probably be running 2-4 magi instead of just the one. but thats me.
