View Full Version : 1000pts High Elves Competitive

06-10-2010, 10:23
Here's the list I'm thinking of running, stemming from a swapped IoB set (so I have two sets of HE):

1000pt High Elf list

Lvl 2 Mage with Lore of Life, Seerstaff of Saphery and Iron Curse Icon: 170pts (Throne of Vines and Dwellers Below against most opponents)

19 Lothern Seaguard with Shields, Full Command and Banner of the Eternal Flame: 282pts (Mage goes here)

19 Swordmasters of Hoeth with Full Command, Banner of Sorcery and Bladelord with Talisman of Loec: 375pts (Deployed 7 wide)

Tiranoc Chariot: 85pts

Tiranoc Chariot: 85pts

Total: 997pts

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I'd consider taking Throne of Vines and Dwellers, split your dice between them and live free of the fear of miscast. I do like the list though, I wouldn't change it.

Damn, that's a killer list in 1000 pnts... go for it!

Cheers peoples, I hoped that it was pretty good. I just re-jinked it a bit, as I'd miscalculated the points of the swordmasters, wanted to get some flaming attacks in there and thought that a nice square center block would look nicer (means I don't have to convert the second sea guard champ as well, though I don't think that would be hard).

As for which spells, I'm torn between going with throne of vines and dwellers, or throne and regrowth, or regrowth and dwellers. Guess I'll just have to try things out a bit.

Cheers again.

well at 1k i'd either go with dwellers or regrowth, not both. Either would be nasty at 1k.

mage 165

19 LSG w/ FC and banner of EF 277

20 Swordmaster w/ FC with Banner of Sorcery 385, champ with Iron Curse Icon

TC x2 170

total = 997

One unit smaller but it gives you the SM champ which can kill most characters.


Mage 165
19 LSG w/ FC Banner of EF 277
18 SM w/ FC, Banner of Sorcery, champ with Talisman of Loc (Should be able to kill any hero) 365
TC 85
ER w/ bow and spear 105

997. Switching in the ER will let you go after a template WM that is looking to splat your SM unit.

Go with the first one mate.

Ok change the list again, condensed the Swordmasters and got in a champ with talisman of loec. Quite nice to be able to take on any character that presents themselves.

Cheers for your help.

Its ok, not over the top in the slightest though.

Edit: Heres one of my 1,000 point doubles tourney lists:

Lvl 2 Mage: R.Bow, Silver Wand (lore of Life or Shadow) items to taste (Perhaps just wand? And then Bos or A.P on P.G however, a musc. would have to be cut from the spears or P.G)

25 Spears: F.C

20 P.G: F.C

5 D.Ps

Done. Check Please

Well ok, that looks nice list, though I don't see how it is more competitive than mine (though I would say it looks equally as competitive). We both have a similar mage (I quite like mine as I can choose spells though), spears are possibly better than my sea guard, SMs and PGs are equivalent, sacrificing survivability for killing power, and we both have fast units in my chariots and your DPs (very similar in their competitiveness IMO).

Nice list though you've got there, I'm not disputing that point, good luck at tourneys.
