View Full Version : 2500 point High Elves

16-04-2011, 18:34
After a short hiatus from fantasy I'm about to play my first game since 8th was released. I played a couple of games using high elves when the new rulebook came out, but have mostly played 40k since then.

Tomorow I will likely be facing a 2500 WoC army (although it may change to daemons or DE, but unlikely).

This is the 2500 army list I have come up with, using most of what I have in my collection (except my dragons).

I'm looking for some comments and criticism of the list, as well as any advice on how you might run this:

Prince (General; Elven Steed; Barding; Hand Weapon; Great Weapon; Dragon Armour)
Mask of the Merlord
Vambraces of Defense
Crown of Command

Archmage (Level 4 Upgrade)
Silver Wand
Folariath's Robe
Life Magic

Noble (Great Weapon; Battle Standard Bearer)
Armour of Caledor

18 Archers

30 Lothern Sea Guard (Champion; Musician; Standard Bearer; Shields)

Dragon Princes
6 Dragon Princes of Caledor, (Musician; Standard Bearer; Shields)

20 Phoenix Guard (Champion; Musician; Standard Bearer)
Razor Standard

22 Sword Masters of Hoeth, (Champion; Musician; Standard Bearer)
Banner of Sorcery

1 Repeater Bolt Thrower

The prince rides with the Dragon Princes, the BSB with the Sea Guard for some punch and the Mage is protected by the Phoenix Guard.

RBT's rarley make there points back on there own. Dropping it for 3 more DPs would be better IMO.

Talismain of Saphery would be P-R-O on the mage.

Id rarther have more seaguard inthe big unit to fill core than archers.

Thanks for the response.

I would also definately take more LSG, but unfortunately I'm fielding the maximum amount of minis that I have for them.

I would like to take Talisman of Saphery, If i drop the RBT I can do this, but then I need to make up another 65 points.

Unfortunately the minis I own are limiting me (at least for today).

This is the best I can do:

Drop RBT

Make swordmasters 14 strong instead of 22 (7x2)

Give Talisman of Saphery to Made

take 14 strong unit of White Lions with command.

Are swordmasters more effective in smaller units?

Like the edits alot. two small units of HE hard hitters will do better.

IMO, Swords work best how you have taken them.

Sorry mate but I think mask of the merlord is model on foot only.
