Shield on the BSB is a complete waste if he has Armour of Caledor, since the Armour prevents his save from going lower than 2+.
List really lacks chaff units in my opinion, you have nothing except 10 archers for taking out enemy fast cav, skirmishers and warmachines. God help you if you face off against O&G with double Manglers and warmachines.

With the extra 60 points take an eagle, he'll be useful for hunting warmachines or just generating extra combat res (+3 if you can get him to charge in the rear). Other than that it's a solid list though I'd suggest maybe going with the banner of the eternal flame rather than the banner of swiftness, just to get those flaming attacks if you come across any regening nasties.

Also BSB -
Take great weapon (since HElves take no negatives from using GWs), armour of Caledor, guardian phoenix - that's 168 points (IIRC) which is 2 points cheaper than the guy you have listed with 1 better strength (on attacks) and no redundancies.

Edit:
You may want to chuck in an ironcurse icon to either of the specials units (since the champions have a magic item allowance) - it's cheap and potentially very useful. If you end up with 20 points or so clear take a potion of strength. I tend to keep one as a little trick on my dragon princes to help with monster killing. On a charge he can shoot up to Str 8 with his 3 attacks which helps some against monsters (I'd use the SM champion for this as he has 3 attacks).

@Archaeon. Yeah i'll be at Camberwell. Say hi to me if you see me :P

I don't have a Great Eagle so that's out of the question. That's why I have no idea what to add.

Your heroes = 318pts (168pt bsb + 150pt mage)

25% of 1250 (also know as your heroes allowance) = 312.5

Thus, you need to drop 6pts on heroes. Suggest the GW, as you really have nothing else to drop.

I would normally suggest the dropage of the archers in favour of 313pts of spearmen (which works out as 32). But, as you needd the skirmisher/mangler/warmachine killing potential, i dont see what benefit

and, i know you dont own a great eagle. But, get one. If not for the tournamnet, then for the next game you play. There invaluable.

Yeah My next purchase will be a Great Eagle.

The Mage is only 145 points. The BsB is 168.

As the Quota is 312.5 are you allowed to round up?

I still need to fill in 33 points

thesheriff
12-07-2011, 13:54
No you cant round up. UP TO 312.5. 313 is 0.5pts too many.

The only thing i would recommend is more spearmen.

But it's Impossible to have half a point isn't it?

I guess i'll have to go more spear men. I could add either two more WL or SM or isn't it worth it?
