Greetings.

Finally got my book yesterday. And directly I just had to throw me on it and make a list.
I had a very good idea of how I wanted the army to look. And I am very pleased with the
list. I just want to have fun. For once, instead of thinking too much about how competitive
it is. And I am not interested in changing anything (unless something better comes along that
I have not thought of).

Loremaster.
- Level 2.
- Book of Hoeth.
- Talisman of preservation.

Noble.
- BSB.
- Great weapon.
- Armour of Caledor.

Mage (High magic).
- Level 2
- Dispel scroll.

40 Spearmen.
- Full command.

5 Ellyrian reavers.
- Musician.
- Bows & spears.

- Musician.
- Bows & spears.

17 Swordmasters.
- Full command (Banner of the world dragon).

28 White lions.
- Full command.

5 Shadow warriors.

5 Shadow warriors.

Great eagle.

Frostheart Phoenix.

Total: 2399 pts

This was the first (and only) list I did. That is how pleased I am.
Loremaster goes with Swordmasters and the mage and BSB with
the White lions.

Thank you for watching. Comments and feedback always welcomed.

What I would say is I think maybe you will get more out of your core with archers.

You can get 36 archers with full command, or even 2 units of 18 with musicians.

That way you get another drop and they can support you with killing chaff and they're just as good as fighters as spearmen.

I don't have any archers. Maybe switch spearmen for sea guards?

I was thinking about jumping on the Silverhelm train. Just drop the Sea guard/Spearmen.
But I'm not sure about how to shuffle around the points to fit in lets say 15 Silverhems.
Suggestions?

Maybe something like this?

I am guessing all your characters go into the Sword Masters unit? I think this is a pretty cool list. Personally, I'd trade away the Reavers for more Silver Helms/Spearmen. I'd say the best shot would be to have Phoenix Guard/Silver Helms, Spearmen/Sword Masters as your hammer/anvil combinations.

I would also consider combining your units of Shadow Warriors or trading them in. They aren't all that great, sadly (they are among my favorite units in the canon). Other than that? Consider Armor of Silvered Steel for the Loremaster rather than the ToP. Or give him a "fighting" build. He's one of those characters that you can really customize and not go wrong.

Your lsit looks quite fun, and I'd definitely like to see how it does in the future.

My thoughts around the Shadow warriors and Reavers are thet they would be harassers/redirectors.
Combined with the Eagles I would force my opponents to focus some attention towards them. But
that is just a theory. Shadow warriors shooting from the back/flanks. Eagles taking out warmachines
and Reavers rushing forward doing what they can. And when it comes to characters, my first idea was
to have the mage and BSB with Lions and Loremaster in Swordmaster unit. But all eggs in one basket?
Is that better? All characters in Swordmasters as you said?

The Loremaster combo you have chosen may seem a bit obvious.
However what about the setup I am currently running:
- Book of Hoeth
- Sword of Might
- Shield of the Merwym
- Golden Crown of Atrazar

4+ save with a 4++ Parry save and a 2++ on the first wound suffered.
I hide the guy in a Swordmaster bunker with BoTW and he has yet to die in 7 games.

Finally came up with some alterations to the list. It is not the best but this is what I came up with
so that I would get the points up. Gave swiftsense to the eagles, kept warrior bane for duels and monsters,
gave the ironcurse icon to the mage because there are a few warmachines out there. Lastly I gave the
White lions Banner of eternal flame, this is something I am not sure about. Don't want someone with a 2+ ward
against flaming attacks to bog them down.
