So I learned today that the tournament I'm attending soon doesn't really have any composition requirements besides banning special characters and unpainted&unbased models. I begun by taking all my white lions (45 of them) and putting them in a single unit, filling my core with archers and then taking what characters I could with the basic rare selection I always take. After looking at the list for a while I decided not to and removed dragon princes and some white lions, leaving me with a list like this:



Loremaster: sword of might, shield of 4++ parryward, golden crown of 2++ ward, book of hoeth=330
noble: BSB,GW, armour of caledor=149

14 archers: musician, standard=160
14 archers: musician, standard=160
18 archers: musician, standard=200
37 spearmen: FC, flaming banner=373

36 white lions: FC, banner of world dragon=548

2x1 great eagle=50+50
2x1 bolt thrower=70+70
1 frostheart phoenix=240
=2400
I might have a bit too much core (893pts) but I don't know what I should take instead. Easiest change would be to remove 18 archers and take 6 dragon princes (FC) instead, with a bit of shifting I could get a magic banner for them as well. I'd much rather take 25 phoenix guard with the white lions, but that unit is quite expensive (450 with AP banner)...

you know, if youre going to play with archers like this i would give your noble a Reaver Bow and Razor Banner and putting him in 1 block with lots of archers since you have martial prowes and 3 rankes of HE shooting, you can make blocks of 3x7 or 3x8 they will do a lot more dmg with the AP.

Razor banner was faqed to not apply to bows.

Looks like your going to get a lot of draws

everyone has a hardon for the lore master... Take a level 4 with lore of shadow instead and shred people with archers and toughness debuff, then when they get into hand to hand shred them with Mind razor.

i'm hearing that a lot, but with high armour saves being the new black I haven't had too much luck with it.

get rid of great eagles, take out archers, and take another phoenix.

get rid of loremaster, he's not good at anything, take a lvl 4 instead.
