If you want this list to turn heads only, I say save your money. You will only be frustrated...

There is no way you can deploy to make use of all those archers, and secondly your opponent probably has something fast that will have a field day hacking their way from one flank to the other.

A list like that only works when your opponent is dumb enough to remain seated in his own deployment zone and doesn't has a ********* of artillery himself.

So basically I'd say.....you've got 1% of ever winning with a list like this.
Go for more combat...

way too much static ranks. you need some sort of close combat abilityif only to protect your archers. Even in a siege game (your archers on walls & such) your oppoant will most likely have something that will come down on you and hack those pretty archers into chaff.

that list could be riped apart all it would take is one fast unit of cavalry or a lord on a dragon and the army would be doomed

Thatīs a joke, isnīt it?
So search your head for serious ideas and show one of them to us! ^^

How about a dragon and some silver helms, letīs say, 3x5 as core choices?
A HE army based on these elements is never wrong.

Even if all you did was trade in half your archers for spearmen, then you'd have a better chance... not to mention an army with almost twice as much variation. If you really want to try an army like this at least use the seaguard list.....:D

Something like that *might* work for say, wood elves...
but I doubt you would do well at all with it.

If you want to do an army like that do wood elves and switch the RBTs for eagles for march blocking. High elf archers can't form a gunline, too fragile, too exspensive, too elven.

Empire gunlines are "better" yet, and are actually pretty damned effective. I'm sure ************* can help you with a list like that.

EDIT: Why have the words gun-line-tastic been censored?

O.O

This army could work against: Lizardmen with no skinks, dwarves with no shooting, goblins with no ranged (possibly).

Wait a second... take a close look at the above ;)
