Hi, why is your bsb naked? He won't last a second in combat being t3 and only 2 wounds. It see like easy points for the enemy.

I would suggest at least a 5++ for the archmage too.

Just my thoughts.

Where would u stripmpoints to sort that out

I would reduce the DP to 6 and run them in a single rank so you can maximise on there 2 attacks. That should give you enough points for the talisman of preservation for the mage and the shield of myrm, hvy armour sword of might for the bsb.

Book of Hoeth/Banner of the World Dragon/Unmounted Frostheart Phoenix, max 2

Currently your list is illegal, if it were me I would simply drop the book of hoeth and scroll caddy, then put the scroll on your level 4.

I'm going to sound really stupid here but how can you run 3x3 cavalry? where does it say this in the rules? (I've never considered doing this and I thought it was only Brets that could) Thank you in advance.

In response to your list, the razor standard works really well on PG and makes their halberds a lot more formidable!

You can run units in any formation size you want, they just don't benefit from rank bonuses if they have less than 5. High Elves fight in 3 ranks always so they get the full benefit of having maximum attacks with silver helms while maintaining a very small frontage. This benefits them because less models can attack them back, the only problem is that they can't ever break steadfast or get rank bonuses.

Thanks for clearing that up! I always just assumed minimum frontage was 5!
