I was wondering what lores people had had the best luck using Eltharion with?

I'd say you should base your decission on a signature spell. Beasts, Heavens & Shadow are always good, Life will help keeping his mount alive & Death is pretty brutal with Eltharion's Ld10+ability to fly.

Death is by far the best, sig+ld10 really draws out the scrolls.

Fair, I was thinking death, Heavens, maybe light or metal as a fair few of my opponents are going to be using warrriors of chaos a fair bit.
Also,I'm wondering what other casters it is worth having in an army with him in it, as whilst most just say to take an archmage as soon as you can (in this case if I ever played 3000pts games) I'm thinking maybe a couple of hero level mages (maybe one as a dragon mage to provide another big target) instead.

I am toying with taking Eltharion on foot and put him with some infantry. In that case I would likely take Beasts or Metal even. Metal isn't always good but the buffs generally are and final transmutation can be great.

also purple sun the flanks and a more mobile Soulblight.

I believe he also causes terror, doom and darkness something outside the General/BSB bubble, hit in combat.
