Wouldn't a Gunline have 4 Bolt throwers?

I would make it 6 Bolt Throwers if your trying to make it a gunline --- drop some archers for this


HE Archers are imo THE worst in the entire game for the amount of points you have to pay for them - until they redo the army book and make them like Wood elves that is

which is why i prefer shadow warriors, which feature heavily in the list

Battle Banner on Swormasters is illegal - far more than 50pts.

Sword of Hoeth imo not good - surely a Reaver Bow and great weapon would be better. Armour of the Gods rather than protection also. (the better save tends to compensate for lack of ward and of ciourse you get +1S). Alternatively downgrade him to a commander and get a mage as well.

Not sure how you will get 33 archers all shooting. I'd have 1 unit of 20 and use the extra points on chariots - perfect for dissuading opponents from charging in blindly. And for gunline purposes shadow warriors are worse - yes they all shoot but they cost a ton. I would drop 1 unit there.

No magic - and more importantly no magic defense. High Elves are one of the armies most affected by being hit by spells thanks to low T and high cost. You need dispel dice.

i was not planning to use this list myself, i was just trying to make an all HE infantry army for a large battle i was planning on playing, and it develpped into a more gunline-type army
