Hi. In overall it is quite a nice army but I have some suggestions
- First your prince has HOF and vambrace of defence. If you give him a enchanted shield instead of the helm you have the same effect for 15p less. (But a Prince is just not worth it actually).
- Your swordmaster hero is pretty fragile (but cool). Drop the swordmasterhonour and give him the helm of fortune and sword of might. (3+ reroll save and S5).
- 19 swordmaster + full options + warbanner is 278p. More points to spend!
- 2 bolttrowers is enough. Drop the 3rd and add some eagles (march block).
- spearman don't need a champion. 12p for just a champion. A waste of points.
- 6 silverhelms is in my opinion the best number to use.
- Take at least 1 dispel scroll.
- I see you take 20 archers. I am one of the few too but i love them. good skirmishers/ fast cavalry killers.

And if I may suggest. Drop the prince and the commander and take an commander on eagle with the reaver bow. a good mage hunter and If played well very, very annoying.
If you have some points left. Chariots are always handy.

It's a very characterful army list, and I think anyone who played you would say they had a wonderful game.

But you'll have to follow some of brakke's advice if you want to win much. Take at least one dispel scroll and drop one unit of archers. Eagles are great if you have the models.

hhhmmmmm not too sure on the eagles, maybe a chariot or two
i did not see that the vembrances let you re-roll armour save too lol!
silly me

Why not put the hero on a barded steed? Re-rollable 1+ save for 17pts more

Other than that, would only echo what people have said already - 3 boltthrowers is overkill, 20 archers is asking for trouble, the Prince is unlikely to do anything a commander couldn't, eagles are very useful, several small units of silverhelms are more useful than 1 big one....etc

Personally I wouldn't go for the big block of Swordmasters, but that's just my opinion - they've never worked for me.

Good luck in the tourney :)

To be fair, if you're taking 20 Archers and 3 Bolt throwers it's always far more effective to drop half the Archers and take another Bolt Thrower in the first place...

good looking army callum. the only thing i would change is the single bolt thrower no need for it

yeah im thinking of adding in a chariot for that bolt thrower and dropping ten archers for another

24-05-2007, 17:55
two chariots sound better

24-05-2007, 18:10
definately... two chariots and your knights to hit his heavy hitters and the rest to mop up!

good point lee, that would make them a very good mainstay unit

24-05-2007, 20:31
looks realy good now:D

Your list is getting much better.I think it is nice to play with and against it. But I still don't know what you are going to do with 7 silver helms. Including the prince I presume makes 8. In the latest edition you need 10 to get a rank bonus. Drop one or 2 so you have a 6 sized unit. and give your commander a eagle. Then your list would be tourny worthy. Oh and don't forget the scroll

good luck
