Hi warseer,Fantasy Army: BoC
I've started a new army (high elves).
I've played a few games with them and not won many - typically i've won smaller point games.
Anyways i don't own a single painted army (and this is my 6th army) so i've decided to brave a tournament next year with High Elves meaning i need to paint and play lots.
I've come up with a new list and would be keen to understand feedback:
Lev 4 Archmage - Seer Staff (choose spells), Talisman of Preservation (4+ ward), Dispell scroll - 360pts
Noble BSB - Heavy Armour and shield, battle banner - 196pts
32 spearmen - full command + flaming banner - 323pts
31 spearmen - full command - 304pts
7 Dragon Princes - standard and champion with foe bane (wound on a 2+ is he is fighting a multi wound model) - 275pts
12 Phoenix Guard - standard with banner of sorcery - 242pts
21 White Lions - full command and standard of balance (neutralises frenzy and hatred in the enemy and gives them Immune to psychology) - 390pts
10 Sword Masters - full command - 180ts
10 Sword masters - full command - 180ts
Great Eagle - 50pts
Okay so ideas/ tactics
Archmage - no idea what lore to use, any suggestions? i've tried a few but never seem to pick the right one. I would stick the archmage with the phoenix guard
Noble would go with the white lions as they only have 1 attack each so are likely to take damage in return so his D6+1 can help a lot to the combat res
Spearmen i would play 12" up and would play them deep to try and keep them steadyfast
Dragon Princes would kill any small units or hero's in small units then come back to help
Eagle is just 50pts free and atleast will attract some fire-power as everything else moves up!
Sword masters would sit a little behind the spearmen and on the flanks in the hope that they can counter and support
Would really appriciate feedback and i'm sure i will up-date/ change and maybe even post some pics when i start painting
