Basic Tactics,
shadow mage goes in (or stands behind, depending on enemy shooting options) the spearmen casting Occam's on them. The Noble goes in the Dragon Princes and charges about wrecking face, the lions are counter charge, flankers and can deal with etherials and big monsters, the bolt throwers sit on the flanks and target monsters and heavy cavalry.

what do people think?

Id rather spend the 200 points for the BTs on 2 eagles, a second level for your mage, a dispell scroll and maybe the flaming banner for your white lions.

I only say this because Ive never had a BT earn its 100 points, ever.

So, Great Eagles > Bolt Throwers, is that the current thinking?

unfortunately the list is for my mate and he has no great eagles.

What do people think about White Lions Vs Sword Masters?

In a unit of 18 like that, white lions, smaller units of like 7 I'd say swordmasters.

I would swap ten spearmen for a unit of archers to act as a bunker for the mage. He's just waiting to die in that unit of spears. Also, a second rank of DPs is a huge waste of attacks (and therefore, points). You're better off with two units of five, even if it means you have to be a little more careful with them.

Just some thoughts.

ten spearmen is 80 points, 7 archers aint no bunker for a mage

then fourteen spearmen. or ten spearmen and use some of the leftover points. my point is that a unit of spearmen is no place for an unprotected mage.

also by the way i'm totally guessing on point values.

thanks for the input guys, i had considered simply standing the mage behind the spearmen. his sole job is to cast Occams on them, if he dies he's no massive loss.

also the spearmen need to be at least 4 ranks for maximum horde formation attacks.

I'm pretty sure high elf spearmen hordes attack in five ranks.

woah woah, the spearmen will do far better in ranks than in a horde, you want like 60+ for a horde I'd say...
