What about metal instead of high magic? Doesn't chaos generally have some pretty high armor saves? It also gives you a nasty nuke.

Not a fan of silver helms, for the price of 1 white lion and 1 swordmaster you could take 10 dragon princes, with 1 extra attack, initiative, leadership and weapon skill, plus the +2 ward vs flaming attacks. Just a suggestion.

Where's the mage going?

Maybe find points to toss the banner of sorcery on the WLs instead of the standard of discipline?

Metal wouldn't be a bad choice. Shadow is another obvious decent choice. Either would be better than High magic I think. Actually, I like Heavens a lot in this matchup. The magic missiles are high S, which is nice against all the high T and armor you're going to see. You'll get decent use out of just about all of those spells.

i think the Mage will go with a group of archers. Metal does seem to be the way to go with him (we just gave the chaos player skullcrushers for his birthday 2 weeks ago).

I would go with Death lore on the mage, I think it's overall better than High because it's a very offensive lore and my view on Helves (which are my army too) are that they should be built as offensive and aggressive as possible.
I also agree with the point before about the Silver Helm exchanged to Dragon Princes. The Princes are much better, Silver Helms in my view are a waste of points, too expensive to be chaff and not very effective as hammers.

Didn't make a battle report, we played the same lists twice. Round 1 was a crushing victory for the high elves! round 2 was a drawn out battle which was a draw in the end.
