I have been thinking of making a highelf army. An army without superskilled warriors, massive dragons and braided monsterlions. An army with ranks upon ranks with diciplined spearmen, puny archers and knight in silver helmets.
My question is, can a Highelf army be effective without all itīs special and rare units (except silverhelmets which are still plain enough for me)?

For characters Iīm thinking of buying the two plastic kits and be done with them.
